What happens when I order a print?

The creation of your print starts with the production of a digital negative from the original image. This is then left to cure, in a dust free environment, for at least 24 hours.
At least three hours before the print is to be made the sensitizer is created and the paper coated. This is then left in a light proof store and left to dry.
The digital negative and sensitized paper are put into a contact print frame and exposed to UV light for anywhere between 90 seconds and 5 minutes, depending on the colour required.
The negative is disposed of and the exposed print is, optionally, humidified.
The print is now processed through a series of baths to develop and fix it. Once complete it is left to wash, in running water, for 30-60 minutes.
The print is then left to dry, for at least 24 hours, in a temperature regulated environment. Once dry the print is embossed with the company stamp and then framed.

Each print is unique as there are many variables which can affect the end result so the prints on this site should be seen as an indication of what is available. When a print is ordered I will discuss with you what your requirements are and aim to produce them as close as possible.
