C-Type Prints

C-type prints, also known as C-prints or chromogenic prints, are color photographs printed from a color negative or a digital image. Produced during the mid-20th century, the process of printing a C-type involves chromogenic chemical reactions to produce the dyes that make-up a color image. The term C-type originated from paper of the same name, made commercially available by the Kodak Company in the early 1940s.

In a chromogenic process, the paper, which has been is embedded with layers of cyan, magenta, and yellow dyes mixed with silver salts, is exposed optically from the negative. A series of chemical reactions take place to process these chemical compounds with another emulsion called the dye coupler allowing each color to remain in its layer and forming a full color print.
