My original note seems to have got lost. So this is a repeat. Apologies for duplication if the original turns up. The BJP has set up what it calls a 'real-life inkjet fading trial' which entails comparing the output of the Lexmark 5700-series printer and an Epson EX using a variety of inks and papers. For each of the printers two sets of eight prints are ouput. One set is put on open display while the other is kept in dark storage. The two pairs are reunited each month, photographed onto film and compared. Last weeks issue of BJP reported the results after one month of the test. It suggested that Lexmark prints had showed no deterioration; Epson prints made using Epson materials also showed no change. However, when the Epson printer was used with Lysonic inks, especially in conjunction with Lyson 'art' papers, fading was apparent. It argued that after just two weeks there was a marked difference between the displayed and dark stored prints output using Lysonic inks on Lyson 310gsm Fine Art paper. After a further two weeks the difference between that two sets of prints had intensified. In addition there were now slight differences between prints made on Lyson 285 Fine Art paper using both Lysonic inks and Epson inks. There was also a very slight shift apparent on Epson Photo paper printed with Lysonic inks. The same paper printed using Epson inks showed no image shift. If you want I can list all the inks and papers used in the test. Phil - Please: Stay on topic. Trim quoted messages. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
