During the last few years, digital printing technology has begun to play a significant role in the printing industry due to the quest for short runs and variable data printing. Digital printing using inkjet technology makes heavy demands on the paper's ability to rapidly absorb liquid and thereby increases the need to understand what parameters that affect the dynamics and interactions between paper and ink and how print quality is affected by these parameters. In this paper, the print quality for nine pilot papers with varying composition and eight different commercial papers has been studied. The printouts have been made with two small office/Home office printers; the print quality measurements for this study have been line quality-measurements and color-gamut volume measurements. The line quality and the color gamut volume for the commercial papers and the pilot papers are discussed.
