Giclée Prints on Archival Fine Art Paper

Your Image on Gallery Quality - Archival Paper

I offer a selection of either luster papers from Canson, or matte papers from Hahnemuhle. All papers are acid free, gallery quality and use archival inks.

Professional quality printing includes 20 minutes customized image adjustments (spot removal, straighten horizon, tone and colour correction, sharpen or resize etc.) Small images can be resized for larger prints. Large print sizes are available up to 60" in either dimension (or larger if required). All paper prints require framing or a protective cover of some type. Papers come in various sizes, up to 60 inches wide and any length.

Paper choices are determined by the type of image. Image detail and colour saturation are key considerations when selecting a paper:

  • Hahnemuhle Museum Etching matte paper is archival quality,100% cotton (rag paper). With just a very slight texture, this paper is Ideal for luscious rich colours, softer detail and less glare than luster paper. The luxurious texture of a traditional etching board and the natural white point make Museum Etching the ideal medium for images with soft detail, vibrant colours to soft tints or fine grey nuances. Given the heavy weight of this paper - 350 grams per square meter, it's a very heavy paper resistant to warping when framed. Maximum size is 24 inches wide by any length.
  • Hahnemuhle Photo Rag - is identical to Museum Etching but without any texture at 310 grams per square meter - it too is a very heavy paper. Maximum size is 44 inches wide by any length. A tube is required for transportation at long lengths (which can be provided).
  • Canson Baryta has a slight luster and also is archival quality. Ideal for very fine detail and great image sharpness, vivid colours, bright whites and exceptionally dark blacks (great for B&W). Maximum size is 60 inches wide by any length. A tube is required for transportation at long lengths (which can be provided).

Image detail and colour saturation will determine if Canson luster or Hahnemuhle matte papers are selected.

Printers proofs (using the actual paper) are encouraged to verify print quality and colour.

Deckled Edges

Creates the impression of an old-fashioned hand made paper with a rough uncut matte edge. This is typically placed at the bottom of the sheet or along each edge. A bottom deckle costs $10.00 while all edges are $30.00. Deckled edges are only available on Hahnemuhle matte papers.
