Print Quality Test at IPIC 2019

Posted By Natalie Gunn, Friday, January 25, 2019




How Can I Participate?


Compare and evaluate output quality, color and consistency from various members and equipment types. IPI Board Member, Phil Canter and Color Management Specialist, Sal Passanisi will lead the conversation and include peer evaluations, troubleshooting discussion and group Q + A.

Print and bring the following samples to IPIC 2019:

• (1)- 8x10 RA4 Photographic Print

• (1)- 8x10 Fine Art Inkjet Print

• (1)- 8x10 Canvas Print (from whatever printer you have)

• (1)- 8x10 Metal Print (on white gloss)

• (1)- 8x10 Digital Press Print on C2S (or similar)

NOTE: All prints must be labeled with your contact information, IPI Number, or attached business card.

Use the output image (link below) to product all sample prints. They will be evaluated for consistency across each media and screen match to identify good calibration. If your prints are not matching or if you are seeing better results in other member samples, you will have the chance to discuss how prints were produced and solve quality issues together.



On-Site Instructions


Drop your prints off in the Messina 1 classroom and return throughout the week to compare with others. The Print Quality Test room will be open during registration hours all week for you to drop off materials and/or view output.


Group Discussion + Evaluation


Group discussions will be held on Monday, March 4th and Tuesday, March 5th from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm.

(If you plan to take your samples with you after IPIC, please pick them up by Wednesday, March 6th at 6:00 pm. All samples not picked up after that time will be thrown away. IPI is not responsible for lost or stolen samples.
