Paper Title:
Effects of Paper Properties on Printing Dot Gain and Color Gamut
  Abstract

The properties of art paper and offset paper were measured, including whiteness, smoothness, gloss and absorbability. And these paper samples were printed using machine proofing with the uniform printing processes. Dot percentage and the tri-stimulus values (X, Y and Z) of dot areas and solid areas were tested with the spectrophotometer X-Rite 530 on the print paper samples. At last, dot gain curve and chromatic diagram were drawn after data analyzing and processing, and then the influences of paper properties on printing dot gain and gamut of color were analyzed. The results showed less dot gain value and greater gamut of color occurred because of higher smoothness, gloss, whiteness and lower absorbability to art paper when the printing conditions were definite, so the dot reproduction quality on the surface of art papers was better. But which of the above-mentioned were opposite to offset papers.
