When getting ready to place your order, one of the first choices you need to make is about paper. The most common and frequently ordered options are lustre and matte prints.

Matte: Matte paper has a very smooth, non-glare surface. Matte finishes have a lower contrast when printed and are often used to enhance the texture of a print.

Lustre: Lustre is a premier paper option and is considered professional-grade paper. Lustre has a slight gloss with a subtle, often pearl-like, texture.

Both options are offered in just about any print size you will need.

Fine Art Photographs are printed on a special texture paper. Fine Art Paper has a light, watercolor texture and delicate feel. Your image is printed on this matte paper with a large inkjet printer, creating a stunning fine art print that will last for years to come.

This is sometimes referred to as “Giclee” printing. The Giclee printing process provides higher image detail than traditional photographic printing by using seven dye-based inks; therefore producing vibrant color reproduction and enhanced image clarity.
