We offer three types of Kodak Professional Endura photographic paper:
- Kodak Professional Endura Premier – Matte
- Kodak Professional Endura Premier – Glossy
- Kodak Professional Endura Premier – Metallic.
Kodak Endura Premier – Matte is Kodak’s most popular professional paper. It is a traditional E surface (matte) paper, has a luster finish and is excellent for realistic color saturation and color accuracy as well as neutral flesh tones. It has an archival life of 100 years in a typical home display environment and up to 200 years in dark storage. Through most of the site we refer to it as E Surface paper or Matte paper.
Kodak Endura Premier – Glossy is Kodak’s F surface professional paper. It is an excellent paper for realistic color saturation and color accuracy as well as neutral flesh tones and has a neutral tonal range from white to black. It has an archival life of 100 years in a typical home display environment and up to 200 years in dark storage.
Kodak Endura Premier – Metallic paper uses a proprietary combination of film laminate layers to produce a metallic or pearlescent look that give images a unique sense of depth and a glossy surface. It delivers rich, vibrant colors, flattering flesh tones and very deep blacks. Its special construction makes it more resistant to tearing and curling and provides a unique look in a variety of applications. It has an archival life of 100 years in a typical home display environment and 200 years in dark storage.
Professional Print Options
As a full service professional lab, we offer a wide variety of options to enhance our professional prints. We offer mounting on six different substrates from single weight matboard to canvas on stretcher frame. We offer print coating in both Luster and Glossy finish. Coating provides a low cost way to add additional protection for a print (from scratches and moisture) and provides a different surface feel and look from standard photographic paper.
We offer two styles of low cost machine texture for prints, Pebble and Linen. We also offer seven styles of more expensive plate texture for prints from wallets up to 20×30’s. Texture provides an old school, high end feel to the print, while also reducing the chances it will be scanned and copied. We also offer Lamination for prints in Glossy and Matte. Lamination provides the ultimate in protection for a print both from spills, abrasions and it enhances the print’s resistance to UV rays.
Lab Correction of Contrast, Density and Color.
Meridian offers two workflows: Lab Corrected and No Correction. You can choose the one that best fits your own working style.
In our Lab Corrected workflow, each image is examined by a trained technician and overall adjustments are made for color, density, contrast and saturation. In making these adjustments, priority is given to what appears to be the subject in the image and to producing natural appearing skin tone, if the subject is a person.
In the No Correction workflow, images are printed exactly as they are received with no correction applied. We strongly recommend that customers who want to use the No Correction workflow use a calibrated monitor and our color profile to adjust the images before they are submitted. For more information see our image submission guide. Images submitted through the No Correction workflow cannot be returned for image quality issues.
The default workflow for orders is the Lab Corrected workflow. The No Correction workflow is chosen as an end of order option in the Order Review section of ROES. Select No Correction by clicking Do Not Color Correct in the Color Correction section. Do Not Color Correct applies to all the images in an order.
