Print Types

Brushed Aluminium Print

Exclusive direct UV-Print on Brushed Aluminium – pure elegance with an exclusive BUTLERFINISH® look.

Metal Prints – High Quality, Extra-Long Durability, Ready to hang.

The photo is printed directly onto a 3 mm thick, sturdy brushed aluminium Dibond with a BUTLERFINISH® look. Two thin aluminium sheets sandwich a black polyethylene core to ensure maximum stability and water resistance. The upper aluminium layer, on which your photo will be printed directly, has the characteristic BUTLERFINISH® appearance. Thanks to the brushed surface, the aluminium backing gives the artwork an extraordinary, metallic appearance. During the production of the cover sheet, the surface is ground horizontally to produce a brushed effect. The result is eye-catching: The areas of the photograph that are white or very light are not printed, but instead, take on the appearance of the brushed aluminium surface. This product stands out for aesthetic reasons, but the material is also extremely robust and durable. Whether inside or in covered outdoor areas, the artwork has the best protection against elements such as direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, and damp.

Ideal for indoor and outdoor use, thanks to UV printing.

The direct UV-print is colour-fast, light-resistant, and even damp-proof. The artwork on brushed aluminium Dibond is therefore not only suitable for indoor areas such as the bathroom or the kitchen, but also for covered outdoor areas protected from rain and direct sunlight.

The aluminium Dibond backing is extremely light, and the practical hanging system ensures it is easy to hang on the wall, even with large formats. Simply unpack the artwork, hang it up, and enjoy its floating, metallic effect on your wall.

Archival Pigment Print

Giclée is the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing technology.

I use only the highest quality acid-free Giclée papers and genuine Epson pigment inks. The Wilhelm Institute and Aardenburg Imaging ranked Epson Pigment Inks in the top three of all archival inks currently in production. The Giclée Print is made on the state of the art Epson Inkjet 11880 using 9 colour K3 pigment inks.

Giclée Paper

I use Hahnemühle Photo rag® 308 and Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta 325 for all my Giclée Print. This is heavy, white, 100% cotton paper with a smooth surface texture that guarantees archival standards. The paper meets the highest industry standards regarding density, colour gamut, colour graduation and image sharpness while preserving the special touch and feel of genuine art paper.

Exceptional quality for exceptional pictures. This is a special High Price GALLERY PRINT Complete with mounting system on aluminium dibond backing.

The high gloss surface and metallic look of the Kodak Metallic paper (235 g/m²) produce photos with extraordinary optical depth and expressiveness. The acrylic glass makes the image appear vivid and vibrant in colour with an extra sense of depth. The acrylic glass that is used when creating these prints is shatterproof and extremely lightweight making it easy to hang almost anywhere.

The aluminium Dibond Backing consists of a black polyethylene core sandwiched between 2 aluminium sheets, and the integrated wall-mounts on the back of the picture make it easy to hang it securely.

Chromogenic Print

Exclusive Chromogenic print (C-Type) on Kodak Endura Pro photo paper (250 g/m²), Fuji Flex High Gloss paper (235 g/m²) and Ilford B/W Paper (190 g/m²) using Océ LightJet laser exposure system. The print includes a white border to allow for future matting and framing. Unframed and rolled in art secured tube.

A Chromogenic (C-Type) print is any photographic print that has been exposed using lasers or LEDs rather than a traditional bulb (in a darkroom). The paper is processed in a photographic developer, followed by bleach-fix before being washed to remove the processing chemicals much the same as in a traditional analogue darkroom.
