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.
