Printer ink fading experiment
On the wall beside my computer, I have a little calendar I printed out on my Epsom inkjet. It sits there all year in direct, but not harsh, sunlight.
Last year, I decided to try and experiment. Along the bottom, I printed a red bar. Then once it was on the wall, put a blob of Blu-tack on one end to shade the ink from the light.
As 2019 arrived and I print a new calendar, I remove the old one and it's protective blob.
Until I did this, I didn't think the ink had faded, but you can clearly see it has, and quite a bit. Interesting.
