QMC UV Offset Commercial Printing

About

HISTORY

Excellence in every proof.

From 2011 to 2021 the power of four renowned Central New York printers came together to form the QMC Group: Quartier Printing, Midstate Printing, Cayuga Press and Brodock Press.  The incredible employees from these legacy printers brought decades of experience and rock solid, long-lasting client relationships.  This has formed the foundation and defined the culture of the QMC Group to this day.  We have been setting the standard for quality, innovation, service, and corporate responsibility ever since.

G7 certified commercial printer

Certified to be the best

G7 is a printing standard established by the IDEAlliance—the world’s foremost certifying body for competencies, systems, materials and facilities in the printing industry.

G7 is also a universal calibration process that can be used to adjust any press or printing system to a common appearance. This quality standard nearly guarantees that your print projects will look as good as possible, achieving the same high-end result across a range of printing devices.

Quality

  • Helps printers predictably reproduce color
  • Provides a more accurate proof to press sheet match
  • Makes it easier to meet and maintain color expectations

Efficiency

  • Aligns all devices, substrates and inks
  • Reduces the amount of paper and ink

Consistency

  • Re-prints will always look remarkably similar
  • One consistent set of color targets regardless of the device
    (digital, offset, inkjet, etc.)

SUSTAINABILITY

Big printer. Small footprint.

Part of our mission to be a state-of-the-art printer includes our commitment to sustainability. Not only do sustainable practices represent the future of the industry, but the future of our planet as well.

Print Releaf

We are proud members of Print Releaf – the world’s first platform that automatically converts your paper footprint into actual trees. As you print, you actively replant trees in forests that need it most around the world.

  • A verification and reforestation process based on actual tree usage
  • Provides certificates and reports about the forests you have “releafed”
  • Part of the Trillion Trees Movement, decade-long journey to restore one trillion trees in forests that need it most
  • Scientists estimate that nature-based solutions, such as reforestation, can provide up to 1/3 of the emissions reductions required by 2030 to meet the Paris Agreement targets

Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi)

Science based targets provide companies with a clearly defined path to reduce emissions in line with the Paris Agreement goals.

The QMC Group has “committed” to this initiative which means:
