FujiFlex Crystal Archive LightJet HD Photo Paper Sample

Our top selling HD photo paper has an extremely high-gloss finish, which adds depth and richness to make your image look almost 3D. A polyester-based silver-halide material is optimized for professional gallery-level color printing of displays and commercial prints.

Epson Metallic Paper

Kodak Endura Metallic HD Photo Paper Sample

Epson Metallic Paper has a glossy finish and pearlescent metallic appearance. This paper uses a proprietary combination of film laminate layers, which results in striking, three-dimensional, lasting images on an ultra-bright background.

Fuji Glossy

HD Photo Paper FujiFlex

Fuji Glossy paper has a high sheen finish, which gives your photo the WOW factor that you’ve been looking for. Fuji Glossy produces images with rich, deep blacks, brilliant colors, and a mirror-like surface. Fuji Glossy also has a neutral original white point, which adds to the shine.

Fuji Matte

HD Photo Paper Matte

Our Fuji Matte paper is smooth to the touch and has no sheen, meaning reflection and shine will be minimal. Your images will have color depth on a matte surface. Fuji Matte has extremely accurate color reproduction range and helps create unique, impressive images.

Fuji Luster

HD photo paper

Great for panoramic photos and portraits, our Fuji Luster paper has a mild sheen that brings out color with little reflectivity. Photos with high levels of contrast really benefit from these inherent media properties, truly creating a unique image.

Finishing Option – Laminate

Does your Lightjet printer apply any sharpening by default? Can it be turned off?2017-10-27T16:34:43-07:00

Yes, we run our LightJet printer with the sharpening feature ON. This is the default setting to ensure your custom hd photo prints and wall art are printed at the highest quality possible. For more information on LightJet and the prints created from it, check out this LightJet FAQ. LightJet Printer

However, if you would rather that we not use this feature, we can easily turn it off upon request. Please contact the ArtisanHD customer service department to specify this request with our LightJet printer and to complete your order. We want to ensure your order is completed exactly as you envision it!

What is a LightJet Print?2017-10-27T16:43:40-07:00

The term LightJet is often used to describe a digitally-made chromogenic print. Unexposed silver-halide (AgX) photographic paper is temporarily fixed on an internal drum. Three digitally controlled lasers simultaneously expose the photo-sensitive emulsion on the paper medium (or back-lit transparency medium) with red, green and blue laser light. The amount of light from each laser varies to provide specific color and density values for each pixel imaged to the lightjet print.

A Lesson in Light Leads to a Stunning LightJet Print

LightJet PrintThe light path includes a spinning, surface-coated mirror mounted on an air bearing that travels along the axis of the internal drum. It  reflects the laser light at 90 degrees, allowing for a dimensionally consistent round imaging dot across the entire area of the photographic paper. The purpose of this round imaging dot is to maintain edge to edge sharpness on the final print. The lightjet print is then processed using traditional photochemical means. After this process, the photographic print is handled just as any other photo print.

    I would highly recommend ArtisanHD!!! I was looking for a way to dress up our company’s conference room and came across their website. We are a builder with some great portfolio images so I just selected the ones I wanted, used the tools on the website to crop and size, selected the options and ordered. Pictures arrived quickly and were great quality. Such an impressive, professional look. Loved them so much just reordered another 4 images. After I submitted, they caught some issues in their review process where I had cut off a logo. We corrected and my pictures shipped the next day. Can’t wait to get them!

    Exceeded this cusomters expectations


    I spent a lot of time working with many different prints shops, papers, and different processes. I just received my prints and not only did Artisan meet my expectations they exceeded them by a mile. When I went to Canada I seen some amazing printed photos at an exhibition and had a hard time meeting that quality of print….well up till today. I am a wildlife photographer and Artisan made my photos as close to life as possible. Thank you so much for the quality of work you do and you have a customer for life.

    Had to share! Within a week of picking up the beautiful print ArtisanHD did for us, it was framed and on the wall in our living room. Thanks for the help and guidance, including suggesting some work by your retouching department and the paper surface (metallic). The place where we get framing done went nuts for the print. Again, not only am I delighted with the print and the final result in place, but I have also shared that with everyone to whom we have showed it!

