    I have an Epson P800, and am preparing to make some prints for an exhibition, and hopefully sell some. I’m wondering about the longevity of the prints I make.

    I like the Epson Signature papers, particularly hot press bright and exhibition fiber. Also, I love Moab juniper baryta, though it’s pricy. Also have been trying some Red River papers which are decent and more affordable.

    Any links to forum posts or articles here about how long prints should last with the Epson P800 inks (not third party) and any of the above papers?

    Henry Wilhelm is the master of these tests.  He visited me about a month ago.  What a fun visit.  he’s running around with his color matter taking readings everywhere we go.

    I think you’ll find the Epson LKegacy line of papers to have great archival abilities.  I really like their Legacy Fiber.  That’s what I am using for my display prints now, without glass.
