HAHNEMÜHLE PHOTO RAG PAPER DECKLED EDGE OPTIONS
Global Image Products offers 3 different edge options for HAHNEMÜHLE Photo Rag Fine Art Paper.

If you are uncertain as to how to setup your print files for Deckled Edge prints feel free to contact us.
Hand Torn Deckled Edge
File Preparation: for Hand Torn Deckled Edge
Sizing: As per finished print size. However the final size after the print is hand torn to produce the deckled edge will be 1/2 inch (12mm) smaller on all 4 sides.
ie. an 8×10 inch print will end up 7×9 inches.
Alternatively, if you would like to end up with a finished 8×10 inch deckled edge print, you will need to supply a canvased 9×11 inch print on the next size up print.
Colour Space: Adobe1998 or sRGB
Please choose Hand Torn Deckled Edge if you want to float the print within the mat opening as below:

If you want a larger white border simply add more than 1 inch on all 4 sides when preparing the print file.

IMAGE FILE PREPARATION
When uploading image files for Global Image Printing Services, please make sure the image files are sized correctly and the resolution is 300dpi. For best results we also recommend the colour space to be Adobe RGB (1998) or sRGB.
To ensure the best printing results it’s very important to prepare your files according to our instructions.
The best way to calibrate your monitor to match our printing profiles is to order a set of FREE TEST PRINTS. Included with your test print order we will also supply a Lustre GIP colour correction print for your reference. Below you can download the corresponding file to the GIP colour correction print.
Once you have received your physical test prints and GIP colour correction print from Global Image Products, open the GIP colour correction file downloaded above in your chosen photo editing software and make monitor adjustments to match the print.
Please note that we have matched our printer to paper profiles across the 4 available fine art papers to produce almost matching colours regardless of your paper preference.
If you need any further assistance please don’t hesitate to contact us.
