  • Definition:

    The ability of paper to resist penetration of the ink and not absorb it into the fibers of the paper is termed ink holdout.

    Coated papers are less absorbent or have a greater ink holdout than uncoated papers. Greater ink holdout can result in more vibrant color printing; however, it may be necessary to allow for extra curing time for the ink to avoid smears.
