The image stability performance of various printing technologies and printers from many suppliers is improving, yet the ability to provide comparative information to a broad range of users with changing requirements remains elusive. This paper seeks to:

• analyze the ways that users want to print and use images

• define the likely environments that the prints will encounter

• assess the image stability of prints from a range of products and technologies

• match the image stability performance with the user expectations

• provide a proposal for a user friendly print stability rating system

The long term stability of images produced by the leading print technologies is defined by a number of sophisticated and complex accelerated tests. The results of these tests for a large range of print systems are reviewed in order to demonstrate the difficulty of reducing the results to an easily understandable form. A methodology for communicating the results in a way that can be useful to most levels of users is proposed.

  • 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.
