Schwarz Michael, One might also ask why Epson claimed 200 years on their Epson Archival Matte paper & pigment ink combo where it clearly was not, especially since the EAM contains optical brighteners. No way the brighteners will last 200 years, or even 100! So, I am always suspect of Epson claims. Harvey Ferdschneider partner, SKID Photography, NYC - Turn off HTML mail features.
