GRACoL/G7

G7 stands for quality under control, using a color spectrophotometer. In this case, a SWP pressman does not “eyeball” the color. Instead the pressman monitors the spectrometer at 50-sheet intervals.

SWP has the honor of holding a GRACoL Master Qualification. G7 calibrates proof-to-press and press-to-press across any printing method.

G7 benefits include:

  • Faster make-ready
  • Greater consistency
