Image Permanence of Ink Jet Print System for Portrait
Abstract:Thanks to the improved technology with high quality in high speed and to competitive prices of mega-pixel digital cameras and high resolution scanners, color ink jet printers have popularly filtered into our daily life. We expect that the color ink jet printers, both in professional and high amateur markets, will take an important role to pull the digital photographic industry.
With this background, Seiko Epson Corporation has developed the portrait printer “Gemini” system. With a set of 6 pigmented inks, this system enables us to print on ink jet media with high quality and with very good image permanence and to use them as commercial photographs.
In this report, I will explain the good stability of ink jet media printed by the Gemini system focusing especially on light and gas that are believed to be the more important factors than water, heat, humidity and plasticizer.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
