Creel Achieves Milestone with Third G7 Master Printer Designation
LAS VEGAS—August 21, 2012—Creel Printing has extended its G7 designation, achieving Master Printer certification across prepress, sheetfed, and heatset web operations. It is among an elite group of G7-certified printers in the southwest, and is the only company in Nevada holding all three merits. Creel has held the prestigious G7 distinction since 2009.
G7 Master qualification signifies that a company uses the most modern technology, standards, and quality controls to produce a near-exact match from proof to print, time after time, regardless of substrate. With Creel’s combined prepress/press certifications, customers are ensured the best possible accuracy from their final files, enabling easy one-stop sourcing.
Since it reduces waste and makeready times, G7 is also a more cost-effective and sustainable approach to printing—an added benefit.
“Perfect color matching makes a critical difference in companies’ advertising and marketing results, yet few print providers can achieve it,” noted Chris Evans, vp, premedia & customer solutions. “Creel’s closed-loop, proof-to-press G7-certified process guarantees exact reproduction. Our customers can be confident they are getting the very best possible color match and the meticulous quality Creel is known for.”
With the quality and control benefits, more and more businesses are seeking out G7-certified suppliers. “Creel Printing will continue to drive the solutions that bring the most value to our clients’ businesses,” Evans adds.
The third G7 Master Printer achievement is just one more accomplishment for the perpetually innovating Creel. The company has added a number of new customers and is rapidly growing its Web, mobile, digital magazine and advertising, and full-color digital printing capabilities.
