Comparative Test: Eleven multifunction printers: Bleeding: Quality
If adjacent colors bleed into each other, ink quality is poor.
To test this, our lab uses the file depicted to the right. Normal copy paper is used, with no change in the drivers.
The test file is ready for download here.
The pictures below show a black area crossed by colored lines. You can see that all printers have almost no problems with bleeding. On the right side in each picture you see an enlargement of a black line on yellow background.
