Tests developed and conducted by Epson under fluorescent light (indoor display condition) with glass mount. The data is calculated by Epson's 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.

Warning to Epson printer owners. Many well known third party companies claim their inkjet printing papers are compatible with all Epson inkjet printers. Epson has reports from many customers who have used third party paper and have been very disappointed with the results. When the same customers have changed to genuine Epson paper, they have been amazed and pleased with the colour and quality of their prints. Epson recommends that you do not use any non genuine printing papers if you want to get the best results from your Epson printer. Epson printers are very carefully tuned to ensure Epson inks and Epson's patented MicroPiezo printhead produce the best quality prints using carefully selected Epson paper.

All other brands of printing papers are not wholly compatible with the printer.
