Recycled paper has been commercially introduced to the market for more than 30 years, and it has been more than 20 years since the first brand of recycled paper was introduced for use in high speed copiers. It has achieved a growing importance in the past few years, related to a new wave of public perception of recycled paper as being more environmentally friendly. However, there are usually some users-perceived setbacks in the quality of recycled paper. These are often related to fiber qualities, such as runnability, longevity of the printer, opacity (affecting strikethrough or see through on double-sided printing), mechanical properties and edge quality.

This paper discussed the impact of various paper properties to attributes of print qualities. An improvement in print quality has the potential to drive more usage of recycled paper.

  • 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.
