The Effect of Paper Texture on Printed Colors
Abstract:Paper is one of the most important parameters which influence the final print color appearance. The paper's characteristics such as gloss, texture, whiteness, grammage and, etc, may influence the print quality and color. In the present study, the texture effect of coated papers on the print color appearance is investigated. For this purpose, the coated papers were chosen with the same grammage (260g) and almost the similar glass and closed whiteness values but different textures. A color chart included 2125 samples was generated by Eye-One GretagMacbeth professional maker. The chart was printed using two inkjet printers, including a Canon9000 and a Epson50P. To be able to analysis the texture properties each paper image was captured using a professional scanner. The Co-occurrence matrix and Gradient distance methods was applied to achieve the texture properties of the papers. The results show that gradient distance method can be used as a proper method for computing the texture properties of the paper. The texture difference computed by this method shows a suitable correlation with the color difference caused by changing the paper's texture; however it depends on the printers' mark. Moreover, there is a good correlation between the value of gradient differences and the gamut volume differences obtained for papers with different textures while the other parameters such as gloss and whiteness are the same.

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.
