ABSTRACT

This paper addresses factors of line image quality on grain leather printed via inkjet printer. Lines were printed onto coated leather media, and line width, edge blurriness, and edge raggedness were evaluated for line image quality. Various factors influenced to wetting and capillary wicking were studied and found out that wicking through capillary between fibers causes significant feathering on leather surface similar with pulp capillary in copy paper. Polyurethane and acrylic resin coating resulted good image quality by reducing capillary wicking. The mixture of polyurethane and acrylic resin applied on grain leather satisfied with both image quality and surface hand. AllWriteTM ink brought best results of image quality, comparing with VeraPrintTM ink and JetWriteTM ink.
