For your further information, the following is an abbreviated excerpt from 
the SPNHC list server, NHCOLL regarding a source for archival-quality 

"Phillip's Process Corp.'s black actinic ink is apparently a very long-lived 
magnesium dioxide formulation (will survive a nuclear blast!). It's available 
through University Products. No really good archival reds seem to be 
available; we've had significant fading of red inks used in the past 50 
years, even when stored in darkness.  Phillip's (in Rochester, NY) will 
make an ochre or a yellow titanium-based archival ink.  And interestingly, 
they also make (or used to) an archival invisible ink.

As mentioned in a previous email University Products offers archival quality
materials such as Resistall. Contact: <info at>
