We create heirloom prints that we hope will stay in your family for generations. For quality control, we do all of our printing in-house so that we can carefully monitor each stage of the process, rather than outsource it to a third party.
All of our images are printed on natural white Hahnemühle 300 gsm fine art paper which is made of 100% α-cellulose that has been refined with a special inkjet coating for fine art applications. The paper complies with the highest archival standards and is suitable for use in exhibitions
The subtly textured, smooth base paper contains no optical brighteners and has a silky, smooth surface texture with a beautiful feel. The satin-gloss premium inkjet coating guarantees exceptional print results with intense colours, deep blacks and outstanding sharpness. The acid and lignin free fine art paper meets the most exacting requirements for age resistance and produces stunning fine art reproductions of black and white and colour photographs.
As an additional layer of protection from external influences, we apply a thin coating to the image. This coating creates a fine film without changing the papers structure. It fixes the pigments and dye in the image and prevents an eventual colour fading. It also prevents the ‘yellowing’ that is often seen in old photographs. The intensity and the high brilliance of the colours stay permanently.
The coating increases the abrasion resistance of fine art papers, so the risk of fingerprint marks and scratches are reduced. This coating also contains a UV absorber and thus offers additional protection against UV light.
All Hahnemühle papers are extremely resistant to ageing and have the highest life expectancy class of several hundred years.
All heirloom prints are presented in bold 1/4" arctic white mattes, sourced from Italy and custom made for our prints. As with our paper, the picture mattes are archival quality and help to preserve your photographs. This is particularly important with regards to framing, as the matte will provide space between the paper and the glass, helping to avoid mould and mildew as well as the image itself sticking to the glass.
It is recommended that you frame your heirloom prints.
