Printing on inkjet: best paper? inks?
on Dec 20, 2011 at 4:58:57 am

This is just for myself, at home, non-prof.
I print on a Canon MP560 Inkjet printer and I use the standard canon inks.
I use Kirkland (costco) photo paper.
These pictures fade FAST.
I know if I keep them in the dark, etc., they'll last longer, but that's not the point. This is just home use. I want them out on shelves or walls.
Is there any paper, ink, combo that will make them last any longer? I've looked for info online and find long, rambling, intricate, subjective studies. When I want them perfect, somebody else prints them. I just don't want these little personal shots to fade for a while.
Thanks, L.

I would take a look at a quality paper from Epson. See if they have anything that resists UV light, or has a longer fade life. I don't know that I would trust a lower grade brand like Kirkland.
