For memories that last a lifetime, choose fine art

What springs to mind when considering “fine art printing”?

What is fine art?’ ‘What does it mean?’ ‘Isn’t it expensive?’ ‘How can it benefit my photography business?’

Well, Team Loxley are here to tell you exactly what fine art printing is and what products it’s available with. Let us be your guide to fine art photography and take advantage of the sample discounts created specifically with you in mind.

Fine art printing is…

Printing on an archival paper that retains tonality, hue and provides longevity in your work that lasts for up to 100 years. Fine art printing is a longer process than that of photographic, with no chemicals used in the inks and a 24-hour drying process that allows gasses to escape from the ink.

The result? A high-quality, archival, inkjet fine art print with a beautiful matt finish.

Fine Art

Created using an increased dot per square inch resolution, fine art printing offers photographers the option of seeing their prints differently. Choosing fine art is usually down to the what a photographer wants from their images. It can depend on the type of shoot, image style and whether fine art printing benefits this.

With enhanced colour accuracy and high-quality images, one thing is certain, it’s clear to identify why fine art printing is popular among so many photographers.

Is it expensive? Far from it. With competitive pricing, quick turnaround times, sizes from 5×4″ to 60×40″ in different formats and papers from industry-leading manufacturers, fine art prints from Loxley Colour are affordable and accessible to all photographers.

How can it benefit you?

Fine art printing can be beneficial to your photography business in a number of ways. Owing to its longevity and tone integrity, it’s the perfect printing option for exhibition work, framed prints, mounted prints, portfolios and more. Fine art printing is also ideal for wedding, portrait, equestrian and vintage photography styles.
