Test sheet for assessing print quality for orienteering maps

The IOF Map Commission has created 2 test sheets for evaluating print quality. One has been printed using CMYK+B colour offset printing, the other using high quality colour laser printing. The IOF has provided all member federations with copies of the test sheets for free, and your national federation should be contacted to obtain copies of the 2 sheets (see contact details here).

With use of the test sheets it is possible to examine print quality using the following files:
Print Test Sheet in OCAD 11
Instructions for test print evaluation

These files as well as Colour Order lists (in OCAD) for ISOM and ISSprOM respectivley can also be found in the file list below.
