Giclée Inks are ...


Electric Paintbrush utilizes an ink set of four formulated light fast inks (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black, also known as CMYK) manufactured by Lyson Limited of the UK and distributed by i-Lab Corp. of Atkinson, N.H.

The testing of the inks was conducted by an independent facility, Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc. of Grinnell, IA. The results of the testing were then presented to the International Association of Fine Art Digital Printmakers in New York City.



The four Lyson inks were subject to an accelerated testing at 75 F at 60% RH while displayed under lighting of 450 lux for 12 hours. This testing indicated that the predicted display life for images printed on Somerset Velvet paper was 65 to 75 years before any noticeable fading is detected.


Question: Remember that costly painting you bought from that art dealer? The painting that is hanging on your living room wall by that famous artist. You know the artist I mean. Do you think that print will last 75 years before any noticeable fading? Just ask your art dealer. Then ask to see the independent testing information to support their answer.
