PrimeNet is now G7 certified on our Xerox iGens!
PrimeNet was certified by IDEAlliance as meeting the G7 Master Qualification! As such, the PrimeNet proofing system and presses are calibrated to match the work of any other G7 Master Qualified printer.
Customers will see absolute consistency between printing work done by PrimeNet and work done by other printing vendors who are G7 Certified. Companies often use multiple print vendors for packaging, direct mail, signage and other collateral. They want assurances that printed material will visually adhere to the same standards and look across printers. Companies know that consistent colors and quality uphold a strong visual brand image.
Technically, the certification means that PrimeNet adheres to the G7 neutral print density curve (NPDC), gray balance definitions and calibration methodology for any imaging technology, regardless of substrate, colorants or screening technologies!

IDEAlliance® is a non-profit industry association guiding and publishing print media methodologies, specifications, and standards. Its primary role is facilitating a level playing field across ALL stakeholders to develop work that advances best practices.
G7® 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 using simple 1-dimensional curves, and enables shared appearance between different printing devices or specifications when additional color management is not available.
