Creating Long-Lasting Color Prints From Digital Files

 Presented by:  Northeast Document Conservation Center

Brief Description: Color prints made from digital files are not considered preservation quality. Currently there are no standards for longevity regarding digital images; however, there are ways of creating long-lasting prints. Understanding the materials employed and controlling the conditions where the print will be stored will help improve the preservation outlook.  This presentation addresses the three most important factors that affect the life of a digital print:  the quality of materials used, such as the colorant (dye vs. pigment) and paper; the combination of materials used; and the storage and display of prints.

Who should attend?

Anyone  interested in developing an understanding of the technical characteristics and preservation needs of digital prints are encouraged to participate.
