Harman Gloss Fiber Base (320 gsm)
Harman Gloss FB Al is a heavy-weight (320 gsm) fiber-base photo paper with an Alumina coating ensuring a high degree of surface finish, optical image density and vibrancy. The Baryta layer gives the prints greater detail and definition and the look and feel of air-dried silver gelatin photographic paper. Available in a bright-white base, it is simply the best photo-type paper we have tested!
Moab Entrada Rag Bright/Natural (290gsm)
Moab Entrada Rag is a single-sided award-winning art paper made of 100% cotton and exhibits a bright surface to bring both photographs and artwork to life. This naturally acid- and lignin-free paper offers an expanded color gamut, maximum contrast and high ink load that is particularly compatible with our archival pigment inksets. 290 gsm paper weight. Available in Bright and Natural.
Printing requires at least 1/2″ of border on all sides of the image; more is better. Set your files up accordingly. Pricing is based on paper size, not image size.
Lexjet Sunset Select Matte Canvas (430gsm)
A heavyweight (430gsm) canvas with an acid-free, pH-neutral coating with a high white point. The bright-white, matte-coated surface of this poly/cotton blend canvas provides the wide color gamut and color-consistency needed to fulfill a wide range of art-reproduction and photo printing requirements while facilitating stretching and other forms of finishing and display. The relatively smooth Oxford weave is ideal for photo and art reproduction.
Pricing for canvas prints is based on canvas size rather than image size and on the roll widths of 24”, 36” and 44”. Discuss your framing options with your framer; in most cases you will need at least 2” of material around the image to accommodate stretching: and up to 4” if having a “gallery wrap” done. We can provide various treatments for additional image on the sides of a “gallery wrap”. If your final canvas size is not listed, we can quote on a case-by-case basis.
Since most canvas prints are not displayed under glass or plexi, our pricing includes 2 coats of Premier Print Shield, UV, Water Resistant Lacquer.
Water-Resistant Satin Cloth
Water-Resistant Satin Cloth is a bright-white cloth that is perfect for backlit and point-of-purchase displays, window shades, banner stands, and table skirts that need to stand up to the test of time and provide visual impact. Water-Resistant Satin Cloth provides an expanded color gamut for hard-to-hit colors, and higher ink saturation for richer, more brilliant color. Drapes well.
Satin Cloth comes in 36″ and 44″ wide rolls. Any length can be printed; call for pricing. Pricing is based on cloth size, not image size.
