Printing Media

Sejkko artworks are available in two printing media. The first is the classical, museum-quality, fine art cotton paper. The chosen paper brand is Hahnemühle, a company funded in 1584 that has worked continuously in the production of the best fine art papers available.

The look of sejkko prints in Hahnemühle paper is velvety, with saturated and vibrant warm tones, particularly yellows and reds, with very pastel almost muted blues and pinks.

The video below shows acclaimed portrait photographer Platon speaking about the importance of the chosen paper in bringing art to a physical tangible object, and his own choice of Hahnemühle paper.

When choosing to acquire fine art prints on Hahnemühle it is strongly recommended that they are framed by a specialist. They are experts in working out the perfect “micro-climate” to create for the paper-based print. This way two things are achieved: (1) the print is shown at its best  (2) the print is protected from potentially harmful environmental conditions, namely humidity and UV radiation.

The other printing medium available is novel, and ground-breaking: Chromaluxe Art.  The printing  process uses a technique of dye sublimation  to transfer the digital source image to a slimline aluminium plate. Then the print has a matt, gloss (and soon, semi-gloss) finish applied. These 1.2mm thin metal prints have an intense colour depth and vibrance, which has been often compared with the now extinct Cibachrome prints.

Chromaluxe is perceptually very different from fine-art paper prints. Images on chromaluxe are perceived as having very fine detail, and a deep sense of three dimensional presence,  as if they were being lit from the back. The fact that no front glass is needed — indeed very discouraged — also impacts on how chromaluxe Art prints are perceived. The video below shows the Chromaluxe stand at Photokina 2016.

 

The Art Print Families

Sejkko’s online shop for limited edition fine art prints currently contains six format families that combine sizes, and printing media in very specific ways. Each family has a set limited edition upper bound (max. number of certified copies). This determines the final price of each print in a given family.
