RE: archival digital photos

Hi Amanda,
First of all, there are archival inks; which are really pigments not dyes.
These give very long lasting results. Secondly, Epson has a line of
professional high resolution printers that produce large format prints.

Good luck with your search.

Subject: archival digital photos

I need an expert out there...
I have been researching the best papers, inks,
printers etc. to use for printing photos I have
manipulated in photoshop. While I realize all photos
are fragile and have a somewhat limited life
expectancy, does anyone know of or have you used a
particularly good product?
Is anyone familiar with using a spray of some type to
extend the life of the image?
These questions are related to my own work at this
time, but I am seriously considering going all digital
in my photo program at school in the interest of cost
and what the students will learn to do that they can
use after they graduate since it is likely few of them
will have access to darkrooms.

Thanks for your help
