The aim of this work was to investigate the effect of relative humidity of the ambient air on the initial print quality when printing on multifunctional office papers with the present generation of desktop inkjet printers. A range of multifunctional office papers with known behaviour were chosen to give variations in print quality parameters like optical density, colour-to-colour bleed and wicking. The papers were inkjet printed at various levels of humidity with a standardised test image. Print quality was evaluated visually and by image analysis.

Some properties were clearly humidity-dependent, such as colour density and colour-to-colour bleed, but only for some printers. Other properties, like black optical density, were not effected at all. The difference between paper brands was in all cases larger than the difference between humidities.

  • 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.
