bluemedia™ was one of the first large format printers in the country and the first in Arizona to implement the G7 methodology. At bluemedia, we’re committed to our customers by accurately printing colors year after year. In our efforts to meet our client’s needs we have been able to save you time and money by:
- Making sure that your color proof represents your file and the press sheets will match your proof
- Eliminating costly travel for on-site press checks
- Faster make ready time results in less paper waste and overall cost savings
- Insuring color consistency is maintained throughout the press run, every time
- Insuring uniform color for projects printed in various geographical areas
G7® is a Method defined by the Print Properties and Colorimetrics Working Group of IDEAlliance. Initially G7 was developed by the IDEAlliance GRACoL Working Group. But as adoption of G7 grew, it became clear that the application of this method that enables printers to reproduce a similar visual appearance across printing types and substrates should be addressed by a group with reach beyond the focus on sheetfed offset printing that is unique to the GRACoL working group. Today, through the PPC Working Group, experts from across the spectrum of printing disciplines contribute to this important IDEAlliance Methodology.
G7® specifies the components of an image that define a similar “visual appearance” to the human eye.
To do this, the G7 Method:
- Defines a colorimetric definition for gray balance.
- Specifies gray balance in the mid-tones, image weight and image contrast from the highlights to the shadows which are the factors that determine likeness of the visual appearance of an image.
All of our proofs and printing follow the strict G7 International Standards for consistent color and quality. Not only are our proofing machines calibrated to all of our presses and other devices, but what we proof or print here will be an exact color match to proofs or printing done anywhere in the world by other G7 Certified printers. The G7 standard is fast becoming very important to customers that are printing projects in different parts of the world to maintain uniform color.
