Photographic Prints

Seldex photographic prints are available in a large range of sizes from 2½ x 3½ to 32 x 40".  All photographs are printed using wide format Canon printers on our Signature Seldex Fine Art matte paper, Canon Lustre paper or Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper.  

Our printers use Canon's LUCIA EX pigment inks which combine the glossiness of dye ink with the vivid colors and weather resistance of pigment ink.  For the 12 LUCIA pigment inks, in addition to CMY ink colors, Canon developed special complementary RGB colors and two shades of gray, realizing an expanded range which enables greater overall balance. With LUCIA, vivid colors can now be achieved on a variety of media types.  The new LUCIA EX pigment ink system increased the color reproduction range by up to 20% by using more vivid pigments for all 12 colors and through the use of pigments with a variety of particle diameters. Furthermore, Canon has successfully produced a dark black using an ink design for raising the grade of black in order to meet the demand for high image quality from professional photographers and creators.

If you are a Photographer, Illustrator or Artist we can take your images to the next level. These papers are suitable for photographs, Fine Art reproductions, exhibition prints and much more.

What is the difference between the Seldex Signature Fine Art Matte paper and the Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper?

Our Seldex Signature Fine Art Matte paper is a warm,very smooth matte paper weighing 230gsm.  The Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper is a white,100% cotton paper with a slightly textured surface weighing 308gsm.  Both papers meet the highest industry standards regarding density, colour gamut, colour graduation and image sharpness while preserving the special touch and feel of genuine art paper 

How should I handle my Fine Art prints?

Your prints are "fine art" and therefore handled as such.  Treat them as though they were an original painting as they are not as durable as lustre prints.  This also means fine art printing should be stored away from moisture and direct sunlight unless protected by acrylic like in our Mietta Frames.  When handling it is advisable to wear cotton gloves so any natural oils on your hands do not transfer to the print.

Can I order a custom size? 

Yes you can!  Just make sure to crop it to the size you want, make sure the dpi is set to 300 and save it as a jpeg.  When you go to order it online make sure to select the next biggest size from our list and in the comments box make a note of what size you want the print to be printed at.  You will be paying for a larger size print but you also get the exact size you want.

Can I have a border on my prints?

Yes!  But you will need add this border to your prints in Photoshop prior to ordering them.

Tips for uploading files.

Your files must be cropped and colour corrected prior to sending them to us.  If you prints are the incorrect size or dpi and they are printed then you will be charged for them.  If you are unsure how to correctly crop or size your photos in Photoshop please contact our sales team.

How long will my prints take?

Typical turnaround for photo prints are 3-5  business days from your order being processed.  This takes longer than traditional silver halide prints as the prints need to be individually trimmed and 100% dry before they are touched.  If you require them urgently please make a note in the comments box when placing your order and we will try our best to accomodate you.

Wait! Just one more step before you place your order.
