Austin, Texas (September 28, 2009) – Always striving to raise the bar and improve print processes and quality, QuantumDigital, Inc., the complete online service provider for direct mail, on-demand digital printing and eMarketing solutions, today announced that it has received G7® Master Printer status from the International Digital Enterprise Alliance (IDEAlliance). QuantumDigital is one of eight G7 Master Printers in Texas and one of the first and few pure digital printers worldwide to achieve this distinction.
The IDEAlliance G7 Master Program is a qualification program that identifies those creative, pre-media and printing companies who have been trained to proof or print to G7 Neutral Print Density Curves and can meet print buyer requirements to produce proofs or printed output, conforming to the metrics that reliably render brand images across print locations and different printing type. The qualification mark means that the printer uses the modern technology based on colorimetric principles and employs G7 process controls. G7 Masters bear the IDEAlliance seal of approval. Attaining the G7 Master status is a competitive goal for those providing creative, pre-media and printing services, worldwide.
"G7 evolves printing from an art to a science" said Freddie Baird, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of QuantumDigital. "Corporate print buyers and ad agencies want assurance that the final color quality of the printed output holds true to their creative vision. G7 eliminates the subjectivity and uncertainty in the evaluation of color. It means that our customers get the very best color management available today, resulting in a product that is run with tighter process controls and standards than those using a pressman's visual check for color verification."
G7 solves a common problem for print buyers: getting consistent color quality regardless of the technology, printer or location. As a G7 Master, QuantumDigital can cost-effectively produce color proofs that can easily be matched, making files portable and interchangeable. It also is a symbol to corporate print buyers and production managers that you can reliably work with G7 certified printers and achieve more consistent and predictable color across all your print projects.
“Being a G7 Master Printer means that QuantumDigital has invested time and money to calibrate our equipment and train our team to output a top-notch quality printed product,” said Steve Damman, President and Chief Executive Officer of QuantumDigital. “With this designation, we can ensure our clients and agency partners uphold brand integrity across all their printed collateral. The G7 qualification mark enables us to further differentiate ourselves and provide our clients with solutions based on leading edge variable data printing methodology.”
The G7 process also helps QuantumDigital to produce consistent color with less preparation and a reduction in paper and ink usage, resulting in less waste. This, in combination with QuantumDigital’s numerous other environmental sustainability efforts, furthers the company’s commitment to doing their part to reduce their environmental footprint and conserve vital natural resources.
