Today's blog concerns the letters I.C.P. many people know the term but no one seems to know what it means. Although they associate it with anti-marking films as a generic term it is actually a trademark of Shinoda & Co.,Ltd. and the letters ICP were originally associated with the anti-marking paper Shinoda developed. The term ICP actually stands for Intermediate Cylinder Press Paper. Today we use the ICP trademark for all our anti-marking films and the ICP term now stands for Ink Contamination Prevention.
