PRINT TYPES: 

This page is to help you know which print type to buy! 

To buy a print...

Note: All bought prints will not have a watermark on it. 

Glossy photos are printed on coated paper with a very smooth, shiny reflective surface. Glossy finishes have a high-contrast appearance and look slick to the touch when not under glass. This finish has an excellent dynamic range and color - slightly more "pop" than the matte paper, though less noticeable once framed.

  • Photos will have a shiny finish.

  • Colors are vibrant.

  • Images are crisp and sharp (assuming the original photo was in focus).

  • Glossy finish does not produce a textured look when scanned and converted to digital.

Lustre paper is the premier paper most preferred by portrait and wedding photographers and is considered more of a professional-grade paper. Lustre has a slight gloss with a subtle, often pearl-like texture. Lustre paper has a deeper color-saturization than matte, has a higher contrast, and is thicker than consumer paper.

  • Fingerprints and smudges are not as visible

  • Anti glare

  • Pro quality paper

  • Great for framing

  • Excellent for wedding photos

Metallic paper is extremely durable and produces an almost chrome-like burnished appearance; photographers have described the look as “chrome on paper.” The glossy finish and metallic look of this paper will enable you to create prints with exceptional visual interest and depth. The proprietary laminate layers also increase the durability and tear resistance of the final print, increasing the opportunities for display applications.

  • Striking, distinctive, eye-catching metallic look

  • Increased color gamut for rich impact and intense blacks to enhance print appeal

  • Exceptional sharpness, brightness, and color saturation

  • Optimized for digital printing

Metal prints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Your images will take on a magical luminescence. You've never seen a more brilliant and impressive print! Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking. Detail and resolution are unsurpassed.

Canvas prints are printed directly onto canvas using Epson archival large-format inkjet printers. A semi-gloss laminate gives the canvas a slightly reflective finish. Note* This is canvas for framing.

Velvet prints are printed on an archival large format inkjet printer on 100% cotton and acid-free paper, velvet prints have a similar look and feel to a watercolor paper. Smooth, beautiful fine art prints.

Float wrap: To create a float wrap, the image is printed and wrapped around a 3/4" gatorboard block, then coated with a protective laminate for a sleek, elegant look. Paper finish is lustre; laminate is matte. Float wrap has a paper backing.

Standout prints are made from lightweight foam (3/4" deep; black edging). Product comes with pre-created holes on the backside, making it ready to hang upon arrival. IMPORTANT: Standout is undersized ¼" from the listed size, so please keep this in mind when ordering images with key detail around the edges.

Gallery wrap Image is printed on canvas and wrapped around a 1.5" frame. IMPORTANT: Because roughly 2" of the image on each side will be wrapped around the frame's edges, this product is best for images that do not contain important edge detail. 

Note: There are two tabs when choosing prints; Prints and Products. Prints are all paper forms and Products are Canvas, Metal, Float etc...

*Special* If you would like a special size and type of print, please contact me directly. This also includes customized framing to your desire! 

Guarantee:  I am sure that you'll be in awe by the photographic detail and quality and that it will meet your highest expectations. However, I understand there's always an element of the unknown when ordering through the internet. So, if you are not satisfied by the quality or appearance of your photo after receiving it, I will gladly refund you, less any shipping charges, if you contact me and return your piece within 10 days of receiving it in its original condition and packaging. Please be careful when unpacking your photo so that you don't bend the photo, or scratch a mounted print on the boxing staples. Carry and transport your piece with care and proper support; I cannot refund you for damages you incur to your piece.

Thank you so much -  Jonathan Zaharek
