PRINTS: Glossy, Matte, Lustre, Metallic or Black-and-White
5 print finishes are available during check-out for all or some of the formats.
Glossy photos are printed on coated paper with a smooth, shiny reflective surface. Glossy finishes have a high-contrast, crisp, and sharp appearance and look slick to the touch. It has an excellent dynamic range and color. Colors appear vibrant, with slightly more “pop” than the matte paper.
Matte finishes have a very smooth, non-glare surface. Matte finishes have a lower-contrast when printed and are often used to enhance the texture of a print. Fingerprints and smudges are not as visible as they are on a Glossy print.
Lustre is professional-grade paper, typically preferred for portraits and weddings. It has a slight gloss, a deeper color-saturation than matte, higher contrast, and is thicker than consumer paper. Fingerprints and smudges are not as visible. It is anti-glare and great for framing.
Metallic paper produces an almost chrome-like, burnished appearance with exceptional sharpness, brightness, color saturation, and intense blacks. The glossy finish and eye-catching metallic look create prints with exceptional visual interest and depth. It is extremely durable for display applications.
Black-and-White finish uses a silver-halide paper with excellent contrast, sharpness, and surface finish that will give a superb, continuous tone to black-and-white images. Results are equal to those seen when using conventional black-and-white printing materials and exposing equipment.
Gallery Wrap or Rolled Canvas
Gallery Wrap Canvas is a method of stretching a canvas so that it wraps around the sides of the stretcher bar and is secured to the back of the wooden frame.
Your pictures are printed on fine quality canvas and coated to seal their beauty. They arrive ready to make a splash on your walls.
Rolled Canvas is a canvas print that has not been stretched over a timber frame. This means it is less susceptible to damage and can be rolled for easier storage or transportation.
It is printed on archival quality canvas, laminated, and ready for you to have stretched or framed before it can be displayed.
Float Wraps are an exciting and unique way to display prints.
Prints are mounted to a padded board to give some dimension, then a wood hanging block is applied to the back of the mounted print in order to give it a lot of depth.
Its black paper backing and thick gatorboard block with holes allows the image to hang extended from the wall, giving the impression that your image is floating.
Standout option has a very clean, modern style and looks good from all angles.
It is made from lightweight foam with an edge.
As an example of what Standout looks like, you’ll see here two of my pictures from Huahine island (French Polynesia) and from the replica by the Vegas Parisian casino in Macao (China) – nope, that’s not Paris! –
ACRYLIC GALLERY and more…
Acrylic prints will create a focal point in any room. They are bright and glossy-looking, with light-reflecting through the acrylic sheet onto the image itself. They are made by printing the photographic image onto high-quality photo paper, which is then pressure-bonded to the back of a polished acrylic sheet.
Additionally, a few formats-size also offer the following options:
Velvet, a 100% cotton paper. It has a patterned texture with a similar look and feels to watercolor paper.
Giclée Fine Art Prints, that retain tonality and hue on archival paper that ensures longevity.
