  • Print type

    A traditional C-type print is a colour print made in a darkroom from a colour negative or transparency. It is produced on light sensitive paper using a chromogenic process. Before digital technology, these were the prints we all received from the pharmacies from our holiday films. C-type prints are archival and are still preferred by some photographers and collectors to digital art prints.

    Paper type

    The Duffy Archive has selected to use Fuji Baryte Gloss heavyweight 320gms paper for their colour prints. This has been selected as they consider it the closest match they have found to traditional C-Type papers. The Fuji paper has a higher saturation and a much longer archival lifespan that the traditional C-Type papers.

  • Framing

    A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.

    If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).

    If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.

    If you live outside of the UK, we are sorry we are unable to ship framed prints to you.

    For all framing enquiries please contact us at info@rockarchive.com or call us on +44 (0) 20 7267 4716
