– This refers to the horizontal or vertical stripes which appear in an image, after printing. Vertical lines for printers where the print head moves left-to-right along the X-Axis (ie, nearly all printers on the market), and horizontal for printers where the print head is stationary and the platen moves in and out repeatedly (ie, Kornit printer). Banding is often an indication of dropped channels or nozzles, but can sometimes be attributed to improper step distance along the Y-Axis. In he latter case, some RIP software allows you to compensate by adjusting the step distance, between scan lines.
