Sorry Woody,
There is no such animal (archival inks), yet. All computer inks are dyes.
Even IRIS (giclee) prints fade with time. There are commercial printers that
can use variations of chemicals that will last for longer periods of time.
However, these formulas are very $$$$. With time, I am sure this will dilemma
will dissipate. However until then, digital art is not archival. There was a
chart printed in a recent summer issue of "Art Calendar" magazine. (I can't
remember which issue.) I will try to find it around here. If I can, I will
post the chart.
