Great Northern StrataGraph Earns G7 Targeted Qualification Appleton, Wisconsin based Great Northern StrataGraph has announced its requalification as a G7 Master Facility, along with a G7 Targeted designation for its off-set print press. This qualification verifies that Great Northern’s off-set press meets G7 Targeted color specifications for grayscale colors, as well as primary and secondary colors (CMYK and RGB). Great Northern’s Twin Cities location is also a G7 Master Facility. “A brand’s color is one of its most important and recog- nizable attributes,” said Bruce Kehler, VP Sales Develop- ment at Great Northern StrataGraph. “When color is print- ed consistently on consumer packaging, it reinforces the brand’s visual identity and can affect consumer perception and purchasing behavior within seconds. The G7 Target- ed qualification provides assurance to our customers that their packaging will have a high-quality, consistent print color for each project across all G7 certified devices.”
