Frames & Finishes

From Inspiration to Artwork

An artwork consists of many details and individual work steps. The most important, of course, is the motif. If the motif is not convincing, no opulent frame will help. But choosing the right finish to match the motif is an art in itself.
The artwork itself is ultimately the sum of all the parts.

Photo Papers Menu

For a motif to develop its full impact and radiance, it needs the right medium on which to be printed.
The longevity and durability of a paper are also crucial for the artwork to remain unchanged for many decades.
There are many different printing methods, and even more different papers.

Here we reveal all about the printing methods and papers used by Mari Prete for her artworks.

Finishes Menu Image

The finish is the refinement of the printed motif for optimum protection, durability and presentation.
In this step, the presentation method is chosen to ensure that the motif can be hung in a form-stable manner and is protected from external influences for a lifetime.
There are various methods and techniques to achieve that.

Here we reveal all about the refinement techniques used by Mari Prete for her artworks.

Frames Menu

Framing is the final touch to complete the masterpiece. Besides the presentation variant without framing, there are countless frame variants and possibilities to frame the work of art. The decision on the materials used, the size of the frame, the ornamentation, all this ultimately has an enormous effect on the presence of the work in the room.

Here we reveal all about the frames used by Mari Prete for her artworks.

Classical Photo Papers

When it comes to preventing halftone in photo prints, no printing technique is better than classic exposure on light-sensitive photo paper. Motifs by Mari Prete on classic photographic papers represent the traditional, the "classic" photographic art. These papers are exposed with state-of-the-art lasers and then developed in the traditional way. The photographic papers used meet the highest standards of colour fidelity, contrast and, above all, durability.

Fuji Crystal DP II is Fujicolor's high-quality photo paper for gallery prints and the minimum requirement for Mari Prete's works.

    FineArt Pigment Prints

    Solvent-free inkjet printing is a proven printing technology from the field of fine art. The brilliant colours are produced by the pigment particles suspended in the liquid ink. In order for these to unfold their effect optimally, also a specially developed paper is required. The use of fine art paper adds a textural depth to the print, giving it a more painterly, tactile quality.

    Acrylic FineArt Print

    The acrylic fine art pigment print is a giclee print that is laminated under acrylic glass. For this a special paper is used with best color reproduction properties, but without texture.

    Although this paper is suitable for all sizes, Mari Prete uses it almost exclusively for large format prints, for which there is no classic photo paper available.
