my color work in 4x5 for HABS/HAER is scanned to about 60MB files and printed on fuji crystal. my communications with NARA indicate that the fuji crystal archive has the best longevity of any color printing process. i have my color work done by brian white at photovision in salem oregon, and their large-scale prints are extremely impressive. he has invested heavily over the past couple of years in the latest technology, and has worked very hard to ensure he has the best equipment and knowledge available - his firm does outstanding work, and i can heartily recommend them.
