The Epson OEM inks fade over time, and to make the problem worse, the magenta fades at a faster rate than the other colors. If you used true quad tone black inks I do not think you would have any problem. Epson inks are prone to fading, particularly the magenta. If you are doing B&W I would buy quad tone black inks.
