Different Paper Options for Fine Art Printing
There are various paper options for fine art giclee artwork and photography printing, including a fine art glossy or matte printed finish. A matte finish will deliver a shine-free look with distinctive textures to help bring out rich colors and black hues, while a glossy finish will make your images shine.
At Tribeca Printworks, our matte and glossy finishes include
