I would suggest using a *copier* that fuses the pigmented toner on the
first pass. One archival quality test (sorry, I don't have the citation at
hand) consists in applying a certain type of adhesive tape to a certain
area of xeroxed text. You then pull the tape off and if none of the text
comes with it, your copier meets archival standards. For a given archival
quality paper, some copiers are more "archival" than others.
