The good news is that this process has already started. IppStar held various seminars and courses including 5-day color management certificate courses at Don Bosco, Delhi and Anna University, Chennai in August 2007. Since IppStar became the Indian affiliate of Idealliance, it conducted Color Management Professional training in Delhi and Mumbai for 60 technicians in 2014. It organized the Brand Owner and converter meetings in Delhi and Mumbai with Steve Smiley in February 2016 since it is the brand owners who need to be sensitized to the desirability and the possibility of printing by numbers. To demonstrate the practical ease of the G7 method in achieving color standardization we again invited Steve Smiley. Smiley who is one of the best color trainers and practitioners in the world and has worked extensively with leading global brands came back for training and demonstration of the G7 standardization process in December 2015.
More companies are joining Idealliance India daily as it grows. The color management lab in Noida with its two inhouse engineers is getting ready to train them as G7 color management experts to help our members in their best practices and color standardization efforts. There is strong demand for the seats for the 4-day training in Mumbai from 20 to 23 September 2016 with 11 of the 25 training seats already booked. Join Idealliance India, register your designated technical personnel for training and globally recognized certification. After this course the Indian print industry will have its own local G7 Experts who can consult. Together as an industry we will walk the talk.
