About Our Paper
We use mould-made 100% cotton rag, acid-free archival papers or heavyweight Exhibition Gallery Canvas.
Paper sizes are in inches. If an image's dimensions don't exactly match the paper's dimensions there will be a wider margin on the narrowest side. The long edge on prints 34x47 and larger will vary depending on the dimensions of the photo and may be longer than the size listed.
All of our prints come with a margin: 8.5x11 and 11x17 prints have .50-inch margins; 19x13 prints have 1-inch margins; 22x17 prints have 1.5 inch margins; 30x24 Special Edition and 47x34 Magnum prints have 2-inch margins. Canvas prints have slightly wider margins for stretching.
