What They Mean for You
Most companies have them – a spattering of association or certification logos found at the bottom of a website or letterhead touting their company achievements and certifications. Some customers might notice them, but very few take the time to find out what all of those symbols stand for, and more importantly, what they really mean.
At Caskey Group, we work diligently to maintain our certifications, because we know the value they bring to our business, and to our customers’ projects. We are proud to display them, because they acknowledge the hard work that has gone into achieving them. Many of these designations put us in a small group of elite product and service providers who are the best in the business at what we do.
So…what do they mean for you, our customer?
A lot. Our certifications allow us to ensure the color continuity of your logo across multiple mediums, help you maintain environmental standards compliancy, provide you with unparalleled service and warranty for all your vinyl graphics, and so much more.
Forest Stewardship Council
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is the only internationally recognized standard
setting organization for responsible forest management supported equally by environmental organizations, social groups, and the corporate sector.
This certification allows us to offer clients use of the FSC trademarks and the Rainforest Alliance Certified seals to promote their certified forest products. The FSC Trademark identifies products that have been certified in accordance with the rules of the Forest Stewardship Council.
3M Preferred Graphics Installer
It takes four components to make a graphic message stand out: a great design, the right graphics materials, a skilled graphics manufacturer and an expert graphics installer. One without the other can reflect badly on the whole job. That’s why Caskey Group uses only 3M Vinyl products and is proud to have a 3M Preferred Graphics Installer.
Our investment in quality products and rigorous training ensures that your vehicles, walls or windows are given a flawless wrap with certified 3M vinyl that will not damage the surface or leave behind residue when removed – each and every time!
3M MCS Warranty
The 3M MCS Warranty is the most comprehensive finished graphics warranty in the industry. Through the 3M MCS Warranty, we offer guarantees and warranties against premature cracking, defects, excessive fading, and more to ensure your vehicle wraps and graphics stand the test of time.
Caskey’s G7 certification helps us assure our clients of color consistency and quality throughout our proofing, brand color management and print processes.
G7 is an industry-leading set of best practices for achieving gray balance and is the driving force for achieving visual similarity across all print processes. The application of this method enables printers to reproduce a similar visual appearance across all printing types and substrates. Only a select group of print service providers have successfully completed the training, examination and qualifications process required to earn this designation.
The HIPAA Security Rule establishes the national standards that protect individuals’ electronic personal health information and how it is created, received, used, or maintained by a Covered Entity or Business Associate. HIPAA compliance requires implementing and enforcing administrative, physical and technical safeguards, network security and technical policies to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and security of protected health information (PHI).
Being a HIPAA compliant printer means we use a regulated process to handle sensitive information and that we understand the importance of security. We train all employees tasked with handling PHI to follow specific and coordinated HIPAA Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in our manufacturing and information management processes. By doing so, we can assure our clients of full HIPAA compliance throughout the transmission, storage, disposal, and production of any data or materials using personal health information (PHI) or any other HIPAA covered information.
