I purchased a childrens book from booklab that was printed in 1993. For the
illustrations they used a Xerox 5775 digital color copier on Rives
lightweight paper. Color saturation is beautiful and soft. Although it has
not quite  been three years, there is absolutely no sign of fading.  By the
way Judy, How does the Canon stack up against the HP?  I like to hear.
