Xerox Corporation to Traditional Notions of Archival Print Quality: “DROP DEAD”

Xerox is developing a so-called erasable paper. Apparently, the corporation’s “scientists have invented a way to make prints whose images last only a day, so that the paper can be used again and again.”

The Xerox Innovation Group conducts work in color science, computing, digital imaging, work practices, electromechanical systems, novel materials, linguistics, work practice analysis, and nanotechnology connected to Xerox’s expertise in printing and document management.
