Open Edition Prints
Photographic archival prints have a typical longevity of 100 years in home-display conditions. I have personally tested the color accuracy and quality of the digital images from the lab. All prints come in either glossy or Fiji Lustre finishes and are printed on Kodak Endura Professional Paper. Glossy has the most vibrant colors with a highly reflective finish. Lustre also has vibrant colors but is a less glossy option. It is my personal favorite.
Premium Canvas Gallery Wrapped Prints
These fine art prints are printed directly onto canvas using professional archival large-format inkjet printers. This differs from the more traditional method where a canvas print is made from a photographic print. In this process the photo is bonded to a piece of canvas fabric using pressure and heat. It does not have the same longevity nor quality presentation as printing directly onto high-quality canvas.
Premium canvas has a tight and consistent weave similar to the texture associated with an artistic canvas. It has a semi-gloss laminate with a slightly reflective finish. Premium Fine Art Canvas prints include sawtooth hangers and bumpers with paper backing.
Mounting gives your prints a sturdy backing, making them easy to frame, apply directly to a wall using 3M Command Strips or display on an easel. We offer mounted prints with a Fuji Lustre surface which provides a matte finish and layer of protection to a print’s surface.
We offer two types of mountings (see photos below):
3/4″ Black Standout
Sleek and slightly textured, Black Standout is a black plastic edging that encases lightweight foam.
3mm White Edge Styrene
One of the most popular and dependable mounting surfaces. Despite being only 3mm thin, styrene is not susceptible to bending or warping.
Limited Edition Archival Pigment Prints
Taking a photo is only part of the process required to bring you world class fine art. What happens after the image is taken, including digital processing and the materials used in printing, are equally important. We have an unwavering belief that an investment in fine art should come with an assurance from the artist that only the finest materials and processes are used. At Ben Shyman Photography we are proud to say we never cut corners, ever!
Giclée prints use pigment inks and differ from traditional inkjet prints which predominately use dyes. Pigment ink lasts longer, up to 200 years without fading, and can display the full-color spectrum. The specialized printers used to manufacture Giclée prints have the sharpest detail and highest resolution. It is no wonder that Giclée prints are often referred to as museum-quality prints.
Hahnemühle Photo Rag Baryta paper is a pure cotton, acid-free paper with an inkjet coating that has been optimized for the needs of fine art applications. It has become the paper of choice for discerning photographers and collectors of fine art as it sets the standard for color depth, color gamut and image definition. It is a no-compromise-paper deserving of the highest quality pigment inks.
All Limited Edition prints come with a white border which allows for signature and numbering as well as room for your framing professional to properly matte and frame your print.
