Print Information – Sizes and Materials

Information and details about fine art prints by Matt Mikulla. Including print materials, paper sizes, and recommended framed print sizes.

Print Materials

My prints are my art, craft and my legacy. All prints are made with the best materials available and crafted to archival and museum standards.

Papers and Surfaces

Papers used are archival and signature worthy. I usually choose a paper best for each image and size. I consider the choice of paper equally as important as the image.

Inks

To be a true fine art print the inks used must be pigment based and archival. Normal office printers generally use dye bases inks that fade significantly faster than pigment inks.

Unless noted otherwise, I use Epson UltraChrome pigment inks that are designed to work in harmony with my papers and resist fading over long periods of time when displayed properly.
