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.

 

Color Management Expert:

Still have questions? Let's talk!

 

Schedule your individual discovery call today! The PR development team would like to understand your business goals and discuss how PR can help you reach them. (Appointments must take place before the Feb. 1 deadline in order to receive the IPIC incentive.)

 

 

 

 

Download our FREE PR Store Prep Checklist to help you prepare behind the scenes - as your business gets ready for implementation. Even if you don't end up moving forward with PR, this is a fantastic way to evaluate your space.

 

 

 

INCENTIVE DETAILS: A Licensing Agreement must be signed and submitted by February 1, 2019 indicating you are ready to move forward with The Print RefineryTM model. That document will be provided at your request or after your final discovery meeting.

 

Incentive benefits for hotel and airfare must be used to attend IPIC 2019. Hotel nights can be split up among team members or used to extend your stay. Hotel nights will be covered by IPI directly. Airfare will be reimbursed up to $500 total per business. The $1,000 Store Design Credit can be applied to flooring, furniture or display costs and will be reimbursed after purchase. Receipts will be required for both airfare and store design expenses.

 

You will be required to attend the PR Unplugged and PR Licensee sessions at IPIC 2019 (Wednesday 6:15-7:30pm and Thursday 9am-1pm).
