Paper technology has had to advance in recent years to match the onwards progression of Inkjet technology. As print machines have been able to achieve higher resolution and more precise colour reproduction due to expanding the quantity of ink cartridges, paper has had to improve to deliver the full advances the machines have made.
Why our rolls provides exceptional results
Outstanding print results require a precise interaction between ink and the paper. Our 250 gram satin paper uses a unique ink receiver layer to manage the ink staying fixed in position when it hits the surface of the paper. This is vital if one wishes to print photo quality images, fine details and smooth half tones. Traditional toner based printers use paper that typically have a very flat surface (giving a flat image) unlike high quality instant dry satin papers where the surface is made up of tens of thousands of tiny pyramids. Problems such as metamerism or bronzing occur when a lower performance paper is unable to withstand heavy ink saturation when the droplets of ink bleed into one another. This results in colours appearing to shift under different lighting conditions or small colour variations being lost completely.
Our 250 gram satin photo paper produces excellent results with dye based or pigmented inks. For customers requiring their photo quality prints to be fade resistant we would always suggest using pigmented (see our HP Z range of machines) where there is no compromise on quality but all the benefits of an ink designed to look vibrant years into the future. Dynamic colour accuracy and tonal quality and will be exceptionally strong making our satin photo rolls ideal for proofing.
To produce high quality print a lot of expertise is required in combination with the best hardware, ink and paper. Our print division has four operations containing 13 wide format inkjet machines and produce a lot print for our demanding customers. We regularly test new paper in a bid to provide ever better results but have found Sihl's 250 gram satin photo paper to deliver both quality and consistent results.
