Taking print quality beyond G7
BrandQ Experts are individuals who are qualified to train and implement the BrandQ program at brand and supplier facilities.

Upon completion of the program, BrandQ Experts will take an on-line test and receive a packet of materials to assess and report on during a live remote session. Upon completion of the test Experts will be listed on the Idealliance BrandQ website as a certified Idealliance BrandQ Expert.
