We use the highest available print technology to meet our quality requirements. Our EPSON P9900, fine art printer with Epson UltraChrome® HDX 10-Color pigment ink, use a sophisticated and patented printing process known as “giclée,” from the French “to spray.”
The process delivers a precise stream of ink to saturate the fibres of the acid-free paper, resulting in pure, vibrant colour and remarkable detail. We guarantee that the pieces will not fade, or yellow even facing direct sunlight and will remain light resistant for up to a century.
Fine art prints are made on 310 gsm Hahnemühle. This heavyweight etching board is velvety smooth with a fine surface texture.
Photographies are printed to 290 gsm bright white premium photo paper with 110% whiteness with gloss 15% @ 60°. The result is a unique silver pearlescent finish with stunning visual impact and depth.
Regular posters are made on 180 gsm photo matt paper.
Simply Petrol prints come in three sizes. From Small to Large, starting from 50×32 cm (20×12 inches) and reaching 100 x 70 cm (40×28 inches) in size. The most common frames are a perfect fit to M sized prints with the format of 70×50 cm (28×20 inches).
White border helps your artwork to “breath” and “glance”. We leave up to 2 inches to each side also to allow for future framing and matting, if desired.
Unpacking & Care
For maximum protection of your art, we ship the product rolled in cardboard tubes. Remove the cap and gently slide the print out. Find a large, flat surface to uncurl them. The surface should be clean and clear of debris to prevent any damage to the print. We recommend to place objects on each corner of your copy and let it sit for a couple of hours. Ones uncurled you can frame it or store it between two flat cardboards.
When framed keep the poster print away from fluorescent lighting and direct sunlight, and areas with high humidity. At best in a room with an average temperature between 18 – 23 C.
