It should be clarified that one of the pros and cons of the Epson 2200 
(which I own) is that its inks ARE pigment-based, not dyes. Epson 
manufactures both types depending on which model of printer, but 
everyone should be aware that the 2200 uses pigment-based inks. The pro 
is the archival nature of the 2200's output; the con is a "bronzing" 
effect, especially on glossy papers.
