Here's my experience with Epson ink fading: Last May I printed a dozen 8x11 prints on my 740 (4-colour) printer using Epson Photo Paper and OEM ink, matted them (no glass), and hung them on the walls of my shaded little cottage. In less than two months they had faded badly - even the blacks had gone green. It was a hot, humid summer and I was looking after two cats, whose litter box always seemed to give off traces of ammonia. I reprinted and rehung the pictures in July, the cats left in August, and now, 7 months later, the prints are still intact. Are cats dangerous to the health of naked Epson prints, or was it the lower temperature and humidity of the fall and winter, or was it because the new prints were done on Epson Improved Photo Paper? Too many factors to keep track of. Incidentally, I have seen no evidence of fading in Epson prints stored loose in file folders in the dark for up to 3 years, but that's not very long.
