All Cicada Prints are printed using a photographic processing system (just like with old film) on archive-quality, heavy weight paper with a matte finish. Photographic Processing uses no ink, so your print colors will not run or bleed. As a matter of fact, your print is waterproof (we do not recommend submerging your print in water.... but should it get wet... it should be just fine).
We use Fujicolor Crystal Archive Professional Paper. Crystal Archive is a resin-based paper that is noted for it's unmatched archival quality. It is the choice of professional photographers and commercial labs. Recent studies show that Crystal Archive is the most fade-resistant photographic paper available today. Long story short, you print can last hundreds of years!
