We import the very best print bags made in the world (we'd love to go with an Australian option, but they're just not as good - we've looked!).

Beware of similar looking imitations - they're just not as crystal clear and true to your print colours as these bags. Made from intert BOPP plastic, these acid free bags are perfectly safe to store your images in for lengthy periods. There's enough room in the bags to insert acid free board or foamcore behind your print, which makes them perfect for contexts like market stall displays.

We've got you covered for all the standard A print sizes - A4, A3, A3+ and A2.

Our card size bags are chosen to be a perfect match to our inkjet printable Artist's Cards. With just those two products you can easily make boutique, custom printed cards with sale-ready presentation.

Image Science's Unique

Inkjet Print Retouching Kit

Our unique Inkjet Print Retouching Kit is the perfect solution to those white 'holes' you get sometimes when using dusty fine art papers - we get orders for these from all over the world!

Just like in the days of old with black and white darkroom print spotting, a whole print shouldn't be wasted for one tiny blemish - with this kit, some practise and a steady hand, you can spot repair these pesky white dots!

If you need to coat your prints or canvasses for extra protection, these are great products to choose. Archival tested, and easy to apply.

Of course, as with any product like this, test & perfect your technique on spare materials before you coat your valuable prints. The secret is (nearly always) less is more. And use a proper sprayer or high density foam roller.

The protective spray is invisible on everything except gloss materials, and is really a sealant for your prints - helping them to further resist atmospheric pollutants like ozone (tests show prints last as much as double the time with this spray in unframed tests).

The varnish is typically used with canvas prints only, and is a thicker visible coating. We like the matte coating the most, but you can even mix the three types to get just the right level of gloss you're after.
