Overnight Labels Achieves GMI Certification with Both CVS and Walgreens
Overnight Labels, an award-winning full service label and flexible packaging printing company, announced today that it has received full certification from Graphic Measures International (GMI)to print digital and flexographic labels and packaging components for the CVS brand. The company is already a GMI certified printer for Walgreens, and has maintained the highest GMI rating of BLUE since certification in 2016. The designation enables the two drug store chains’ private-label suppliers to use Overnight Labels for printed packaging of their private-branded products.
Certification was awarded following an intensive on-site audit involving independent testing and inspections of company-wide processes and capabilities. It included an in-depth focus on graphics and color management to verify that Overnight Labels utilizes the latest technology in their print and color management processes. Other areas evaluated included press quality (registration, trapping, die-line accuracy, finishing) and quality assurance (process implementation, audits, traceability, barcode readability, non-compliance protocol).
“Overnight Labels is proud to be one of only 250 certified printers across the United States. Certification is important to us because it is important to our customers, said Don Earl, Owner of Overnight Labels. “Achieving color consistency has always been an area of expertise for us, but our customers are extra secure in knowing that we print to specific numbers and standards, not a subjective set of rules,” he added.
