Fine Art Prints

Who said only professional photographers can make Fine Art Prints, we are here to help you create amazing archival museum quality Fine Art Prints to showcase your work. These prints will last a life time. You can also showcase your photos in exhibitions, plus sell your prints with confidence if required.

Advantages of our archival museum quality Fine Art Prints:

  • 100% Acid-Free, so you do not need to worry about the paper turning yellow or yellow spots appearing on your print.
  • Top quality German manufactured 100% rag (cotton fibre based) paper with the best coatings. Paper weights are 300 gsm, this will give your prints extremely good durability for handling and frame mounting.
  • Three types of beautiful finishes to choose from:

    Photo Rag

    This is a matte paper with a textured almost cloth like finish. It can produce vivid prints with subtle to intense colours, and is great for monochrome photos with deep rich black and a wide gamut of grayscale values.

    Photo Rag Baryta

    Beautiful "barium sulphate" coating with a semi-gloss slightly textured finish. This paper produces a very pleasing look and feel with rich tonal depth and hues.

    Photo Rag Pearl

    This is a smoother gloss paper, images have the look and sharpness of traditional glossy paper but without the distracting sheen of a hard surface gloss. Creates stunning images with great colour and tonal reproduction.

All of our Fine Art Prints are printed using archival pigment inks (vs. dye inks) with fine art digital inkjet printers. So your photos will be reproduced with exceptional quality, and both the paper and ink will easily last 50 plus years.

Frequently Asked Questions regarding our archival museum quality Fine Art Prints:


Q: What is the difference between a 100% rag (cotton fibre based paper) vs. normal paper?

A: Cotton fibre based paper (commonly known as "rags") are the most expensive highest grade fine art papers. Unlike normal paper which is made from wood pulp from trees, cotton paper does not contain the natural acids and lignins in wood pulp that may turn the paper yellow and affect the paper's quality over time. There are high grade "Alpha-Cellulose" wood pulp based paper on the market with the acids and lignins removed, but unless done really well, you still run the risk of affected paper quality. In general cotton fibre based paper also feels sturdier than normal wood pulp based paper.


Q: What is the different between pigment ink and standard dye inks?

A: Dye based inks are the standard low cost inks most people purchase for their inkjet printers. Dye inks are dissolved in a liquid, and when sprayed on to paper usually takes more time to dry and the resulting printing is highly susceptible to water damage. A drop of water on the print will make it smear. Dye ink is also spread only very thinly on the paper surface and is more susceptible to UV rays, so they tend to fade overtime.

Pigmented ink usually consists of a very fine powder of solid colorant particles suspended in a liquid carrier. Pigment particles tend to bond strongly to paper, and is not susceptible to water after it dries. It also forms a thicker layer on paper, and is less susceptible to UV rays, all of which make it much less susceptible to fading. Pigment ink is definitely the better medium if you want prints that are durable and ultra long lasting.


Q: I've heard the word "Giclee" printing? Are URPhoto's Fine Art Prints Giclee or not?

A: In the printing world, there is no official standard that defines "Giclee". It is simply a French word that means "Splash", which some people (probably French) started to use to define inkjet printing, because inkjet is like "splashing" ink on to paper. As time went on, Giclee became more and more synonymous with high quality inkjet printing, but again there is no standard, so anyone can call their prints Giclee. Nowadays when a printer uses the word Giclee, they simply want to tell you that they offer high quality inkjet printing. We know all French words sound sexy and great, but since most people get confused by this word, we simply tell people that we make amazing archival museum quality Fine Art Prints .
