Through PHOTONET Fine Art Printing, MAGNET offers a high-quality, personal service that involves you through all stages of the printing process, from image provision, paper selection, pre-print preparation with us at the computer, printing, finishing, and delivery.

We have 48 years of experience across all forms of photographic printing. We print anything, from one-offs to large-scale exhibitions, and our work has been seen in local and international galleries, including the Ballarat International Foto Biennale.

We love printing and will do everything possible to make sure you get the highest-quality, most faithful reproduction of your digital images.

 
 

Media

We can print to traditional paper stock, exotic papers, and other surfaces, like high-gloss film, canvas, and repositionable adhesive textile.

Traditional Paper Stock

We offer a range of traditional, archival quality papers that include:

  • Sihl Satin Baryta - German-made, extra-smooth satin sheen paper, indistinguishable from traditional baryta papers.
  • Museo Max - Lightly-textured matte 100% cotton rag fine art paper.
  • Inkjet Pro Elite - French-made, lightly-textured matte watercolour-style paper.

These papers are supplied by Giclée Media Supplies.

Exotic Paper Stock

We specialize in printing on an extensive range of beautiful "Japanese Washi" and other exotic papers from many parts of the world.  These papers offer a different look to prints on western paper and we have a full range, including heavily textured, very thin, and slight sheen papers.

We are the exclusive suppliers of these papers in this part of the world.

We recommend that you come in and examine these special papers for yourself, but feel free to email or call us for more information.

Other Surfaces

  • High-Gloss Film - Archival, waterproof film-like medium for maximum clarity and definition.
  • Canvas - 4th-generation 430gsm highly flexible canvas with brilliant neutral white surface and US-made acid free archival base.
  • Repositionable Adhesive Textile - A recent addition is this versatile, non-archival polyester, printing surface, easily removed from walls and other surfaces and very durable. This material is ideal for posters (perfect for rented accommodation), pop-up and mobile exhibitions, as well as notices, signage, etc.

We can also print on vinyl, backlit film, for signage, and to lightboxes as per your particular application.

 
 

FINISHING

We can organise framing, mounting to board or aluminium panel and top-quality canvas stretching, or make recommendations. We hire frames for exhibitions both at MAGNET and elsewhere.

Colour Management
