Lot of mis-truths in this thread, how about the new Epson that prints
directly to CDs, the ink doesn't soak into the plastic! Secondly
earlier Epsons did have water soluable ink but my Epson Stylus Photo
(a few years old now) uses a non water based ink, leastwise when
printed on paper the print is water proof.
