Custom Digital recieves Hahnemühle Certification

Filed under Announcements | by Tyler Boley @ 6:41 pm

This is now a Hahnemühle Certified Studio, only 18 in the country so far. Thanks to Travis McConnaghy who traveled all the way here to check things out, and of course Carol Boss for years of support. Though not initially under their own label, Hahnemühle has been making fine papers coated for inkjet from the beginning of serious inkjet printing, and fine papers in general for hundreds of years. I’ve always utilized them and will continue to do so.

  1. I got prints made on William Turner from Hanahmule and understand it is VERY delicate and will flake if mishandled. Could you elaborate how best handle the prints when framing, please? For example, is it okay for the print touch the glass/plexiglass if framed without a matt?

  2. Is this you Sancho!!?? Sorry this took so long. Anyway, yes they can be right up against the back of the plexi or glass, Jeff has many framed this way and it looks nice. Otherwise, a normal overmatte with some kind of tape hinge or corners rather than mounting down is best. Simply tell the framer the image surface can’t be touched or scraped, and until being worked on all prints should have that interleave tissue. Basically you don’t want anything with any surface texture rubbibg across the surface, the glassine works well because it’s slick.
