TOPP Digital Label Solutions Earns G7 Certification to Get Even More from its Xeikon Press

Xeikon NV, an innovator in digital color printing technology, announced today that TOPP Digital Label Solutions, a Xeikon 3050 customer in Miami, FL, has received G7 certification from the IDEAlliance. G7 certification means that TOPP's print personnel are experts, trained in the field of color management, process and quality control for proofing and printing equipment.

TOPP is more than a name to the Florida-based printing company, it's an aspiration. The company prides itself on providing a combination of value, technology and education to its customers, acting like a business partner with an expertise in labels rather than a vendor. Xeikon has been a valuable partner for TOPP as the company serves a wide variety of customer needs. Its Xeikon 3050 press enables the company to provide variable QR codes, security enhancements, eco-friendly toner, and the ability to incorporate RFID features.

"Yes, we produce great labels, but we're just as focused on providing business value. And Value means quality, consistency and branding. G7 certification allows us to be at the top of our game," said Sean Cummins, president of TOPP Digital Label Solutions.

"We're one of the very few digital shops that has gone out and pursued G7 certification. G7 means you're the best in color, and that color and consistency will be outstanding with any printer that has that certification. Brands and corporate identity have very specific requirements and the fact that we can produce what they want all the time, every time, means a lot to them. The long and short of it is that the combination of G7 certification coupled with Xeikon's reputation will open many more doors for us," said TOPP's vice president of operations, Bob Reilly.

The Xeikon 3050, boasting a unique combination of 1200 × 3600 DPI addressability and 4-bit variable dot density, offers rich color depth and subtle contrasts. Sharp and crisp details enable adding micro text which can help prevent counterfeiting. Its full rotary technology combined with variable repeat length allows printing at maximum speed, regardless of the size of the labels and/or number of colors.

According to Michael V. Ring, president of Xeikon America, Inc., "TOPP Digital Label Solutions is a prime example of a company that puts its customers first. They truly understand the needs of their customers and invest in technology and solutions accordingly to provide top notch products. Their G7 certification on the Xeikon 3050 press is another step in their customer-centric approach. We wish them continued success."
