After it is laminated it is just about the same weight as the premium paper - and it doesn't fade orange either. I have a couple of A4 prints on PQGP that I laminated back in May (using a hot laminator from work - so I expected problems) that looked indistinguishable from reprints I made over 3 months later. Whether they last 10 years or more, I couldn't say, but they certainly last a lot longer than premium paper prints. -- Kennedy Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed; A lovely little thinker, but a bugger when he's pissed.
