My Gallery Work- Archival Prints

August 20, 2012~

I have recently been asked to display some of my photography at a gallery and thought I would share the following information for those wondering about the print longevity. My photographs are printed on the Epson Stylus Pro 7800 and utilize the Epson Ultrachrome K3 inks as well as the Fuji Film 270 Satin ink jet paper.

A brief explanation on the Epson ink follows>

Without being restricted to a few choices of media to achieve professional requirements for longevity, Epson UltraChrome K3 inks are designed to work as a system with Epson’s full range of professional media.  Epson UltraChrome K3 ink has improved print permanence characteristics that provide lightfastness ratings of up to 108 years for color and over 200 years for black and white under rigorous industry accepted display conditions*.  Epson UltraChrome K3 ink and Epson Genuine Media perform as a perfectly matched system that provides the industry’s best combination of quality output and longevity enabling the display and sales of prints to the most demanding clients.

I also found this information on the Digital Output website:

The Epson Stylus Pro 7880 wide format inkjet printer, which can
be added to any Fujifilm Frontier system, creates mounted poster prints up to
20×24 inches. “We’re successfully serving both the retail and professional lab
markets with this product line,” comments Tom Curly, director of marketing,
imaging division, Fujifilm U.S.A. The unit boasts eight color ink technology,
Epson UltraChrome K3 inks, featuring Vivid Magenta pigments. Fujifilm supplies
the complete line of inks and papers for the Epson Stylus Pro 7880, including
Fujifilm Inkjet Media Photo Paper Satin 270 and Fujifilm Inkjet Media Photo
Paper Glossy 240.

Stay tuned for additional updates this week and details about a limited edition collector print in the near future!
