Print Prices

All the prints we make are archival to museum standards. We have two grades of paper, "premium" and "fine art". "Premium" refers to the premium papers offered by Epson for their printers. They are archival and print exceptionally well.

 

Fine Art papers are the more expensive 100% cotton rag and alpha cellulose papers in much heavier weights and with different characteristics. Our standard fine art papers are Hahnemühle Photo Rag and German Etch, Innova FibaPrint® Ultra Smooth Gloss plus  matte and satin canvas.

At additional cost we also carry other papers from from Innova, Hahnemühle, Canson (Arches), Crane Museo and Canvas from Innova, Fredrx and Epson. We stock most of these papers in 44" widths. They are only available in strips of 44" wide with a minimum of 12". We hate to waste paper so this encourages the use of the full width of paper.

We also carry a wide range of specialty paper including rice papers, fabrics and other weird substrates including PhotoTEX and Tyvek (great for wallpaper), Mylar, clear acrylic film and a host of other materials. Click here for a complete list.

Surface mounting

Our mounting process is archival, permanent and non-reversible. We use a cold, roll fed pressure based laminating press with a white high tack permanent solvent-based acrylic, which has an opaque white liner.

Face Mounting

Face mounted prints can be the perfect compliment to a work and provide a modern clean look for your work which appears to float off the wall.

Prices include everything including the print and all mounting hardware (except screws). If you compare it to having a work printed and framed  the prices look pretty good!

Contract Printing

 

We are a print-on-demand shop which, for most customers is perfect. You make a print, declare an edition and only need to print the work when it sells. We have successful editions which are still being sold many years after we made the first copy.

If you need all of your edition at one time we can offer special contract pricing.

For wall coverings we offer special pricing for PhotoTEX and Tyvek at $5.00 a square foot. Minimum 100 square feet and priced per roll. Available in 36", 42" and 60" widths.
