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 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.
