Idealliance will be conducting a three-day training in Kochi on 11-13 October, featuring in-depth demonstrations, live G7 press and proof application, hands-on practical experience and leading global print standards implementation. The program will be conducted in partnership with SquareDOTS, Idealliance, Kerala Master Printers Association (KMPA) and Anaswara Offset Pvt. Ltd.

G7 is Idealliance’s global industry-leading set of specifications for achieving visual similarity across all print processes currently being revised into ISO 12647-2. G7 expert trainer Jeff Collins will lead instruction and demonstration covering G7 methodology, implementation and strategies developed to maintain the highest possible process control and color management consistency and fidelity for alignment across any print technology. Open to the public, attendees will gain extensive knowledge of G7 methodology through hands-on practical experience, discussion and extensive review to gain certification as G7 Experts or G7 Professionals.

Training will focus on G7 theory and implementation; extensive, live, practical on-press demonstrations, including G7 calibration, profiling and verification; process control and workflow management through G7.

The training program will be beneficial for color management and process control experts, content and media creators, press operators and pressroom supervisors, prepress supervisors and technicians, quality assurance managers, printing hardware and software technology providers, brands and brand owners, color quality managers and print and packaging consultants.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
