Graphic Measures International (GMI) certification is a process that holds packaging suppliers accountable to established brand owner standards. Companies like Home Depot, Target, CVS, and Walgreens only work with GMI-certified printers to ensure that their packaging looks consistent all over the world. Even if your project does not require a GMI printer, working with a certified printer ensures excellence every time.
The GMI process was developed from the standards included in ISO 12647, which dictates the best standards for optimizing efficiency and other processes in printing businesses. As a derivative of the ISO standards, the GMI certification comes with respect and authority as ISO’s industry-accepted standards.
Our Overnight Labels and Label Graphics were awarded GMI certifications following intensive on-site audits, which focused on graphics and color management. Other areas evaluated included press quality (registration, trapping, die-line accuracy, finishing) and quality assurance (process implementation, audits, traceability, barcode readability, and non-compliance protocol).
Over the last several years, we’ve achieved Platinum GMI status, which is the highest level possible and accounts for the top 2% of GMI label printers. For certified packaging suppliers to achieve platinum status, they must meet the following high standards:
