CARBOTYPES

A carbotype is the tradename for our black & white inkjet prints using the Piezography™ process. The new generation carbon-pigmented inks produced by Jon Cone have proven themselves through extensive testing and over 7 years of user feedback, to be a very stable and long-lived media for archival black and white fine art prints.

All carbotypes are made with Selenium Piezotone ink on fine-art watercolor paper. Our default paper is Hahnemühle PhotoRag 188 g/sm for standard prints and 308 gsm for giclée. The PhotoRag paper has a cream base and a smooth finish making it suitable for most subject matter. A smooth white base paper and a textured cream paper is also available for giclée carbotypes.

Prints are sold on oversized paper because the printer must allow for a safe edge. We do not trim to final print size. The widest paper we use is 24 inches. Therefore the widest dimension for the live area is 23 inches.

Standard carbotype - With a good scan and a clean file all we need to do is use Photoshop levels to set the black and white endpoints and adjust the gamma slider as needed.
Giclée carbotypes - When details in the shadows or highlight areas must be enhanced, our giclée carbotypes should be specified. There is a $32 minimum to allow for file work. All printing in this category include an 8x10 approval print which is retained at Conntech as a matchprint for future reorders.
Reprints - Reprints made after the initial order are priced as additionals. There is a file retrieval and setup charge included. We use the approval print we keep on file to ensure a match to your original order.
