Know about your prints
“Every photograph is a memory…an object from the past…an object in the rearview mirror…of life.”
Epson SureColor SC-P9000 Printer
The SureColor SC-P9000 is the state-of-the-art equipment for Archival Printing which has revolutionized the whole concept of Color Printing. The photo printer has been developed with outstanding print quality as standard. Increased black density for better gradation, deeper blacks, and less graininess, is achieved through UltraChrome Pro 10 ink offering a wide gamut of colors and also offers quick color stability and high water resistance.
Digital reproductions printed on 100% acid free and lignin free, cotton based (in some cases, modern blend materials) papers and canvases using special pigmented inks are the most archival. Depending on handling and viewing conditions, a properly produced print can have an anticipated life span of 50 or more years
The prints are rolled and packed using butter paper and bubble wrap. It is then fed into the cardboard tube/core for packing. The tube is also packed with bubble wrap so that the core does not get wet due to various reasons.
