The range of papers suitable for continuous-feed inkjet printing continues to expand. Still, market penetration for high-speed production inkjet remains low as challenges remain for high ink coverage, high-quality graphics applications. The market is experiencing strong growth as challenges with ink and paper are being met every day as the industry develops a deeper understanding of the value proposition for continuous-feed inkjet. Consultative selling is essential, not only for paper mills, but also for printers, to sell the value proposition and also to better understand the market needs.
