2. Printing on Deep Matte Paper

Show off your images on a paper that fits your editing style. This luxurious photo paper has a truly matte surface that is silky to the touch. With its elegant, subdued colors, Deep Matte is ideal for skin tones, soft images, and black and whites. Your darkest blacks will appear slightly lighter to reveal more detail.

3. Mounting Your Prints on Styrene

One of the best ways to protect and deliver your prints is by getting them mounted. Styrene is a 3mm plastic substrate that does not warp and can easily be framed or stored. With mounted prints, you can prevent your client's images from bending and creasing while showing the quality of prints you can provide. Styrene is available in black or white and in a variety of sizes.
