How to choose a high-end printer: A guide

In theory, knowing how to choose a high-end printer will be useful to everyone working in the creative industries, whether you're an artist, creative director or graphic designer. Print technology, with its countless options and confusing jargon, is a taxing field to master, but it's an important one. Having a printer that runs out accurate test proofs is by far the best way to ensure there are no nasty surprises when a job comes off the press.

A good proof also helps win over those clients who struggle to visualise what the completed project will look like. Never again will you have to explain: "It'll look much better once it's back from the printers." So, if you think you'll see a return on your investment from the satisfied clients and time saved, it's definitely worth considering.
