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.
KODAK Wide-Format Media continues to adapt to changes in the market, stay on top of market trends, and offer your customers state-of-the-art KODAK Wide-Format Media designed to fit your customer’s changing needs.
