About the Print Quality Contest


The Print Quality Contest is designed to be more than a contest; it is also a valuable learning experience for all entrants. Feedback is provided on the print quality of newspapers in six different areas including black ink laydown, color ink laydown, color registration, halftone quality, page alignment and overall print alignment and overall print appearance.
