>Well there is no reason to use S041141 again. I wonder if Epson is just >getting rid of old stock of greeting cards paper etc. The longevity is of course based on the ink you're using. If you are using any of Epson's own dye based inks, then the fading may not be a problem. On most Epson paper products, the packaging states which printers (and by that they mean inks used by those printers) the paper is meant to work with. I've been using a third party ink set (WeInk) in a CIS, and while I have no fading problems on HWM or water color stocks, on the Greeting Card (aka Glossy Photo Paper) there is a problem in high ozone environments. I don't live in such a location, but friends in Florida who I sent photos to report the images turn pink in less than two months. I suggest you do a window test, or if you know someone in Florida you can send a print to.... By the way, the Greeting Card stock is scored for folding and has tear off edges, so Epson isn't clearing out inventory. The Greeting Card paper is actually great for those ephemeral products - xmas cards or the occasional birthday card. William - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
