At Mile High we originally were selling only to large format print applications, which means these prints were going in a variety of places, non of them being in dimly lit rooms. We have found that the worst enemy of dye based inks (which Epson, Illford and Lysonic inks all are) are chemicals. Even fumes can degregate the ink drastically. We had one print that all the cyan and magenta disappeared. We finally found out that this print was shipped FedEx and the box was sitting close to the exhaust of a jet engine while being loaded. Other identical prints were sent via mail and were fine. Cleaning chemicals and fumes will attack the ink also we had a banner ruined, it was hanging in the atrium of an office building, the fumes from the cleaning solutions used faded the ink quite rapidly. So the moral to the story is protection for any print printed with dye based ink is a good idea, unless it is not going to be exposed to sunlit or any chemicals at all (museum conditions) Have a colorful day Judy Mile High Engineering Supply, your inkjet specialists 1-800-666-6602 - Please: Stay on topic.
