As print buyers become more familiar with quality scoring systems, new competition is emerging where printers are graded against themselves and the competition for the best print quality. Even if the work remains 100% in contractual compliance, there is no guarantee that the customer is 100% satisfied with print quality. Many considerations come into play when determining how to achieve the best print quality, such as substrates, ink, and the print process capability. Using practical examples, Dan Uress will discuss how brand owners and printers can manage these challenges and expectations from both sides.
