Test Printing

Test Printing

If you’re new to printing or have a new artwork to print for the first time, test printing is a good place to start. A test print will show you exactly how colour, detail and/or resolution are translating from screen to print. If, after test printing, you find that your file needs adjustments, we can help with that too.

Textured, matte papers:

Semi-gloss/lustre fine art paper

A4 Test Prints

$12.50 per A4 test print

Note:  A4 test prints are offered at a reduced rate by making use of excess paper from large jobs, or end-of-roll stock that doesn't have enough length to be roll-fed through the printer. Using these remnants means we can pass on a lower cost and minimise paper waste. Please note that paper may have slight imperfections, however this will not affect the print quality.

There are two options for A4 proofs. You can choose either or both, depending on your needs:

- Print the whole image: your entire image is scaled down and printed onto an A4 sheet. Useful for checking colour, contrast, saturation etc.

- Print a cropped section at 100%: a section of your image is printed at 100% (i.e. final print size) onto an A4 sheet. Useful for checking resolution and detail at final intended size.

Roll Print Proofs

24 x 8” strip: $20.00

A proofing option for large scale prints (over A2 in size). Roll print proofs allow you to test a section of an image at 100% (i.e. intended print size). They are useful for checking resolution and detail prior to committing to a final, full size print.

If you intend to order a roll print proof, please contact us with a link to your file and specifications of your final print - we’ll advise of the process from there.

Paper Swatches & Sample Sets

You may want to have test prints made to explore our different paper options, rather than check file quality.
To test drive paper types, we've created two options - print swatches & sample sets.
