Outlook Group Re-Certified as G7 Master Printer
NEENAH, WI—May 28, 2013—IDEAlliance has re-certified Outlook Group Packaging & Printing Solutions as a G7 Master Printer. This certification includes Outlook Group's flexographic and lithographic printing presses, but it is the first time the company has obtained such a status on its flexographic presses. G7 Master status is granted to physical facilities qualified to use the G7 Proof-to-Print Process that use the most modern technology, techniques and press controls to produce a close visual match from proof to print. Outlook Group Packaging & Printing Solutions has been G7 Master Printer Certified since May of 2010 and re-certifies annually to ensure that its color match processes meet the stringent demands of the packaging industry.
Outlook Group Packaging & Printing Solutions prides itself on its color management systems. Each step of the color reproduction process is measured, calibrated and monitored to reproduce consistent color from art and proofing to its in-house plate making and ink formulation, all the way to its profiled presses. Outlook Group Packaging & Printing Solutions can calibrate colors to a standard and can reproduce that standard on any of its presses or proofs as recognized by the G7 Certification. This gives Outlook Group Packaging & Printing Solutions the ability to match colors across substrates—from folding cartons to flexible packaging and labels and includes products produced by both flexographic and lithographic offset technologies.
"We believe that the color matching and press techniques used to obtain G7 Master Printer Certification are critical for the success of our customers,"stated John Cappy, CEO. He noted that many customers take advantage of the company's synergies, which come from its vertically integrated packaging facilities. The ability to match colors across a variety of packaging types means that Outlook Group Packaging & Printing Solutions can provide a high quality complete packaging solution. Cappy continued, "We are proud and excited that our flexographic presses were included in this year's certification as it builds on our color matching capabilities."
