Percentage dot gain on coated and uncoated papers has been determined to be different depending on the ink hue used for 150 line screens. Cyan, magenta, yellow, and black inks all showed different amounts of dot gain from the printing plate to the paper- Effective dot area on the paper versus dot area on the printing plate data are presented.
