Hatteras Achieves Highest G7 Master Facility Certification

September 15, 2020

Hatteras is proud to announce that we have once again achieved G7 'Colorspace' Master Qualification, meeting the most stringent set of requirements for achieving visual similarity across all print processes.

Each year, Hatteras participates in Idealliance’s G7 Master Qualification Program, which sets the print industry’s highest standards for maintaining specific color and quality targets in a graphic communications production environment.

Among Idealliance's three compliance levels that a print facility could achieve, Hatteras has reached the highest level – Colorspace – demonstrating that "the facility is maintaining extremely tight tolerances throughout the whole color space.” A combination of modern equipment, careful process control, and knowledgeable staff have allowed Hatteras to perform at this level.

"Our participation in the G7 program provides a great way for Hatteras to measure our performance against the highest industry standards, while providing world-class printing services to our customers."
