The Garvey Group is First U.S. Install of Screen's Truepress Jet2500UV Ink-jet Printer

May 2009
NILES, IL—05/11/09—The Garvey Group, a network of advertising, marketing, print production, support, and fulfillment divisions located in the Midwest, has become the first printer in the United States to install Screen’s Truepress Jet2500UV grand format UV inkjet printer. The installation took place in January 2009 and since then the company has been consistently producing high quality tightly calibrated grand-format work on the new printer.

“The new Truepress Jet2500UV grand format inkjet printer gives us unique capabilities that we never had before,” says David Nolte, vice president of sales for The Garvey Group. “The Truepress can print up to 1500 dpi at very high speeds in full color plus opaque whites on substrates up to 1.9” thick. We also have our machine color-managed with our Certified G7 status which allows us to match printed pieces off our presses or expand the color gamut for products that are stand-alone. We can print roll-to-roll 91-inches wide x 160-inches or flat bed 91-inches wide x 52-inches long. In addition, this press features brand new UV ink technology offering a VOC-free output and flexibility and light safe not found in traditional UV ink jet. It is ideal for point-of-purchase, point-of-sale, floor graphics retail signs, banner, bus shelters, transit advertising, fabric, metal, wood, plastic, paper and board.”

In order to offer the highest quality on the new Truepress as well as its other offset presses, The Garvey Group recently received its G7 Master Printer status from the International Digital Enterprise Alliance (IDEAlliance), the global leader in developing, educating, and validating best practices in media, publishing, and information technology. The Garvey Group is one of just 370 companies worldwide to achieve this distinction.  HYPERLINK "http://www.gracol.org/about/g7.asp" G7 Master Status identifies printing companies, prepress service providers, and agencies that have been trained to use the G7 Proof-to-Print Process, a calibration method that allows printers to reliably achieve a close visual match from proof to press. Earning the qualification signifies that a company uses the most modern technology and techniques required to ensure color fidelity throughout the printing process.

Weeks of intensive review to earn G7 Master Status

“Our company underwent several weeks of intensive review by a G7 expert consultant, who measured and tested our company's presses and evaluated their proofing system against known G7 standards,” explains Nolte. “To maintain our G7 Master status, The Garvey Group will undergo a yearly re-qualification.”
