Photography, at its core, is an art of perception and expression. The click of a shutter immortalises a moment, capturing its essence in a visual story told through light, colours, and composition. But a photograph’s journey from digital image to print is equally integral to its narrative, one that’s often underappreciated. This is where professional printing and framing services, like those offered by Beyond Print, come into the frame. We understand that every pixel in a photograph sings a harmony of artistry, painstaking effort, and technical skill. Our mission is to ensure this harmony is heard resoundingly clear, enhancing its beauty through our state-of-the-art Giclée Printing, C-Type Printing, and CMYK Proofing services, complemented by our bespoke framing. All of this is available at your fingertips through our convenient online ordering system.
Transforming Pixels into Print: The Power of Professional Printing
Photography evolves into its most authentic form when rendered from the digital realm into the tactile reality of a print. The subtleties of shadow, the nuances of colour, and the power of contrasts find their deepest expression in physical form, a transmutation Beyond Print understands profoundly.
Our Giclée Printing service is the discerning photographer’s first choice. Giclée, a French term meaning ‘to spray’, denotes a process where microscopic dots of pigment-based ink are sprayed onto archival quality paper, rendering an image with superior colour accuracy and detailed gradation. It’s a method celebrated for its longevity and ability to represent the widest possible gamut of colours.
But sometimes, your photography might demand an alternative approach, and that’s where our C-Type Printing service comes into play. C-Type prints use light-sensitive paper and a chromogenic process to produce images that are incredibly sharp, with a continuous tone and vibrant colours.
For professionals requiring precise colour representation, our CMYK Proofing service ensures the digital design’s colours match the print output accurately. This comprehensive array of services ensures that the soul of your digital art is preserved and enhanced when transposed to print.
Framing Your Vision: The Art and Science of Bespoke Framing
A frame is not just an aesthetic appendage to a photograph; it’s part of the photograph’s very story, shaping the viewer’s perception and interaction with the image. Framing provides a spatial and visual context, subtly guiding the viewer’s eye towards the image’s focal points. At Beyond Print, we appreciate this delicate interplay between frame and photograph, which is why we offer bespoke framing services.
Our frames are custom-made, ensuring that every piece complements the photograph it encases, while simultaneously echoing the taste and personality of the artist. From choosing the moulding style and colour to determining the mount size and type, every aspect is meticulously designed.
Furthermore, our professional framing extends beyond aesthetics, safeguarding the longevity of your print. We use archival-quality materials that protect the print from damaging factors such as UV light, humidity, and airborne pollutants. By choosing Beyond Print, you ensure that your work isn’t merely displayed, but also preserved.
The Symbiosis of Aesthetics and Longevity: Fine Art Paper Explained
One often-overlooked aspect of print photography is the medium upon which it’s rendered – the paper. At Beyond Print, we believe in the beauty and durability of fine art paper. This special grade of paper is renowned for its ability to reproduce vivid colours and exceptional details, all while offering superior archival properties.
Fine art paper is crafted from cotton fibres or alpha-cellulose, making it resistant to degradation over time. Its matte surface reduces glare, enhancing the viewing experience, while its textured finish adds a tactile dimension, making each print a joy to touch.
Crucially, fine art paper’s substantial weight offers an impression of quality and permanence, an essential factor for professional photographers and discerning homeowners. By choosing fine art paper, you don’t just get a photograph; you acquire an heirloom, a piece of art that withstands the test of time, carrying your visual story into the future.
