Use Canon OEM ink and quality paper. That's it.

Everything else is inferior or costly (hermetically sealed with UV protection museum glass) and still inferior to OEM inks under same conditions.

No spray varnish or even glass worth the effort? How long do you suppose oem canon ink would give satisfactory display results?

Canon OEM inks perform much better in regards to fading than any refill ink - by a wide margin, don't believe any claims of UV resistance and alike for refill inks. And the paper can make a rather big difference as well. And beyond that

You can never stop them from fading, you can only slow them down..

If you are interested to read more about fading performance, the wide performance variations by different inks, on different papers you may read this and subsequent postings and comments
