Vivid Color Reproduction
Color saturation and reproduction while printing on paper needs to be considered when printing fine art. Our prints are put on display in homes, at businesses and at shows. Using paper that is bright, allows prints to deliver vivid color that spans the color gamut.
The intensity of color within our images is what we refer to as color saturation. When a color appears ‘dull’, it means that there is a low color saturation. The higher the saturation means that the purer the color appears. This pure state of color can also be described as ‘brighter’. If you want to receive a ‘wow’ factor with your art, then your viewers will react more with a saturated color than with dull colors.
Red colors are associated with danger, courage, heat, passion, anger and love.
Some cultures use red to celebrate victories, symbolize happiness, good fortune, nobility and wealth. When you consider using art in your decor, try complimenting bold red colors with black, navy blue and light blue, white and even yellow.
Yellow is a color of life and its complimentary color is purple. Although yellow is a ‘secondary color’, it is intense in its ability to accent art. Consider an autumn picture without yellow, or a refrigerator lacking a banana or lemon. Flowers to canaries, food to leaves supply many shades of yellow.
More Brilliant Whites, Clear and Detailed Highlights
Without white, there is only shades of grays. Are black and white even colors? To us they are.
Can you tell the difference between ice cream white and solar white? There are many shades of white, and the paper determines how bright the white shade can get.
More Natural Skin Tones
Skin tones begin with a pigment called melanin, which starts with at least 6 genes. We all have melanin, but there are 2 basic forms: eumelanin (dark brown to black) and pheomelanin (red to yellow).
Our skin colors are are affected by the sun, tanning and skin care. We want to provide as accurate of colors in our fine art pieces so that you can see colors of skin.
Lifelike Texture and Sharpness
We all want to look at the sharpest images available. When watching TV at home, we adjust the sharpness control so that our movie is clear and the image is enhanced. In photography, we desire to make our image have the greatest detail that we can reproduce. Sharpness is a zone between different tones or colors. Wall Art pushes the limits to create crisp edges, and remove blurred edges.
