Hello all,

I am trying to find out if archival inks exist for standard inkjet computer printers now on the market (e.g., Hewlett Packard, Compaq, etc.)?  In modernizing our herbarium, we would eventually like to generate specimen labels from our database and are exploring our options.  Hewlett-Packard claims their black inks are archival, but have any independent studies been published?

Thank you in advance for any help or guidance anyone could offer.
