Or will they fade especially if exposed to sunshine?

Does this also apply to shop/factory produced colour photos?

some are, some aren't click here
you have to research the different types of ink.

Are colour laser printers the answer then?

If you keep the photos on your computer or a CD or DVD, you can always make fresh copies. Any colour will eventually fade in light, it always happens with curtains, or furniture in the light of a window.

Colour Laser is what I use, they are Waterproof, but how long pictures last I do not know. But even a Normal Film Photo Print will fade if left in the light

Mine is a Epson Acculaser 1100

that looks expensive to operate and probably not for personal use?
