Conference Paper
Full-text available
Over the past decade, photography has evolved from traditional light-sensitive silver halide emulsions to a variety of digital technologies, including inkjet, dye sublimation, and electrophotography. The transition to digital photography has led many new products, including customized photo books and other gifts. The production of these products re...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Printing technology is changing from traditional silver halide based photographic printing to alternative digital printing methods. As this change takes place, image quality differences alter the appearance of the photographic print in subtle but definite ways. These differences are particularly noticeable when migrating from continuous tone printi...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Digital printing processes enable the economical production of photo books at a quantity of one. Unfortunately, digital printing does nothing to improve the creation process. The typical photo book project requires customers to complete their photo book prior to ordering. The customer cannot easily add pages, photos, or new information without reor...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Preservation of photo books extends beyond simply preserving the physical object Preservation requires understanding the photo book production process, which begins with taking digital photos, includes digital file creation, and extends to manufacturing the book in its final form. Unfortunately, the intermediate steps are often lost, with manufactu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The printing of identity cards differs significantly from other printing technologies in that the substrate is well-defined, generally PVC or polycarbonate, and relatively small, typically 2.125" x 3.370." Because the substrate is non-porous, the dyes and pigments used must penetrate into the substrate or be held in place by an adhesive or binder t...

Reproduction of Chinese text is inherently more difficult than the reproduction of Latin characters due to the complexity of Chinese characters. Contrast, resolution, and color registration are critical, and failure to maintain these factors rapidly leads to degradation of Chinese text quality. Analysis of a representative Chinese character illustr...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The use of PVC or vinyl was discussed at the Spring 2013 ISO meeting on image permanence and durability that was held in Copenhagen. Because vinyl is convenient and economical, manufacturers would like to use this material for photo books and other products. Currently, ISO standards prohibit this material, and in the interest of providing a complet...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
At this time, no ISO standards exist specifically for photo books. The best we can do is follow existing standards and then make modifications when required. At Creative Memories, we use ISO 11800 Requirements for binding materials and methods used in the manufacture of books whenever possible. This standard provides guidelines for methods and mate...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The future for photo books looks good. With the appropriate choice of materials and production processes, photo books will preserve digital photos. All that is needed is to define the relevant test methods and develop specific requirements. The result will be improved photo books that better meet customer needs, further accelerating growth within t...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Photo gifts include a far greater variety of materials than used in traditional photo finishing operations. Durability and image permanence play important roles in the quality of these products, which include photo books, poster, mugs, mouse pads, and other items. In some cases, traditional test methods may be modified to assess the quality of thes...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In photofinishing, digital fulfillment generally involves the mass customization of a wide variety of products, including photo books, posters, and digital canvases. The products expand the market for photofinishing and have their own set of challenges. Different combinations of substrates, inks, and protective coatings may produce similar products...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In the recent literature there has been much mention of longevity of digitally-generated prints. What is not always understood by consumers is that these numbers are usually the print display ratings which have very little to do with the album making industry. For this group of consumers, the most important stability parameters are album keeping an...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Many commercially available inkjet papers are formulated with acidic paper bases. This situation runs contrary to the general recommendation for acid-free papers in the scrapbook industry. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the reason for the prevalence of acidic papers may be due to the imaging industry’s reliance on light stability information when...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Mold will grow on photo albums and the enclosed photos when the albums are stored at relative humidities above about 60%. This problem is of particular concern in tropical environments where dehumidification and air conditioning are not readily available. We used environmental chambers at 20 and 80%relative humidity to simulate arid and tropical c...

We have characterized the effect of 1 ppm of ozone at 50 % RH and 23 ° C on dye-based and pigmented inkjet images, on chromogenic, and on silver black-and white images on resin coated paper in dark storage. Prints in albums were evaluated unprotected and in polyethylene page protectors (PP) and sleeves (S). In this work, we evaluated the effect of...

Enclosures and mounting materials greatly affect the stability of inkjet images both when stored in the dark and when exposed to light. Samples were printed on Creative Memories® inkjet paper with an Epson® Stylus Photo 780, 1270, or 2000P printer, allowed to dry for 24 h at room temperature, and then mounted on acid-free, lignin-free, buffered alb...
Article
Spectroscopic measurements of photothermographic systems at development temperatures show how Ag particles form during the course of the development process. In standard systems, development follows autocatalytic kinetics. Systems containing infectious developers exhibit more unusual kinetics which do not generally fit simple mathematical models. I...

We have measured ac conductivities and dielectric properties for silver stearate and for a silver soap mixture, which is predominantly silver behenate [AgO2C22H43]2. Excess fatty acid affects conductivity, thermal expansion and dielectric parameters of these samples. Conductivity increases accompanied by conductivity maxima occur at temperatures cl...
Article
We have carried out an arrested development study on model thermally developed photographic materials (TDPM) based on silver carboxylates. From both TEM and x-ray diffraction analysis of the media at various stages of development, we infer that (1) during initiation of development small, spheroidal silver(0) particles form; (2) over the course of t...
Article
An electron microscope study of the morphology of the silver particles forming in the image area from the photothermographic process shows that the shape and size of the silver crystals change depending on the method of preparation of the silver halide/silver fatty acid complex system. In the case of the in situ process, silver halide obtained by t...
Article
The results of an investigation of the sites of silver halide formation on the surface of silver carboxylate crystals, modeled by silver stearate and prepared by the standard in situ process used for thermally developed photographic materials, are reported. For the first time the structure of a silver halide/silver carboxylate interface has been cl...
Article
Two molecules of CO2 add to electrochemically reduced 9,10‐phenanthrenequinone (PAQ) in CH3CN/[nBu4N]BF4 to give the bis(carbonate), [PAQ-2CO2]^2-. In the absence of CO2, PAQ undergoes two reversible, one‐electron reductions at −0.65 and −1.44V vs. SCE in CH3CN. Addition of CO2 occurs at ∼ −0.7V vs. SCE with a rate constant of about 10^2 M ^−1s^−1....

Article
A set of previously unknown tricoordinate hypervalent pnictogen compounds, 10-Pn-3 ADPnO, has been synthesized. The chemistry of these systems has been studied. Reactions with alcohols, α-dicarbonyl compounds, halogens, transition metals, protic acids, and acetylenes are among the chemistry described. In general, it was found that 10-As-3 ADAsO and...
