Inkjet printing technology continues to advance. One of the drivers for this has been the customer need for increased resistance to fading and physical durability. Whilst these needs have in many respects been met by the use of pigmented inks this has resulted in the appearance of other effects, notably gloss colour.

This presentation will describe and demonstrate the issue of gloss colour in inkjet printing. Methods of measurement and visualisation will also be described.

It will be shown that depending on the application gloss colour can be an attribute, artefact or defect. Possible applications and customer benefits will also be described, particularly in terms of brand identity, personalisation and security.
