Printing

We're able to print your work onto a variety of different media types, e.g. photographic paper, museum etching board, photo rag paper, etc. Our professional printers enable us to print from a small sized paper up to a width of 44". The calibrated printers have an extremely wide colour gamut and this allows the ink droplets to produce high quality printing and this procedure is often known as giclée.

We've used different manufactures and if asked for we will; however what is shown is based on PermaJet media types. They're highly recommended in the industry.

The media types aren't a one-of-price meaning you'll see different tables and the main headings explain which paper. Below the tables there is a summary, written by PermaJet, of the paper types. The prices were updated on the 4th February 2021.

You can post us your digital images on any form of external memory device (returnable with the prints) or, via infoATalb-framing.com or info.albframingATgmail.com (change the AT to @), attach it to an email and a conformational reply will follow. If you're e-mailing more than one, please don't send all on one e-mail as transmission isn't always wonderful.

Gloss: A superior, heavyweight, high gloss media of 271gsm with a true photographic feel and finish. This is definitely the whitest based gloss paper of any similar inkjet surface in the marketplace. It has a resin coated paper base and is finished with an instant-dry, UV protective, microporous supercoat giving it a high degree of water and fade resistance.

Ultra Pearl: Its super pearl finish is unbelievably reminiscent of a laboratory print on Crystal Archive paper or the traditional pronounced pearl finish used in school photography prints. It is instant dry with high water resistance and its super tough surface offers scratch resistant and anti-scuff properties that exceed anything else in the inkjet market for a paper of its type. The application of a microporous UV protective coating on its heavy 295gsm base is designed to give your image the maximum longevity and robust protection in any environment. Using PermaJet's very own IPL (Image Protection Layer) technology, a special "scan-resistant" layer has been applied to the paper surface to make illegal high quality scanning reproduction virtually impossible.

MattPlus: A clean, white, smooth matt paper with ultra image sharpness and a really smooth surface. At 240gsm, the extra weight gives this paper a soft, sumptuous feel and appearance as well as deep and crisp colours. The exceptionally low metamerism in this paper gives it high credentials for the monochrome specialist.

Alpha Natural Rag: A 100% cotton rag paper with a natural white 310gsm base - the ideal, heavyweight, giclee fine art reproduction media. This acid-free, matt surfaced paper provides the feel and appearance of traditional art materials. It has a very high gamut volume and exceptional ability to return good skin tones, rich deep blacks and vibrant, sharp colours. There are no optical brighteners (OBA's) used in its manufacture, making it very stable under any viewing conditions.

Fibre Base Gold Silk: These improvements have been made to meet our customers needs, helping you achieve prints with exceptional true to life colours and beautiful monochrome tones, with pin-sharp details, a wider tonal range and an exceptional record-breaking Dmax. PermaJet FB Gold Silk is a true baryta paper and has a sumptuous feel with a Silk Gloss finish on a fine art heavyweight base of 315gsm. This inkjet paper has been developed with a natural base tint to emulate the surface finish, texture and coating of traditional darkroom baryta/fibre based papers, making it the perfect choice for the serious monochrome worker. And, the great news is, you can still use your existing older FB Gold Silk ICC profiles without the need to create new ones. The smooth gloss coating has been applied directly onto a true baryta layer and fibre base enabling its users to create intense, velvety blacks and subtle, creamy whites - the perfect combination for outstanding portraiture and landscape reproductions, whether in monochrome or colour.

Museum Heritage: An outstanding textured fine art paper displaying a lovely rough weave with random undulations. Our ultimate matt inkjet coating technology has been applied to the mid-white, 310gsm alpha/cotton mix base resulting in highlight and shadow detail never seen before for such a media. It is totally acid-free, water resistant and with an impressive scuff-resistant coating avoiding 'flaking' seen on similar papers. Excellent D-Max and print sharpness make this unbeatable for most types of work requiring a textured finish. As the name suggests, it has all the attributes to meet the museum standard of inkjet printing. Ideal for galleries, museums and photographers who intend to create fine art prints in colour with a high degree of detail and pronounced texture. 100% Pigment and dye ink compatible.

If you have film negatives or transparencies we can print them in either a digital print or use the chemicals and traditionally print. The price for digital printing is the same as above, however sadly we cannot currently digitally print large format cameras' negatives.
