Piezography printing is a little different than other pigment inkjet type prints, so a brief explanation may be helpful. Developed by Jon Cone, these premium prints have a rich warm glow, tonal richness and inner depth that must be seen to be appreciated. As aesthetically beautiful as a heritage silver print, they are environmentally safe and sustainable and have outstanding archival longevity.

Prints are often done on a special Jon Cone Type 5 soft gloss paper.
