At our tour of Nations Photo last week (which was awesome!) we brought up the issue of whether prints that Nations Photo mounts for you (on styrene, matboard, gator board, etc.) are considered archival quality (i.e. will not fade in our lifetime).
The Nations product manager assured us that even when mounted with adhesive on the back, the prints are archival and will not fade.
They do have a product that is a print mounted behind acrylic, which means the adhesive is on the front; for that case she could not answer whether it was guaranteed not to fade.
And thanks to Emily for arranging a terrific tour!
