Inkjet: 5 Tips for Printing for the Future

Did you know the Infotrends U.S. Production Printing & Copying Market Forecast projects inkjet printing will make up more than half of the total digital production print volume in the U.S. by 2019?

Inkjet has been the most significant innovation in printing since the creation of digital presses. Inkjet printing is the only type of production printing where colorant is added to the paper without contact.

Here are 5 tips to optimize your inkjet printing and create handouts and graphics that are sure to impress.

Tip 1

Inkjet compatible papers include rolls and treated, untreated and offset coated papers ranging from 8.5 x 11 to 20.8125 x 29.5

Tip 2

Using paper specifically designed for inkjet processes helps ink set better and keeps ink on the surface, which also helps it dry better.

Tip 3

Have you ever printed a high-coverage image on a sheet of paper and the edges started curling up? To reduce or eliminate this curling with inkjet printing jobs, always print on both sides of the paper.

Tip 4

Inkjet printed images tend to be of a much higher density and opacity due to the way inkjet treatments allow ink to sit closer to the surface of the paper, creating a sharper, richer picture.

Tip 5

Other types of production printer inks absorb into uncoated paper, taking the life and luster out of the color. Inkjet printers have a water-based formula that still absorbs into the paper, but all the color stays on the surface, keeping the end product as lively and colorful as intended.
