G7® is Idealliance’ global industry-leading set of specifications for achieving gray balance and is the driving force for achieving visual similarity across all print processes. The G7 methodology is designed to align all print technologies for visual consistency, process and quality control, and color workflow management.
Idealliance G7®, also known as near-neutral, which is the most sought-after certification and most specified standard in the world, which is currently being revised into ISO 12647-2, works on any print technology regardless of ink or substrate, provides an extraordinary alignment across a facility and certainly across a global print supply chain. Utilizing G7 within a print production workflow improves output consistency across multiple print services, platforms, and distribution outlets, but also tremendously reduces waste and increases profitability.
