A lot has been written about image permanence and stability of ink jet photo prints. This has been primarily due to the fact that many ink jet prints are not very stable nor are they durable. Light fastness, moisture sensitivity, pollution sensitivity and physical durability have been deficient compared to silver halide prints. This paper addresses these issues and the factors that affect the performance of ink jet products. It also describes studies on laminated ink jet prints in a search for optimum performance.
