I used an 8 x 10 which I didn't care about: not a custom print, but a commercial enlargement. Fuji material, though that does not necessarily mean much. But even in the higher end, chemicals change throughout a batch, the batches of emulsion change, etc. All things being optimal, I would normally expect a properly-done negative ("C") print to survive longer than an Epson inkjet using manufacturer's inks. But sometimes we are surprised by reality... John Lasruk Toronto Canada - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
