Certifications

At Shawmut, our goal is to exceed client expectations with every project and that begins with quality. To that end, we have pursued several certifications that enable us to consistently deliver quality products and services.

Forest Stewardship Council®

FSC Environmental Certification LogoThe Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®), established in 1993, is an independent organization that is widely supported by conservation groups. Today, FSC certification has become one of the top standards for environmentally conscience printers, because the certification assures consumers that materials come from forests that are managed to meet social, economic and ecological needs. As an FSC certified printer, Shawmut can help you reduce the size of your environmental footprint.

GRACoL 7 Color System

GraCOL 7 Color Certification LogoGRACoL 7, otherwise known as G7, is a specification used to provide consistent grayscale reproduction across multiple devices, processes and media. Using the G7 color control system Shawmut is able to provide clients with greater consistency and color matching across various print jobs and paper stocks. This allows for shorter make-readies, reduced waste and lower costs—all important features which benefit customers. Additionally, G7 color certification supports lean manufacturing processes and our environmental initiatives.

HIPAA Privacy Compliance

HIPAA Privacy Compliant LogoShawmut understands that HIPAA compliance is critical for today’s leading healthcare organizations. Their patients trust that their private information will be protected and it is our duty to ensure that trust is not broken.

With the support of a national leader in HIPAA training, Shawmut became an HIPAA Privacy Compliant organization in 2015. We have implemented the proper safeguards, systems and procedures to protect sensitive personal health information. This enables Shawmut to provide end-to-end communication solutions for healthcare clients of all sizes.
