I was talking to a
high end ink jet salesman who sold both HP and Epson (and other) wide format
machines. He said that the HP machine has the better Gamut in their UV
resistant inks, than the Epson in their pigmented archival
thing was that he kept calling them "UV resistant inks", as do HP, and
when I asked if he meant pigmented inks, he hinted that it was a blend of dyes
and pigments - for greater gamut - and not 100% pigmented.
Now this may
not be a problem (some dyes do last an awful long time) and could even be a
very clever compromise situation, but it is not a widely publicised
situation. What we now need is
for Wilhelm Imaging to come out with their data on HP vs. Epson archive life,
and then (dye or pigment or mix) we can get an accurate
hope this si
not too o/t?
