Thursday, October 08, 2009
Vibrant colors true to the original on a top-class substrate make for high-quality print products. However, it is not always easy to achieve the required quality given the many different factors that impact on the print result. In order to ensure stable and reproducible print quality, users need to be able to identify and monitor each of these factors.
