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 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
