\begin opinion
Seems like the best method for very long term storage in theory is ion

More practical methods include the following:
I have also heard that using archival quality ink in a retrofitted ink
jet printer printed on acid-free paper may work for reasonable amounts
of time. The plastic ink particles in laser toner are very susceptible
to environmental factors.

I know that for land surveys that archival ink using a pen plotter on
vellum is "best".
