Abstract

Improvement in ink jet image quality may be realized by toning liquid ink dye colored images with a colorless toner. The toning process with colorless, that is unpigrnented, toner comprises: electrostatically developing an entire ink jet printed image receiver with colorless toner; optionally removing colorless toner from the non-inked areas of the receiver by an air knife or other means; and fixing the colorless toner to the inked image by conventional fusing means. The toning process affords improved gloss, brighter optical densities, quicker drying times, greater rub resistance to smearing, and w-ater-fastness to ink jet images. A related concept has been described for providing xerographic color prints with uniform gloss by J. Bares, Xerox Disclosure Journal, Vol. 16, No. 1, JanuarylFebruary 1991, p. 69.
