Leon: I believe you're referring to one of my previous answers. Yes I still use XG inks with a variety of papers, including XG Gloss, Reflections, Satine, and Zyphyre. I do not display the Reflections, and when I finish what I have probably will not reorder. XG gloss images have been framed and hung in a sun-lit room since May, with no observable shift of any kind. Also have a Somerset Enhanced and Concorde Rag print framed and hung in the same room. The Concorde shows no shift, but I'm not sure about the Somerset Enhanced. I did not put away a control print, but to my memory's eye it appears that there may be a lessening in intensity of the red tones. Not sure however and will have to delay judgement on that. So, all in all I am satisfied. By the way, Satine is sold as a competitor to Somerset and I like it better to work with. Have yet to test its stability. Remember, however, that I am using the 4-ink 3000 and don't have to contend with the diluted magenta and cyan. The dilutions complicate things.
