FRAMING AND FINISHING OPTIONS


     

    PAPERS

    • The standard paper used for all prints is the renowned Fuji Crystal DP II. This is a leading photo paper for gallery prints, with an extremely wide color gamut and a 75-year non-fade expectancy. It is available in matte or glossy options, both in 220 g/m. 
    • If you have a preferred paper stock from other manufacturers, please send us an email and we will discuss the options for your custom printing needs. 

     

    WOOD FRAMES

    • A classic framing solution, in a museum-quality presentation. The wood frame is made of black solid oak or white solid maple, and the passe-partouts (mats) in natural white are made from the finest, non-acidic, light-resistant museum card stock – guaranteed to be free of wooden fibers.

    • From all the different options for protective glasses, the gallery chose to use exclusively the best possible one in the market: the non-reflective Mirogard museum glass by Schott is arguably the highest-quality frame glass for art presentations and a perfect complement to the wood frame. This glass choice virtually eliminates distracting glare and unwanted ambient reflections.
    • All frames are delivered ready-to-hang, with pre-mounted, metallic hanging elements integrated into the frame. 

     

    ACRYLIC GLASS FRAMES

    • Modern and elegant, the acrylic glass mounting is today a favorite of galleries and interior designers all around the world. The print 'floats' on the wall, and adds a timeless look for photos of any kind. The gallery offers two options for all acrylic glass prints: glossy and matte.
    • The glossy acrylic glass has a width of 1/8” (4 mm), for maximum depth, unrivaled brilliance and crisp details, and is the perfect choice for interior ambients where light from nearby sources is not an issue. Due to its inherent characteristics, this crystal-clear type of acrylic glass is highly reflective.
    • The matter acrylic glass option virtually eliminates reflexions and glare, and looks extremely and subtly elegant in all types of ambient. It has a 2mm width, making it also an ideal option for smaller rooms. 
    • Both the glossy and the matte acrylic options have a 1/8" (4 mm) aluminum Dibond backing, consisting of a black polyethylene core, sandwiched between 2 aluminum sheets coated platinum-white. A triple-layered composite material, it ensures stability while maintaining a low weight, and is ideal for a gallery-quality presentation in any format. This backing ensures stability and durability, and make oversized and panorama formats possible.
    • Permanently elastic silicone is the ideal way to bond different materials. It seals and protects, and is also elastic enough to compensate when materials expand and contract as the temperature changes. It is a top of the line solution for durable mounting that won’t blister or crack.
    • The integrated wall-mount consists of a sturdy bordering aluminum rail on the back of the picture, making it easy to hang it securely.

     

    METAL PRINTS

    • Another contemporary framing alternative, aluminum metal prints have a very distinctive look and add value to colorful and high-contrast images. The gallery offers two distinct alternatives for its metal offerings: HD Metal Print and Photo Print on Aluminum Backing.
    • On the HD Metal Print, the image is first mirrored and printed onto a transfer sheet using Fine Art inkjet inks. Then, in a process involving high pressure and heat, the print is steamed from the transfer sheet into the aluminum’s special coating, where it is permanently sealed in. The process is called dye sublimation, and it allows for the rendering of exact details and brilliant colors with excellent durability.
    • The HD Metal Print aluminum is 1 mm thick and has a special, transparent coating, making it a straightforward and durable substrate for all images. These prints are easy to handle in any size or format. They are also weatherproof and not affected by extreme fluctuations in temperature.
    • Photo Print on Aluminum Backing is a process where a UV protective laminate is applied to the photo print. It helps prevent fading and is long-lasting, due to the high-quality of the laminate (protection against UV rays and dust). Each print is mounted on a 1/8" (4 mm) thick aluminum Dibond backing. 
    • As it is the case with the Acrylic prints, both Metal print options come standard with aluminum bordering rail for an easy and versatile setup. 

     

    PRODUCT INFORMATION
