About Fine Art Prints
Fine art prints, that are very popular today, are the printed forms from digital files making use of acid-free fine art paper to put the print on and archival quality inks. Take a look at the various features of fine art prints:
- The printers used in this process are high-end machines that are of latest technology and designed to give the best results. These machines have around 8 to 12 ink colorants present that provide a wide range of colors to bring over your painting. These colors create millions of other colors when mixed together which is a much larger range than a typical printer.
- The paper involved in these prints are acid-free so that they can last for years. You must have noticed that many papers over time turn yellow in color along with getting brittle and cracking. This is the very reason acid-free papers are used which are made of cotton fibers ensuring that your picture in print remains as good and new as the day it was printed, too many coming years.
- The digital files that are suitable for fine art printing are in a variety of formats. But it is crucial that when creating the digital files, the size of the image is appropriate. A good quality image can get away with 150 dpi or less while for optimum results, you better go for 300 dpi.
