    I recently purchased a pack of Konica inkjet paper (due to its price)
    instead of my normal choice, Canon Photopaper Pro (PR101). I used it with
    my Canon I950 and achieved as good a result colour wise etc as the Canon
    paper. Has anybody any experience with the longevity of the Konica QP
    Premium Photo Glossy when used in a display (framed under glass) situation?
    I have had Canon paper on display for some years now with no discernable
    degradation. However, the Canon paper is getting pricey by comparison.

    I have a few A3 and A4 framed prints on the walls for over 5 years now
    and I see no noticeable colour degradation/shift.
    I guess it's more or less the same QP paper, if maybe an earlier version,
    but since I have an original packing, here's what it says on the pack:
    Konica Photo IJ Paper QP / Premium Quality Coated Paper / Heavy Weight
    code: KJP-A3-GH-20-QP-IJ.
    I believe at the time (Q3-4, 1999) I was using Epson Photo 1270, IIRC.

    Another paper you might try is the ilford "classic" paper. I'm using their
    classic pearl paper and it's suposed to work well with dye based printers
    as far as longevity and the prints look really nice on it.Their smooth
    paper is made more to work with the pigment inks.
