In the golden age of digital photography, there lies an intimate space between the vivacity of pixels on a screen and the tactile beauty of a printed image. It’s in this chasm that the true mastery of photography reveals itself. Printing, while an age-old process, is not just about transposing an image onto paper but invigorating it with an additional layer of life. At Beyond Print, we stand at the precipice of this chasm, offering a bridge to transition seamlessly from the digital domain to the realm of tangible artistry.

The Evolution of Print Technology

The lineage of printing photographs is rich and variegated. From rudimentary techniques of yore, like the daguerreotype, we have now metamorphosed into advanced, precise methods. Giclée Printing, a technique we proudly employ, utilises sophisticated inkjet printers. These marvels, with their capability to disperse inks in a myriad of colours, render photographs with unparalleled depth and vibrancy. On the other hand, the venerable C-Type Printing is a chromogenic process, bringing out images with unrivalled clarity. This method involves exposing light-sensitive paper to RGB lasers, producing a latent image that’s then developed using chemical processes. For professionals adamant about accuracy in colour reproduction, our CMYK Proofing is nothing short of a revelation. By isolating and printing individual colour channels – Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (Black) – one ensures the zenith of colour fidelity.

Moreover, as technology progresses, so does our commitment to harnessing it for artistic expression. Understanding the nuances of each method ensures that the resultant print captures not just the image, but the soul of the photograph. By marrying technology with artistic intuition, the printed photograph becomes more than a simple replication; it evolves into an art piece, replete with emotion, detail, and vibrancy. As we navigate this ever-evolving landscape, we remain dedicated to offering our clientele nothing but the pinnacle of print technology.


The Subtle Art of Choice: Paper and Frame

Selecting the right medium for printing is as pivotal as the art itself. We believe in using nothing less than fine art paper, which lends a depth and texture that standard papers simply cannot match. The weave of the paper, its absorbency and finish, are all key determinants in how an image will ultimately be perceived. Furthermore, bespoke framing takes the artwork to unprecedented heights. A frame is not just an enclosure but a statement of style and personality. At Beyond Print, our dedication to this craft ensures that each frame complements and elevates the visual narrative of the photograph. It’s a harmonious marriage between form and function, where the aesthetics never undermine the integrity of the art.

In addition, there’s a narrative in the choice of material, with each frame telling a story that aligns seamlessly with the photograph. From the lustrous sheen of mahogany to the muted elegance of driftwood, the frame augments the print’s narrative. Our bespoke framing service gives voice to these silent tales, allowing the photograph and frame to communicate in perfect harmony. The art of selection, therefore, becomes a journey of understanding and complementing, ensuring that every image is framed not just in wood, but in sentiment and style.
