Canon finally released their official report on the longevity of their Lucia inks which are used in their pro level printers including my recently purchased iPF5000. The test was conducted by Wilhelm Imaging Research, an image testing company that provides contract testing to clients on the stability and preservation of traditional and digital color photographs and motion pictures. The company publishes brand name-specific permanence data for desktop and large-format inkjet printers and other digital printing devices. This report was long long overdue and very much anticipated by everyone in the industry since the permanence of inks and papers is so important when selling fine art photography. The great news is that the Lucia inks were rated to approximately 100+ years for colorfastness, meaning no fading or other degradation of the print. This means my customers can be free of any worries about the quality and permanence of my fine art prints.
