Inkjet Printing: Effect of Paper Properties on Print Quality
Abstract:A set of papers of various grades were characterized both on the optical and physico-chemical points of view. Then, they were all printed with the same color ink-jet printer by the use of a quadrichromic set of inks. Their performances were compared to one another by both densitometric and colorimetric measurements:
- Classical densitometric quality criteria (solid density, dot gain, relative contrast index, …) were evaluated;
- Color gamuts were determined;
- Print-through properties were also measured.
With the help of some theoretical considerations, we recognized a possibility to classify the behaviors of the papers at least qualitatively. The print-through determinations allowed to evaluate the penetration of the colorants into the paper and to confront the results with print rendering criteria. The final target is to derive an evaluative method for further investigations.

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.
