Abstract

The tests emulate a range of storage conditions by generating layers of printed inkjet test charts to determine what happens to prints during storage and over time. For the home user of photo-printers onto glossy media, storage conditions for printed photographs also has a relevance. When storing a collection of photographs, in a box, an album under plastic or open under glass how will these prints change in relation to their environment. We have also found that, over time, the whiteness of inkjet paper may change. We decided to measure the spectral reflectance of the paper and to ascertain whether changes of the paper’s whiteness can contribute to the acceleration of fading or colour difference. To increase the whiteness of special enhanced papers, optical brightener agents are used. Is there any impact of these brighteners on the performance of the paper? This paper was given at the Third International Conference on Preservation and Conservation Issues Related to Digital Printing and Digital Photography, Institute of Physics, London, 2006.
