Pigment Inkjet Printers

If your goal is long term print display or maximum possible print life, pigment inks are necessary. Pigment colorants are typically more stable than dye colorant over time. This stability comes at some price; Pigment inks tend to reproduce a smaller color gamut verses dye ink. In addition, pigment ink prints are more prone to handling damage, especially with matte and fine art media.

Dye Inkjet Printers

Dye based printers are designed for best possible color saturation and paper compatibility. While modern dye inks are remarkably fade resistant, you would not count on this technology if long-term print display is your goal. Dye printers are a great choice when print speed, broad paper compatibility, and bold color critical. They are quite popular for note card printing as well as graphic arts and business needs.
