How long will the image last on KernowPrint Dry Toner when used outside?

The longevity of the image depends on the concentration of UV in the light it is exposed to. Direct sun is worst case and from what we have seen the image will begin to fade within 6 months of direct exposure. We do not know if the fade curve is linear relative to UV concentration or how long the image will last in total darkness. The key however is protecting the image from UV whether it is through using UV-screening over-varnish or glass containing a UV barrier.  Toners also vary in printing hardware, with a variation between different makes and models possible.

Can KernowPrint Dry Toner sheets be folded and scored?

Thinner films can be folded using standard folding equipment, but it will continue to have some bounce back unlike paper because it has no grain and is a denser material. Thicker films requires systems that can apply heat and/or scoring (after printing) to create an effective fold.

Traditional scoring techniques such as Press Score, Rotary Score, or Die score are suitable. The depth of the score should be 20% of the thickness of the media.
