ABOUT PRINTS Prints available in A2 (42x59.4cm) and A3 (29.7x42cm) and produced using a Canon iPF8400 Fine Art and Graphics inkjet printer combined with Canon's LUCIA EX Ink set and Fotospeed Platinum Baryta 300g paper. This combination originates extremely beautiful photographic prints similar in style and feel to 'old school' wet prints. (Note: other sizes may be available by request and special order.)THE PRINTER- A Canon iPF8400 fine art inkjet printer, giving exceptional professional performance producing ultra high quality Fine Art imaging.
THE PAPER- Platinum Baryta 300 is a 100% acid free, Fine Art paper with a smooth unglazed gloss surface. A natural white base and state of the art micro-porous ink receiving layer delivers a high D-MAX (2.7) and wide colour gamut. Platinum Baryta 300 reveals delicate highlights and smooth transitions to shadows for both colour and B&W printing. The paper is approved by the Fine Art Trade Guild and when used in conjunction with pigment inks will ensure a print life of more than 85 years.
Fotospeed’s Platinum Baryta superbly bridges the gap between the traditional darkroom papers and today's digital media.
THE INK- Canon's LUCIA EX 12 colour ink set offers a brilliant range of vibrant colors, smooth gradations, good scratch resistance, superb black reproduction with incredible unsurpassed fine detail.
FRAMING- A beautiful print looks even more impressive when framed well; our particular taste favours simple black or white frames but that is your call of course. We strongly recommend preserving the integrity of your archival print by specifying an acid and lignin free window mat.
