Prints on Paper

Our photographs printed on paper are offered with your choice of three different finishes: Glossy, Lustre, and Metallic. Prints on paper may be purchased as prints only or we offer affordable framing and matting. We have a wide variety of colors available in wood and metal framing.

Glossy

Glossy is a shiny finish printed on Kodak Royal Paper or Kodak Endura Paper.
It is a coated paper with a very smooth, shiny reflective surface. Glossy finishes have a high-contrast appearance and look slick to the touch when not under glass.  This finish has an excellent dynamic range and color - slightly more "pop" than the matte paper, though less noticeable once framed.  Photos will have a shiny finish, colors will be vibrant, and images will be crisp and sharp.

 

Lustre

lustre is our premier paper offering, and is considered a professional-grade paper. Lustre has a slight gloss with a subtle, often pearl-like texture. Lustre paper has deeper color-saturation and higher contrast than matte and is materially 'thicker,' or heavier, than consumer paper. Lustre offers the vibrant colors of glossy with a fingerprint-resistant matte finish. Printed on Kodak Endura Paper. Lustre has a satin-like sheen and a modestly textured surface which you can see when the light angle is just right.

Lustre prints offer the best of both worlds:
•the color saturation of glossy
•the fingerprint resistance of matte
•without the glare associated with glossy

Metallic

Rich, distinctive prints with a huge WOW! factor. Printed on Kodak Endura Professional Metallic Paper.

With a glossy finish and unique metallic appearance, these prints have extra visual interest and depth. They are printed on long-lasting Kodak Professional Endura Metallic paper.

This paper uses a proprietary combination of film laminate layers that produce striking, three-dimensional, lasting images on an ultra-bright background. The effect is sometimes described as "chrome on paper."

You'll see extreme sharpness, brightness, and color saturation with an intense black density that increases its appeal. The proprietary laminate layers also increase the durability and tear resistance of the final print, increasing the opportunities for display applications.

Mounting

As an alternative to conventional matting and framing, we offer three varieties of mounts that need no frames.

3/4: Standout Mount - a think black rigid lightweight backing material that is ready to hang on your wall.

Gatorfoam - a very rigid foam board and lightweight backing with a matte black finish. Prints are mounted to the Gatorfoam using pressure sensitive materials for a durable print that will not warp.

Styrene - prints are mounted on 2mm thick Styrene using pressure sensitive materials. Styrene is a super smooth plastic mounting substrate that is known for its durability, rigidity and strength. Available in black or white.

Giclée Prints on Canvas

Prints made by a large format inkjet printer using premium, archival inks. The Giclée process enables us to print directly onto museum-quality canvas material, so prints will not separate over time. Protective spray coating is applied to the surface of each print to help prevent scratches and other damage.

Canvas prints are available in three different mounting options: Canvas Wrap, Canvas Stretch/Staple, and Canvas Board.

Canvas Wrap prints are a stylish, low-cost alternative to traditional framing. The print is wrapped around a stretcher frame so that 1 3/4" of the photo's edges are visible on the sides of the frame. Since the outer edge of the photo will be used for the sides of the frame, not all of the photo will be visible from the front. They are delivered ready to hang with hanging hardware attached.


Canvas Stretch mounting is a unique way to display your images like a fine art canvas. The print is stretched to the edge of a 3/4" thick wooden frame, and stapled around the edges, leaving the full image on the front. Perfect for framing.

Canvas Board prints are mounted onto sturdy Gatorfoam board, a very rigid foam board and lightweight backing with a white finish.
