  Here is a good link that discusses Lyson Print Guard Archival spray: http://www.inkjetart.com/lyson_spray.html

The short answer seems to be that the archival pigment inks used by certain Epson printers (including the 2200) will benefit from such sprays, but not nearly as much as dye-based prints made with Epson and other inkjet printers.

The best protection for prints is proper matting and framing using UV glass, and then keeping the print out of direct sunlight or fluorescent lighting (incandescent lighting is preferred).
