Hammer Packaging awarded G7® Master Qualification
Today we announced that Hammer has achieved G7® Master Facility Colorspace Qualification of our integrated color management system for producing digital durable labels at our plant in Rochester, NY.

G7 Master Colorspace Qualified Facility
G7 Colorspace is the third level of G7 compliance and the most stringent. This level demonstrates that we are maintaining extremely tight tolerances throughout the whole color space. It assures that the printing system can consistently reproduce the entire color space and not just the primaries and secondaries (CMY and RGB). G7 Colorspace can also be relative to either the absolute white point or the substrate-relative aim values. G7 Colorspace level is also further divided into two separate purposes, Printing or Proofing.
Idealliance® is dedicated to guiding media production best practices, specifications, and standards, worldwide.
This is the 10th year in a row that Hammer Packaging has met these standards and we couldn't be more excited and proud of our quality of work and effiency of our staff and printing processes.
