The art of expression!!
Everybody loves a thank-you card or a photo.

Stefan has made these thank you cards to help you say thanks for helping make my day special. The cards have a hand touched image of your choice printed on fine art, acid free, alpha cellulose, photo paper. If your guests mount these prints in a frame they will have a beautiful 6 inch x 4 inch portrait that they can treasure for decades to come.

Any enlargements you or your guests order will be taken care of in-house. Stefan is able to retouch images to remove blemishes and apply special effects using high end imaging software. Printing will also be performed in-house where Stefan's high end printers, and fully colour managed workflow ensure that individual images are printed without compromise. This is almost impossible using external printing facilities and Stefan prides himself on being able to use his many years of image making expertise to nurse each image from creation through to final print.

Different papers can be used in the printing process and each has its own special qualities. All the papers are produced by British paper mill, Hahnemühle, who have been making art paper for 420 years. The pigments used to print onto the paper have been tested for light fastness and durability under lab conditions. Every print that leaves Stefan's care will give decades of pleasure when mounted in appropriate frames.

SATIN

Stefan uses a satin paper for most printing unless one of the fine art papers is specified. This does not mean it's a compromise though. Stefan has spent as long choosing and profiling this paper as any of the others. What it lacks slightly in heart and soul it gains in affordability so that everybody can afford to have an image professionally printed.

FINE ART BARYTA

325 gsm 100% alpha-cellulose, bright white, Gloss FineArt Baryta is a paper that sets the benchmark for high colour depth, large colour gamut and image definition. This paper gives the "wow" factor particularly to black and white prints with an extremely high dmax and the finest grey tones. The very fine surface texture with baryta gloss coating creates striking black and white images, capturing expressive character and exceptional detail. Coloured images on this genuine art paper also have a spectacular and unique feel, leaving a lasting visual impression on every viewer.

PHOTO RAG

275gsm, 100% cotton, smooth, matt white. Photo Rag is the most popular paper chosen by photographers to create high quality fine art prints. The fine, smooth surface and feel of Photo Rag make this paper very versatile and it is ideal for printing both black and white and colour photographs with impressive pictorial depth.

BAMBOO

290 gsm, 90% bamboo fibre, 10% Cotton, matt texured, natural white. Bamboo is the world's first digital fine art inkjet paper made from bamboo fibres. Bamboo represents spirituality, naturalness and resource-saving paper production. Particularly suitable for warm-toned colour and monochrome prints, Bamboo really highlights the sensuality of images. Hahnemühle will donate a fixed amount from the sale of each sugar cane paper product towards environmental projects. See www.green-rooster.com.

SUGAR CANE

300 gsm, 75% bagasse fibre, 25% cotton, smooth, natural white. Sugar Cane combines the high standards of a FineArt inkjet paper with responsible use of raw materials. A “bagasse” pulp is used that is a by-product of raw sugar production. The cotton portion is made from recycling Hahnemühle's own paper waste. Sugar Cane lends every image an artistic look and feel. Hahnemühle will donate a fixed amount from the sale of each sugar cane paper product towards environmental projects. See www.green-rooster.com.
