Print-through is an unwanted effect when you see some of the ink from the opposite side of a paper in a magazine. It is a combination of the show-through (=effect from opacity) and the strike-through (=effect from ink penetration), both properties are closely related to the paper structure
Print-through is an often-encountered print quality problem mainly caused by ink penetration and insufficient opacity of the paper.
Non uniformity in substrate structure relates closely to print-through. Therefore, spatial variations of print-through provide a probe to the substrate’s structure.The Print through software can be used to:
This tool provides an assessment of the print quality and it's relationship with paper’s structure in an effective, reliable, fast and intuitive way, using an affordable standard flatbed scanner with these parts:
License of the software package Print Through and a reflectance calibration set, a black NCS-sheet.
Manuals describing installation, scanning and evaluation (in English).
Print through software

The needed equipment is: A a standard PC equipped with Win 7 or Win 10, a professional flatbed scanner, the Print-through software, a black NCS sheet and a calibration set.
The customer needs to buy the PC and the scanner and Microsoft Excel is recommended to use to open the result files but also other spread sheet software with ability to open Tab separated ASCII-files works.
RISE will upon request recommend a scanner model.
