    Yeah I've read that.

    The interesting point for me was the life span of dye sublimation prints is
    only 6-7 years.

    Unfortunately it is not light which destroys an inkjet photo. It is agent in
    the atmosphere. If you store a photograph from an inkjet printer in a dark
    place and subject it to a draught from say; a kitchen, it will lose it's
    colour within months, some will lose it within weeks.

    The lifetime offered by printer makers is a fabrication of conditions,
    presumptions and guesses which saddly, never eventuate. If you want long
    life prints, don't use an inkjet printer.
