WHAT IS A CYANOTYPE
The cyanotype (a.k.a. sun-print) process is one of the oldest in the history of photography, and during this digital revolution that we are experiencing, we feel the need to look back at a craft that is handmade, analogue, and using an all-natural light source: the sun.
Our cyanotypes are made by coating high-quality watercolor paper with a light-sensitive emulsion, to then be exposed in direct sunlight for several minutes using a photo negative to get the best image quality. The print is then washed and fixed, to stop the chemical reaction and prevent fading. What you get is an amazing, Prussian blue image, with absolutely no ink involved.
Since each print is handmade, tones may vary slightly- the beauty of cyanotypes is that each print is unique.

Since cyanotypes are one of the oldest photographic prints known, they must be stored properly. Cyanotypes involve an intricate process with light-sensitive chemicals and high-quality papers to get the best image quality possible, so they are very different to regular inkjet prints.
Although image quality is quite stable, there may be some fading if exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time, and placed in extremely humid or acidic environments. For your print to last a lifetime, which it can, it would be best to put it in a glass or plastic frame, and try to keep it indoors, away from direct UV light- indirect light is fine! If you have any more questions, please ask!
We offer discounts for the purchase of multiple prints, whether it be the same image or a series of images. Please contact us for specific details about your order.
Remember that each cyanotype print is unique, since they are all hand-made and exposed in direct sunlight, so there may be subtle variations in tone and texture. When expecting multiple prints of the same image, don't expect them to all be exactly the same, there may be small variations- that's the beauty!

All items are shipped unframed, carefully rolled in a tube.
A lot of people like to float-frame our cyanotypes and paintings, since the borders where the emulsion is applied are very interesting, but some people also like to matte the pieces so that they look bigger. If you're interested in a diptych or triptych we recommend framing them to the edge of the paper, that way they can be displayed relatively close together and will suggest continuity between the individual pieces.
We generally suggest thin frames, either white aluminum or a mild or light wood-plated aluminum. UV-protection or museum glass is also recommended.
