Our Materials

What differs Moncreed from our platforms is that it is an online gallery the artworks of which you can customise according to your needs. You can choose between sizes and many high quality materials, which helps us in reaching our goal: making art accessible.  

We offer four mediums, which highlight the most of our selected photographs: you can choose the prints on the traditional paper, cardboard posters which can hold without a frame, Alu Dibond panel print to highlight the depthless of the photograph or the luxurious Gallery Print.

Paper

The most beloved choice for our consumers when it comes to picking the medium for an artwork is a high quality Epson UltraChrome print on Hahnemühle Photo Silk Baryta 310 paper. This combination of paper and ink is used by the most prestigious exhibitions, highlighting the superior quality of an artwork, it enables an impressive contrast and shows the depthless of an image regardless whether it is in color or in black&white. 

Hahnemühle Photo Silk Baryta 310 is a white silk gloss paper, which age-resistant and acid-free.

Its unique barium coating provides an impressive gloss to the print. Its high color density will present an artwork of your choice exceptionally.

Cardboard Print

A cardboard print is a thicker version of a paper print. The material is a cardboard of 1,1 mm thickness, it has a smooth surface which depicts all color tones. Choosing this material you can be sure that you’ve just used the most sustainable and environmentally friendly material, as our craft boards are 100% recyclable. All cardboard prints have a white boarder, the thickness of the boarder is dependent on the size of the work.

This craft board print is also beneficial for those, who don’t want to use any extra hanging tools or frames, as is can be easily be stuck to wall with a regular tape. It is very light and need no extra support, however if you do decide to get a frame for your art piece, you can always turn to regular framing.

Gallery Print

When you are looking for an outstanding material for framing your artwork, you should consider our Gallery Print option, it gives any photo a very special exhibit-like look. 7-color Ultraviolet Printing method is used to apply all color shades to a high quality Fuji Crystal Paper, with acrylic this print receives an extra depthless and color intensity.

This technique is used for presentations and gallery curations and meet all the professional requirement. A crystal clear acrylic glass is put over the print, a solid aluminium Dibond is backing the print and the glass. We use elastic silicone for sealing the Fuji Crystal Paper to the aluminium Dibond as it prevents the cracking and bubbles in-between and keeps the print sturdy. 

You will receive standard suspension plates matching the format of your order free of charge.

Alu DiBond

Aluminium Dibond is a composite material, we use it at 3 mm thickness. It has three layers: two aluminium plates with a platinum look and a black polyethylene layer in-between. We recommend this material for large formats. It is a prefect high end solution for your non-reflecting print.

We use Fuji Crystal Paper to mount it on onto Dibond©. Ultraviolet light used during the printing protects the colours from humidity, light and sun and makes your artwork long-lasting. The artwork is light and it is the most suitable format to use for large artworks.

You will receive standard suspension plates matching the format of your order free of charge.

Alu DiBond Betlerfinish

If you select this production option for your artwork, we will print the image directly on the horizontally brushed aluminum plate in silver. This technique gives a metallic shine and fascinating contrast. 

The 7-color UV printing applied directly onto the aluminium plate, giving an artwork a metallic silver look. 

The image carrier for your photo is the stable composite material Alu-Dibond. It consists of two coated aluminum plates and a polyethylene core in black. The upper plate is the brushed aluminum in silver. The print hardens under ultraviolet light and is thus protected from sun, dirt and moisture. We highly recommend to try this material for our black&white artworks.
