G7 is Idealliance’s industry-leading set of best practices for achieving gray balance and is the driving force for achieving visual similarity across all print processes. The application of this method enables printers to reproduce a similar visual appearance across all printing types and substrates. It is for these reasons that Nosco applies G7 methods and standards to serve major brands like Alcon, Blistex, Hershey and more.

“Our customers ask us to be leaders in print quality and consistency,” said Brandon Kapellusch, Prepress Solutions Architect at Nosco. "The G7 method is a way to achieve that internally at our six sites and globally with other G7 qualified printers."

"We applaud Nosco for utilizing the G7 Master Program to assure consistency and quality in their proofing, brand color management and print processes," commented Steve Bonoff for Idealliance.
