GMI Certification

The GMI certification helps product owners identify label and package printing companies that adhere to high standards for color reproduction. As a GMI certified printer, Packaging By Design, continually measures color samples from its presses against the tolerances of a finely calibrated spectrodensitometer and provides random samples throughout press runs to verify that vendor requirements are met.

GMI helps control the variables and ensure brand integrity through printer certification, production run sample measurement and in-store packaging assessments. Packaging By Design, is a GMI-Prime (Graphic Measures International) certified print facility for Walgreens, Target, Lowe’s,…

  • What is GMI? GMI stands for Global Measures International. GMI is a global leader in packaging quality services, they certify, monitor and measure the performance of the print job.  
  • Consistency is key, they say. That saying applies to everything under the sun, from learning the piano through consistent practice to learning how to ride a bike and even mastering the strategic game of chess. And in flexographic print, consistency is entirely vital. So, that’s where GMI certification comes into play.

And GMI certification is one of the ways the printing industry standardizes and qualifies the various printing companies. Quality control in printing is a crucial element, as many print jobs are so large in volume that a single error or misprint can cost companies significant money.  

With more and more vendors expected to print packaging and manufacture the product, GMI certifications are gaining popularity. The GMI certification, a derivative from the ISO standards related to the printing industry, brings with them a sense of authority and trust that business partners, and consumers alike, can trust.
