Improving the Performance of InkJet and Laser Printing through Paper Modification
Abstract: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 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
