I have been using the MIS archival inks for about three months now. At first I was very disapointed with the results. Over 100 prints made with every conceivable combination of adjustments in the printer driver and photoshop. Tried the inks on about 10 different papers with poor results. Started using EZCOLOR to generate profiles. Now I am very pleased with the results. The gamut is not quite what you get with the epson inks, but is quite acceptable. I get good results on epson paper and archival paper such as Concorde Rag. Some form of profiling is a must if you want to use archival inks.
