The combination of the 2008 new Genuine Canon dye inks, FINE print head, and "Photo Paper Plus Glossy II PP-201", "Photo Paper Pro II PR-201" or "Photo Paper Pro Platinum PT-101" resists fading for approx. 30-years when displayed in a glass frame in a typical indoor space (estimating 500lux/ 10hours per day) without direct sunlight.*
*About light fastness:
Criteria for estimation
Estimated light fastness is made under the following test conditions.
Light source: White fluorescent light 70,000lux; Temperature: 24°C; Humidity: 60% RH; A 2-mm thick glass is placed on the sample during accelerated testing.
Criteria for estimation of print longevity shown above
Estimates for image permanence are made using the Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc. endpoint criteria “WIR Visually-Weighted Endpoint Criteria Set v3.0” as follows; Samples are printed with an optical density of 1.0 and 0.6 (each black, cyan, magenta, yellow) by default printer driver setting of each media. The point where monochromatic/ reflective optical density shows loss of 20-35% (figure set respectively for each color, starting density of 1.0 and 0.6). The point where the difference in color balance of yellow, magenta and cyan (each component in composite black) reaches 12-18%.
