I cannot concur with your statement - the ink in connection with a particular paper type defines the actual fade performance , with quite some influence of the paper as well, please see my postingPapers have little to do with it.
Aardenburg Imaging test results show a wide variance for the fading performance of Epson and Canon pigment inks as well depending on the paper as tested. A simple number - e.g. 1 year in the sun does not describe the actual situation.Pigment inks are good for a year in direct sun
Sir, you could not be more wrong it you tried.Fading is more prevalent with dye ink than pigment ink. Papers have little to do with it. Pigment inks are good for a year in direct sun with little or no fade. Keep dye based prints in the dark or they will fade away...Eastman Kodak dye transfer prints especially!
