Sawgrass Earns G7 Master Qualification for an Impressive Third Consecutive Year


PRC_VJ628-G7_Print-(1).jpgCHARLESTON, SC – Sept. 25, 2018 – Sawgrass announced today that it has earned G7 Master Qualification for the third consecutive year by demonstrating unparalleled capabilities in color matching and print quality consistency as recognized by Idealliance. Idealliance is a not-for-profit industry group dedicated to guiding print production best practices, specifications and standards, worldwide.

“Few manufacturers of sublimation ink have earned G7’s Master Qualification,” said Darcy Mauro, President of Sawgrass. “That Sawgrass has earned this prestigious industry certification for three consecutive years is a real testament to the quality and consistency of our products. When you are looking for the best quality sublimation prints, you look for Sawgrass products.”
The G7 Master Qualification is a global standardized methodology for matching color and producing consistent print quality on various media. Sawgrass is one of only a few dye sublimation companies in the world to have achieved G7 Master Qualification and has now been recertified for 2019.
Sawgrass demonstrated that its print production processes and capabilities have met the highest level of global industry standards and specifications to obtain the G7 Master Qualification, with results that were nearly identical to the previous two years. The level of consistent high quality demonstrated by Sawgrass was noted by Idealliance as very rare and evidence of Sawgrass’ commitment to quality.
G7 standards are currently applied through the Virtuoso 25” 8-Color HD Product Decorating System, featuring the VJ 628 printer and family of SubliJet-HD ink sets. These sets include Dual CMYK, Pro Photo, ProPhoto XF and FLEX formulations. Sawgrass’ new Ultra-HD inks for the VJ 628 - the first set of which will debut at the SGIA Expo in Las Vegas Oct. 18 – 20 - also meet G7 standards and have been named an SGIA Product of the Year for Digital Textile Inks.
At a time when customer expectations for print and color quality have never been higher, Sawgrass’ G7 Master Qualification enables you to give customers a new level of assurance and predictability for colors and image quality. When using our G7-compliant inks and profiles, customer colors will not only be vivid, but consistent from proof to print and across substrates.
