What type of paper is the photograph printed on?

Our prints can differ depending who the artists is, but most prints are Digital Pigment prints on museum-quality acid-free papers such as Museum Etching, Canson Rag and Arches Velin. These papers are designed to meet galleries and museum longevity requirements and ensure consistency of shades 200 years old. The choice of paper is suggested by the Photographer according to his or her preferences.
In some cases like Andrea Modica and a few others, the artist is producing his/her photographs in other methods, like platinum process printing.

What is the printing process used?

Most of our prints are Digital Pigment Prints using the latest top of the line technology, archival high dynamic inks and 200 years old life paper. In the case of Platinum prints or other specific ones, the details are explained on the artist profile page.

Are the prints signed by the Photographer?

Not all the time, if the photograph is not signed, instead the Photographer signs a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) which accompanies each print. The COA protects the security and genuineness of your limited edition print. But in other cases you get a signed print and a COA signed as well.

Why do the edition quantities change depending on the print size?

The smaller print sizes are produced in larger editions to make them more widely accessible and to make then quite affordable. Each photograph is available in one to three formats, depending of the artist choice. The large-scale print size is produced in a small limited edition (3-10) making them more valuable because of the limited number available.

Is the image size the same as the paper size?

No. Our prints are on different paper sizes and we don’t alter the image size and proportions to fit the paper. Each print has a minimum 0.5 inch white border. Artists are the one making the decision on the final print size according to their work vision.

Will my print look exactly like what I see on my screen ?

The Print Atelier aims to achieve accuracy between the photographs you see online and your final print. However we cannot be responsible for minimal differences deriving from reproduction techniques that may exist between the presented image and the print. Computer screens may differ and the colour and contrasts of the image on the screen may not look exactly like what you receive. This is because different types of monitors are calibrated differently. Also, any prints with a soft focus or texture work (grain, spots, etc.) were created that way for artistic purposes.
