All plus factors, but also note that inkjet printer ink seems to be
water soluable, and as a result, the print quality is significantly
degraded when the humidity is high. If you're printing in a place
without air conditioning in the summer in the upper midwest, or in
an even larger part of the year in the southeast, when the humidity
is up in the 90% range, inkjets get pretty dodgy. I know, I've got
one in my house.
