Idealliance Digest—May 2021
What’s happening at Idealliance
Helping brands ensure a consistent brand experience and maintain brand integrity—plus a 20% off sale on BrandQ manager, two upcoming Gamut Livestreams, first in-person G7 Expert training announced, and more.
We’ve all seen the print wires: “Digital packaging is here”, “Specialty finishing for packaging with digital…”, “What’s the Deal with Digital?” – but what does this mean for print buyers & brands? What does it mean for brand integrity? Who sets the bar for consistent print quality across a global brand’s printed products and packaging?
Idealliance® Releases Expanded Schedule of Summer and Fall G7® Expert Training Sessions for 2021, Including the First In-Person Training at PRINTING United User Experience
Registration now open, with nine new opportunities for G7 Training and Certification across multiple time zones and in multiple languages.
During the MyPrivateBrand online Design Summit May 12-13, co-presenters Mike Grady and Christine Gallagher will share insights that help private brands implement color and print quality management best practices to ensure a consistent brand experience.
