Choosing the Right Paper for Your Project – Part II

We're proud to introduce the American Frame Print Department as guest bloggers on Ask Mike.

American Frame is extremely proud of the quality and diversity of photography printing papers that we are able to offer to our customers looking for professional photo printing services. There is a paper for every desired effect, but how do you determine which paper is best for your print? Fear not, any paper that you choose will have excellent reproductive abilities and archival ratings (if any of our papers were “bad,” we wouldn’t offer them!). Paper selection is mostly about personal preference, but certain papers are definitely more suited to specific subjects and media than others.
