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.”

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
