Media & Consumables

Print engines are designed with specific media requirements for their technology. Print Engine imaging quality may be strongly effected by media and consumables variations.

For example, inkjet media is designed to minimize bleed and wicking, shorten dry time, maximize density and gamut, maximize fade resistance, maximize waterfastness, provide appropriate gloss, etc. Spot size, including shape, uniformity, satellites, etc. may be strongly influenced.

The use of ink, toner, and other consumables that are not in full compliance with the print engine's requirements may adversely effect one or more print quality attributes—a major issue that needs to be assured, especially with non-OEM consumables.
