Star Club Members

Article ID:


Membership to the Star Club is awarded to a company in recognition of outstanding printing quality. Achieve 5 or more stars by participating successfully in the International Newspaper Color Quality Club or by obtaining WAN-IFRA certification for standardised printing.

One “Star Club” star is awarded for each successful INCQC participation in a competition year, independent of the number of successful entries. Two “Star Club” stars are awarded for the successful WAN-IFRA certification of a printing plant.

Certification is valid for two years, after which it can be renewed.
