Premium Printing | Premium Digital Printing | Bestype Printing

New York City’s photographers and artists, as well as the galleries and museums where their works hang, have relied on Bestype for premium digital printing services for over 40 years. We’ve printed all varieties of art, design, and photography viewed throughout New York and even beyond our borders. We dedicate our resources to delivering printing excellence that you will see and feel when viewing and holding our prints.

Premium Class Printing vs. Standard Print Services

Compared to standard printing (most documents and books), premium digital printing uses thicker paper stock which retains ink more effectively than thinner, lighter substrates. Premium digital ink for giclée printing, photography, and archival printing differs from standard ink, offering higher saturation levels and exact Pantone palette matching.

Finer papers, higher caliber inkjet technology, and extra attention to detail are not limited to fine art printing and photography reproduction. Books, journals, and magazines can also receive premium class printing treatment. Business and personal stationery, business cards, greeting cards, and invitations are all worthy of the extra layer of sophistication that premium digital printing affords.

Fine Art Premium Printing

Giclée printing uses technologically advanced inkjet printers, archival quality inks, and premium media (paper). The giclée printing process results in superior, high-quality art reproductions suitable for display or archive.

Bestype fine art premium printing uses the latest inkjet technology to produce our giclée prints. Our printers produce the widest range of colors, expertly matched to each piece of artwork we reproduce. Printing on premium paper ensures that every print shines with vibrant color and resists fading when exposed to light.

Premium Photography Printing

Reproducing photography for display or sale involves scaling images and printing them on specialty photographic paper. We reproduce your photographs using premium inkjet technology, archival pigment inks, and museum-quality media optimized for photographic art. Our digital printers reproduce your photos in sizes from 4″ x 6″ up to 40″ x 60″.

Premium Digital Printing Media

Every brand and style of premium fine art paper or photo paper adds its properties to the work you want to reproduce. Bestype carries an extensive range of every weight, brightness, and finish to have what we need available at any moment.

Visit our shop to see each brand of paper in real-world examples, and run your fingers over warp, weft, and weave. Each paper type reacts to premium digital printing inks differently.

Bestype premium printing offers brands like Epson and Hahnemühle media in hot and cold press options in a wide selection of brightnesses and finishes.

Premium Class Printing Finishes

Bestype printing offers options to add special touches to your prints, such as metallic finishes and spot gloss coating.

Metallic finishes are available in many colors. Metallic foil may be used within any print to highlight detail or as an integrated part of your design.

Spot gloss coating adds a glossy protective UV varnish to all or part of your print.

Premium Trimming, Mounting, and Matting Services

Every artwork we print, we can also prepare for display.

Trimming provides borders surrounding your art or photograph premium print. Our most requested premium trimming options are trim to size (or flush), a 1/4″ extra border, or a 1″ extra border.

Mounting loose prints to board is a convenient way to display premium prints. Art is trimmed to size and mounted on 3/16″ white foam board or black Gatorfoam.

Matting prepares prints for display and sale. Prints are attached to the back of a mat board using acid-free tape, and then matted prints are backed with a trimmed protective foam board and inserted into a clear bag.
