Indigo Light Inks: Raising the Bar for Image Quality
In this paper, we reflect back on the innovations that Hewlett-Packard has brought to the field of photo quality inkjet printing over the past 10 years, and how we are leveraging many of these innovations into the realm of digital publishing.
As a case study, we describe the process of creating a high quality photo book, a Joel Meyerowitz catalogue of vintage color prints, which was produced for the photographer's exhibit at the Edwynn Houk Gallery in New York in April to June 2006. In this instance, a 7-color HP Indigo press 5000, equipped with standard process CMYK inks plus light cyan, light magenta, and Pantone Cool Gray 9C was used. All text was printed using the gray ink, while images were reproduced using 7-color process CMYKcmg on the front and back covers, and 6-color process CMYKcm inside.

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.
