Multifunction printers pumping a revolutionary ink through their nozzles that'll create prints with an archival life of 100 years, versus standard inkjet photos that go the way of toilet paper after 15. And the ink costs half the price. Half?! This sounds like great news for those of us who have given up film in favor of digital!

Very cool! I always save the files of anything I print anyway, but that's still good news. :)

Exactly, if you still have the digital image, having your prints go to crap dosen't really matter. Still I like the fact that its cost half the amout compared to current ink jet printing.

Yep, I keep all of my digital images as well. But it is nice to be able to print them out. Makes sharing them off line much easier!

I'm one of those who've ditched film for digital, so this is great news. I can't wait to go find out more about it. I've seen some examples of lousy inks and paper for digital printing, so I'm happy that those might one day go the way of the dinosaur -- and for less, even.

Sounds great. I hope that more companies will develop long lasting inks.
