G7 Compliant

G7 Compliant

GRACoL 7 is a specified, measured approach to color management that provides the most consistent match between a press sheet and a proof. Being G7 compliant enables us to consistently produce quality printing at the highest standards while keeping costs low by reducing waste and makeready times.

G7™ is a specification that defines the factors that can be used to provide consistent gray scale reproduction across multiple devices, processes and media. The main innovation of G7 is the direct measurement of a combined CMY neutral gray scale, instead of separate CMY dot gain (TVI) scales. This allows the well-proven photographic principles of gray balance and exposure control to be applied to CMYK printing, ensuring a close visual match between printed images no matter where or how they are produced. By directly controlling the density, contrast and balance of a neutral gray scale, G7 brings the goal of ‘printing to the numbers’ one step closer to reality.
