One thing people should note is that the toner used in copies is not ink, but a particulant which is electrostaticaly fused/bonded to the paper. As such, it should not fade as many inks will.
Toner can however offset to adjacent pages under the right conditions, such as pressure, heat. Not all do, but I have several examples here which have.
