What is G7? (tech stuff)

G7 is both a definition of grayscale appearance and a calibration method for adjusting any CMYK imaging device to simulate the G7 grayscale definition. The G7 process yields a visual match between different imaging systems. A key benefit of G7 is that it is device-independent. G7 generates a visual match between different imaging systems regardless of substrates, colorants, or screening technologies.

G7 qualification has become a requirement for many print buyers who purchase in different geographic areas or across different print types but still demand visual similarity in all print products’ appearance. For example, a buyer may want to purchase marketing collateral, packaging, and signage from different printers, but with the same brand imagery. If all the printed products have the same gray balance and neutral tonality defined by G7, they will look remarkably the same to the human eye.
