During the last four decades, inkjet printing has become one of the most prevalent printing technologies for home and office desktop printing applications. Advances in inkjet technology allow the printing of full-color, high-resolution photographs of equivalent quality to those from other printing techniques that have prevailed in the recent past. In the commercial printing sector, inkjet technology is being widely used for digital proofing prior to running a print job on a press; for short-run, wide-format digital printing such as posters for outdoor advertising; and for applications that require printing onto non-paper substrates such as rigid display boards. In addition, inkjet printers are being developed for integration with offset presses to print customized information in magazines, such as tailored advertising (Sirringhaus & Shimoda, 2003). Finally, in the general industrial sector, the inkjet technology is considered as the leading technology for printing customized information such as “sell-by” dates and product identification codes, as part of packaging or production processes.
