What in a Fine Art Print ?
A Fine Art Print is a photographic print made using superior techniques and materials designed to be used as a work of art. This type of printing is typically done on fine-art quality paper or on supports such as Dibond aluminum, plexiglass, or wood, which enhance the details and colors of the photograph
Fine Art Prints are often produced in limited editions, numbered and signed by the artist to ensure their authenticity and value. They are also often sold with a certificate of authenticity that attests to the quality of the print and the origin of the artwork.
To perfect your work and spark the interest of your audience, it is essential to pay special attention to every step of the custom photo printing process. If you plan to exhibit your art at a festival, it is imperative that your Fine Art Print is of impeccable quality, comparable to that of a professional. In fact, the quality of the print is one of the key elements to ensure that your work is well perceived and appreciated by your audience.
- Choose a Fine Art finish to give a vintage look to your photos and enhance them with elegance and simplicity. Printing photos on Fine Art paper gives your artwork the ultimate authenticity. This exclusive finish uses luxurious photo paper, which is the best option to highlight contrasts and enhance the colors of your most beautiful photos. White borders replace a frame advantageously and draw attention to the contours of the artwork, making your photos the center of interest.
- Choose a glossy Plexiglas finish to accentuate the shine of your artwork printed on aluminum Dibond. This glossy finish helps bring out the colors in your print and enhances the details and contrasts in your photos. It's also ideal for protecting your print from wear and tear over time, thanks to the lightweight and high resistance of the Plexiglas.
A high-gloss Plexiglas finish is especially suited for large format photo prints. You can also add a shadow-gap frame to provide a professional finish and create a wall decoration worthy of an art gallery.
