With all of the other inkjet printers reducing the available recycled fiber for same grade paper we sure don't need another source of fiber that will contribute to the accumulating tonnage to be be down-cycled.

Also, I believe that nano particles can pass through human skin. Are there health risks associated with nano pigments?
