Print Information

Fine Art Prints

Photographs are printed with pigment inks onto Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl 310gsm digital photo paper. This paper features the very latest HDR (High Dynamic Range) optically clear nanoporous coating which makes it the reference media for producing images with an excellent colour gamut as well as superb clarity and sharpness. The paper is archival sound and acid free.

All prints are heat sealed with a Satin Film which are incredibly durable, easy to keep clean and has minimal effect on the printed piece. As the film is relatively thin it does not reduce contrast while lessening the amount of glare. UV inhibitors are used as part of the heat sealing process in order to prevent the film from turning yellow and becoming brittle over time thereby  increasing the fade resistance of of the photograph.

Photographs may also be purchased, mounted on Gatorboard. Gatorboard is composed of a series of lightweight structured panels consisting of a rigid polystyrene foam core faced on both sides by smooth, moisture resistant man-made wood fibre veneers. The foam and veneers are permanently bonded together in a sandwich construction. The face laminates have been specifically developed to provide an excellent surface for laminating and photo mounting. The exterior qualities of Gatorboard make it a top choice for exhibits. White Gatorboard has successfully passed the photo activity test conducted by the Image Permanence Institute of the Rochester Institute of Technology. Conservation mounting requires special materials to ensure that the art to be preserved will remain undamaged in the future.  Gatorboard has been successfully used by a number of major museum to mount exhibitions which span a number of years.

The combination of heat sealing and gatorboard mounting eliminates the need for glass when framing.
