Frequently Asked Questions
Here you will find answers to your questions and know a little more about what we do
What kind of paper do you offer?
We pair our archival Epson inks with archival Epson paper. There is a choice between luster (semi-matte), glossy, and metallic (Pearl or Silver).
What kind of paper should I use?
Every image deserves to be printed for maximum effect. Luster is a client favorite that has enough shine to stand out as well as enough matte to make it a great choice for traditional framing. Luster is only available for photographic prints. Glossy provides the shine that makes a picture pop, but may stick to other paper as a result of its additional coating. Metallic is an ideal paper for images with a lot of highlight and contrast as it amplifies the potential of both. Metallic Pearl is a traditional metallic paper that allows images to leap off the page. Silver Metallic lends an even greater “wow” moment because the silver sheen of the paper deeply enhances the illumination of an image.
What kind of files do you accept?
We print using JPEG, TIFF, and PDF files.
