Ink jet technology is used very often for indoor poster applications. Many different printing systems based on thermal or piezo ink jet printing are used, mostly with dye-based ink sets. A big variety of ink jet media is offered. It is often claimed that these media are universal for all combinations of inks and printers (thermal and piezo ink jet).

In this paper is presented a study of commercial photograde papers for wide format (WF) poster printing on 4 typical WF printers (2 thermal and 2 piezo ink jet printers). These media claim to be universal, i.e. they deliver photograde quality on both thermal and piezo ink jet printers.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
