Dear reader,

Dear Reader,
I am proud to present to you the 11th edition of
the IC Circular. The on-line version of this journal
can be found here.

This Circular features eight research papers that focus mainly on science and technology side of the journal.

A big "Thank You" goes out to the reviewers of the journal how reviewed and commented on the submitted articles. Your hard work is appreciated.
The topics of the articles are quite diverse.
They range from inkjet inks to papermaking, to paper brightness indices, flexographic printing, NFC and augmented reality to logo design influenced by traditional elements of Chinese culture.
From this short editorial you can see that the articles in this edition are quite diverse and there should be at least one interesting article for each reader.
After this issue the IC Circular will be merging with the Journal of Print and Media Technology Research JPMTR published by IARIGAI. Don’t worry there will still be a special “IC edition” of the JPMTR.
What does this mean to the authors? From now on you need to follow the submission rules of the JPMTR, which can be found here on the IARIGAI-guidelines page
Make sure you read these guideline carefully and follow them. Your research articles can still be submitted to my attention and I will initiate the review process according to the guidelines of the JPMTR. I will be working closely with editor of the JPMTR for the IC guest edition.
Don’t hesitate to send me your manuscripts via email to You can write to me in German or English, but your articles need to be in English.

Best regards,
Martin Habekost
