Definitely not the same ink, but I wouldn't doubt that it fades just as
easily.  Inkjet inks are formulated more for their mechanical properties
than for their durability.

However, there may be a spray coating that would help.  I don't know of
such a thing off the top of my head, but I know there are fixatives that
may have preservative properties.
