MFA# 2003.658


An abbreviated name used for Kodak Color Print Type C photographic paper. C print paper is a negative-positive chromogenic paper that was produced from 1955 to about 1959 (Nadeau 1997). It is a silver halide print, or a dye coupler print, made from a color negative, transparency or digital image, and developed using a chromogenic process. They are composed of three layers of gelatin, each containing an emulsion of silver halide, which is used as a light-sensitive material and a subtractive dye coupler, which together, when developed, form a full-color image.
