TORONTO, March 22 /CNW Telbec/ - Life is full of wonderful moments and great memories that we wish to relive and preserve. Consumers demand permanence from digital prints to preserve pictures and family album for the next generation. To keep your digital prints for more than 100 years, you need to print your digital files on quality photographic paper.
Little thought is often given as to 'how' the prints are produced, and therefore consumers have the same high expectations as they had for prints made from film. With the growth in digital photography, the advent of Internet image sharing, people are printing their photos at home. But many digital-photo enthusiasts are seeing their homemade digital prints fade rapidly. That's because the photos are made using general-purpose ink jet printers and printing products not designed for color permanence. Some of the cheaper dye-sub papers were assessed to last just two or three years, while the worst performer in the test managed a mere 4 months.
Image fading is a serious problem when you are printing memories and building a collection of family pictures for the next generation. A study of 4"x 6" prints by Wilhelm Imaging Research(xx) discovered that there can be a colossal 200 times difference in the longevity of a photographic print, depending on how the print was produced. To provide Canadians with the best possible print longevity, Kwikpix.ca is making Fuji Crystal Archive photographic prints.
Beginning today, and until April 25th, Kwikpix.ca is presenting its "Spring 2010 Image Preservation initiative" reducing prices for printing 4"x 6" prints to 8 cents*, and for 5"x 7" prints at 10 cents*.
