Proprietary dyes help ensure that HP Vivera Inks deliver exceptional light fade resistance while maintaining a large color gamut. The use of dyes, rather than pigments, also enables HP Vivera Inks to provide an exceptionally smooth, uniformly high-gloss finish on glossy photo papers.

Exceptional ink purity means excellent photos and prints, every time
Ink impurities can lead to numerous types of failures in inkjet printing systems, dragging down image quality and printer reliability. HP achieves exceptional purity with HP Vivera Inks by tightly controlling the quality and composition of each ingredient, by putting dyes through a number of purification steps and by using a proprietary process to fill each cartridge.

Low-colorant inks produce natural-looking skin tones
State-of-the-art printing systems make use of six or more inks, usually combining dark and light photo inks. The simplest approach to designing light photo inks is to dilute an existing dark ink, but dilution can significantly reduce the fade resistance of a given colorant. HP designs light photo inks from the ground up with dyes that provide both excellent light-fade resistance and vibrant color, even when diluted.
