Understanding Photo Prints and Paper

I wanted to include this guide to better assist clients with print selection.  All of the below listed paper and finishing options are offered by Halkett Photography through MPIX Professional Photography Laboratories.  Your selection of paper and finish can truly make a difference in the appearance and overall quality of your photograph.  Your selection can also increase the durability and extend the life of your print.

Our panchromatic, resin-coated paper proves a true digital B&W print should be the standard, not an exception. It is designed to make rich black, continuous-tone prints – while avoiding color tints. And by using a silver-based emulsion vs. dye-based, this papers imaging performance and characteristics are the same as traditional B&W prints.
