This report is a presentation on the effect of ink film thickness on the gloss of print. Four inks: cyan, magenta, yellow and black were used. Three different sheet-fed offset process inks were tested. The studies were performed for a wide range of ink film thickness within 0.3–2.9 μm. The prints were made with the use of IGT C1 printability tester on matte-coated wood-free paper base according to the ISO 12647-2 standard . The gloss of print was measured at 60° geometry condition. It has been shown that ink gloss increases with increasing the ink film thickness. Interpolation formulas were given for chromatic (cyan, magenta, yellow, red, green, blue) and achromatic (black, CMY, CMYK) colours.
