hi, i have a project for an outside shop window , i am going to use colourfast matt vinyl i have a dye ink system and i know uv is best for outside, so i did a test print on some random image i found on the web, it has a lot of black in the image and after a few days outside these are the results, is there any setting to stop this at all?20190607_132711.jpgvader green.jpg

If you don't want to use another technology (uv or latex printing), try to laminate it with UV overlaminate...and again check results...may be it wil slow down the fading process...

Yeah, but these inks are for indoor in the shadow and lights only 🙂 the sun is destroying it fast...
