This testing is an important feature that differentiates the quality of HP Large Format Print Media from those of its competitors. We are committed to stringent product testing and continuous improvement to achieve product superiority in the marketplace. HP Original inks, coatings and printing systems are designed to work together to provide uncompromising image quality, durability, consistency, performance and value you can rely on every time.
