Rafe, I have a print from my EX (Epson Ink, Epson Photo Paper - previous version) under glass on my desk. I placed it there in November 1998 ... approx. 8 months ago. It's placed in a position that receives the full blast of desk light when I angle it away from my monitor. And yes, it has faded considerably, mostly in the magentas ... it's a ghost of its former self. This wasn't a scientific test, just happenstance, but suggests that glass doesn't help ... at least not in extreme circumstances.

My question is, how does the presence of glass change things? FWIW: Prints from my ESC-600 and Photo-700, when displayed under glass, do not show observable fading over a matter of several months. Of course, this "proves" nothing... rafe b. - Please: Stay on topic. Trim quoted messages. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions. - Please: Stay on topic.
