Richard: I would just like to point out that the use of "Rives BFK" & Epson papers with the diluted Archiva ink in your 1160, will not give you much more that double the life of the Epson ink. Would highly recommend you use the Ilford papers, XG's UltraGloss, for maximum life--up to 50 Wilhelm years. The special "ink receptor" coatings on these papers combined with these inks, and our Wide Spectrum Inks, give them the "near archival" abilities. +++++++++++++++++++++++++ John Nollendorfs Lincoln Ink & Paper, Inc. http://www.lincolninks.com/ (402) 477-6265 - Turn off HTML mail features.
