Which cartridge combination are you using?

If you are using the 57&58 cartridge combination on the HP premium or premium plus papers you should be okay. All bets are off with the everyday paper. Check out this link on the difference the photo cartridge has on the fade resistance (this applies to the regular 57 and 58 cartridges -not the newer Vivera inks). The current version of premium offers the same fade resistance as the premium plus.


I think the everyday paper is culprit. Try the water torture test on part of the faded prints to see if they are swellable polymer or mcro-porous.
