There are many studies on the production of conductive ink. In this study, mixtures of 2–40 nm silver nanoparticles with a minimum shelf life of 3–4 months were prepared with polyvinyl alcohol and polyaniline. The shelf life of many conductive inks known in the literature cannot be mentioned. We measured the resistance of the films formed on the surface. In the study, we characterized the materials via FTIR, SEM, EDX, and Zetasizer analyzes. The current–voltage measurement of the films was performed by the two-point method. Compared to the literature, we achieved to reach a resistance level of 10–6 Ω cm. Moreover, the solutions we produce can be preserved for one year at room temperature without collapse or deterioration. This also enables conductive ink production, which is very suitable for industrial production.
