How can print shops get the test form?
The test form is part of a corresponding service carried out
by a Fogra representative including checking the settings of a
printing press on site.
The process is similar at Heidelberg. A service
representative visits, brings the inking and dampening control test
form from Heidelberg and uses it to perfectly set the machine. In
addition, the customers receive instruction in how to use and
interpret the form.
You can receive further information on the test forms in
conjunction with the respective services either from your
- or at
