    Hi I have requests for prints of my paintings
    Can you advise if Canon ip4200 printer inks are lightfast and have a decent lifetime.

    Thanks

    From Canon:
    Mind you, this is only with genuine Canon papers and ink. Any other combinations won't be a guarantee they'll last 100 years.

    But note that is for stoage in total darkness, in an album.

    As a displayed print it would be hard to get a lifetime figure as the light it is exposed to would differ so much from user to user.

    It certainly would not be anywhere near the darkness figure I suspect!
