Color prints made from digital files are not considered preservation quality and there are no standards for longevity regarding digital images. However, there are ways of creating long-lasting prints by understanding the materials employed and controlling the conditions where the print will be stored. This presentation will address 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 afterwards, the storage and display of the prints.
