Abstract
Digital Imaging has introduced Color Printers as proofing
device. On demand printing and Low volume Printing is generally
supported by color digital printing method. Color Inkjet Printing is
one of the digital color printing processes. Here the ink is in form
of a liquid. The ink and substrate interaction determines the
quality of print and the durability of the image.
In this paper, the PAPER properties and relationship with
inkjet printability are studied. Inkjet Print Quality can be affected
by modifying the paper characteristics, ink composition and the
printer, and by improving the interactions between these variables.
For light fastness properties, the interactions between the ink and
the paper are the important factors. The experimental samples
used in this study were produced on a pilot paper machine at three
different levels of refining, filler, internal sizing and surface sizing.
