Graphic Specifications for Labeling

Proposal: Restrict images associated with SPL to 96 DPI to ensure uniform and predictable rendering in downstream uses of SPL.

Countered with

requirements: min/max size & clarity; under screen and print conditions.


Background from FDA:

  • small size internal / NLM pdfs
  • in 2005 received bad images (size).
  • Most current users have learned; however, new user groups will experience same problems.

Test procedure … print test docs on regular (good quality) office paper. Print is finally what its about. 96 dpi line graphics OK ½ to 2/3 paper width. Greyscale; colour
