Because of the aspect ratio of the digitial photographs to the paper, when printed at 100% there will be some margin around the edge of the paper.

If you would like borderless prints, please leave this as a comment when going through the Paypal process. If there is NO comment then a standard print will be assummed and NOT borderless.

If borderless is asked for I will try and make sure that none of the photograph is clipped "off" to ruin the original.

All prints will be without any kind of "frame", that I have used on the web site. Though a small Nigel Aves Photography will be inserted in bottom left or right.

Without being restricted to a few choices of media to achieve professional requirements for longevity, Epson UltraChrome K3 inks are designed to work as a system with Epson's full range of professional media. Epson UltraChrome K3 ink has improved print permanence characteristics that provide lightfastness ratings of up to 108 years for color and over 200 years for black and white under rigorous industry accepted display conditions*. Epson UltraChrome K3 ink and Epson Genuine Media perform as a perfectly matched system that provides the industry's best combination of quality output and longevity enabling the display and sales of prints to the most demanding clients.
*Print permanence ratings based on accelerated testing of prints on specialty media, displayed indoors, under glass.

Choosing from an extraordinary number of possible ink combinations for each color, this technology optimizes ink usage to maximize the color gamut and provide smooth color transitions and gradations.
