Premium papers and archival inks are used to ensure high quality prints that will last more than 100 years in a typical home display. Colors, tones, contrast, sharpness, and vibrancy are retained for beautiful image reproductions.
I do press checks in person at the photography lab. This extra step allows me to make sure the colors, tones, and contrast in my images is accurate and consistent. Press checks also let me make sure the paper type and dimensions are correct.
