Why would you use an archival ink on non-archival paper? Seems to defeat the purpose of using them. Archival inks have a smaller gamut, generally and are more expensive.

There has been a lot of discussion about fading as a result of Epson's decision to use a dye-based ink for all its printers. From what I gather, dye-based ink is also more susciptable to bleeding on plain paper, and this has often been the sore spot for Epson printers. I have been looking hard for methods to improve my 740's plain paper output quality, and it struck me that if I use pigment-based ink in the printer, I might be able to get prints similar to those from Lexmark or HP printers (whose quality often attributed to their pigmented inks). It happens that archival inksets such as Mediastreet's Generations ink are pigment-based. Has anybody tried using archival inksets to print on plain paper? How are the results, in terms of amount of bleed, saturation, and color accuracy compared to OEM inks? Thanks in advance... Cheers, Pat - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
