Why Archival Ink Matters
Archival ink is pigment based ink that provides high quality color and image stability. Pigment based ink is quite different from dye based ink. Where dye based ink is absorbed into the material, pigment based ink sits on top of the material. This method ensures brighter color, and longer-lasting picture life (over 100 years). We recommend using archival ink for long lasting picture quality, professional printing, canvas printing, vinyl printing, and any graphic design work. We also recommend using full conservation framing with archival ink to ensure long lasting artwork.
The Drawbacks Of Regular Dye Ink
Dye type ink is designed to permanently change the color of the material it is applied to. This type of ink, as the name implies, saturates the material, meaning the color is absorbed. This type of ink fades quickly over time, has the potential to bleed colors, and does not produce high quality prints. With these things in mind, we have decided to only use archival ink to provide vivid results that will last.
The size at which your digital photos can be printed at depends on the original quality of the image. For accurate recommendations we highly suggest you bring in your digital image so our Creative Services department can examine it. Once examined, we can give you a quote, and some guidelines in regards to what will print out best. Our professional Graphic Artist can help you chose a size that will retain the best qualitys of your picture, without causing distortions and unwanted effects.
Here you will find many great examples of what we have done, and what is possible when it comes to custom printing and mounting/framing your artwork. We can work from any digital file your provide us with to create outstanding custom pieces, and collage work.
What Can Be Done With Your Print Work?
By using your digital images, we can adjust images to your desired size (assuming they meet the quality requirements for you desired size). Once images are adjusted to your desired size, we can then print your images on your choice of media. Images can also be modified to your liking at this stage by doing touch ups, restoration, adding typography and other effects to your taste.
Printing On Canvas
If an image is printed on canvas, we can then stretch or frame your canvas so it is ready to hung on your wall.
Printing On Paper
If an image is printed on paper, you can then choose your preferred style of framing or mounting. This allows for us to create a work art to your exact specifications. Why settle on artwork, when you can make your own!
