Inkjet printing of photographs using both dye-based and pigmented inks has become the most popular form of output from digital camera files. In addition to desktop and wide-format applications, inkjet printing technology is now also being adopted for “dry” minilabs and by professional portrait and wedding photography studios. Various factors affecting both light-induced and thermally-induced yellowish stain formation in inkjet prints are described. Stain behavior for representative inkjet papers as well as for selected traditional chromogenic (“silver-halide”) color photographs are discussed. Using data obtained from high-intensity 35 klux tests, potential stain formation and fluorescent brightener activity loss reciprocity failures are described. Problems with the integration of light-induced and thermally-induced yellowing data in accelerated image stability tests are also discussed.

  • 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.
