Digital Printing, including inkjet and dry electrophotography (laser), is rapidly increasing while most analogue processes are flat or declining. This growth is driven by the increase in speed and quality of digital prints enabling new uses for consumer and business users.

However, both inkjet and laser printing suffer from issues that could be easily addressed by paper improvements. Hewlett Packard, working with International Paper, incorporated some of these improvements into the HP Everyday papers. Everyday paper performance was improved giving:

• Faster drying time

• Darker blacks

• Vivid colors

We achieved these improvements through the addition of color locking technology.

These improvements and other improvements that improve inkjet and laser performance are available to the paper industry. Hewlett Packard, and other printer manufacturers, would like to see the paper industry incorporate these improvements and allow further growth in digital printing.

  • 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.
