With the advent of the spectrophotometer, flexographers’ ability to measure color and establish pass/fail limits has greatly improved the quality and consistency of the printed product.

Building on that ability, the print quality score has pushed to quantify not just a pass or fail, but also distance from a perfect match.

The print quality score helps gain a better understanding of the metrics that might go into a quality evaluation, even ones that can’t be measured with a spectrophotometer.

Get an inside look at print quality scoring from a brand that requires it, agencies who monitor it, and printers who control it to improve print quality and consistency.


Watch Paul Lancelle, Virtual Fall Conference 2020 program chair, discuss this session with FTA’s Director of Education Joe Tuccitto.
