Exploring Production Inkjet? Choose the Right Paper to Ease the Transition

Are you new to production inkjet? Or maybe you’re an early adapter and would like to learn how to appeal to a new customer base, print more for a current customer or gain production efficiencies? The truth is, using a treated production inkjet paper from Domtar can help you with all of the above. Here’s how:

  • Appeal to new customers – Has your business traditionally printed monochrome transactional documents and, now that you have the ability to print color, you’re looking into expanding your customer base (or print more for current customers)? Well, you’re certainly not alone. I’ve talked to several printers at various industry events that are hoping to make the same transition. It’s crucial to remember that with new customers come new expectations, especially in terms of service, print quality and paper options.
  • Gain production efficiencies – Anyone that been a part of the printing business for any length of time knows that choosing the right paper can have a huge impact on the efficiency of production. High-speed production inkjet is no exception. In fact, considering the speed at which inkjet presses run and the rigors involved in post-processing, choosing a paper from a mill known for quality is the best way to make sure your jobs run smoothly and aren’t disturbed with unexpected production delays.
  • Use less ink – Depending on the amount of ink coverage in a job and the end quantity that needs to be produced, using a treated paper may actually save ink, and therefore possibly saving your operation money once you look at the total job cost.
