Our Idea called DURABrite Ink

New DURABrite ink from Epson means beauty doesn't have to fade.

It's a new pigment-based ink with a unique resin layer. Prints made with conventional inks, when mounted on an unprotected surface, are likely to fade within months from exposure to fluorescent light, ultraviolet rays or ozone. Our new DURABrite ink is made from insoluble particles of resin-coated pigment. The result is images that are fade-resistant and water-resistant. In fact, your prints will keep their original colors for up to eighty years under normal light, and up to thirty years with exposure to ozone.*

DURABrite ink gives long lasting power to everything printed with Epson's photo printers; from ordinary text document to highly-detailed photographs.
