Whether you need prints for an upcoming exhibition, to give as a gift, or to reproduce an original artwork; archival inkjet printing is a great solution. A properly printed inkjet print (sometimes called a giclée print) can last up to 200 years, and can produce astounding detail and subtle tones.
I print using the Epson Stylus Pro 3880 wide format printer, which uses the Epson Ultrachrome K3 ink set and produces prints with an extremely wide color gamut. Sizes range from 8x10 to 16x 24. Stock papers are by Red River Paper.
Please use the following naming convention: SmithJohn-8x10-1.tiff
Recommended file types are .tiff, .pdf, .bmp, or .jpg. Best results are achieved at 300dpi or higher.
Please contact me before placing your order if you want help preparing your files for print.
Choose matte for landscapes, black and white photography, low contrast images, design, and artistic work. The lack of surface reflection means that details are the primary focus of the print.
Bold white papers are great for reproducing rich blacks and higher contrast. The surface is textured to a medium depth - just the right amount to enhance your prints without being a distraction. Produces a wide color gamut as well as smooth tonal transitions. Black & white photos will be neutral and crisp.
Made using refined 100% cotton, this paper brings elegance, warmth, and nuance to your photography and art prints. Features a pleasing natural white tone and semi-smooth surface. Contains no optical brighteners. This is a benefit because the paper will remain its original shade over a long period of time.
