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.

Eligible Certified Archivists (CAs) earn 1 Archival Recertification Credit (ARC) through The Academy of Certified Archivists.

Who should attend?

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