What paper do I use?

Paper is a personal choice. We suggest using regular to heavy card stock (150+gsm). If your Print is being framed we recommend Premium Matte or Luster/Semi-Matte paper.

Premium Matte - Produces a more natural flat muted image. Well suited for black and white Prints, light or pastel colors and emphasizing texture. This is a good budget option that produces beautiful results when framed with glass. A popular brand is Epson Ultra Premium Matte 5 star paper.
Gloss Photo - This paper is shiny, giving depth and a clear sharp image that makes colors pop. It is well suited to images with high contrast or full color photography. It is reflective and can produce glare which can be exaggerated behind framed glass or in areas with lots of lighting. Gloss is often used for poster prints intended to hang directly on a wall unframed.
Luster/Semi-Matte - This has a lustrous sheen that is a nice balance between matte and high gloss. It can add a soft sparkle and produce vibrant color - ideal for prints of water or prints with large areas of dark color. If you are unsure about using either matte or gloss this is a good in between choice.
Cotton Rag - This produces a vivid, textured and slightly warm softened look similar to watercolor paper. Our favorite is Somerset Velvet 100% cotton rag paper (255gsm) printed with archival ink. Most cotton rag papers are made using recycled materials making it a good environmental choice.
** TIP - If printing at home look for an online paper supply store offering ‘sample packs’ which are a cost effective way of buying only a few sheets to test out different paper types.

Where can I print my files?

The final result will depend on the quality and calibration of your printer, ink and paper.

Home - Make sure you disable any color management settings or automatic color correction. Select ‘Print at original size’ or ‘Print at 100%’ and select the highest print quality setting.

Professional Print Service - For best results we recommend using a professional printing service either locally or online.
