Source3Media Has Achieved G7 Master Facility Colorspace Qualification


G7 Master Facility Colorspace is the highest Idealliance distinction, demonstrating that our facility has proven quality leadership in print, premedia, and creative services.

This high level of distinction is the most stringent, and shows that Source3Media is maintaining extremely tight tolerances throughout the whole color space.  Source3Media can assure that our printing system can consistently reproduce the entire color space and not just the primaries and secondaries (CMY and RGB).


G7 is an industry-leading set of specifications for achieving gray balance.  It is the driving force for achieving visual similarity across all print processes.  Simply, it is a universal calibration methodology that brands, buyers and creatives seek out to ensure the integrity of their brands.
