Paper technology has advanced considerably in recent years. To achieve outstanding performance there needs to be a precise interaction between ink and the paper. Our 190 gram 1270 x 30m satin paper uses employs a unique ink receiver layer which ensures ink hitting the surface is accurate and stays where it is supposed to be. 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 190 gram 50” 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.

Advancements in digital printing techniques and media used – inks and paper – means that we are closer than ever to the Holy Grail of printing, the production of photo-realistic prints from digital images. It has been a challenge for many years as the techniques used differ so greatly from those used by photographers. Their process may be laborious, but the images produced from, as an example, 35mm film, are comprised of solid colours, whether they be black and white, or the full colour spectrum.
Developing photographic film involves the use of chemicals, while in the field of digital printing, there has been a tremendous advancement in the production of eco-friendly inks.
Inkjet technology uses ink to create individual tightly packed dots on the paper. These dots are so accurately placed that while the naked eye cannot see it, tiny gaps of white are left between these dots – they do not overlap at all. However, the way our eyes and brain work, we only register the colour and cannot see these areas of white. Basically, we only see full colour. However, the existence of these white gaps means that until now the quality of printed images has not quite matched up to photographic prints.
Today, those printers able to print the largest number of dots in a given area (DPI) leave smaller areas of white and thus the result is much closer to a real photograph. Of course, the best printer head is not all that is required to produce photo-realistic prints.
The role of paper in this process is also crucial as a high-quality satin or gloss photo paper guarantees more ink will be used and that it will be absorbed more quickly. This means that any bleeding can be contained (no fuzzy edges). This precise control of the ink creates higher ink density and further reduces the white spaces between the dots of ink.
