Real world meets lab

We made our prints ex­actly like you would, be­fore scru­ti­n­is­ing them in de­tail in the lab

We down­loaded and in­stalled the latest ver­sions of driv­ers for each desk­top printer, and ran noz­zle check rou­tines and clean­ing cy­cles where re­quired. We then car­ried out print head align­ment pro­ce­dures to en­sure op­ti­mum ac­cu­racy.

Test prints were cre­ated from a range of land­scape, por­trait and black-and-white photos as well as our of­fi­cial test chart, printed at stan­dard colour set­tings and also us­ing the print­ers’ op­tional colour ad­just­ments and photo en­hance­ment fea­tures. Print speeds were mea­sured for border­less 6x4 inch prints at nor­mal qual­ity set­tings, and for border­less A4, A3 and A3+ sizes (if avail­able) in high qual­ity mode.

We used the same im­ages for the test chart and for the por­trait, land­scape and black-and-white photos when test­ing the online print labs. They were up­loaded us­ing the pre­ferred online or­der­ing process in each case.
