Entrusting Your Photographic Images to the Right Color Lab Mid South Color Labs

Entrusting Your Photographic Images to the Right Color Lab

In the ever-evolving landscape of photography, the importance of color cannot be overstated. By entrusting your photographic images to the right color lab, you gain access to precision, expertise, and premium materials that elevate the visual impact of your work. From ensuring consistency across platforms to providing customizable options for personalization, Mid-South Color Labs plays a vital role in bringing your artistic vision to life. So, the next time you seek to unleash the full potential of your work, consider one or more of these products.

Giclee Fine Art Series

Giclee printmaking meets the highest quality standard for printing limited edition pieces on paper or canvas. This process includes spraying microscopic dots of ink onto fine-quality paper or canvas. On paper, the inks are actually absorbed slightly and blend to create a piece of fine art. On canvas, the process yields prints with stunning vibrancy and realism.

OUR GICLEE ART IS PRINTED ON STATE-OF-THE-ART PRINTERS.

Gaining in popularity, this product can accurately reproduce original art onto archival watercolor papers and canvas. At Mid-South Color, our paper contains no optical brighteners, unlike less expensive canvases. In addition, our printers are state-of-the-art. This means our Giclee Prints have the same look and feel as the original art but at a fraction of the cost. Our Giclee process takes printmaking to the Next Level.

Painter Portraits

Painter Portraits stand apart because they allow photographers to compete with oil portrait artists. Not only can you offer your clients an affordable alternative, but you will also have the selling point of retaining likeness and expression that most oil portrait artists cannot. Our in-house portrait artist begins with your file and then digitally paints every pixel to create a stunning Painter Portrait. This product gives you the competitive edge with the realism of the photograph but with the beauty, style, and feel of a free-hand painting.

Our artists match the painting style to your preferences.

In our Painter Portrait process, we print directly onto canvas through our Fine Art Giclee series. For added realism, we add contour brush strokes with oil enhancements. The end result of the amazing piece is your photograph now competes with oil paintings! Watch here to see the many steps of our unique Hand-Stripped Canvas process.

Hand-Stripped Canvas

The “Mid-South” Technique mounts photographic prints to the canvas, giving the most even and pronounced canvas texture possible. Unlike most labs, we strip the resin-coated layer from the back of the print by hand to expose the paper fibers. This delicate process allows us to spray adhesive directly into the fibers, revealing maximum canvas texture.

Brilliance Series: Metal Mounted

Our Brilliance prints differ from traditional dye-sublimated metal prints in a dramatic way. With Brilliance, the luminous base tone and wide color gamut, along with the high-gloss surface, guarantee luxurious, extra-rich colors with a perfect gray balance. The colors are impressive, as the blacks are deeper and the whites are more brilliant. It also offers greater shadow detail and incredible sharpness. Brilliance Series on metal is competitive with traditional dye-sub-metal prints and Is ideal for portraits, landscapes, and commercial projects.
