Smudge-Resistant Prints

The quick-drying formula allows prints to be handled immediately after printing. Many competitive dye-based printers require special paper for quick drying properties or require several minutes of drying time.

Water-Resistant Prints

Prints resist damage related to high levels of humidity, moisture and water spills on Epson Premium Photo Papers. Water spills on a Claria Ink print can be rubbed off without ruining the print. With many competitive prints, this isn't the case.

Scratch-Resistant Prints

Because Claria Hi-Definition Ink is a dye-based ink set where ink is absorbed into the paper coating, prints are resistant to scratches caused by handling. You can share your prints worry-free!

Fade-Resistant Prints

Preserve your memories with confidence, as Claria Ink prints have a dark storage rating over 200 years.*

* Print permanence ratings are based on accelerated testing of prints on specialty media, displayed indoors under glass or UV filter or stored in archival sleeves in album storage. Actual print stability will vary according to media, printed image, display conditions, light intensity, humidity, and atmospheric conditions. Epson does not guarantee longevity of prints. For maximum print life, display all prints under glass or UV filter or properly store them. See for details.
