Ink lightfastness ratings are based on accelerated testing of prints on specialty media, displayed indoors, under glass or UV plex. Actual print stability will vary according to media,
printed image, display conditions, light intensity, humidity, and atmospheric conditions. Epson does guarantee longevity of prints. For maximum print life, display all prints under
glass, UV plex, lamination or properly store them. See www.wilhelm-research.com for details.
