papers, ink & framing
I have selected 2 high-quality papers for my illustrations...
The modern UV paper from Sihl (135g/m²) is bleached to a bright white and offers the perfect foundation for reproducing the original colours with remarkable richness. A matte coating ensures it is incredibly robust and resistant to changes in temperature and splashes of water.
My printer uses the most modern, super-wide-format printing system from HP. For this premium poster, he uses eight colours, rather than four; light magenta and cyan inks allow additional sharpness, improved resolution, and finer tonality in lighter image areas.
Whichever format you choose, the colours will be equally impressive, the grey balance will be completely neutral, and the contours extremely sharp. After printing, he hardens the inks six times using UV light to make your print resistant to external influences. It will be at its best for years to come.
HAHNEMÜHLE FINEART RAG
The Hahnemühle FineArt Rag fine soft matte surface 308g/m² is one of the most robust papers from Hahnemühle. It is made of 100% cotton and has a matte surface. With its soft and fine texture, this paper is very versatile and is just as well suited to colour prints as it is to deep blacks and pure whites. The Hahnemühle FineArt Rag is an amazing paper for all kinds of images and for high pictorial depth.
Hahnemühle’s authentic art paper is regarded as top of the line. It is often used for exhibitions and limited-edition art prints.
A really beautiful paper, my favourite.
POWERFUL DETAILS AND THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY FOR YOUR PRINTS
The illustrations displayed in the Last Corner shop are carefully produced with the giclée process to maximise colour accuracy and resolution. Giclée (French for “sprayed”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed to saturate the fibres of the highest-quality papers. Resulting in pure, rich colours and remarkable details.
9 colours print using Epson UltraChrome Pro pigments. Extra powerful details with nuanced colour differences
I do not manage the printing of the artwork you will receive. As the printing process being a real art itself, I chose to work with a professional German printing company. This company uses the Epson UltraChrome Pro pigments to ensure the finest tonal gradation. Six colours and three shades of black provide all the nuances and emphasise every detail. Pictures are reproduced at an ultra-high resolution of 1,440 dpi with perfect grey balance. Extremely long-lasting colour that is true to the original.

A2 | 42 x 59.4cm | 16.53" x 23.39"

The illustrations displayed on this site are sold ready to fit A3, A2, 50 x 40cm and 50 x 70cm frames.
My best advice for an affordable and superb rendering is to combine your print with an IKEA RIBBA frame.
The IKEA prices are +/- €9 for a 50 x 40cm frame
and +/- €15 for a 50 x 70cm.
For the A European sizes (A2 or A3), affordable frames can be easily found on Amazon.
It is the best value, nice looking and easiest way to frame your new prints.
