What paper/canvas/vinyl do you use?

Photo Prints – We use glossy photo quality 250gsm paper for all A3 and A4 prints in order to produce them to the highest standards possible.

Laminated Prints – We are able to laminate A4 and A3 prints for a small additional charge. This involves encapsulating your print in a heat sealed clear plastic, helping to protect against moisture, dust and scratches. Laminated prints also offer the highest glossy finish.

Canvas Prints – Printed on premium 380gsm canvas using the latest latex inks which are scratch proof and UV protected. Our canvas prints are then hand stretched over a sturdy box frame (25mm on A4/A3 sizes, 38mm on A2/A1/A0 sizes). A wall hook is attached for you to hang the finished print.

Poster Prints – Our larger sized poster printing is produced using 220gsm premium satin paper. This is less shiny and reflects far less light than the smaller glossy prints. While still having a sheen, the satin paper allows for better viewing over larger printed areas. The result being a finished print that is much more pleasing under stronger light.

Waterproof Posters – Our outdoor posters are printed on heavy duty 440gsm PVC, which is both durable and long lasting. Ideal for use in outdoor conditions, the outdoor posters are available in A2, A1 and A0 sizes only.

Waterproof Stickers – A2, A1 and A0 stickers are printed on 100 micron self adhesive vinyl. The smaller A4 & A3 stickers are coated with a thin clear laminate. All our stickers have a paper backing which is pealed off to reveal the sticky back of the print which will stick to any smooth surface indoors or out.
