FAQ

Question: What is PreLume?

Answer: PreLume technology visually enhances graphic output by providing a white point that is brighter, whiter and lasts considerably longer than substrates whitened with typical optical brighteners (OBs). Optical brighteners will turn yellow when exposed to UV light or moisture.
