An “Offset Printing Quality Standards Checklist” is essential for any pressroom. Without it, pressmen will make their own judgments as to what is acceptable and what is not. If management is serious about quality, they will effectively communicate well defined parameters of all the pressroom variables that affect quality.
Making a checklist is not rocket science but sometimes you just need somewhere to get started. Here we provide an outline that will help you get started. This is done by training personnel, creating benchmarks for print quality, and measuring print result to check for statistically significant variations.This does not have to be a time consuming or difficult procedure just because it is for the long-term benefit of your business.
