      How are images shipped?

      How are the prints made?

      The fine-art prints on Vintagraph are produced in the USA on large-format, commercial printers made by Epson. We use archival inks recommended by the printer manufacturers to guarantee the highest-quality images.

        What type of paper do you use?

        Our prints are museum-quality, made using top-of-the-line, piano-size commercial Epson printers with 10-color Ultrachrome inks and premium 100% cotton rag, acid-free archival papers. Each print is individually inspected before shipping. 
            • 8.5x11 and 11x17 prints have .50-inch borders 
            • 19x13 prints have .50-inch borders
            • 22x17 prints have 1 inch borders
            • 30x24 SPECIAL EDITION prints have 1.5 inch borders: Printed on heavyweight 100% cotton rag, acid-free archival paper. This is 76% bigger than a 22x17.
            • 50X36 MAGNUM prints have 2 inch borders: Printed on heavyweight 100% cotton rag, acid-free archival paper. Twice as large as 30x24. May be longer based on image dimensions.
            • 44x61 canvas prints have 2 inch borders.
            • Exhibition CANVAS: Heavyweight Exhibition Gallery Canvas prints have slightly wider borders for stretching. Canvas prints are not stretched or framed.
            • METAL SIGNS: Printed without borders and use as much of the sheets as possible. But because each image has unique dimensions they may not completely use the full sheet. For example, a square image ordered in 12"x18" metal would be 12"x12" when completed. A more vertical or horizontal image would use up more of the sheet.

        About Borders

        Most of our images proportions will not exactly match the paper sizes, so printed sizes vary depending on the dimensions of the image. All paper and canvas printed images have borders, as specified above. Because the proportion of the images usually do not exactly match the size of the paper, there is usually a wider border on one side.

        If you buy a mostly square, or extremely horizontal image you will have much larger borders on one of the dimensions of the paper. In the case of extreme proportions we will always give you the largest possible image based on the paper you purchase. Extreme, unprinted borders may be trimmed on our end to reduce waste.

        Here is an extreme example with a nearly square image, showing the wider borders on the left and right. The white area represents an 8.5x11 paper with .5" borders on the top and bottom.
