PAPER PRINTS WITH THE HIGHEST QUALITY STANDARDS
Fine art paper prints and reproductions of paintings and photos are not a specialty to us, it is our profession. In oil paintings and graphic images it is normal to mix many colors together, and these fill a complex color area. Simply put: the colors of the masters cannot be reproduced with standard art print techniques. For example, the purple tones of the Late Baroque or the intense greens, blues and bright reds in Expressionism can cause serious problems for regular printers.
We use a 12 color inkjet professionnal printers that guarantee the grandest color spectrums in the fine art print industry. You will not find a better printing system able to reproduce a greater amount of colors and guarantee a pattern-free art print at 2400 DPI.
For example, the purple tones of the late Baroque or the intense green, blue and bright orange of Expressionism can give a lot of trouble to regular printers. For us, this type of colors are not a problem since our professional printers have a 12-color inkjet printing system, used for giclee printing technique, which can perfectly recreate every single shade. You cannot find a more appropriate printing equipment!
You can order a sample box of our printing supports so you can see for yourself their quality. This A5 format sample box contains: all our different types of paper, acrylic glass, Dibond aluminum and canvas.
