If fading of dye inks for your printer is your concern you may try the bottled Epson inks for the new Ecotank ET7700/7750 printer, a German computer magazine did a test with those together with the XP-960 Claria inks, and these ET 106 inks came out even slightly better in their exposure test, this slight difference may be related to the inks or slightly different ink levels of these printers. I started as well a test on these inks, and I can confirm that these inks perform as good as the Fujifilm DL inks which are equivalent to the Claria inks. No 3rd party ink I tested - a lot of those - could match the performance of the Fujifilm DL inks although they are advertised as ''UV resistant' or similar. And you are right that the type of paper has an impact onto the fading as well, the PE filmed RC (resin coated) papers typically let the inks perform better than cast coated papers.
