We’re always working to continuously improve our processes at IWCO Direct. This commitment led us to pursue an important distinction in our industry – G7® Master Qualification from IDEAlliance®. We are proud to announce this level of qualification for the web and sheetfed printing operations at our headquarters in Chanhassen and at our facility in Hamburg, Pennsylvania.
Along with our G7 Master Qualification at the facility level, we are equally proud to highlight the efforts of two employees. Tom Kern, print manager, and Doug Brustad, envelope manager, recently became G7 Experts by completing intensive, hands-on training in color and print analysis. They will work to educate staff, calibrate proofing systems and/or presses and review and approve equipment calibration data to further enhance our color management process. Additional members of our press operations lead team will undertake the same training in the near future.
IDEAlliance is an industry-leading membership organization within the graphic communications industry that identifies best practices for efficient end-to-end digital media workflows both digitally and in print. Its G7 program is an internationally accepted method used to calibrate a wide range of proofing and/or printing systems in order to enhance color fidelity on a press.
Pursuing the highest standards will always remain a top priority for everyone at IWCO Direct. This accomplishment speaks not only to the hard work of all our employees, but the dedication to keeping excellence at the forefront of our business. With the G7 methodology and best practices, we can achieve a faster, more consistent color match between the proof and printed sheet on web, sheetfed, digital and flexo presses. This will increase our efficiency, reduce make-ready time and waste, and provide overall higher quality color reproduction for our customers.
