We feel that honesty is by far the best policy in life, so in order for us to practise what we fully believe in, it makes sense for us to explain a little more about how we produce our prints.

INKS:
Using resin-coated Epson UltraChrome K3 pigment inks, means we achieve superb longevity and durability in our work. The high density pigments produce prints with an extremely wide colour gamut and the combination of three individual blacks, means the prints have a very smooth transition between tones and are free of colour casts.

By its very nature, producing beautiful photographic prints is colour critical, so our machines and screens are calibrated regularly. We use individual, unique ICC profiles with both of our paper-stocks for supremely accurate results between screen and print.

PAPERS:
We currently use two archival stocks created by Da Vinci Fine Art: a range of acid-free, museum grade, fibre-based papers. The first is a stunning 285gsm semi-gloss finish, with a bright white base, giving exceptional colour density and tonal range. The subtle gloss, combined with the smooth fibre surface emulates the timeless qualities of traditional silver-bromide printing.

As an alternative to that, we also use a slightly heavier 315gsm, 100% cotton 'rag', watercolour paper. It's specially formulated inkjet coating gives a velvety-smooth, matt finish and has a natural white base, which is a touch warmer than the semi-gloss paper.

Whether you settle on the semi-gloss or the matt finish, we are certain that the combination of very high quality inks and superbly-crafted papers will bring as much pleasure to the people viewing the photographs, as it does to us producing them.