    Completely Amazed with Product and Delivery

    Chance Lacy

    I am a Texas based Graphic Artist that decided to use the Kodak Metallic Paper for my image and once It was delivered I was blown away. My print had a great amount of color, and typically when you get your work printed the quality dulls. With Artisan HD’s printing services – my work was actually enhanced in quality and color. I couldn’t quit looking at it. Not to mention it was delivered in the most protected way I have ever seen. Great job and I will be ordering all my work with Artisan HD from now on. Thank you.

      Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about our Photo-papers! There is a definite difference between basic ink-jet prints, and the quality and clarity a true, archival rated Laser-exposed Light-jet print delivers. [and our team-members in packaging do a pretty good job too 🙂 ] – We look forward to assisting you again in the near future.

    ArtisanHD popped my Bells!


    So, I sent image in for “test” print using the Fujiflex Crystal paper. The print comes back, I open it up and literally, my wife went “WOW”. I bring it to work to show others and some other photo enthusiast and LITERALLY.. They said.. “WOW”.

    The image is of the Maroon Bells in Aspen Colorado and the quality and clarity of the print cannot be expressed in a short product review. I look forward to a full size print.

    It’s not really a complaint, but rather a suggestion is to provide some ICC profiles so I can ensure what I send you is compliant to their printers. However, what I got back was SPOT on, so KUDOS on that, but before I submit a much larger and expensive print, it would be good to have some reassurance.

    Other than that… ROCK ON!!!

      Hi David,

      Thank you so much for your enthusiastic review 🙂 We certainly appreciate it! As to ICC profiles, that raises a good point: While ICC can be helpful when someone prints at home on a nice Epson with specialty photo-paper, it can be handy. BUT, our process is an RGB laser exposed print, then chemically developed (yup, we still have a dark room and RA-4 processing) –

      So, what does that mean for ICC? We don’t need it – rather, we ask that our clients export an uncompressed .TIF, (minimum resolution of 150DPI at full size) with ADOBE RGB98 as the color profile. This way, we remain in a true RGB color environment, and that profile gives us a wide gamut, to really make the print POP.

      Again, thank you for the kind words – we look forward to assisting you with your large print and any future projects.


      Your ArtisanHD Team

    The paper speaks for itself when viewed, especially in changing light. ArtisanHD is where things really get good. Not only the most competitive price for my project, but impeccable customer service. I found a photo on line, tracked down the artist and they coordinated to get the print done. Artisan sent me proof photos and spent the time to assure I knew all details of the process. The Nordstrom of printing for certain!!!

ArtisanHD Customer Reviews

As the owner of a small startup company, I looked around The Valley and online for professional high quality printed products. Other solutions always seemed to come with a tradeoff: poor customer service, product size constraints, high pricing and volume, or even bad finish quality. Working with Mike and his team I was able to produce the high quality unique products at competitive prices that I was looking for without compromise. Their knowledgeable customer service was phenomenal! We were even able to find solutions to some of the more complex printing and finishing requirements I needed. I’ll definitely be working with them again on future projects!
I recently sold one of my Digital Art pieces and the team at ArtisanHD have the complete package really sorted out! They are a friendly, client orientated and totally professional team who happen to produce spectacular prints as well! Thanks guys for keeping everyone very happy!

Fantastic staff, fantastic facilities, second to none product quality output. I feel like you're my secret weapon.
Beautiful print work and customer service of the highest order – you'll be so thrilled with how well you're treated, and how they'll go the extra mile to make sure you're happy and satisfied with the final result.
ArtisanHD Online Photo Printing Review – Denise S.Denise S.
It's rare I find a company today where the customer service, quality and pricing meet most every need I'm looking for. It's even rarer to find those companies where the staff are not only willing to meet those expectations, but surpass them. In a very stressful situation I created for myself, the staff at Artisan went out of their way to help me find a answer to my predicament. Their team worked with me to find a fast solution pulling me out of a situation I knew very few companies would go out of their way to solve. It's those actions I use to choose who I will send my next job. The service was awesome! The quality was awesome! Their staff was Awesome!

ArtisanHD Online Photo Printing Review – Dan M.Dan M.
When I inadvertently shipped a limited edition print to a customer before signing it, Artisan was quick to have it rerouted back to their facility to resolve my issue. When I then showed up during the holiday season –– right before New Year's Eve –– I was met by no less than the company's president, Doug Bondon, who was genuinely happy to assist me and get my order on its way in a matter of minutes. Folks, this is what topnotch, white glove service really looks like. Outstanding!
