Definitions for "Archival Ink"
Keywords:  pictureframes, epson, ink, ious, gamut
Inks used in fine art reproduction that have been optimized for permanence and maximum color gamut.
Long-lasting dye ink that will not fade or smear. Even when you apply water colors after stamping, it will not bleed. Also ideal for documents you don't expect to see again for many years, such as IOUs from unwanted relatives (see above).
These advanced pigments last a lifetime. The Epson printers at use only archival inks to delight our most selective customers.
