Prints - Paper Types - Custom Printing
Are you interested in purchasing a print of my photographs? I offer a number of different paper types, sizes, mounting and framing options. Prints can be purchased by emailing me. Prices vary by size and printing surface. With the exception of the MetalPrints and Wrapped Canvas, all prints will need to be matted and framed after purchase, unless matting and framing are chosen at the time of ordering. Merchandise such as cups, mouse pads, etc are also available in the shopping cart.
Printing done through Visual Journeys Studios is done with only 'Pro Photo Labs'. Pro grade archival papers are used, files are properly color balanced, burned and dodged so the utmost in a professional photo is what you will receive from us.
All of the images on Visual Journeys Studios website are color balanced on an Apple Cinema Display utilizing Datacolor's Spyder Pro 3 color calibration software, burned, dodged, sharpened and closely scrutinized before being uploaded, guaranteeing the most accurate color and image quality that is available today.
Lustre is the paper type I recommended most when people ask which paper to print on. Lustre has the color saturation of glossy paper but with the fingerprint resistance of matte. Lustre also does not have the glare that is associated with glossy paper. Lustre is a professional-grade paper, printed on Kodak Professional Endura paper and is materially 'thicker,' or heavier, than consumer paper.
With a glossy finish and unique metallic appearance, these prints have extra visual interest and depth. They are printed on long-lasting Kodak Professional Endura Metallic paper. When people ask what Metallic paper looks like I often say it looks like "chrome on paper." It produces striking, three-dimensional, lasting images with extreme sharpness, brightness, and color saturation. I recommend metallic paper for all of my black and white photos or any of my photos that contain water, rock, or vehicles.
MetalPrints are photos printed directly on a sheet of specially coated aluminum! MetalPrints are highly durable, waterproof, and ultra scratch-resistant. MetalPrints have vibrant colors and incredible detail. Each MetalPrint comes backed with a 3/4" thick foam block that makes these stunning prints appear to float off the wall. The beauty of MetalPrints is that they do not need to be framed; they are ready to hang on your wall as soon as you receive the print! I recommend this for anyone who does not want to deal with the hassle of matting and framing a photo.
Giclée Prints (pronounced "zee"-"clay") are made with high-quality archival inks on fine art papers using a high-resolution large format inkjet printer. The premium inks produce images with smooth tones and rich colors, making these prints ideal for extraordinary presentations. Prints are printed on a heavy, 310g paper with a subtle texture. This acid-free paper is 100% cotton fiber and is finished with a water-based protective spray. Due to the stunning colors and matte finish, your print will take on the look of a masterpiece painting.
Printed on heavy duty PremierArt Water Resistant Canvas, then finished with a dry lamination process that is UV and water resistant. The canvas is stretched and then wrapped over a 1 3/8" thick wooden frame. Your photo extends to cover the sides of the frame for a beautiful presentation. Wrapped Canvas prints are ready to hang on your wall.
