Five Reasons to be a G7® Master Printer
Grow your business. Fortune 100 companies, ad agencies, and creatives demand G7 Master status because of the confidence it brings to their print projects. Buyers believe similarity of visual appearance across print products is critical. They now make G7 a buying requirement.
Increase profitability. G7 calibrated printers reduce make-ready time, color correction cycles, press checks, errors and waste. With shrinking profit margins and shorter run lengths, every job and every impression counts.
Publicize and market. Publicize your G7 Master Qualification. Every qualification provides a logo and certificate to display on business cards, brochures and websites. In addition, your qualification is published on IDEAlliance's G7 Master Printer Registry and Database to connect you to print buyers who search for G7 Master printers.
Color consistency. The hallmark of the G7 calibration technology is visually consistent color across multiple presses, proofers, substrates, and facilities. Whether it's offset, digital, wide-format, or newsprint, color reproduction will appear similar to the consumer.
Stay current in your industry and its best practices. Our team of G7 Experts will consult and train your staff on the most current industry methods and practices in color management and process control, from job creation to print.
G7® is part of IDEAlliance's industry-leading set of specifications for achieving gray balance and is the driving force for achieving visual similarity across all print processes. G7 is a specification and is listed as Technical Report (TR) 015 in ANSI/CGATS.
