Here for the first part of the article:
Second test print at Epson partner place.
This time round, we decided that we will print all the images in small size with the respective media type. We will then print a piece of the picture in the final size proportion. This is to see if the quality and detail will be there before printing the full giant prints. They were not sure about the result because it is very rather rare to print that big in fine art. I came with 14 images, 2 for rescue just in case if 1 or 2 images can not match the size of the print in order to provide a good quality look. Half were print in monochrome and half in colour.
The result: The pictures matched the criteria to print the size that I wanted.
Final printing Process on the incredible large format printer Epson SureColor SC-P20070!
It was incredible feeling to see your images in that size, 9 large prints that were made with the Epson Signature Worthy Hot Press Bright media by 150cm x 100cmm and 3 giant prints on Epson Exhibition Canvas Matte 202cm x 135cm.
I fell in love with all of them. I was speechless with the canvas especially with the incredible detail and tone. My perspective about canvas was totally changed.
The Epson SureColor SC-P20070 printer provides outstanding colour prints that lasted up to 200 years, as well as four levels of grey for accurate transitions with was low in grain which is well suited for monochrome images.
Epson Exhibition Canvas Matte has found a new fan. I will for sure print Epson Exhibition Canvas Matte in the future.
The next step for me was to examine each print as if they were perfect and whiteout any imperfection. They were perfect and ready to be mounted.
Mounting the prints
In my case, the 9 prints with media Epson Signature Worthy Hot Press Bright were mounted on a aluminium Dibond display boards without any lamination on the print in order to have the best detail and to beautify the print.
The three canvas, them, were stretched with a wooden frame. All my mounted prints were equipped with a structure that permits to hang easily. We used metallic cable and hook to hang the prints at East Garden Foyer at The Fullerton Hotel.
Besides installing all the prints at the right place, right level and harmoniously in the room. there is also another factor. The actual light at the exhibition was slightly yellowish. And for my exhibition, I wanted to have a cold daylight light, therefore we changed the lights in order to achieve the suitable lights for the prints.
On the first day, I could see the prints at a vertical position and not horizontal.
Till today, I can remember at this moment that it was a very emotion day for me despite a mind filled with thousand thoughts before the launch day. There were countless people complimenting and noticing the quality of the prints. Some photographers were thinking that I was using a media format camera when shooting these pictures.[envira-gallery id=”5396″]
Lastly, I hope that you enjoyed reading my experiences about the process of making my prints for the exhibition especially with Epson large format printers, Epson media, and Epson knowledge.
I have to thank Epson for all the generous support and sponsorship for my pictures exhibited.
Currently, I’m working on my new photography exhibition in Singapore for 2018 and will share more with you.
Do look out for my coming prints, I’m gonna be investing in doing more printing in various sizes from my travel journeys and work. I would like to experiment more in this field because I enjoy making print and especially in monochrome.
