G7 is a method for calibrating devices based on achieving a defined Gray Scale. Sonderen Packaging has been qualified as a G7 Master printer by Idea Alliance. What does this mean for you as a customer? Color consistency from production run to production run, and also a shared neutral appearance across multiple media applications.

Why would a print buyer be interested in G7? Typically a print‐buy is either distributed geographically or distributed across different print types. So, for example, a buyer may want to purchase marketing collateral, packaging and signage with the same brand imagery. Clearly the substrate, gamut and other print characteristics will vary for the different print products. But if all the print products have the same gray balance and neutral tonality defined by G7, they will look remarkably alike to the human eye. Because buyers believe the similarity of the visual appearance across print products is critical, they now make G7 a buying requirement.
