Hickory Printing Solutions Achieves G7 Master Qualified Printer Status At Both Locations

CONOVER, N.C., Jan. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hickory Printing Solutions, a Consolidated Graphics, Inc. company (NYSE:CGX) and full service print provider, announced today it has achieved G7 Master Qualified Printer status at both Hickory locations in Conover and Greensboro, NC, through IDEAlliance, the nonprofit industry organization that develops, educates, and validates best practices in publishing and information technology. Hickory Printing Solutions' G7 Master Qualified Printer designation highlights the company's commitment to quality, consistency and color management.

"Our focus is on providing a high level of quality and expanding our extensive production capabilities to constantly meet the evolving needs of our customers. Acquiring G7 Master Qualified Printer status at both of our facilities reinforces this promise," said Stephen Patton, President of Hickory Printing Solutions. "Having certification at both locations confirms that we are taking the steps necessary to verify color consistency across all presses, giving us a flexibility that makes our clients' lives easier."

Hickory Printing Solutions has been trained to utilize the new G7 methodology and can produce a press sheet to GRACoL (General Requirements for Applications in Commercial Offset Lithography) targets within acceptable tolerances.  By achieving the status of a G7 Master Qualified Printer, Hickory Printing Solutions can reliably produce high quality printing with a close visual appearance from proof to press, as well as from press to press. As a G7 Master Qualified Printer, the company will go through a yearly requalification audit to ensure it maintains IDEAlliance calibration and process standards.

Including Hickory Printing Solutions, 59 Consolidated Graphics companies hold the G7 Master Qualified Printer Status, giving the company the distinction of having the most G7 qualified printers in the world.
