Photo Mediums

A little about the what our photos can be printed on…

We use a professional photo studio to print our images. We currently offer 4 different mediums to print the images on:

  • Matte or Glossy Photo Paper
  • Unmounted Canavs
  • Arcylic
  • Brushed Aluminum

A detailed description of each medium is below:

Matte or Glossy Photo Paper: This photo paper is an affordable professional quality photo paper that delivers bright colours and sharp details with a Matte or Gloss finish. Please note, you will have to provide your own frame.

Acrylic (also known as Plexiglas) is a high-end, rigid and transparent synthetic material. Its look is similar to glass, while being much less brittle, with a thickness of 3/16″ (4.5mm). The printing is done directly on the acrylic using a high-precision ink jet printer, which gives it a depth and extraordinary brightness to the picture. The back of the print is protected by a vinyl sticker. A sub-frame in installed to the back of the print, with a hook for easy installation.

Acrylic is a material that fits perfectly into a modern and minimalist decor, although it is possible to frame it for an even more special finish. Pictures printed on Acrylic, combined with a bright space will give your decor a magic, bright and modern touch!

Brushed Aluminum provides a bright and stunning effect to your images. During the printing process, white ink is not printed. This lets the metal shine through on the brightest parts of the picture, which adds to the modern and industrial look of the print. A guaranteed wow factor!

Aluminum printings are made directly on silver-based DIBOND brushed aluminum panels, specifically designed for high-end printing. This professional-grade material is known for its brightness, its rigidity and immutability (stainless steel, UV and corrosion resistant, etc.). Each panel is made of two aluminum plates with a plate of polyethylene in the center. The inks used are UV resistant and weatherproof, making it an ideal product for inside AND outside use. A sub-frame in installed to the back of the print, with a hook for easy installation.

Unmounted Canvas prints: Heavy weight 400 gsm 21mil thick Canvas Cloth, available from 8” x 12” to 20” x 30”
