When you are considering purchasing some quality prints for your home or office, you will want to consider some of the many reasons that high quality art prints are more durable than their lower-quality counterparts. When you purchase prints in the form of a canvas, a photograph, or stretched canvas, the paper used is usually printed with pigment inks, which have better color and clarity than the pigmented backing of older prints. The printing process on the printed paper is a more advanced version of the process used to create paper, allowing for a much higher quality print with greater print-making ability. Since the pigment inks used today are capable of producing highly colored and full-bleed prints, these prints are often considered “first impression” type art prints. Because of this, it is important that you only purchase prints made with superior print-making processes.
