When I replace it, I'm going to look at Epsons, though, because I have been told that their prints are waterproof! Hey - I live in hurricane country! LOL!
I tested the 'waterproof'-ability of my Epson prints. I printed signs for the boys bikes for a pirate parade then took one of them, stapled it to a stick, stuck in the ground in front of our house and left it there for 10 days. I was amazed! The paper became tattered, but through rain & wind, the colors did not run!
I have an Epson Stylus CX7800 for 8.5x11 or smaller. I use a Canon S9000 for 12 x 12. We also have a Canon iP5000 and a HP Deskjet 950C. In the basement there are 2 or 3 others, but they are under the spiderwebs and I'm not going near them!
