Re: Prints stored badly faded badly...

Light is only one factor that effects color fading.

Dye inks can "out gas" changing color left on paper.

Temperature is a big factor for out gasing. Higher the temperature faster it will happen.

Paper can yellow, its OBAs out gas.

Inks (dye and pigment) can react with other airborne chemicals. Temperature is again a factor.

As you see, light is only one of many factors.
