If you print on instant-dry photo paper, your prints will fade rapidly. If you plan to display the prints for more than two weeks, you should laminate them to achieve longer life.

Prints on swellable coated papers will fade much less rapidly. However, lamination will increase the life of prints (depending on the type of lamination) with all paper types. For more information, consult your laminate provider.

I am experiencing the same issue. The response says "Prints on swellable coated papers will fade much less rapidly". What kind of longevity are we looking at? I was surprised to see significant fading after just a couple of months where I had been expecting many years of sustained print quality and permanence.

Also, please specify what "swellable coated papers" you recommend.
