LIMITED EDITION PRINTS          

 

All photographs in the gallery are sold as limited editions only. Photographs on paper are offered as limited edition of 10, also fthose on canvas are sold as limited edition of 10. Each of the images is restricted to a small print run, guaranteeing that your investment will retain a certain exclusivity. Once the run limit has been reached no further prints of that image will be made.
                    
Each print will be accompanied by a signed Certificate of Authenticity. This will provide both proof of ownership and details of the print itself, together of course with the photographer's signature.

You cannot buy these prints in your local factory shop or high street chain, so you can be confident that you are putting something on your walls which will be as individual as you are.    

 

PRINTING DETAILS


All the prints are produced at one of the Prague's leading professional printing houses by the giclée method. Giclée prints tend to have much more accurate colour than standard prints and, providing they are mounted behind glass, are light fast for up to 200 years. The quality of a Giclée print is so high that they are used in museums and art galleries.


We use Epson Pro Stylus 9900 which is one of the best printers in the world. Designed to deliver the highest quality output achievable in today’s aqueous large format printing market, it features Epson’s 11-colour Epson UltraChrome™ pigment ink system and innovative printing technology to produce prints with increased accuracy and an extended colour gamut to fulfil professional users’ demands for more sophisticated print quality.

You should also know that exposure, colours and contrast of prints can differ from what you see on your monitor. It is because your monitor has not been calibrated. In order to see images the way they were intended to be seen, your monitor has to be calibrated. Calibrating provides a screen display that simulates what you would see on paper.

Calibration is of the utmost importance to me. Therefore all my photographs have been processed on a profesionally calibrated monitor. If you see an overexposed / uderexposed image with weird colours on your screen, not the image but your screen needs adjusting. In means that the final print will usually display better exposure, colours or contrast than you see on your screen.

 


NOTE ON SIZES  

Each of the standard images is offered  in 4 formats (A2, A1, A0). Panoramic images are blended from many vertical photographs and therefore the longest edge of the image will equal the maximum dimension of the paper (usually 100cm, 150cm, 200cm). Please note all sizes are approximate. Do not hesitate to contact us if you need any specific size.

PRINT RESOLUTION SAMPLE

For those who prefer large format photographs we can highly recommend our PANORAMIC gallery. Images in this galerry are blended from many vertical photos and so the final resolution can be more than 20 000 pixels (longer edge). This is enough for a few metres big prints.

You can check the optical quality of Vaclav's photographs in the showcase bellow. Zoom in to see the pebbles on the beach, distant Brighton Pier (on the left), or discover a seagull sitting on a pillar.
