Great Lakes Label, a label converter in Comstock Park, MI, USA, has been awarded full certification by Graphic Measurers International (GMI), a leader in print quality management and brand integrity. Certification was awarded following an intensive on-site audit involving independent testing and inspections of company wide processes and capabilities from order entry to shipping.
The GMI audit included an in depth focus on graphics and color management to verify that Great Lakes Label utilizes scientific measurement and the latest technology in its print and color management processes, in order to uphold their customer’s brand integrity through consistency on finished product from run to run.
Other areas evaluated included press quality; (registration, trapping, dieline accuracy, finishing) and quality assurance; (process implementation, audits, traceability, barcode readability, non-compliance protocol).
According to GMI, its primary focus is to “certify, monitor and measure the performance of packaging suppliers, providing brand owners with control over quality variables through scientific quality measurement processes.” The GMI program focuses on global compliance, upholding the belief that regardless of where packaging is printed, quality does not need to compromised.
In addition to the GMI certification, Great Lakes Label has received a Superior Rating from AIB International for several years in a row and is a ISO 9001:2008 compliant facility.
