We use the best quality photographic paper, because the beauty of your print can be enhanced by the textures, touch, tones and the pop of colour on certain types of paper. Our photographic paper includes Centurion 285 photo silk, rag, lustre and also gloss and metallic that make portrait and fashion prints shine. We have cotton rag photographic paper for depth and contrast in street, architecture and B&W photographs.
We suggest photo paper that brings authenticity to your print. And to bring to life the story you want to tell.
Most of our paper range comes in sizes from A4 up to a massive 30 metre x 1.1 metre roll for almost any size print.
Our paper stock includes:
- Hahnemuhle Fine Art Photo Rag 308 gsm
- Innova Smooth Cotton High White 315 gsm

Our specialist Printers are available to meet for all fine art printing. They are passionate, and understand the work and dedication it takes to take a photograph. They are photographers.
When you meet, in person, via Skype or over the phone, our Printers will talk to you about your image, and ask you about the subject, where you intend to hang the print, or who you intend to give it to and in what format.
If it hangs on a wall in your house, it becomes part of your family, telling a story from a time and place; a story about the subject of the photograph, and a story about the photographer. You were there; listening, waiting, and watching the day and scene unfold. You were there choosing your shot, with precision, with care, or simply with a pinch of luck. It’s the story in the image as well as the photographer’s story that makes a photograph beautiful and inspiring.
These are all of the things our Printers want to hear. And once you’ve talked through the image, you’ll talk about where it will live and how it will be displayed. Will you give it away? Will you frame it and hang it in your home? Will it find life in an exhibition to be bought by a stranger who also sees its beauty?
Then the intricate work begins, where you will see the finest quality paper and our specialist Printers will make recommendations for your print. Should it be printed on silk paper or matt? Should the paper have texture and depth, what will give your photograph its best look and feel? We will talk to you about the paper, about how it feels, smells, renders, how it takes the ink, how the colours pop and how tones look.
You will discuss the aesthetic conventions and then you can say ‘forget the aesthetic conventions!’, because it’s all personal. It’s all subjective, and by printing your vision, you will bring the photograph to life. We respect that you’re the photographer, the artist, and this print is another way for you to express yourself.
And then we print.
We also print standard image sizes in our Noritsu c-type lab. These are exceptional quality and processed using state of the art equipment. We print on Kodak Endura Paper in a calibrated environment so your image will be beautiful. We can print to the standard print sizes between 3.5×5” to 12×18” with some customisation available for unique sizes available by cropping the image afterward.
Mounting and Framing
Finishing off your prints is all part of the process.
We supply prints un-mounted, mounted or framed. It’s up to you and how you would like your final print presented.
Mounting is a popular option to finish off your print. It is a professional and stylish alternative to framing, and gives extra support to your print so it will last longer. Prints are mounted flush to the edge on mounting boards. We offer Foam Core and Gator Board mounting.
- Foam Core Mounting is sturdy and lightweight, allowing you to easily hang it without a frame. Our foam core mounts are 5mm thick. This is our most cost effective method of mounting.
- Gator Board Mounting is a sturdier mount. This mount is stiffer, won’t bend with humidity and is less likely to be damaged if dropped. These are great for longer term projects and are a more durable alternative to traditional foam core boards. Our gator board mounts are 5mm thick.
A framed print is a beautiful thing!
We offer glass and acrylic framing, using either black or white frames.
Glass mounting is more resistant to scratching and is best for use in any areas that may expose your print to a high risk of damage. It is heavier than Acrylic so for larger print sizes that will be hung on a wall, you will need to consider a sturdy mounting option. It restricts UV light to extend the life of the print.
Acrylic is a light weight option which is less resistant to scratching than glass but has a higher light transmission rate, making the image clearer in appearance than if it was under glass. It is also lighter so is easier to mount than a similar size glass frame. It has a higher UV rating than glass so your print will have a longer lifespan.
