“I love your product and the quality is incomparable to anything else photo related I have ordered in the past.”
— Alix, Nevada
Built by a publishing art director and a designer, we are insanely obsessed with the printed product. Recently magazines are extraordinarily high-end.
Here are the materials we have hand selected for their known quality.
We print exclusively on Mohawk Paper. Mohawk is a third-generation, family-owned, US manufacturer that is constantly renewing its commitment to environmental stewardship.
THE PAPER WE USE:
- 100# Vellum Uncoated Cover
- 100# Vellum Uncoated Interior Pages
- FSC certified
- Acid Free
- Made with Windpower
THE INK WE USE:
HP Indigo ElectroInk
ElectroInk enables high quality, wide and accurate color gamut, sharp images, and color with gloss closely matching the media, similar to and at times surpassing conventional offset printing, and exceeding the quality achieved by competing digital printing technologies.
More than 75% of photobooks worldwide are printed today using ElectroInk on HP Indigo’s high-quality presses. To confirm the longevity of papers printed with ElectroInk, the prints were submitted for testing to an independent print permanence institute, Wilhelm Imaging Research (WIR).* The results verify the permanence of HP Indigo prints on display for up to 54 years before any noticeable signs of fading or changes in color balance, ahead of the top silver halide paper Fuji color Crystal Archive, and much longer than standard silver halide papers. HP Indigo photobooks received an album/dark storage rating of greater than 200 years,compared with a maximum rating of more than 100 years for silver halide solutions. HP Indigo is the only digital press manufacturer that has published print permanence results from independent, third-party testing.
