Q: Why do printers pursue a G7® Master Printer Qualification?

A: One of the challenges for printers today is the consistency between print devices, offset vs. digital and inkjet. To help manage the consistency of long-run (offset), short-run (digital) and large format ink jet technology, the G7® process is designed to minimize that variance.

Q: How does a printer become qualified?

A: Achieving the G7® Master Printer Qualification means that four Deluxe facilities have successfully completed rigorous training, testing and auditing, and we are committed to annual requalification to assure strict adherence to the process and to maintain our G7® Master Printer status.
