All prints are made
digitally using archival
quality inks and paper. Digital printing affords the greatest
reproducibility of the final print. Today’s inks and papers provide
image stability rivaling the best
chemically processed prints. Today, these qualities have led most
commercial photographers to adopt
digital reproduction as the method of choice for fine-art printing.
Digital reproduction of fine-art prints requires a printer of
highest quality. At Touching Light
Photography, all large-format prints (8” x 10” and larger) are
produced on an Epson 7600 pigment-based wide-format printer, using customized color profiles to
provide accurate color-matching and the
widest color gamut. All of our “giclee” (inkjet) images are printed
on Epson Premium Luster Photo
Paper using genuine Epson Ultrachrome (pigment-based) inks for the
longest lifespan. Postcard
prints are printed with genuine Epson DuraBrite (also pigment-based)
inks on Epson DuraBrite Glossy
Photo Paper. Postcard prints are produced on an Epson Printer
with Epson DuraBrite pigment-based ink.
At Touching Light,
most prints are available as signed, limited edition Prints. To
different needs of our customers, each print will be produced in two
or three sizes, as specified for
each print, and will be limited to a specified number of prints in
each size. For example, our largest
prints, 24” x 36” (borderless) may be produced in a limited edition
of 25 prints at 24” x 36”, 25 prints at
18” x 30”, and 25 prints at 12” x 18”.
The term “limited edition” refers only to the original, signed
prints (produced by the giclee printing
process described above. The images produced in limited edition
prints may still be used by
Touching Light Photography in other print forms, such as books,
magazines, or postcards.
Limited Edition prints will be signed, dated (year) and numbered
with archival ink, and are typically
signed on the image near the lower right (most common) or lower left
corners. If you would prefer a
signature on the back of the print, or in the margin, please specify
in your order instructions.
