bulk inks & archival quality

has anyone had experence with Echostore bulk pigmented inks
I am using an Epson 1400
cant get a reply from them on papers to use
wondering who makes the product and how it holds up over time
one problem I have encontered with the pigment inks and Epron ultra premium Glossy 5 star paper
after a few days a kind of haze- kind of like an over spray appears
it buffs off with a soft cloth and appears to be fine
but is this a reoccuring event
is there a pigmented or what ever ink I can buy in bulkthat is archival or museum quality
I am very new at this game could use some insight thanks

Re: bulk inks & archival quality

I have no experience with the particular company you indicate. However, the haze you are getting on the paper after printing may be due to the "type" of paper you are using.

Some papers are made for dye inks - they absorb into the paper surface and actually dye the paper. Other papers are made for pigment inks. They, too, allow for the ink to absorb into the paper, but much differently than the dye ink papers do.

I suggest getting the specs for the particular paper you're using and see if it is compatible with pigment inks... probably not since it sounds like some of the pigment is actually drying "on top" of the paper rather than being absorbed into it, which is causing the haze you see after the ink has thoroughly dried.

Hope this helps.
