Many commercially available ink jet media claim to deliver photograde image quality, i.e. high image quality including a uniform high print gloss. Although many glossy papers show a high gloss in unprinted areas, the gloss in the printed areas is often much lower, especially in areas
with high ink loads. This is the case for both Narrow Format ink jet printing (SOHO printing, printing at home) and Wide Format ink jet printing. It is a problem for thermal as well as piezo ink jet printers. In this paper is presented a study of print gloss for Narrow Format printing with
both thermal and piezo ink jet printers. First, a few examples are given of print gloss of commercial glossy photo papers. Then, the paper describes how the combination of different binders can influence the gloss in unprinted and printed areas.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
