SWOP was initiated in 1975 as a response to the printing industry’s need for uniform specifications and tolerances to ensure consistency and quality of material in publications. In 2005, SWOP merged with IDEAlliance. The GRACol Committee was formed in 1996 to develop maintain and publish printing guidelines that have since become de facto standards in many pressrooms.
