This study was undertaken to quantify the tendency of modern, digitally printed photographs and documents to adhere to each other or adjacent surfaces in storage. It has long been known that the gelatin binder used in traditional photographic prints can stick to glass in framing packages as well as to many types of plastic sheeting used in storage enclosures. This has typically been attributed to exposure of the materials to high humidity such as found in tropical climates. In this test, a variety of digital print types were incubated at 30°C and 90% RH for seven days and then visually assessed for adherence to polyester, polypropylene, and polyvinyl chloride films; envelope paper; typical framing glass; and both the face and reverse sides of prints of the same type. All digital prints tested were less likely to block or ferrotype than traditional color photographic prints.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
