Fine Art Portraiture Printed Products

From capture to print, our work flow is fully calibrated to ensure your prints have a rich range of tones with fine detail and textures.

Displays

All products are a minimum of archival quality with museum grade being our goal. This ensures your photos will last a lifetime and beyond. The paper and ink used are fade resistant guaranteed for in excess of 100 years. (1) The ink, paper and framing materials are acid free. Materials that contain acids will eventually cause discolouration and staining as the acid leaches into your photograph.

1. Only when hung out of direct sunlight and away from artificial heat such as radiators.

Archival Framed Prints

The fine art matte paper used for in-house printing is either Canson Arches Velin Museum Rag 315gsm or Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308gsm, which are 100% cotton, and rated as museum quality. The prints are created using a unique process of pure carbon inks in seven shades of  black and grey. This pigment ink on paper process is often referred to as Giclee printing. The process of using seven shades of ink along with an advanced printing method produces a far greater range of tones, with depth and detail that normal large format prints cannot match. The pure carbon inks give a rich warm tone, the strength of which is determined by the paper used.

Your archival print will be hand assembled in a real wooden frame. The print is mounted with museum grade Alpharag mount board using the hinged method. This method allows the print to breathe in different atmospheric conditions and so prevents warping. The frame is then sealed to prevent contaminants entering and damaging the print. All materials used are acid free. The frames come ready to hang, including lower frame cushions to protect the frame and wall. A choice of wall mounts is available.

Fine Art Album

Our fine art album is printed and assembled in-house which means you will get the same unique print process used for our framed prints.  It is printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag duo 276gsm with a red stitched leather cover and protective interleafs, with each image receiving a special environmental coating along.

Fine Art Photo Book

Our photo books are hand crafted in the UK. Each one is professionally designed, then hand printed, hand bound and encased in a fine natural leather cover. They open out flat with an almost invisible crease so each image is on full view. Each album is engraved or imprinted with the book title.

These photo books are printed on archival quality 100% cotton rag paper 310gsm with pigment inks, which give razor sharp image definition that will stand the test of time. The quality is such that the paper and ink will not crack even when printed across the crease. The materials used in construction are acid free.

Your photo book will be wrapped in a sleeve made from natural, unbleached cotton and then carefully placed in a sleek keepsake box made from recycled materials.

In addition to our main photo books, we also offer mini copies, these are sometimes called grandparent books as are often ordered for them. The mini copies are 6×6” and printed on the same high quality paper 100% cotton rag paper, but in a lower paper weight of 220gsm.

Note: These are not produced in-house, so the prints use the traditional large format black and white  printing process and not the unique print process offered for the in-house framed prints.
