I've worked hard to provide a range of qualities and affordabilities when it comes to having my images printed for you.
I highly recommend having my work printed on Giclée Fine Art Papers (my personal preference is Hahnemühle Photo Rag) though I'm happy to arrange anything which might prove more appropriate.
Hahnemühle papers provide durability as well as wonderful colour rendition and no reflection (perfect for framing).
Obviously this quality comes at a price and consequently I have discovered the benefits of Fuji Velvet Professional, as the name suggests it has a velvet quality which vastly reduces the reflective surface and makes for affordable yet stunning reproductions.
Finally I use Fuji Pro DP II Lustre as my go to photographic paper 😍

Have a look at how the paper you choose effects the way an image can appear under certain lighting conditions 😍
"Hahnemühle Photo Rag is one of the world’s most popular papers and the valued all-rounder for high-quality FineArt inkjet printing.
The white cotton artist’s paper, with its characteristic, wonderfully soft feel, boasts a lightly defined felt structure, lending each artwork a three-dimensional appearance and impressive pictorial depth.
Combined with the matt premium inkjet coating, this paper produces outstanding prints that feature brilliant colours, deep blacks, striking contrasts and perfect reproduction of detail.
This acid- and lignin-free classic meets the most exacting requirements for age resistance and is specially designed for FineArt applications."
All my prints are produced on 308gsm Hahnemühle Paper.
Or to give it it's full name ... Fujicolor Crystal Archive Professional Velvet Paper 😍

I've found that the Fuji Velvet ticks all the boxes, from quality to value for money ... if you've never had an image printed on a Giclée Fine Art Paper and you don't plan on investing the money to find out how amazing the quality is, then Fuji Velvet is for you 😁
Again, it's full name ...
