*Print permanence ratings are based on the accelerated testing method of prints on specialty media, those displayed indoors and under glass. Actual print stability may vary according to the printer, media, printed image, display conditions, light intensity, humidity, and atmospheric conditions. Epson does not guarantee the longevity of prints. For maximum print life, display all prints under glass or lamination, or store them properly.
