The Future of Photo and Fine Art Printing...

It’s essential for both resellers and print providers to be aware of upcoming trends in photo and fine art printing to make sound business decisions, take advantage of new market opportunities, and stay ahead in the world of fine art reproductions.

Trends for 2024:
1.    Large-scale Prints
Designers are embracing the grandiose in interiors and are looking to make bold statements that demand attention. KODAK PROFESSIONAL Fine Art and Photo Paper
is designed to print the highest-quality reproductions with sharp details and vibrant colors at any size.
2.    Gallery Walls and Splits
Small prints of varying sizes and shapes hung together to create a “gallery wall” can tell a story and make a space feel unique. Splits that involve printing a single image across multiple panels are also popular and perfect for panoramic landscape photos made possible with smartphones.
3.    New Substrates
Advances in digital printing have made it possible to print on various materials like metal, fabric, or acrylic. These substrates offer a modern look and are a unique departure from paper or canvas.
KODAK PROFESSIONAL Sublimation, Metallic Gloss Film is a heavy, rigid film similar to a Cibachrome-style substrate.
4.    AI-enhanced Photos 
This cutting-edge technology uses artificial intelligence to create realistic photograph-like images.
5.    Sustainable Art Prints
Print providers are looking to adopt more sustainable printing methods and substrates. KODAK Wide-Format Media has a
portfolio of FSC®-certified materials sourced from responsibly managed forests that ensure trees are replanted, and that wildlife is not harmed.

5 Factors to Consider When Choosing the Right Photo Paper

With so many inkjet photo paper brands and choices, knowing which type of paper to offer your customers and in what price range can be tricky. 

Five factors to consider when choosing the right paper:

  1. Coating helps ink stay on the paper by controlling how it is absorbed. 
  2. Color gamut relates to the range of colors a specific paper can reproduce from its source image.
  3. D-Max describes the maximum black tone your choice of photo paper can recreate. Typically matte papers cannot hold the same levels of black as glossy papers.
  4. Archival properties mean the print is designed to last long without fading or yellowing.
  5. Instant-dry capability a microporous coating allows prints to dry instantly.

To provide the right paper for the right application and keep them coming back for more, KODAK offers wide-format printing materials to fit every need of the professional photographer or print service provider.

These are just a few of the many photographic paper choices available to fill the varying needs of your customers. For more information or to order, visit KODAKWFMedia.com or call us at 888-893-4668, or email us at info@KODAKWFMedia.com.
