The benefits of our digital pigment prints over traditional photographic prints and fine art print techniques
Our process has several advantages:
Colleen Barry, 'Mama'
Brooklyn Editions specializes in archival digital fine art printing for a wide variety of applications. Our studio is committed to making the highest quality fine art prints possible and giving our clients a sense of control and consistency. Our studio is tuned to the needs of professional artists and those who need superior quality prints.
We specialize in archival digital pigment printing — also known as giclée printing. Our fine art prints are produced with pigmented aqueous archival inks that provide the perfect combination of exceptional permanence (longevity) and the widest gamut of colors. Our technology and instruments are regularly calibrated and color managed to exacting standards of accuracy.
Our printers lay down fine droplets of ink to allow for great detail, smooth natural gradations, and excellent tonality. The papers and media used are acid-free, and coated with invisible micro ceramic coatings that help the ink on the surface remain sharp, and allows the paper to hold heavy ink loads to maximize bold colors and depth.
The resulting fine art prints have vivid, true colors, with deep blacks and amazing contrast. The lifespan of these prints can last centuries if kept in optimal conditions, and our range of archival papers provide a wide variety of paper options to complement and enhance any work.
Our substrate collection includes beautiful smooth and textured matte giclée papers, bright white photo rag, natural fiber rags, darkroom worthy baryta papers, high gloss photo papers, rice papers, canvas, linens, as well as acrylic face mounted prints. Our studio can provide the tools to create a successful print, project, or exhibition.
