As ink jet ink and media technologies continue to evolve the issues of image stability in the short term and image permanence in the long term become more complex. With the widening availability and variety of pigmented and dye based ink jet inks and new media incorporating micro or nano porous ink jet coatings, new performance trade offs are being experienced by customers who buy and use these products. This paper will explore some of these trade offs, the reasons for some of these differences, their importance in end use applications and the potential for overcoming the resulting deficiencies with continued product development.
