[BKARTS] fading of inkjet printed fabric

dye (I use Canon S800 dye based inkjet printer). The only concern I
have is color fading in the long term. Has anyone found any study on
this problem?

permanent ink (pigment base) has tried this technique. How is the
It seems to me this becomes a question for textile people. According to
my knowledge, they (textile people) replace cardrige ink with dye,
after printing, the fabric has to be steamed. However, it is still a
mystery to me.
Any information will be appreciated.
