Inkjet printing on different surfaces CPD

Continuing Professional Development

Date:5th June 2009
Venue: CFPR, UWE Bristol
Instructors: Paul Laidler, Carinna Parraman, Melissa Olen & Peter Mccalion



The workshop provided an overview and key considerations for artists and designers wanting to print digital files using wide format inkjet technology. The areas covered in the workshop included: considering papers qualities, understanding the physical properties of ink on paper, scaling and image resolution considerations, hardware and software options.

The workshop presented each participant with the opportunity to produce a series of A2 size prints on a range of different substrates. By printing on different substrates the focus of the workshop discussed the manipulation possibilities of a digitally rendered file outside of the computer software. From this perspective the course looked at the physical effects of weight, colour and surface quality upon the output of a single digital file.
