ThinkDon - From Huston Patterson Printers

ThinkDon is our periodic Question and answer forum with expertise in the world of large format package printing by our VP of Manufacturing, Don Ellis.

I know Huston Patterson is G7 Master Printer certified, but what does it mean?

To a print buyer it means:
  1. Huston Patterson has submitted yearly documentation, with supporting proof and print samples, to Ideal Alliance for certification.
  2. The proof received from Huston Patterson will be indicative of the file and each proof is checked with a spectrophotometer to very the color accuracy of the proof.
  3. The printed piece will match the color proof (within the mechanical capabilities of the press).
  4. Each step is repeatable and measurable.
  5. Proofs and printed pieces from various sources that are also G7 Master Printer certified will match, within the limitations of the particular printing method being used.

In our next "Think Don" article, we will present an overview of the process required to become G8 Master Printer certified.
