EFI partners with Ghent Workgroup for PDF/X-4 Print Certification

Electronics For Imaging, Inc. has launched a new service that makes it easy for print service providers to achieve Ghent PDF Output Suite 5.0 Conformance Certification for digital presses and printers using EFI™ Fiery® digital front end (DFE) print servers.

Available at http://fiery.efi.com/gwg, the new certification offering uses the PDF test suite from the Ghent Workgroup (GWG), an international organization of graphic arts users, associations and developers committed to building best practices for publishing and packaging workflows.

With the new certification service, print and packaging service providers can easily prove they can print PDF files correctly and better promote themselves as a partner of choice to existing and potential customers. Once certified, they receive a digital badge to show their PDF output workflow is compliant with the PDF/X-4 standard (ISO 15930-7:2010) for use on their website and for other marketing purposes. Certified companies also have their name and location displayed on the international Ghent Workgroup site, further promoting their ability to deliver consistent, accurate and high-quality printed output.

Available now, the service is €380 in Europe, and $399 in North America.
