Prints are produced by Spectrum Photographic, Hove, UK. The company provides quality services ranging from photographic and giclee printing to museum quality mounting and framing.

Print dimensions are based on the 3:2 ratio of the original image file.  If you would like to purchase a print at a size not listed, be aware that there will be some cropping of the image – but get in touch anyway, and I will see what I can do!

C-type prints:
Fuji Crystal Archive Matt – Professional archival colour paper with a Matt finish.
Fuji Crystal Archive Lustre – A slightly stippled surface with a semi-matt finish and deep blacks.
Fuji Crystal Archive Gloss – A very good base white, with punchy colours.

Giclee Ink-jet prints:
Somerset Enhanced Velvet 225gsm – Made from 100% cotton, a velvety mid textured surface used for fine art reproduction and photography.
Innova FibaPrint White Matte 285gsm – With an ultra-smooth matt surface and brilliant white colour.

What does all this mean? If you want a print that looks and feels like a photograph, with the same type of material you get with normal photo prints, get a c-type. If you want one that looks more like a fine-art print, on paper rather than photographic material, go for a giclee ink-jet print.

What about colour and impact? C-type prints generally have more punch, particularly the gloss versions. If you want something with high-impact, go for a c-type. Giclee prints are more subtle and show great detail in the shadows and highlights.

How long will my prints last? C-type prints are more robust, can be cleaned and have greater resistance to fading in sunlight. Giclee prints are a little more fragile, and offer less resistance to fading – but will still show no signs of fading even after many years!

Normal turnaround times at Spectrum:
C-Type Prints (Fuji Crystal Archive Gloss, Matt or Lustre) – Up to 48 Hours in lab.
Giclee Ink-jet prints – Up to 48 Hours in lab.
