What is a Fine Art Print ?
A Fine Art Print is a term used to describe an extremely high quality print.
Fine art prints are often printed from digital files using archival quality inks and onto acid free fine art paper.
When looking for a print that will last for decades then alway choose a paper that is acid free. It is the acid content in many papers that makes them turn yellow, brittle & crack over time. Our papers are all acid free and made with 100% cotton fibres, this ensures that your print will look as good in many years time as it did the day it was printed.
The printers used for fine art printing are high end machines usually with 8 or 12 ink colourants and therefore have a very large colour gamut. These colours when mixed together are able to produce millions of different colours. They have a colour range than is much larger than your typical large format printer.
Digital files suitable for fine art printing can be in a variety of formats such as those produced by digital cameras, scanners or computer programs such as Adobe Photoshop.
When creating such digital files it is important to ensure that the image is suitable for printing at the required size. For optimum results the images would need to be 300 dpi at the required print size, although if it is a very good quality image then you can often get away with 150 dpi and sometimes less.
To check that your image is suitable for printing follow these simple steps
We will assume that the digital image has been created at A4 portrait size and is going to be printed at A1 Portrait size which is 594mm x 841mm
1. Open the image in Adobe Photoshop.
2. On the Menu click on “Image” then “Image Size”.
3. Make sure the “Constrain Proportions:” has been ticked.
4. Where it says “Document Size” type in the width dimension for A1 Portrait, which is 594mm (59.4cm), the height will automatically update to A1 height which is 841mm (84.1cm).
5. Now look at the “Resolution:”, if it is 300 dpi or larger then your image will print perfectly, if it is only 150 dpi or less then it should still print fine especially if it is a very good quality image.
Remember the final print will only be as good as the quality of the digital image used for printing.
The ideal situation when it comes to fine art printing is to have a good quality digital image at the right resolution which is as mentioned 300 dpi at 100 printed size.
