In our previous papers, we have shown how light, ozone, and humidity can affect the image stability of inkjet photographic prints. Previous attempts to measure the thermal dark fade of inkjet prints by the Arrhenius method have been confounded by dye migration. When tests are carried out at a constant, absolute humidity equivalent to 50% RH at 24°C (constant 13°C dew point), temperatures as high as 75°C can be utilized for many ink-media combinations without encountering significant dye migration. In this paper, we provide evidence for thermally induced changes to inkjet photographic prints, including fade, hue shift, and/or yellowing. Results will be discussed in the context of the Arrhenius relationship.

  • 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.
