FEATURES AND USES
emit-ted through two Fuji Safelight Filters No. 103A
(or Wratten Safelight Filters No. 13) in a 10-watt
tungsten lamp safelight located at least 1 meter from
the work area.
Safelight filters fade with extended use and need
regular checking. Replace when paper fogging is
detected.
Exposed paper is susceptible to safelight-induced
sensitivity increases in the exposed area. For this
reason, exposed paper should be subjected as little
as possible to safelight illumination.
FUJICOLOR CRYSTAL ARCHIVE PAPER SUPREME
<NEW> is a silver halide color paper designed to
produce high-image-quality color prints on both analog
and digital printers. In addition to the many superb
features of the current FUJICOLOR CRYSTAL
ARCHIVE PAPER SUPREME, this new paper
incorporates new silver halide emulsion technology,
coupler technology and layer design technology to
deliver enhanced color reproduction, white purity,
image stability and handling. Furthermore, when used
in conjunction with the newly developed digital minilab
Frontier 570, it enables the realization of super-fast
processing, resulting in a dramatic improvement in
productivity.

The higher the temperature and humidity, the more
paper, whether unused, unexposed or exposed, is
susceptible to adverse changes in speed, color
balance, physical characteristics and other
properties. Unprocessed paper is best stored at low
temperatures. Specifically, the following conditions
should be used for paper storage.
Short-term storage: Store in a cool and dark
location, away from direct sunlight or high
tem-perature and humidity
Long-term storage: Below 10 C (50 F)
Raw paper which has been stored at a low
temperature (by refrigeration) should be set aside
and allowed to warm to room temperature prior to
being opened. If the paper is taken out of its
packaging immediately after being removed from
refrigerated storage, condensation will form on the
paper surfaces, resulting in print color changes and
easily damaged surfaces.
The shortest periods required to return freezer- or
refrigerator-stored paper to room temperature
(minimum temperature equalization periods) are as
follows.

Notes on Print Storage
Prints should be inserted into albums, mounted, or
placed into a bag (plastic*) for photographic prints
before being stored.
* Made of polyester, polystyrene, polyethylene, or
polypropylene plastic, etc.
2 Even during normal storage, it is recommended that
prints be stored at a place as free as possible from
hot and humid conditions, and away from direct
sunlight and other strong light or from direct
illumination. The following are examples of
undesirable storage conditions.
Storage in a room closet facing a wall exposed to
cold outside air (which may cause
condensation).
Storage in a place near the ceiling, such as an
attic, the top of a closet or cupboard (where high
temperatures may occur).
3 Storing prints with their front surfaces facing each
other may result in unexpected problems. For this
reason, prints should be stored with their front
surfaces facing away from each other. If the
adjacent print placement is unavoidable, it is
necessary to keep the surfaces separated by, for
example, the use of interleaving sheets of paper.
If exposed paper remains unprocessed for extended
periods of time under normal room conditions or is
subjected to high temperature and/or high humidity,
changes in the color balance and other properties
may occur.
The time between exposure and development
should be fixed in order to obtain consistent quality.
Avoid waiting until the next day to develop the
exposed paper. Rather than holding the paper for
processing the next day, initiate processing as soon
as possible.

and CP-49E, or RA-4 type processes.

POST-PROCESSING PAPER (PRINT)
HANDLING/STORAGE
Since prints are usually used for the long-term
recording of images, as much effort as possible is
made to use materials that exhibit the least amount of
change over time, but the effects of light, heat, oxygen
in the air, contaminating gases, humidity and mold
cannot be completely avoided. It is possible, however,
to minimize the change in the photographic image or
base material by maintaining the appropriate storage
conditions for prints, such as those used by museums
and art galleries. Temperature and humidity control is
the most important key to minimizing the change that
occurs in prints. Prints stored in the dark under the
following conditions may be expected to show almost
no change over time.

LIGHT SOURCES FOR VIEWING
When inspecting finished color prints, it is essential
that an illumination source be used that has superior
spectral characteristics, adequately high color
temperature and sufficient brightness. This is because
results can appear different, depending on light quality.
For precise results, prints should be examined under
the conditions designated by ISO 3664-2000. As a
general guide, the following conditions are
recommended.
Color Temperature
: 5000 300 K
Average Illumination
: 500 Lux or more
General Color Rendering Index : Ra 90 or more*
* To attain these values, special fluorescent lamps
designed for color evaluation (e.g. EDL type)
should be used.
Relative
Humidity
30% - 50%
30% - 50%
When inspecting finished prints, be careful to shut out
all external light and colored reflected light.

USE WITH FA/FA COMPACT SERIES
Since cyan forming dye has been modified in
CRYSTAL ARCHIVE PAPER SUPREME <NEW>, a
problem may arise when this paper is used on the
printing condition settings made using the
densitometer (QT-600) built into Fuji Minilab FA/FA
compact series. When CRYSTAL ARCHIVE PAPER
SUPREME <NEW> is used with FA/FA compact
series of Minilabs, it is necessary to set the printing
conditions using the “ring-around print” method or
another densitometer.
It is necessary to adjust for the paper type for each
paper magazine by changing the paper “Type”
specification in the “Paper Magazine Registration”
menu.

Estimated Light Storage Stability under 500
Lux Intermittent Illumination Conditions***
Time-induced white background staining (yellowing) is as important as dye image fading in affecting image quality.
In regard to color image dark storage stability, the level of humidity is just as important as temperature. For this reason, more
accurate evaluations can be made by using the two humidity standards --- one for high humidity storage conditions (70%RH) and
that recommended for long-term storage (40%RH).
Since in common domestic situations sunlit areas may be bright as 1,000 lux or more during the day and drop to 300 lux in the
evening and at night, storage conditions are usually designated to be at an average of 500 lux of light exposure for 12 hours per
day.
