Hey, if Faith picks one up, I had better follow suit. ;)

A bit surprised that I got hit with sales tax. Come to find that James incorporated in California but runs his studio in Colorado. Go figure. So my total was $227.61 after tax and shipping.

This will be worth every penny.

Pigment based inks have better fade resistance vs dye based inks due to the nature of the colourant. Pigment based inks are inks where the colourant is a solid mineral that was mined out of the ground, and ground up into a fine powder. Basically you're putting tiny minerals on top of the paper and they don't really go anywhere. Dye based inks are chemicals that slowly react,break-down and will fade over time.

Cheap inks use less colourants in the actual ink. That's why your instruction manual for your printer that says "always use GENUINE Canon inks." Because the cheaper refills are junk and the ink will fade in months. Same goes for the paste-type printing ink or acrylic/oil inks used in original artwork. The more expensive inks contain more pigments in their ink recipe, along with the other additives, solvents and vehicles.

I think the printer that Pressure Printing is using incorporates a wax type of inking system. Meaning the inks are solid blocks of coloured wax (in CMYK) which are then melted into a liquid as needed and then it gets sprayed onto the substrate just like a dye-based inkjet printer. OR the answer could be more simple in that high-end large format printers (Epson; HP) offer a more expensive ink set that offers an ink recipe using pigments vs standard at-home dyes.

I've seen giant barrels of ink being used on a 60" Epson printer. Yeah it prints 60" wide and almost infinity length on a variety of materials and they just used oil drums worth of ink.
