Why choose dye-based ink cartridges?

Most inkjet printers on the market traditionally include dye-based inks. They are more economical than pigment based ink cartridges and are appreciated for their ability to produce vibrant, true to life color prints and photos. Dye-based inks are not waterproof and can be susceptible to smudging, with many prints tending to fade after 25 years.

Why choose pigment-based ink cartridges?

Pigmented-based ink offers a crisper finish and a quicker dry-time than dye-based ink. It is valued by professional photographers and graphic designers for its ability to print archival quality images and text. Pigment ink tends to resist water and UV light better than dye-based ink, and is able to resist fading for up to 200 years. It is often more expensive, and lacks dye ink’s brightness and broad color range.
