Why it is important that the print media be acid and lignin free:
Lignin is a chemical substance found in wood that bonds (glues) cellulose. Lignin breaks down over time, turning the paper or canvas brown and releasing acids.
Acids make paper or canvas deteriorate, disintegrate, and become brittle over time.
We use ONLY acid-free, lignin-free materials throughout.
Epson Stylus Pro 9880: Because of Epson's leading role as the defining brand for commercial-grade printers, we use this professional wide-format printer, which incorporates forward-thinking designs, with a newly enhanced 9-color ink technology, resulting in a final print of uncompromising quality.
It uses Epson UltraChrome Ink technology, the standard by which all other professional-level ink technologies are judged. Now enhanced with Vivid Magenta pigments, this newest-generation ink technology uses 9 colors, including a three-level black technology, to significantly raise the quality levels for professional color and black-and-white prints.
By employing this particular printer, we can produce archival prints with amazing color fidelity, gloss level, and scratch resistance, while providing consistently stable colors across current & future print runs. The high level of ink droplet accuracy, makes for a pixel free image.
NOTE CARD ENVELOPES: White, 70LB, Vellum Finish (parchment like).
OCÉ VARIO LASER: Laser printing is a popular type of computer printing that uses a non-impact (keys don't strike the paper), photocopier technology. When a document is sent to the printer, a laser beam "draws" the document on a selenium-coated drum using electrical charges. After the drum is charged, it is rolled in toner, a dry powder type of ink. The toner adheres to the charged image on the drum. The toner is transferred onto a piece of paper and fused to the paper with heat and pressure.

Note that all paper prints have a 1/2" mat border allowance around the image, meaning that an 8 x 10 print (for example) would be on a 9 x 11 cut sheet ... If more border is required, perhaps to accommodate a caption (for example), we can work with you on that for a small additional charge per print.
Note also that all paper prints are packaged in clear seal bags with backing boards for support.
