Color Expertise


Our color-management program provides consistent color across all label types and substrates, so all your labels look the same on store shelves.

Fort Dearborn’s company-wide total color-management system ensures color accuracy and consistency from design to print.

The system documents, controls, and improves all materials and processes that affect the accuracy and consistency of color reproduction, thereby providing continuous color quality.

We have assembled a team of color experts, each of whom is a specialist in the key stages of the color-reproduction process, to frequently monitor and update our program.

The associates at
Fort Dearborn are among the most experienced in the nation.

Associates receive extensive training in color management, color-control strategies, spectrophotometry, and color communication.

Their technical knowledge and experience, coupled with our state-of-the-art color-measurement equipment on every press, permit us to produce labels and packaging that accurately match our customers’ standards.

G7 Color Calibration System

G7 is an internationally recognized color calibration methodology. Master printers are highly trained to reproduce exacting color using this common color calibration system and then evaluated to receive this exclusive certification. G7 uses gray balance to achieve visual similarity across all print processes and substrates.

For brands, it means that you will receive consistent color from proof to press and from run-to-run.
