Epson Printers & Archival Inks



Regarding the inks for the Epson - they are pigment-based inksets rather
than dye-based inks. Its possible they may last 200 years. There is an
article in the NY Times, Sunday, March 25, 2001, Arts & Leisure, page 39 on
the inkjet -printers and their effect on the quality of Photographs  "Making
Each Detail More Real than Real " by Vicki Goldberg.  These printers are
changing the value of full color photographic prints which previous to this
technology had a much shorter life span.

A professional photographer I work with informed me of the abilities of the
Epson 1270 and higher priced models  -  I just got a 1270 but haven't had a
chance to try it out yet. For high resolution color images the printer
drinks up the cartridges - but I heard that you can buy them through PC
Connection at a lower price.  I don't have a phone # yet but I believe they
are located at 2870 Old State Rd Rte 73, Wilmington, OH  45177.
