Pricing: Huge savings the larger the Print!
I have structured my pricing grid to provide better value the larger the image. I'm absolutely confinced a large image provides a Wow factor smaller images just cannot match. I process all of my images to be potentailly printed huge, showing incredible detail that aims to please even the most critical eye. Any image over 900 sq inches already has a built in reduction of 5% per sq inch. For example, a 32x40 goes from $448.00 to $384.00. Lastly, because I provide a huge discount with larger images, I do have to charge shipping fees for images over 1200 sq inches. However, I will waive that fee if I can personally deliver the image within a reasonable driving distance within the Denver market.
High Tech Printing:
Printing a beautiful color image is about paying attention to the subtle nuances of each scene, and making sure those qualities are ensured in the final print. I have selected Ink Jet Printing to convey my bold, beautifully, rich color. My personal favorite paper to convey bold, vibrant colors is Metallic Paper however I offer two additional papers that render amazing results.
Prints are produced using a state‐of‐the‐art twelve ink high‐sustainability Canon Lucia EX pigment inkjet printer; these pigment inks combine the glossiness of dye ink with the vivid colors and weather resistance of pigment ink. With this printing technology colors are more true to color that with chemical prints and can achieve 1200 dpi resolution with ink drop sizes as small as 4 picoliters. The printer’s built in calibration system achieves consistent results and allows prints to be processed in 16‐bit format. Partnered with the DuraPlaq process, the art prints achieve greater than a 115 year archival rating by the Wilhelm Institute.
Currently I offer three paper types, satin/Luster, metallic(Fuji Pearl,) and Epson Ultrasmooth 100% Cotton Rag. Each paper type maintains the 115 year archival rating and crisp print quality achieved with the in‐house print process.
Satin (Regular) Paper:
This archival premium‐quality photo paper is slightly textured and maintains a satin (or luster) surface. It is similar to E‐surface papers utilized in darkroom printing; however the print surface doesn’t show fingerprints, reflect glare like glossy papers, and provides greater color accuracy.
It has excellent ink retention properties yielding an exceptionally large color gamut for bright, realistically saturated colors and accurate skin tones.
Meeting more fine art demands, and my personal favorite, metallic prints are sure to please anyone seeking a paper with a slightly metallic surface and higher gloss than the regular paper. These prints yield a pearlescent metallic sheen that gives prints a sharp, vibrant, and exceptionally rich‐looking appearance. This paper looks much like traditional 'wet' photo paper with the control of an inkjet printer. This paper is suitable for and highly recommended for PlexiPlaq and AlumaPlaq products to achieve a truly fine art product.
Fine Art/Giclee Paper:
My paper choice is Epson Ultrasmooth 100% Cotton Rag. I currently do not offer "Fine Art Paper" in my drop-down menus while ordering a print, so please contact me if interested.
Epson Ultrasmooth is "real" heavy weight paper with long term (125 years) durability and the paper is acid free and PH buffered to assure preservation. Ultrasmooth is optimized for pigment inks such as the Epson K3 Ultrachrome inks, resulting in prints with incredibly vibrant colors and strong contrast. Each Ultrasmooth print comes with a 2" white border at no additional cost. This is done to preserve the integrity of the composition of a Fine Art Giclee. This allows you to custom matte and frame the picture without losing any of the photograph details.This paper is runs approximately 10-15% more expensive per sq inch compared to the Luster and Metallic papers mentioned above.
