The SpencerLab Printer Test Suite

The SpencerLab Digital Color Laboratory has announced the release of Version 4.9 of the SpencerLab Printer Test Suite.

Assisted by over a dozen key industry sponsors, SpencerLab has applied its expertise in testing of Print Quality as well as Throughput Speed Performance and Cost-per-Print to develop an expanded suite of standard test documents. For the first time, users and vendors have a precision tool to allow real-world “apples-to-apples” comparisons.

The SpencerLab Printer Test Suite consists of over 100 test files (in over 200 adaptations, printing over 510 pages) and covers the photographic, consumer, office/enterprise, commercial/graphic, large format and production markets. Files include monochrome and color; CMYK and RGB; PostScript, PDF, and application-specific formats. Output sizes range from 4x6" and 8x10" through A, A4, B, A3, and large format, for domestic U.S. and international markets.

Recently released Version 4.9 is web-based, allowing download of individual test files as needed. Contact SpencerLab to discuss licensing arrangements.
