    Tests developed and conducted by Epson under fluorescent light (indoor display condition) with glass mount. The data is calculated by Epsons accelerated test of prints on specialty media.
    Data is calculated using accelerated simulation of fading under indoor preservation conditions including fluorescent light indoor display. Temperature, humidity and some atmospheric gases may also affect the rate of fading. The estimated lightfastness period does not indicate the colour changing or the durability of the paper itself. Epson recommends that your prints be stored in a photo album (or plastic photo storage box) in acid free, archival sleeves commonly available from most camera shops.
