Printing United Alliance Announces New G7+

G7+ is a calibration specification that replaces legacy G7 with new logic and algorithms.

Printing United Alliance introduces advanced calibration and verification algorithms for new technologies, with the same familiar features and overall appearance as legacy G7. G7+ is designed to work equally well with all printing technologies and offers increased value and effectiveness for a wider range of markets and applications, while preserving the value of existing G7 workflows, according to Printing United Alliance. G7+ maintains the features, benefits, and general appearance of G7, but with more accurate gray balance, improved tonality, and better performance in unusual printing conditions.

“G7 has raised the bar in the world of print and color output as colorimetry and visual output became the norm rather than simply relying on density for matching color,” says Jordan Gorski, executive director, Idealliance. “G7+ now integrates all modern print technology to be a standard that is applicable to all print, on all media, paper, board, film, signage, or textile, for any output condition that will truly provide print buyers and printers the ability to match color on packaging, publications, signage and wide format graphics, while maintaining alignment to the standards in place among existing workflows.”

According to Printing United Alliance, G7+ is improved and optimized to:

• Improve gray balance and tonality across a wider range of print systems, including textile, web-offset, newsprint, and inkjet, while maintaining GraCol visual similarity.

• Achieve smooth, highly saturated color in high-density inkjet printing.

• Use Substrate Colorimetric Color Aims (SCCA) for more precise neutral gray on color substrates.

• Attain accurate ICC profiles and lifelike images on calibrated systems without color management.

G7+ training and certification will be available in-person during the Color Conference portion of the Printing United Technical Event Series March 12-14 in Dallas and on the Alliance’s iLearning+ platform.
