DMM, Inc., has achieved the G7® Master Facility Qualification. The Facility qualification was awarded by Idealliance®, a not-for-profit industry group dedicated to guiding print production best practices, specifications, and standards worldwide. DMM, Inc. joins a select group of print service providers who have successfully completed training, examination and qualification across all their print production processes, both gray scale and color – validating their capabilities to the highest level of global industry standards.
G7 is Idealliance’s industry-leading set of best practices for achieving gray balance and is the driving force for achieving visual similarity across all print processes. The application of this method enables printers to reproduce a similar visual appearance across all printing types and substrates. A target print is printed on a stable printing system and measurements of that target are used to correct the ink curves to bring the printing system into alignment with the G7 ideal neutral density curve. Aligning various printing methods in a plant to this same neutral aim point is a tremendous step forward in getting disparate printers to match. Achieving this G7 level will naturally help all the colors to be consistent.
DMM’s ability to provide a measurable, predictable, and uniform color management process is extremely important to ensure consistent output to its clients. DMM, Inc. specializes in business-critical document output both for transactional print and direct mail execution. Already an efficient digital print production provider, DMM, Inc. participates in the Idealliance G7 Master Program, to achieve further productivity gains to better serve its customers’ objectives for brand color quality and control.
“Quality and consistency are important to our customers,” says John V. Cloutier, CEO and President of DMM, Inc. “Our commitment to the G7 method is just one example of how we’re maximizing our performance to the benefit of our customers. This allows us to provide clients with the highest quality in color printing available in the market. Additionally, achieving color consistency when printing on multiple platforms is a critical component to brand management,” shared Cloutier.
“We applaud DMM, Inc. for utilizing the G7 Master Program to assure consistency and quality in their proofing, brand color management and print processes,” commented Steve Bonoff of Idealliance. “G7 Master Qualification demonstrates a level of control and expertise that places DMM, Inc. at the top of their field. We applaud their leadership, commitment and support of the G7 Master Qualification Program.”
