Elif Achieved Recertification G7® Master Qualification Colorspace with “Absolute”

Istanbul, Turkey, Feb 2022 - Elif has the renewal of our G7® Master Qualification Colorspace certificate for 2022 with the highest score “Absolute” this year. Elif is the first flexo printer company within Turkey to not only achieve this certification but to renew it.

G7 is Idealliance’s global industry-leading set of specifications for achieving visual similarity across all print processes. Elif demonstrates its facility’s leading capabilities in color management, device alignment, and standardization to serve the global print and packaging supply chains.

G7® Master Qualification Colorspace Certificate as the first flexo printer within Turkey in October 2020.  Our commitment to the G7 methodology is just one example of how we’re maximizing our performance for the benefit of our customers.

Özcan Korkmaz, Design Center Manager, Elif, led the recertification process, which ended up achieving the highest score. He commented, “We are proud to have our facility being in the ranks of the most globally recognized and most valued process control “Qualification” in the world, G7® Master Qualified facilities with the “Absolute” degree. 

We have our standards measurable and predictable and we have a constant color management process. This achievement is proof that our G7 methodology is working.”

Alan Lawlor, Managing Director, Idealience Europe, added ¨Idealliance-Europe congratulate Elif Global on their recertification as a G7® Master Colorspace Facility. We applaud the commitment of Derek Peacock and his team to process control excellence and their dedication to producing the highest quality and consistency for their clients.
