The fading of inkjet imagery has been the subject of many studies. This study explores the differences between light and gas fading using a single dye based inkjet ink set. The influence of media type, printed colour and ink load are the primary variables explored. The correlation of the fading characteristics with ink coverage and penetration are also included.

Whilst this study focuses on one ink set as an example, a range of media has been examined in order to show the wide range of results that can be achieved. This illustrates the importance of the characteristics of the inkjet media in both light and gas fading behaviour.

The characteristics of light and gas fading have been investigated in isolation, but some consideration is also given to the more realistic case of real life imagery.
