G7 Master Printer Certification
Cosmos attained the Master G7 certification from IDEAlliance, making us one of handful of printers awarded for this distinguished certification. This program certifies that Cosmos has implemented successfully the latest G7 Proof-to-Print process and recognizes that Cosmos uses the most up-to-date techniques as well as process controls and standards required to produce consistent high-quality commercial printing.

The G7 process provides our clients the insurance and accuracy of color reproduction throughout the entire workflow, from digital image to final printed press sheet.

Additionally, Cosmos does not stop there when it comes to certified procedures for quality assurance. Cosmos has recently installed GMG ColorProof to assure that proofs are consistent, irrespective of press, substrate, or inks used. In addition, the proofing system was deemed ready when the company conducted its recent G7 certification process.

Forest Stewardship Council® Certification
Cosmos Communications, Inc. leads the way in insuring responsible use of forest resources. That is why we applied for FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certification. FSC certification means we receive independent confirmation by a third party to insure we are meeting the highest environmental standards by using paper made from well-managed forests.

As printers, we have a responsibility to the environment and we believe well-managed forestry is the right approach. That is why we are proud to announce our Forest Stewardship Council certification. This certification ensures that for those clients ordering FSC Certified paper, Cosmos is following FSC standards for Chain of Custody tracking and handling of that paper.

FSC Chain of Custody (CoC) Certification
This certification sets the standard for forest-product operations including, manufacturers, distributors and retailers that purchase and sell FSC-certified products. CoC Certification ensures that the claim of FSC is valid and is based on credible inventory management systems.

Cosmos Communications, Inc. has taken the initiative to obtain this voluntary certification that allows our customers to choose papers that ensure and promote responsible management of forests.

FSC certified by the Rainforest Alliance
This certification as defined by the Rainforest Alliance, is a conservation tool whereby an independent, third party awards a seal of approval guaranteeing consumers that the products they are buying are the result of practices carried out according to a specific set of criteria balancing ecological, economic and social considerations. www.rainforest-alliance.org
