  • Non-OEM printer inks fade fast!

    For all you photographers that print out your photos, you may want to investigate light and dark fade on the inks and papers you use. While it is common practice to replace the expensive ink cartridges with refills and low-cost aftermarket cartridges, if you are printing your images for professional or long term use you may want to check out this article (it starts on the right hand side of the page):
    http://www.wilhelm-research.com/hardcopy/hardcopy.html

    The chart on page 6 is very eye-opening.

    You may also want to check out the book download at the Wilhelm Research site and read all about the history if image fading and film conservation.

    They also have reviews of the printers/inks/papers out there on the market for your review.

        Interesting, even though I never print pictures myself, I usually use Pixum.

          I've got a client that designed his own logo and simply wanted me to put it together. He only drew the outline and told me what colors to use. But I'm not sure if I can send this to him. Should I tell...

          Thanks for your feedback!
          I understand what you are saying. I just think i might be a monomaniac. I have no interest in building in other forms of graphic design. I will probably have a bad time....

          This is what I am scared of since the country I live in does not respect design that much. You can rarely make a living out...
