When you are ordering paper prints (vs. canvas, or printing on metal), your images will be printed on Kodak Professional Supra Endura VC Digital Paper for all available finishes (glossy, lustre, and metallic). Technical specifications for Kodak Professional Supra Endura Paper can be found here.
When you are ordering paper prints (vs. canvas, or printing on metal), you will be asked to choose one of three finishes: glossy, lustre, or metallic. Alternatively, you can order a canvas print (see details below).
Glossy photos are printed on coated paper with a very smooth, shiny, reflective surface. They have a high-contrast appearance and look slick to the touch when not under glass. They offer more color pop than matte, though this is less apparent once framed.
Lustre paper is the professional grade paper most preferred by portrait and wedding photographers. It has a slight gloss with a subtle, pearl-like texture. It has a deep color saturation and high contrast. Fingerprints and smudges are not as visible as with glossy, and it has anti-glare. It is great for framing.
Metallic paper adds a shimmer and vibrant colors, with a highly reflective, glossy finish. It is extremely durable and tear resistant. It produces an almost chrome-like burnished appearance, with a striking, distinctive look. The glossy finish and metallic look produce lots of visual interest and depth, with excellent color saturation.
When you are ordering mounted prints, you will be asked to choose from the following options: gallery wrap, standout, float wrap, and metal print (see details below).
The image is printed on canvas, and wrapped around a 1.5″ frame. Because approximately 2″ of the image on each side will be wrapped around the frame’s edges, it is important to note that this product is best for images that do NOT contain important edge detail. If you have any questions, please contact me. I may be able to re-edit your image to make this work.
This product is made from a lightweight foam, which has a 3/4″ depth and black edging. It comes with pre-cut holes on the back, for easy hanging. It is important to note that this product is undersized by 1/4″ from the listed size, so it is not appropriate for images with key detail at the edges. If you have any questions, please contact me. I may be able to re-edit your image to make this work.
To create this product, your image is first printed on lustre paper, and wrapped around a 3/4″ gatorboard block. It is then coated with a protective matte laminate, for a sleek, elegant look. It has a paper backing. Because approximately 2″ of the image on each side will be wrapped around the frame’s edges, it is important to note that this product is best for images that do NOT contain important edge detail. If you have any questions, please contact me. I may be able to re-edit your image to make this work.
For this product, the image is printed directly onto high quality aluminum, with 1/8″ rounded corners. The printing is done with a dye sublimation process, which creates a clean and lasting product with a modern design. It comes with pre-cut holes on the back, for easy hanging, and gives your image the appearance of floating 3/4″ from the wall.
The aluminum (with the image printed on the front) is mounted on gatorboard, similar to the float wrap above. However, the image is contained only on the thin slab of metal, and does not extend around the edges. Therefore, this mounting is suitable for any photo, and does not require the extra empty space at the edges like the canvas gallery wrap, float wrap, or standout mountings.
