    I have a 8 color Mimaki JV300-160. I have printed designs since 2016 on this machine and it seems that the red is fading to pink. I use oracal 3551 RA and 290 laminate. Prints before on the 4 color JV 33 are just fine and some of them are 8 years old. Has anyone else had this problem?

    It's probably the orange ink. It only lasts a few months outdoors compared to the other colors which last 3-5 years. Make profiles which only use the C, M, Y, K, Lc, Lm inks without using orange when you do outdoor signs.
