Ok this has been an idea I've had for a while - a thread for test prints. It would be great to see what is out there so dig up what you've got and post them here :).

I'll get things rolling with an example that shows test prints go a long way back. This one is from 1966 and is a combination of three different posters by Wes Wilson (one is on the back) all from around the same print run time.

Keylines are awesome James and that Phish test print is very cool - still very cohesive for a test print. :clap: :clap:

love this thread. most of the test prints that i have are already in the database.

as a fan of screen printing, the test print is totally awesome byproduct of printing. i love test prints a slight bit less than i love OG's.
