Inspire your clients to invest in Fine Art.
Updated on Jul 15, 2023
Photographers need to differentiate themselves from their competition on both a professional level and consumer level. By simply upgrading to Fine Art Prints you can make it your specialty and have the marketing advantage. There’s no equivalent product than a fine art masterpiece from you.
Why Offer Fine Art Prints
Our selection of Fine Art papers is significantly different than what your clients can find anywhere on their own. Designed for high quality digital fine art reproduction, these papers will remarkably enhance the visual brilliance of your images, keeping them beautiful for years to come. With a luxurious feel and substantial quality, you’ll be sure to standout from the competition.
Printed through a process known as Giclée, water-based pigment ink is laid down in tiny dots on the surface of cotton or cellulose papers. Fine Art Printing includes 9 ink colors, which allows for more accurately represented images, with a wider dynamic range and deeper darks in the details.
With archival cotton rag papers and archival inks, Fine Art Prints will last for over 100 years.
Produced at our highest archival standards, its no surprise they’ll be loved by those who already appreciate fine art and are looking for that museum-quality product. But what about your average photo print clients who may be cost conscious? They simply won’t know what they’re missing until you show them. High-end papers have a greater perceived value but can still be affordable. Through WHCC you can offer any of our five fine art paper options at a price to attract any client, while you make an additional profit and enhance your brand.
