Printing United Alliance introduces G7+

January 22, 2024  By PrintAction Staff

The Printing United Alliance releases G7+, a new and improved colour calibration specification that replaces legacy G7 with new logic and algorithms, but similar overall appearance.

After more than three years of R&D by Printing United Alliance, G7+ is designed to work equally well with all printing technologies and offers increased value and effectiveness for a wide range of markets and applications, while preserving the value of existing G7 workflows. G7+ maintains the features, benefits, and general appearance of G7, but with more accurate grey balance, improved tonality, and better performance in unusual printing conditions.

“Printing United Alliance is excited to announce G7+ to continue our mission in supporting leading printers and print buyers around the world,” says Jordan Gorski, executive director, Idealliance. “G7 has raised the bar in the world of print and colour output as colorimetry and visual output became the norm rather than simply relying on density for matching colour. G7+ now integrates all modern print technology to be a standard that is applicable to all print, on all media, paper, board, film, signage, or textile, for any output condition that will truly provide print buyers and printers the ability to match colour on packaging, publications, signage and wide format graphics, while maintaining alignment to the standards in place among existing workflows.”


Those interested in learning more about G7+ in person will have the opportunity during the Printing United Technical Event Series this March 12-14 in Dallas, Texas. During the event’s keynote address, “G7+, the World’s Best Calibration System, Made Better,” R&D team leader Don Hutcheson will highlight the changes in calibration and verification algorithms developed by the Alliance.

Current G7-certified experts and professionals can become the first group trained and certified to G7+ during a special a pre-conference session at Dallas event. Hutcheson will present the intensive the G7+ Expert certification training. Register for the session at
