Ever feel like your proofing system is not exactly where it should be but you never could lay your finger on it exactly or understand the problem fully? The ITL Proofing measurement and grading product works on all forms and methods of proofing systems capable of imaging a PDF file. Now with the ITL Proofing grading tool you can confirm your imaging concerns and pinpoint the issue. More information about ITL Test Forms.

How it Works:

The customer prints from a PDF file provided via email by ITL using existing press settings, paper, and ink/toner. The customer returns the printed sample to ITL for analysis. After analyzing the proof, ITL delivers a set of reports that assigns a letter grade to various aspects of image quality and also shows the customer how his or her proofer compares with others in terms of image quality and lets them know where they stand.


The Proofing measurement and grading product results are presented to the customer as a three sheet PDF. The first is an academic-style report card. The remaining sheets offer analysis and insight, positioning major grades against histograms of the grades awarded to similar presses and against all ITL scores. Attributes of particular strength or weakness are also identified. The ITL Proofing measurement and grading product produces an overall grade of recognizable image attributes rather than a series of technical numbers that are, to many, arcane and open to interpretation. The ITL Proofing measurement and grading product compares the grades to those of other relevant presses and identifies strengths and weaknesses.

Your Report Card

  • An overall grade for your press that lets you know where you stand!

  • A comparison that stacks your press against similar machines we have tested.

  • A dozen individually graded attributes using an easy to follow A, B, C grading system.

  • Helpful hints for improving press performance.

This product is a onetime analysis of press sheets.
