Overnight Labels’ original certification was awarded in 2016 following an intensive on-site audit involving independent testing and inspections of company-wide processes and capabilities. It included an in-depth focus on graphics and color management to verify that Overnight Labels utilizes the latest technology in their print and color management processes. Other areas evaluated included press quality (registration, trapping, die-line accuracy, finishing) and quality assurance (process implementation, audits, traceability, barcode readability, non-compliance protocol).
“Overnight Labels is proud of our new GMI Platinum level status because it recognizes the quality we strive to achieve every day, said Don Earl, president of Overnight Labels. “Whether a company requires a GMI printer or not, color consistency has always been an area of expertise for us. All of our customers are extra secure in knowing that we print to specific numbers and standards, not a subjective set of rules,” he added.
