A Comparison of Image Permanence and Print Durability Attributes for Commercial Digital Print Materials with Traditional Offset
Abstract:High-speed inkjet and electrophotographic printing presses have recently made inroads into traditional commercial printing applications, such as direct mail, magazines, catalogs, and books. Each of these applications has similar but somewhat differing requirements and expectations for image permanence and print durability. In this study, we compare representative print samples produced by both digital and analog printing technologies for their image permanence and print durability performance. We will also discuss these results in the context of specific market applications.

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.
