November 15, 2011, (Pennsauken, NJ) — Disc Makers is proud to announce they have been qualified as a G7 Master by IDEAlliance. This is Disc Makers' second year as a G7 Certified Service Provider. Congratulations to the Print Shop crew, who made this happen, and work hard every day to deliver a quality product to our customers.
What is G7 Master Qualification?
The IDEAlliance G7 Master Qualification program identifies Printing Companies, Prepress Service Providers and Agencies who have been trained to use the G7 Proof-to-Print Process and can consistently produce proofs and/or print to the G7 Method. The G7 Master Qualification Seal means that the company uses the most modern technology, techniques, proofing, press controls and standards required to produce a close visual match from proof to print.
What will the G7 Certification mean for Disc Makers customers?
It means that Disc Makers' print shop is conforming to some of the strictest industry standards, that our staff is trained and our equipment maintained to the industry's best-practices, and that ultimately, your print run will be produced to the highest standards possible.
On a practical level, it means that we are better able to match your proof, printed digitally or otherwise. It also means that for reorders or large runs, where a job may be run over the course of several days, fluctuations in color will be minimized (or eliminated).
