Canvas Prints - Epson Archival Inks

The Gallery of Dynamic Realism uses Epson Archival Inks. The ink is pigmented ink combined with Epson MicroCrystal Encapsulation Technology. This allows the ink to carry a high lightfastness for over 100 years, to be extremely stable and waterfast. Each pigment crystal is encapsulated in resin, this gives the ink greater colour gamut (that rivals dye-based inks), with even distribution on the surface of the media, and a higher gloss and smoother image appearance. These unique attributes combine to create an Archival Quality print of enduring quality and beauty.

Canvas Prints - Epson Stylus Pro 9800

The Gallery of Dynamic Realism uses the Epson Stylus Pro 9800 wide format printer. With its Micro Piezo drop-on-demand inkjet technology it ensures that each print is identical to the last in quality and colouration, using its print head configuration with 180 nozzles and 8 colours. The printer prints at a resolution of 2880 x 1440dpi using Epson Variable-sized Technology.

Epson Canvas

The Gallery of Dynamic Realism uses PremierArt™ Canvas to produce the finest archival quality reproductions.. It has a unique durable heavyweight quality that makes it ideal for fine art reproductions. It is pliable enough to withstand stretching for framing without sagging, and displays a subtle texture for a true artistic look and feel.

Paper Prints – Durst Lambda

Since 1936, Durst has been at the forefront of the design and manufacture with its award winning innovative systems for the reproduction of high quality images. The Gallery of Dynamic Realism chose to use Lambda™. The Lambda™ is a laser-based, large-format output device for high-resolution printing of images on photosensitive media. The Durst Lambda has opened up a new dimension in large-format imaging technology and is the benchmark with regard to image quality. The original artworks are supported by perfect reproduction technology, whether in colour or black and white.

Paper Prints - Kodak Professional - Ultra Endura Paper

The Gallery of Dynamic Realism wanted to offer its print collectors extraordinary colour quality, that represents the colour of the original artworks accurately, consistantly and that would complement the three- dimensional image quality produced by the Cruse Scanner. We looked for a media that offered state of the art image stability of at least 100 years and married well with the Durst Lambda process. Kodak Professional - Ultra Endura Paper became the media of choice.
