High-end Fine Printing:
Origin Publishingoffering the highest quality Fine art reproduction and archival giclée printing for artists and photographers and anyone else that needs or wants the best.
Caloundra Framing recommends a number of Printers depending on the type of service required. Just ask us and we can help you organise your files for general everyday printing.
Information on printing methods used by print companies.
Xerox or colour copy (cheap and look ok. will fade and often have lines or variations in areas of colour)
Large format printing dye based. (will fade. looks identical to pigment based)
Large format printing pigment based. (will last for approximately 70 years with little variation in certain lighting conditions.) (this is the preferred type of print for picture framing.)
Emulation based photographic printing. (mostly done by labs now)(easiest way is to ask what the life of the printing is before placing the order)(this is also preferred for picture framing so long as it is long life)
Once you have the print on canvas or paper or we have helped you source the print all our custom picture framing is done onsite.
Printing Needs vary greatly and print use range from decorative short term display through to high end archival long term display.
Please ask us and we can help you understand what type of print to get and how to combine the type of print you have, with the perfect glazing solution for best care and protection of that image. This is really important as all light fades images not just sunlight so you have to choose the right sort of print and the right glass for the application.
If you haven’t framed before let us help you organise an image and design a framing package. We will help you choose the right glass and we guarantee you will come back happy and confident the second time ready to frame your second piece without any doubts getting the level of protection and enjoyment you require.
