Curtis 1000 Qualifies as G7® Master Printer



Curtis 1000, a leading supplier of managed communication and print services with facilities in Hugo, Minnesota, and Duluth, Georgia, has been awarded G7® Master Printer Qualification for its digital offset equipment at both locations from IDEAlliance®, an established industry organization that develops and validates best practices and technical specification in publishing, digital media and information technology.

“The G7® Master Qualification is important because it signifies we can achieve the required standards for predictable, repeatable and consistent quality color output, and produce a visual similarity across products and substrates,” says Allan Becker, Curtis 1000’s National Production Manager. “The G7® methodology specifies and measures performance in the areas of color-matching, uniformity and repeatability that digital print systems struggle with. This is an annual qualification, not a one-time achievement, which means we must continue to maintain strict press maintenance and color metric standards of performance.”

An organization achieves the level of G7® Master Qualification by demonstrating through production of print and/or proofing, the knowledge and skill required and the fundamental practices essential to meeting the G7® methodology in a graphic communications production environment.

IDEAlliance® is a nonprofit industry association guiding and publishing print media methodologies, specifications and standards. According to its website at, the association’s primary role is facilitating a level playing field across all stakeholders to develop work that advances best practices.

Curtis 1000, a managed print and direct marketing services provider with a nationwide team of local business solutions consultants, is part of Taylor Corporation, a leading business marketing communications company headquartered in Minnesota.
