Our prints are made using the finest materials and is of the highest quality. Our thick 300 gram paper we use is from the German based manufacturer Hahnemühle. It is arguably the finest archival paper in the world.
Archival paper refers to the general accepted properties of the paper quality. The paper have to be acid-free should not contain ground wood, unbleached pulp nor optical brighteners which makes paper artificially whiter. In addition to using archival paper for long lasting durability of the paper, environmental factors also play a great part in the permanence of the paper quality.
Acid occurs when a hydrogen ion is released and have a higher concentration of positive hydrogen ions in a solution, meaning a pH value less than 7. A low pH value therefore makes paper more delicate and therefore breaks it down much quicker and more easily.The pH scale ranges from 0-14, 7 being neutral. While a value less than 7 being acidic and a value greater than 7 being basic. Acid-free paper using alkaline chemistry lasts for centuries. Acid-free paper production is more environmentally and economically friendly. The production uses less water, reuses water and secondary fibers while using techniques that saves energy. It makes stronger and more permanent paper.
Furthermore, we use archival pigment inks, all of which allows us to create the highest quality prints. Archival pigment-based inks are made of syntethic organic material, is used for fine art purposes and display excellent color gamut.The use of pigmented inks for the purpose of archival printing is ideal as they can have a storage life up to, and beyond, 200 years; when stored in a museum-quality frame under ideal environmental conditions and lighting.
Our prints are carefully enclosed and packaged to create the ultimate protection while shipping. We include a certificate of authenticity with the limited editions. The certificate includes the artist name, the title of the artwork, the date of production, origin of the photograph and the edition number. We suggest placing the certificate close to the artwork, if not even on the back of the framed artwork.
After receiving your print, we recommend keeping it enclosed in the packaging it was shipped in until the image is framed. In particular, for larger prints we recommend being CAUTIOUS when removing the print from the packaging and unrolling the print as damage could occur if not being careful enough. Ideally the larger prints should be unrolled by a framing professional. Finally, we recommend perfect mounting on foam board when framing images larger than 70x100 cm.
