The Different Types of Mediums for Digital Printing

Nowadays, most people have a camera roll full of photos just sitting on their phone or a collection of various albums saved in the Cloud. While having digital copies of your favorites photos is nice so you never lose them, these pictures can often be forgotten. Instead of letting these photos collect digital dust, it may be time to get some printed and framed.

Choosing Between Different Digital Printing Mediums

RFA Decor, Rosenbaum Framing’s sister division, offers photo printing services in Boca Raton on a variety of mediums. This service allows you to take some of your favorite digital photos off of your electronic devices and display them in your home or office in printed form. While this sounds easy enough, there are several different mediums for digital printing. We are here to help you choose the best option for your photos.



One digital-to-print solution is printing photos on paper. This option is simple for framing and putting on display, but there are different papers for digital printing to choose from such as fine art paper, matte paper, photographic paper, and photo luster paper. Some have a vibrant glossy finish while others have more texture and can bring out different aspects of your images. If you are not sure which option is best for your purposes, our Boca art framers can help you decide.


If you want a more artistic look than traditional paper printing, canvas is a good option. Going beyond the two-dimensional form of paper, printing on canvas also allows you to choose between a few different types of gallery wraps to get the exact look you want for the edges.



Printing on aluminum gives your photos a modern, sleek, and vibrant look. They usually have a glossy finish and when mounted, create a sense of depth against the wall.


Acrylic photo prints are rich in color and offer a sleek finish. There are two different ways to create acrylic prints including printing directly on the acrylic substrate or printing on photographic paper and mounting it behind acrylic.



Choosing the right type of print medium for your photo can be overwhelming if you are not sure what you want, but we are here to help. Call us today at 561-994-4422 to learn more about how we can help you with all of your framing needs.
