How long will my prints last displayed outside when printed from a GS6000?
Epson Stylus Pro GS6000
Durability and light fastness of prints when displayed outside
The Stylus Pro GS6000 is the first large format printer designed by Epson that features the advanced 8-colour solvent ink set, which delivers superb, long-lasting prints and perfect colours.
The longevity and light fastness of prints can vary depending on a number of factors:
The environment or location the print is stored in.
The media used to print onto.
The inks used to print with the GS6000.
How the print is stored, eg on display outdoors; in a photo album; in a frame etc.
Due to these factors, Epson cannot provide details of the exact longevity of a print. However, 3M Commercial Graphics and Avery Dennison are able to supply details of the longevity of prints when using their media. Both companies guarantee the quality, durability and longevity of the products they produce using the Epson Stylus Pro GS6000 and UltraChrome GS inks, which demonstrates their confidence in Epson.
