All common fine art papers were tested by me (over 50), printing the same image on all papers. For many days I compared all and fell in love with the paper from "Hahnemühle" (type: Baryta FB 350 g/m²). The company has over 400 years of experience and is one of the top manufacturers of paper for photographers and painters. The paper is natural and due to the high capacity to absorb the ink, it gives the photo a silky impression.
The fine type printer has 12 inks instead of the regular 3, which guarantee that the colors are printed as intended by the photographer. You can see more detail in the darkest and brightest parts than with a regular printer. The contrast is incredible – the photo looks dimensional. Every time I see one of my new pictures printed for the first time, I discover more details than on the computer screen.
SMALL 21,0 x 29,7 cm
MEDIUM 29,7 x 42,0 cm
LARGE 42,0 x 59,4 cm
The presentation of the photo looks more elegant with a white border, which is also commonly used at photo exhibitions. Besides its visual enhancement, it can serve helping to mat a print.
The print lies cozy wrapped in sating paper, protected by 4 thick layers of cardboard. An elephant could step on it and it would be fine. Ok, baby elephant.
Your piece of art is shipped to anywhere in the world. Shipping is free and you will get a tracking number. The journey starts in Germany.
People living in the EU & Switzerland don’t have to pay customs. Other places might pay it, which is not common, since it will be send as a “letter”.
When you receive the print, you can mount it the classic way: frame & behind glass. I recommend you to look into the option to have the print mounted on: FOREX, DIBOND or something similar. It looks great! But that’s my personal taste. No glass necessary! The combination of fine art paper and print promises already a long life. In addition, every print is sprayed with a protective spray (from Hahnemühle) which gives the print some extra protection.
