Adding borders to your photograph

This tutorial will guide you through adding the correct borders to your prints.

You can add borders to your image from the ‘Border’ tab on our image uploader; you can also select a border colour here too, if you so wish.

You have two options for adding a border:

  • As a percentage of your existing print size (as denoted by the setting chosen in the ‘Print’ tab). Border will be subtracted from the full print size.
  • As a measurement in millimetres. Border will be added to the existing print size as extra paper (may incur an increased charge if you exceed the paper size for pricing band)

The default options for border colours are white or black. If you require a border of a different colour you will need to select Custom and enter a hexadecimal value – a handy reference for hexadecimal colours can be found here.

Fine Art Giclee printing

While all of our colour and black and white photo printing services are of gallery quality, a lot of photographers and artists like to produce their fine art prints on Giclee watercolour paper, using archival pigment inks.

Black & White printing

We can produce real Silver Gelatin 'Darkroom prints' from your digital files. Working with Ilford, we are able to print directly to Ilford Galerie Silver FB Glossy fibre based bromide photo paper and Ilford Galerie Digital Silver RC Pearl.

Mounting your prints

After your photos have been printed, our mounting team are able to mount the prints on a range of substrates, ranging from the lightweight foamex, foamboard or kapamount. We can also mount ctype photo prints onto more sturdy materials such as dibond or aluminium, backed with either battens or a subframe, depending on print size.

Framing your photos

When ordering online, we offer a limited range of classic photo frames, in three finishes: white photo frame, smooth black photo frame or a solid light oak frame. Alternately, just order your prints online to take advantage of our great value online ordering system, then contact us to discuss alternate framing styles and our range of thousands of frame mouldings.
