Printing options

  I offer a few different options for my prints.  A print lab in Atlanta handles my paper and canvas prints. A company who's one of the leaders in the industry handles my metal prints.  Each printing method has its advantages.  I will give a description of each below so you can make the correct choice of how you want your new art to look in your home.

Our Metal Prints:

 

  We start with a sheet of our favorite element, aluminum. The material is lightweight, durable, highly resistant to corrosion, does not rust and is naturally flame retardant, so you can be sure your photo prints will last.

Our process does not simply print on the metal, but we sublimate the particles of color into the metal sheet. This means no smudging , water damage, or scratching on the photo print.

While many conventional printers use various dotted printing methods, we industry pioneers excel in increasing the DPI (dots per inch) to get the highest resolution print possible.

 

Our Alumination printers fuse the solid particles together, mixing them thoroughly to create exacting colors that are brighter and more accurate than you can get with traditional dye or ink.

The sublimation dye is semi-transparent, allowing the luminosity of the metal behind it to shine through. Then we apply a specially formulated coating to give the illusion of depth.

Our photo prints are gorgeous in a way canvas and paper prints can never be.

  Our Enhanched Matte Prints:

  Designed for such use as exhibition, advertising and other commercial photo applications Fuji Crystal Archive Professional Matte Paper delivers rich tonal gradation, vivid color reproduction and lasting print permanence. This paper also has High D-Max for deep, rich blacks with slightly reduced color saturation level and crisp text. Matte has a smoother pebble surface than Lustre paper has resulting in a surface texture closer to true fiber paper, making it a good choice for black and white images.

  Our Portfolio Lustre Paper:

  Fujicolor's Crystal Archive Digital Lustre Paper Type PD is Fuji's highest grade paper that offers color reproduction resulting in accurate and vibrant colors with a "true-to-life" look. Optimized silver halide crystals deliver excellent portrait prints offering superb color image stability that makes it Fuji's longest lasting paper. It also has excellent skin tone reproduction that captures the diversity of skin tones faithfully, and its ideal gradation balance delivers neutrals and deep blacks with unbiased grays over the entire density range.

  Our Fuji Glossy Paper:

  World class color image stability produces bright, crisp commercial nature and portrait prints. Optimized silver halide crystals for laser exposure delivers excellent print quality with a high gloss finish. Fuji's Glossy paper has a high D-Max for deep, rich blacks, crisp text and vibrant yet accurate colors. This paper has a softer surface than other types and will need to be handled with care.

  Our beautiful Stretched Gloss Canvas:

  Our Canvas is printed on Epson Exhibition Canvas Gloss, an acid free, lignin free heavyweight cotton-poly blend, with exceptionally high Dmax and wide color gamut. This product is a favorite for our portrait and wall décor photographers.

The media is available up to 60”x120”, and the canvas base is enhanced with elastic polymers providing high tensile strength and flexibility for gallery wrap stretching without cracking.

  The Canvas is stretched on a 1 1/2 wooded frame with mirrored edges.  Mirrored edges mean that the photo wraps around the wood frame creating wonderful depth to the image.
