What is G-7? (tech stuff)
G-7 is both a definition of grayscale appearance, and a calibration method for adjusting any CMYK imaging device to simulate the G7 grayscale definition. G7 yields a visual match between different imaging systems. A key benefit of G7 is that it is device independent. G-7 yields a visual match between different imaging systems regardless of substrates, colorants or screening technologies.
G-7 qualification has become a requirement for many print buyers who purchase in different geographic areas or across different print types, but still demand visual similarity in the appearance of all of the print products. For example, a buyer may want to purchase marketing collateral, packaging, and signage from different printers, but with the same brand imagery. If all the printed products have the same gray balance and neutral tonality defined by G-7, they will look remarkably the same to the human eye.
What Is The Benefit To Our Customers?
G7 process is based on visual appearance; the same as what many customers do when they actually are at the site of the press for the approval process.
- Synchronizes color balance among multiple printing presses and different imaging processes.
- Could reduce your consumable waste and make-ready time while providing a superior color product.
- Tighter proof to press calibration improves communication between designer and printer.
- Allows us to adjust the color at press for different substrates.
- Constantly monitors and reports proofing device and pressroom conditions to assure results on press.
