    Has anyone tried this? Will it help with fading? If not this, is there any other spray that will reduce digital print fading?
    Thanks

    I have found that no matter what I used or how I applied it, you can’t stop dye ink from fading, it does however slow it down for about a month, but after that, it is like you never coated the surface at all.

    The better alternative is to switch to pigment inks, if you can get a Pro 100 and a Pro 10 cheaply (Discounted) then you have the best of both worlds, one for vibrancy and the other for longevity, then you can Print Print Print.

    P.S. you can however achieve fairly decent longevity when you use both OEM dye ink and paper together, but don’t expect miracles, we all fade in the end...:th
