Prints are produced on Fuji Crystal archive paper with state of the art Fuji Frontier and Durst Theta printers. Machines are calibrated and checked each 24hr cycle to ensure color consistency and quality. Images are also individually corrected for color and density by a human operator.
Special care is taken with all packaging. Prints are re-inspected, and then inserted into a water resistant, acrylic, archival sleeve and packaged in a 28 point, white hardboard package. Orders of over 10 photos will be packaged in a corrugated crush resistant box and will have added hardboard added to the top and bottom of the box to assure safe arrival.
Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper incorporates Fujifilm's latest coupler, base, and tone-control technologies, resulting in superb colors and pure whites together with exceptional color image stability.
Outstanding color stability
Thanks to advanced dye technology, Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper demonstrates exceptional resistance both to color fading and staining, whether stored under illumination or in darkness.
Pure whites, clean highlights
The markedly improved white base used in Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper delivers superb white chromaticity. Pure whites and bright, clean highlights create a dramatic sense of clarity and dimensionality.
Brilliant color reproduction
Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper utilizes Fujifilm's proprietary Advanced V-Coupler technology to offer outstanding reproduction of the entire color spectrum. Especially notable are the new papers' profound reds, clear yellows, and beautiful skin tones.
Excellent reciprocity characteristics
Due to its wide exposure latitude, Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper boasts highly uniform sensitivity and gradation, making them suitable for a wide range of applications.
The dimensions (height x width) of your digital image are not always the same as the print you want to make from it. Therefore, some cropping (trimming) of your original image is often required to make it fit the paper size.
We offer a variety of print sizes and each size may require a slightly different amount of cropping. Also, digital cameras can take images with different dimensions than film cameras, so some cropping is necessary to make them all fit on standard paper sizes.
While the cropping we do may be minimal, it may cut off important parts of the image located near the edge. This is why we offer two options, which are given near the end of the ordering process.
We provide Either "CROP" (cut) the images to the paper size OR "FIT" the images (un-cut/full size) on to a given paper size. You will see a preview during the check out process. If any part of the image is outside of the red box, that part will be cut off. In the case of fit cropping, none of your Image will ever be cut out, but you will inevitably end up with some white space on your print
Some digital camera are unlike traditional 35mm film, which capture images in a 2x3 aspect ratio, many digital cameras capture images in a 3x4 aspect ratio. In order to fit a 3x4 aspect ratio digital image into a standard 4x6 print (based on film's 2x3 aspect ratio), 11% of the digital image is cropped . Our new 4X5.33 format is tailored for cameras that capture images in a 3x4 aspect ratio.
