Archival Prints

We provide museum-quality, archival prints that will last for generations if properly matted, framed, and protected from direct sunlight. We also offer Note Cards, Thank You Cards, and custom Greeting Cards featuring our unique images—click the link or see the Products tab in the Navigation Menu for more information.

"Archival" quality of digital prints refers to the stability of photographic images given factors such as inks used (dye-based or pigment-based), media characteristics (coating and absorbency of the material receiving the ink), and environmental factors such as light, moisture, and oxidation.  Dye-based inks are not as expensive as pigment inks, but neither are they as lightfast or as chemically stable as pigment inks.  When framing color photographic prints, only acid-free and non-buffered matting and backing materials should be used.

We use only Epson printers and archival-quality, pigment-based inks.  Our prints are made on archival Epson Ultra Premium Matte paper.  Print permanence testing by Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc. has estimated the longevity of prints using this combination of inks and paper to be at least 110 years (i.e. number of years before noticeable fading or changes in color balance occur) when properly framed and displayed under glass. Our canvas prints are made on 100% cotton matte canvas.  For shipping, our paper prints are mounted on acid-free, non-buffered backing board using acid-free Mylar photo corners for easy removal.  Each print is then placed in a protective acid-free clear envelope prior to final packaging for shipment.  The 4-ply, acid-free, non-buffered board used in our shipping process is archival quality, suitable for use as the backing board when your print is framed.  (We believe framing should be done locally, where your specific needs can best be conveyed and met, and similarly the choice of matting.  Your framing shop can meet those needs best.  We do not offer framing or matting services.)  Canvas prints are shipped unstretched.

Your satisfaction with our photography services and with the beauty and quality of our products is Guaranteed!
