Printing Process & Materials

Prints

Every image is treated individually and checked four times during the processing to ensure you receive a flawless print.

My printing supplier has an ICC (International Colour Consortium) colour managed system. This ensures your images are consistent in colour, density, contrast, saturation and sharpness. The R.I.P (Raster Interface Protocol) we use is a world leader in digital print controllers for wide-format printers. We use a ten-colour digital printing process with archival pigment based inks. Coupled with the very best Photographic and Fine Art Papers we can achieve a large printable colour gamut with amazing saturation and tonal reproduction.

Your artwork is printed on CENTURION Photo Silk 285, which is a super white, smooth paper and has the look and feel of a traditional silver halide photo paper because of its true photographic resin coated substrate base. The paper is specifically designed for high quality professional photographic output, with increased colour gamut, deeper black density and improved scuff resistance. The significant change is the move of the optical brighteners from the inkjet receptor layer into the RC base. This unique feature means the paper will be more resistant to fading and yellowing. Optical brighteners can breakdown overtime due to sunlight exposure, moving the OBA’s to the base, gives the paper stronger archival characteristics.

Canvas

Your Image is printed on Museum Grade Fine Art Canvas which is specially designed for Photography, Fine Art reproductions and Contemporary Art Prints.

The canvas has a finely woven blend of cotton and polyflax which displays a subtle texture with fewer artifacts for a true artistic look and feel. This OBA-Free Bright White canvas embraces new technology to maximize the longevity of a print while maintaining a bright white surface. It offers a high resolution coating for increased colour brilliance and image definition. Each canvas is varnished with a museum grade water based, non-yellowing crystal clear lacquer.

This satin finish boasts high levels of UV inhibitors as well as anti-fungal additives to provide optimum protection to your images.

Each varnished canvas is tensioned onto professional kiln dried, finger jointed frames and fixed with stainless steel staples. The assembly is completed with framers tape and is strung ready to hang. This is an archival canvas solution with quality image reproduction that invites attention.
