Q&A Session

  • Can you share about the longevity of the archival matte papers and how they are compared to the other papers?
    • Overall, all of the papers that we offer are of archival quality which can last up to 100 years. The archival matte is a museum-grade quality product as well so, it will last a long time under normal conditions. We don’t recommend putting it against the sunlight because it can affect the coloring over time.
  • As a photographer, what is the best between the archival and semi-glossy print?
    • Archival and semi-glossy are some of our most versatile paper types. They can work through all different types of designs (except for typography on semi-glossy paper).
    • The archival matte paper would be perfect if you’re going for more poster-like or movie-type photography.
    • The semi-glossy is great for photography in general, as it brings out the vividness of your image more. Sunny photos are great for semi-glossy as well, as the shine compliments the brightness of the photo.
    • Overall, it’s a personal preference on how you want your prints stylized. You can also reach out to us and order samples of the print in different paper types if you’re unsure of what to get.
  • Please tell us more about your bleed options. Does it cut off anything of our image? Do we need a bleed on our image as well?
    • The bleed option on our website does not cut off your image. What it does is add a border around the image itself. Adding borders to images helps create a focal point and can be visually appealing, especially when framing the image.
    • Adding bleeds also prevents frames from hiding parts of the image.
    • In our new website, there is a built-in image editor with options to shrink or snap the image to fit within the given space. For paper prints, we recommend shrinking it in to keep the original image.
