Inkjet Printing: Effect of Paper Properties on Print Quality

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 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.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
