Images really become photos once they're printed on paper.

 

Images become photos once they are printed on paper or other material. Kleurgamma features a variation of printers like the Epson and Canon inkjet printers for the numerous Fine-art paper types. A Lambda printer for actual photopaper. An XL printer for bigger work outdoors and indoors like wallpaper, Outdoor banners, etc. We can make Analogue prints up to 50x60cm. We also make match prints to prep images for CYMK printing.

Fine-art printing on Epson & Canon printers

The term Fine-art was evoked in 1767 from the freely translated word ‘beaux art’. The term refers to beauty and taste in all thing nice so therefore not all unusual it’s used to describe this high end printing process. The Piëzo technique is being applied to these high end Epson and Canon printers combined with highley specialized fine art papers gives the ultimate end result in colour saturation, scale, black covering and the display of pastels shades.

Manufacturers have worked hard to enhance and guarantee the lifespan of a print. The durability is of course a vital part for photographers, artist, museums and galleries to choose a certain product. ‘ 100 years’ colour resistant is what’s promised.

Maximum width varies per material from 110cm to 150cm wide.

We print both on Epson and Canon printers.

Papers range from Epson Satin, Gloss, Matte to Hahnmuhle Photorag, Baryta Pearl and Gloss and Duopaper for printing double sided for books. We do add new kinds of papers to our assortiment feel free to inform about this..

New paper: Awagami Paper, this is a Japanese rice paper.

Matchprint

If you need your image to be perfectly translated to a book or magazine that will be printed on CYMK printers, you will need a good conversion and we have the tools for that process. Paper, ink and screens when taken in on the Pre-press traject will behave according the standardised criteria for printed matter. An optimised Epson/Canon printer (7 colour technologie connected to RIP software) simulates the printing press. Kleurgamma prepares the image within the iso-coated norm. The correct conversion from RGB to CYMK and the making of  ‘matchprint’ with a densitometrical strip will make sure your images will be correctly printed at the press printer.

Matchprints are made in the sizes  A5 to A3+ size.

Lambda printer

Digital printers are essentially photo enlargers. These machines are able to enlarge a digital image on conventional photo paper with it’s laser technique. The digital image will come across as analogue as a hand enlargement. These prints are eventually developed in the standard ‘chemical’ RA4 process.

The light-jet photoprinter makes ultra detailed photos on a wide variety of material from classic photo paper to duratrans material. The maximum printable size is 127×300 centimeters.

Materials are: Photopaper Satin, Gloss, Highgloss, Duraclear and Duratrans.

 

Analogue handmade optical print.

We still offer analogue hand prints. Your images are corrected and personally adopted to your taste. We have both colour as black and white paper up to the size 50×60 centimeters.

X-Large

These XL printers make it possible to have sizes printed that are not reachable with our conventional printers. Think of whole walls, billboards, wallpaper banners, floor tiles, curtains, flags  that can make a big impression. The materials are uv protected and can stand the elements so the last outdoors.
