Paper can also be coated with a variety of substances that affect its ability to be printed or written upon. Printing papers use a coating designed to keep the ink on the surface and the edges of the image sharp. This is referred to as a “passive” coating.
The inkjet process uses liquid or gel inks in cartridges with a separate nozzle for each color.
Most inkjet printers us 4 colors (magenta, cyan, yellow, and black) although there are some printers that use more. The 4 colors are the same as those used in the printing industry to produce a broad spectrum of colors, called process color to reproduce realistic, lifelike images.
