FEATURES AND USES
2.
FUJICOLOR CRYSTAL ARCHIVE PAPER SUPREME
HIGH DEFINITION is designed in such a way that endconsumers will experience a high quality picture. It has
a wide color range in combination with a solid base for
optimal handling during picture viewing. It is provided
with a thicker base and smooth high gloss finish and is
recognized by its attractive gold back print. The color
range is wider and the thickness is higher in Supreme
High Definition Paper compared to Supreme Paper.
High Definition paper delivers enhanced color reproduction, white purity, excellent image stability just as
well as other Fujicolor Crystal Archive Papers.
Supreme High Definition paper can be used with all
Frontier series and digital high speed printers and will
replace the Supreme Type II paper.
Handle in total darkness. If safelight use is unavoidable,
observe the following precautions.
• Expose paper no longer than 1 minute to light emitted 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.

PRE-PROCESSING PAPER HANDLING/
STORAGE
• 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.

1 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 conden⎪ sation).
⎨
⎪ • 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.
NOTES • Do not heat paper in order to equalize temperatures.
• Remove paper from refrigeration one day before use.
• 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.

PROCESSING
This paper is designed to produce optimum results in
conjunction with Fuji Minilab Process CP-48S or CP49E.
Combining this paper with Fuji chemicals results in
many advantages including faster processing, greater
processing stability, reduced contamination hazards,
greater ease in solution preparation and higher print
quality.

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.
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.

When inspecting finished prints, be careful to shut out
all external light and colored reflected light.

USE WITH FRONTIER
Please refer to the following calibration data as a general guide when using FUJICOLOR CRYSTAL ARCHIVE
PAPER SUPREME HIGH DEFINITION on a digital printer.

* 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 as 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.
