  • 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 gave up on both regular television and cable television years ago. I have no interest in spectator sports, so that's not an issue for me. It likely won't fit with what you're after, but for me a fiber...
