Photo gifts include a far greater variety of materials than used in traditional photo finishing operations. Durability and image permanence play important roles in the quality of these products, which include photo books, poster, mugs, mouse pads, and other items. In some cases, traditional test methods may be modified to assess the quality of these products. In other cases, entirely new test methods are required. This presentation will compare the performance of photo gifts to traditional photographic materials under a variety of test conditions.
