***** These four foot wide "High Definition" prints were created to be reproduced at this width. This is the reason for the excellent detail, sharpness and color saturation that you'll see in every print. These are the most detailed aviation prints at this size you can find!
The A-12 was the forerunner of the SR-71 and has nearly the same shape and dimensions as its replacement. Designed to replace the U-2, the A-12 flew higher and four times as fast to outrun enemy defenses and gather intelligence. The A-12 is primarily an over flight vehicle unlike the SR-71. Its major advantages in capabilities to the SR-71 include its higher-resolution photography and its ability to go marginally faster (Mach 3.3) than the SR-71. However, the SR-71 was chosen as successor to the A-12 due to its side-looking radar and cameras, allowing it to gather important reconnaissance data without penetrating enemy airspace.
How They're Printed - His four foot wide (HD) mural prints are not printed using any inks.
To reproduce the fantastic detail and saturated color, these aviation images are printed using actual red, green and blue lasers that can produce 68 billion colors. The lasers project the image on actual photographic material and then is processed through chemical baths. This gives you a TRUE HIGH DEFFINITON (HD) CONTINUOUS TONE IMAGE with no dots like you see in offset lithography printing. This printing method is far superior in detail and color depth than any other reproduction method.
We offers these prints on two types of (HD) Archival material... or Canvas
✔ One... A very high gloss for the best detail and color saturation ✔ Two... A semi-gloss for a very sharp and more muted feeling ✔ Three... On canvas. These canvas prints are printed with archival quality inks onto a unique impregnated glossy canvas media. This allows for the highest color saturation and detail you can achieve in a canvas print. The Giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction on canvas. The quality of the Giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
