Paper properties, such as roughness, air permeability, pore size and their relationships to
the ink mileage were studied. Ink mileage was measured using commercial toluene based
gravure coated inks marked with trace metal carboxylates, which can be detected after
printing by means of Inductively Coupled Argon Plasma (ICAP/ICP) Atomic Emission
Spectroscopy (AES). Magenta ink was doped one metal carboxylate, while cyan and
black inks were doped with another metal carboxylate. The amount of ink transferred was
