Boutique Fine-Art Prints offers custom photographic printing on fine-art papers. We carry 4 papers in stock but are also very happy to print on your paper if you bring it to us. We use a Canon ImageProGRAF Pro-4000 - the finest printer on the market. We use custom profiles generated from 2,000 color samples to extract every last detail from your images. To that end we encourage you to send us 16 bit tiff files using the Adobe RGB or ProPhoto color-space. It goes without saying that our inks and papers are all of archival quality. Our prints will last many lifetimes if properly treated.
Our "standard" papers are anything but standard. Offering as high a quality as any conventional lab on the market our prints really are fine-art quality even for these papers.
Ilford Galerie Prestige Smooth Pearl. This is a 310gsm lustre paper with beautiful detail, clear highlights and subtle but accurate colors.
LexJet Premium Archival Matte. At 230gsm this is our lightest paper and offers an ultra smooth matte surface that holds amazing detail and color.
Our fine-art papers are, in our opinion, two of the finest papers on the market. They hold an unprecedented level of detail and amazing subtlety of color. You will be proud to offer these to your clients or hang them on the wall. With no optical brighteners these paper do not change under glass.
Canson Platine Fiber Rag. This is a truly amazing 310gsm fine art lustre paper that shows subtley and detail like no other paper on the market.
Canson Edition Etching. This gorgeous 310gsm matte paper has a subtly textured surface and holds an unprecedented level of detail in the images with an amazing subtlety of color. Perfect for your fine-art portraits and painterly images this paper really has to be seen to be believed.
If you choose to supply your own paper we will also need an ICC profile for the paper. You have 4 options for that:
- Download the manufacturer's profile for a Canon ImageProGRAF Pro-4000
- Bring and print targets and generate your own profile. You are welcome to bring your laptop and generate the profile at our facility. There will be a $5 charge for the target prints up to 11"x17".
- Have us generate a custom profile using our i1 Studio system. There is a one-time $50 charge for this service.
- Purchase a custom profile from Freestyle in Los Angeles. The charge for this is $120 - $100 passthrough to Freestyle and $20 for us to print the chart, order the profile and mail the test prints to them.
- If you want to handle the paperwork yourself we can create the 11"x17" profile target print on your paper for $5.
