H.J. Saarelma and P.T. Oittinen. Paper and print noise as limiting factors of information capacity. In Products of Papermaking, Trans. of the Xth Fund. Res. Symp. Oxford, 1993, (C.F. Baker, ed.), pp 351–365, FRC, Manchester, 2018.


Print noise and its effect on information capacity and visual image quality are analyzed. Noise in prints originates from the signal (immaterial image information), the printing process and the materials. The frequency bands and orders of magnitude of the noise associated with the different sources are discussed with emphasis on general principles and limits in off set printing.
