Canon Pro-100 with Precision Colors Inks fading?
2

I usually make my prints and put them away but I made a print, a black and white one, on my Canon Pixma Pro-100 (which I've had for 2 years) and laid it on the dining room table and forgot about it. Came back to it today and it had noticeably faded. I know that dye printers fade faster than pigment but this is crazy! This is in indirect bright light. I made another one for comparison today and you can see the difference. Has anyone seen anything like this before? The paper was some cheap Kirkland (Costco) branded glossy paper that I bought a couple years ago but I can't believe even the cheapest papers would fade this fast. I am running a test where I printed on Red River Polar Matte and will see which one fades faster.
