Step forward with the new Page Print

Effective July 1, Creative Memories is discontinuing the current Page Print and replacing it with the new and improved Page Print. This is the first step in Creative Memories’ in-house digital printing initiative designed to improve the quality of our digitally printed products.

With this change we are replacing a product that was produced on standard photographic paper with one that is digitally printed on high-quality, acid-free, lignin-free, buffered paper. To produce these new prints, we are taking advantage of the latest technology, which allows us to simulate a traditional photographic print on a high-speed digital printing press.

Page Print Light StabilityThe new Page Prints have three times the light stability of our previous traditional photographic prints, when tested using the latest ISO draft test methods. Dark stability is even better, with prints unaffected by air pollution and expected to last more than 100 years when stored in albums. The new Page Print is available with matte and glossy surfaces. Both surfaces are created with a clear toner that protects the Page Print from damage due to handling. The new Page Print resists damage from humidity, water and accidental spills.

Finally, digital printing has improved sharpness when compared to traditional photographic prints. And this increases the legibility of journaling and added text.

 With the new Page Print, your customers can easily create multiple copies of a single StoryBook page. They can also create an individual page to celebrate a special occasion. The opportunities are endless, and with Creative Memories they can be assured that they will have the highest quality Page Print available, produced using the latest technology.

The July/August Tech Notes column is also available as a PDF file at Tech Notes_200907&08.

    I have really been impressed with the CM digital albums I have made and seen from others (clients and consultants). Even images which are not of as high a quality as they should be to print well have turned out better than I have expected. Turnaround time on orders has been very quick also.
