G7 is Idealliance’s industry-leading set of best practices for achieving gray balance and is the driving force for achieving visual similarity across all print processes. The application of this method enables printers to reproduce a similar visual appearance across all printing types and substrates.
“Quality and repeatability are important to our customers,” says Jeff Dieter, production manager of Diamond Packaging. “Our commitment to the G7 method is just one example of how we’re maximizing our performance to the benefit of our customers. We look forward to the benefits that standardization brings to both our clients and our organization.”

Already an efficient print provider through its use of state-of-the-art Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 105, 8-color and XL 106, 10-color offset presses, Diamond Packaging looked to Certified G7 Expert Ronald Tomey and the Idealliance G7 Master Program to achieve further productivity gains to better serve its customers’ objectives for brand color quality and control.

“We applaud Diamond Packaging for utilizing the G7 Master Program to assure consistency and quality in their proofing, brand color management and print processes,” stated Steve Bonoff for Idealliance. “G7 Master Qualification demonstrates a level of control and expertise that places Diamond Packaging at the top of their field. We applaud their leadership, commitment, and support of the G7 Master Qualification Program.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
