Price increase for prints on baryta (glossy) papers

13th October 2017 | News

Effective 1st November, prints on baryta (glossy) papers will attract a 20% surcharge. The cost for rag (matte) prints remains unchanged.

The price increase reflects the higher cost for premium baryta papers (such as Canson Infinity Baryta Prestige) and/or extra care required in their printing (read increased wastage).

What exactly is baryta anyway? Baryta (or barium sulphate) is a clay-like substance applied to the underlying surface of the print giving it its overall smoothness and appearance. It is what distinguishes a fibre paper in the darkroom from its low cost RC (resin-coated or plastic) cousin. As in the darkroom, baryta papers are chosen for their superior paper feel, image depth and look. There is now a large range of baryta papers available for inkjet printing, for both black & white and colour images.

12th November 2014 | News

Macquarie Editions can now produce presentation portfolios of your work. These could either be for sale as limited editions or simply to showcase/preserve your best images. The images themselves are printed on the paper of your choice (see below for some recommendations) then individually sleeved with archival barrier paper. A typical portfolio will supplement the images with any or all of: title sheet, text description, thumbnails, colophon etc. The whole is presented in an elegant clamshell box (custom made to Macquarie Editions’ specifications) and titled externally as desired. A pair of cotton gloves is included to encourage careful handling.

The cost for a completed A3+ portfolio with 10 images is $600. This includes the box, printing and assembly. Pricing for different sizes and/or number of images is available on request.

Reflective Scans

15th September 2013 | News

Macquarie Editions has recently added a colour managed large-format flatbed scanner and can now offer high quality scans of any drawn, painted or printed media up to A2 size. The scanned image can then be transferred to a fine art paper as a reproduction potentially indistinguishable from the original (and with comparable display life).


Updated Price List

1st September 2013 | News

Effective today, an updated Price List applies for a number of prints and services.

The price for all but the largest prints will increase with corresponding discounts of 5% or 10% for medium/large jobs. This reflects a disproportionate overhead for small jobs.

The discount for student work (where the prints are for assessment) has been increased from 15% to 20%.


HiDPI (Retina) support

23rd November 2012 | News

This site now supports HiDPI on “Retina” class devices (iPad 3/4, MacBook Pro with Retina display) and similar tablets/screens. If you have one of these (and use a browser that supports it) you should notice smoother and more detailed images. Future content will all display at higher resolution while existing images will be updated over time.
