Diamond Packaging Achieves Idealliance G7 Master Qualification

Dec 29, 2016 - Recent News

Rochester, NY – Diamond Packaging, a leading folding carton supplier to Fortune 500 companies worldwide, has achieved G7® Master Qualification, awarded by Idealliance®, a not-for-profit industry group dedicated to guiding print production best practices, specifications, and standards, worldwide. Diamond joins a select group of print service providers who have successfully completed training, examination, and qualification of their print production processes, validating their capabilities to the highest level of global industry standards and specifications.

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.

“Quality and repeatability are important to our customers,” says Jeff Dieter, Production Manager of Diamond Packaging. “Our commitment to the G7 method is just one example of how we’re maximizing our performance, to the benefit of our customers. We look forward to the benefits that standardization brings to both our clients and our organization.”

Already an efficient print provider through its use of state-of-the-art Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 105 eight-color and XL 106 10-color offset presses, Diamond looked to Certified G7 Expert, Ronald Tomey and the Idealliance G7 Master Program, to achieve further productivity gains to better serve its customers' objectives for brand color quality and control.

“We applaud Diamond Packaging for utilizing the G7 Master Program to assure consistency and quality in their proofing, brand color management, and print processes,” commented Steve Bonoff for Idealliance. “G7 Master Qualification demonstrates a level of control and expertise that places Diamond at the top of their field. We applaud their leadership, commitment, and support of the G7 Master Qualification Program.”
