Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2009
Bert-Co, a key manufacturer of folding cartons, point-of-purchase materials and specialty packaging, announces they are now a G7 Master Printer. With the new color matching "proof-to-print" process through IDEAlliance's G7 Master program, Bert-Co can provide a closer visual match between proofs and the final printed product, and between printed output from press to press. This is a capability few sheet-fed printers have.
"Chasing the proof on press has always been a problem. The disconnect between those producing proofs and those printing the final output has long been troublesome, not to mention time consuming and expensive. G7 was developed to bridge the final gap between prepress and printers so that the visual appearance of the proof can easily and reliably be reproduced on press," states a representative at IDEAlliance.
Printing to the numbers with G7 means printers can use different equipment, even in different locations, to print materials that look quite similar to the human eye. Reports indicate jobs split across an old piece of equipment and a new one produce pages that look so much alike that no one can tell which sheet came from which press.
Since 2004, G7 has been a trademark of IDEAlliance (International Digital Enterprise Alliance). IDEAlliance is a not-for-profit membership organization that has been a leader in information technology and publishing since 1966. IDEAlliance advances core technology to develop standards and best practices to enhance efficiency and speed information across the end-to-end digital media supply chain - creation, production, management, and delivery of knowledge-based multimedia content - digitally and in print.
