Location: Gullfoss, Iceland
Would you care to explore, slipping and sliding along the ice to fall to the water below, the roiling and rumbling winter waterfall? I'd imagine not - but the way the sun shines off the ice is beautiful, is it not?
Printed on Giclée Epson Semi-Gloss
What print sizes are available? What about borders?
Currently available are metric print sizes, which run:
- A5 – 210x148mm
- A4 – 297x210mm
- A3 – 420x297mm
- A2 – 594x420mm
- A1 – 841-594mm
Each print comes with a 5% border, so for each print size, that will be different. For example, the border for the A5 print is 10.5×7.5mm or slightly less than half an inch by a quarter of an inch.
US 8x10 prints are available, they will be processed in the next 4-6 weeks for sale.
What kind of paper are your photographs printed on?
All prints are printed on archival quality paper using C-Type or Giclee printing. Favoured papers include Fuji Matt, Epson Semi-Gloss and Hahnemühle Pearl. Details of the paper type will be included for each print.
Can I buy the print from you framed?
At the moment, no, though the printer I work with (The Print Space) is planning on releasing this in 2022.
How long will my photographic print last?
Both C-Type and Giclee papers are archival quality and made to last. When displayed in average daylight conditions properly (framed, under glass, with pH neutral mounting paper), C-Type has a lifespan of about 40 years, Giclee about 80. In dark storage in an archival box, C-Type sits at about 80 years, Giclee, about 200. Of course, this is in ideal conditions. Factors that could affect your photographic lifepan include:
- Exposure to high heat sources
- Exposure to bright light sources
- Exposure to moisture through humidity
- Atmospheric pollutants
- Storage conditions
