FAQs

We don’t just load up your digital image and press "print". Each image is checked closely for colour, tonal balance, and image details.
We take the time to work with you and make sure the final product is something we’ll both be proud of.
Our professional-grade Epson Stylus Pro 4900 printer uses 11 colours of archival ink to print high quality prints up to 17″ wide, and pretty much as long as you like.

 

Originally, "giclée" referred to a particular printing technology using a high-resolution industrial printer. Nowadays, the term refers more generally to inkjet-based printing technology, but especially for high quality, fine art prints: use of multiple archival inks that boast rich colours and resist fading; extremely high printing resolution to provide tremendous detail; and use of beautiful archival-quality papers to print on.
We print on ink-jet photo paper, archival fine art paper, and canvas from a variety of paper companies including Moab, Epson, Hahnemühle, and Ilford. If you are interested in printing on a certain medium (such as metallic papers), ask us and we'll see what we can do.

print mediums

180-220 grams / square inch. Matte, pearl or glossy finish.

Similar to conventional photographic emulsion paper ("C-prints"), this paper is smooth and can have either a matte, pearl, or glossy finish. Paper weight is 180 - 220 grams/square inch. We can also print on specialty metallic papers. All our photo papers are archival and resist fading.

12 cents / sq. inch
200 - 300 grams / square inch. Smooth to slightly textured surface.

Fine Art paper is fibre-based. It has a texture that varies depending on the paper. It is heavy and particularly good for graphic work, black and white photos, or more minimalist images.

15 cents / sq inch
up to 395 gsm, matte or glossy

Canvas provides a heavy, texture-rich surface for your images. Many people are struck by the "painterly" quality of photographs on canvas. We treat all our canvas with a protective coating that also adds a luminous sheen to the piece, which can be further enhanced by more glossy top-coat.

19 cents / sq inch

See our custom framing section below for more on canvas stretching and framing.

 

custom framing

You can have your print framed with us, too. Frames are hand-made and unique, with a wood and/or stain chosen to go well with the image it is designed for. Canvases, photo prints, fine art paper, or even fabric art works: we'll craft something to showcase your image.

FAQs

To get started, e-mail or call us to tell us what you'd like to have framed. We'll discuss options for framing and follow up right away with a quote. Once you give us the go-ahead, expect 3-5 days turnaround.
Wood. From tight-grained softwood like yellow cedar to expressive hardwoods like curly maple, mahogony or dark walnut, each frame is distinct. We can also do inlays to further enhance the frame.

Yes. For some projects with unusual dimensions or requirement it might take a little while to source the materials, but we'll take care of all that when we quote you a price.

Depending on the size of the job, your frame will take between a few days to two weeks. This includes time for any stains or varnish to set.

framing options

minimum canvas size: 12" x 12"

Frames for canvas are built to allow a narrow recess between the edge of the canvas and the frame edge so that the canvas edge recedes into the back of the frame.

Prices start at $100

Fine art paper prints can be framed either with a matte border, or float-mounted against a foam-core backing, allowing for a subtle shadow to be cast. Frames built with this technique are a little deeper.

You can also have your prints mounted on a wooden panel or composite material using archival-grade adhesive. A simple and strong way to present images.
