Will my photographs fade?

All photographs will fade and discolor to some extent over time. Taking steps to enhance the longevity of a photo is called archival preparation. To this end, we process color prints using Fuji Crystal Archive paper, tested to be the most permanent color paper on the market today. These prints should last 60 years or more when on display without significant loss of quality.

Very dry conditions cause prints to curl, and humid conditions result in mould and mildew. Exposure to light—especially direct sunlight—results in fading (colour photographs are more sensitive than black-and-white ones).

Improper framing techniques can cause problems: matting that is not acid- and lignin-free can damage photos; masking tape and Scotch tape can discolour and/or stain prints; unmatted photos can be damaged or get permanently stuck to the glass in frames, especially if the glass is sprayed with liquid cleaners (many of which are corrosive and will stain or fade photos).
