Diamond Packaging, a leading folding carton supplier to Fortune 500 companies worldwide, has achieved G7 Master Qualification, awarded by Idealliance, a not-forprofit industry group dedicated to guiding print production best practices, specifications and standards worldwide. Diamond joins a select group of print service providers who have successfully completed training, examination and qualification of their print production processes, validating their capabilities to the highest level of global industry standards and specifications.

G7 is Idealliance’s industry-leading set of best practices for achieving gray balance and is the driving force for achieving visual similarity across all print processes. The application of this method enables printers to reproduce a similar visual appearance across all printing types and substrates.

“Quality and repeatability are important to our customers,” says Jeff Dieter, production manager of Diamond Packaging. “Our commitment to the G7 method is just one example of how we’re maximizing our performance to the benefit of our customers. We look forward to the benefits that standardization brings to both our clients and our organization.” 

Already an efficient print provider through its use of state of-the-art Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 105, 8-color and XL 106, 10-color offset presses, Diamond Packaging looked to Certified G7 Expert Ronald Tomey and the Idealliance G7 Master Program to achieve further productivity gains to better serve its customers’ objectives for brand color quality and control.

“We applaud Diamond Packaging for utilizing the G7 Master Program to assure consistency and quality in their proofing, brand color management and print processes,” stated Steve Bonoff for Idealliance. “G7 Master Qualification demonstrates a level of control and expertise that places Diamond Packaging at the top of their field. We applaud their leadership, commitment, and support of the G7 Master Qualification Program.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
