Procedures: Impressions Incorporated’s Quality Management System (QMS) contains written procedures to cover all of the requirements listed below.
- Training – Employees are trained annually on our QMS and current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP). Training is documented in our web-based “Wiki” document library.
- Art files – Production art files are converted to locked PDFs and verified pixel by pixel against customer supplied files using Global Vision’s optical verification system.
- Versioning – We create a unique internal item number for each version of customer supplied art.
- Line clearance – All manufacturing lines must be cleared of product before starting a new set up.
- Gang runs – For regulated items, we do not print multiple versions on the same press form. For non-regulated items, parts of a similar look and style are kept segregated from each other.
- Packing – Shipping cartons are labeled as they are filled.
- Product verification and tracking – We print blank detection and identifier marks are on all press sheets. We assign and print a unique number on each position of an imposed press sheet. A version specific barcode is printed on each piece which is verified as the piece runs through its final equipment.
