    I am sure many of us have had issues or seem problems with images reproduced, be they photographs or what ever. I have had them disappear when I used a heat press and di not know at the time, about heat sensitive papers???
    So thats my admission of ignorance.
    In Australia we wrote a paper many years ago and need to update it, I am seeking other publications to see if we can improve our tome.
    Thanks in advance.

    The PPFA Guidelines Task Force has talked about researching and developing guidelines for framing photographs and digital images. Maybe that ought to be their next project.

    In the meantime, Chris Paschke's articles and books on mounting may provide the best information available.

    If you call Kodak, they will tell you. Fuji would not tell us, but Kodak told us.

    One real problem is the matching of inks and papers. Wrong combination and you start losing the image quickly.
    Cheap inks usually don't hold up as well as the makers Photo Inks. Aftermarket inksets are usually lower quality though some such as Cone inks are even better. Put top quality ink on cheezy & cheap paper and you are in trouble.

    Getting information from the client as to the printer inkset and paper can be nearly impossible at times.
