Four Months out Test Results

Took a while, but I decided to re-do the whole card now that the
Formulabs samples have come in. Also, since some on here thought
it was important, I did a card on Epson PGPP as well as plain paper
cardstock. These samples have dried for about 5 hours. I'll fade
them on the dashboard for as long as it takes and post those
results in a few months.

The rightmost column bears some explanation. From top to bottom it
WJ6073 - the Asian market BCI-6M, redder than the standard WJ6053
WJ688 - the HP14 magenta, first thing they sent when I asked for
a "less blue" 6053
50/50 mix of WJ6053 with WJ6073 - an attempt to come even closer to
WJ1008 - Image Specialists standard BCI-6 black, same as the square
one to to the left
WJ1109 - The dark black
CAN-I960-DD - MIS "double density" black

Here are the results - faded colors are the squares in the lower right of each swatch.
