The worst type of print for fading in the sun is an old inkjet print made on a home printer. Cheap ink is subject to heavy faded and in just a few years exposed to the sun, a photo can be ruined.
Any reprints should be made on Fuji Chrystal Archive paper with 100-year fade resistance. See my print pricing guide for choosing your prints.
