Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Limited Edition Print? A limited edition print is one that will no longer be available in that format after the limited edition run is gone. It could be that the photographer and the subject both signed the print, or that it's a special print size, or that it won't be printed again. Check the details of each Limited Edition to be clear.
What is Archival Paper?
From Wikipedia: Archival paper is an especially permanent, durable acid-free paper. Archival paper is meant to be used for publications of high legal, historical, or significant value. In the USA, such paper must also be approved in accordance with the ANSI standards. The international standard for "permanent" paper is ISO 9706 and for "archival" paper, the standard is ISO 11108.
Often, cotton rag paper is used for archival purposes, as it is not made from wood-based pulp. Thus, "archival paper" is sometimes broken down into two categories:
How can I be sure about the authenticity of the prints?
Margin Arts works closely with each photographer and artist to make sure that the process is 100% correct from scan or screen until the final prints are shipped to you. Each piece comes with a Certificate of Authenticity with details about the print that was made just for you.
How can I be sure the artwork will arrive in mint condition?
Margin Arts stands behind its work, and each print is check for quality before it is shipped. We make sure the surface is flawless, with no bends, creases or fingerprints.
How are the prints packed to ensure they do not arrive damaged?
All prints are packed and shipped to the highest standards. Details to follow.
Is art a good investment?
Buy art you love and it will always be a good investment.
What should I do with the COA?
We recommend putting the Certificate of Authenticity in a safe place, or adhering it to the back of the framed print for safe keeping.
What should I do when I recieve my prints?
Keeping your print rolled in a tube for any length of time can make it difficult to flatten upon framing; therefore we recommend you frame your artwork as soon as possible. If you’re taking it to a framer, let them unroll and flatten it for framing. If you’re framing it yourself, please use caution when unrolling the artwork.
While the prints are crafted using archival safe papers and inks, the prints are safest when not placed in direct sunlight. Overtime, sunlight could cause fading. If your artwork is going in direct sunlight, we recommend purchasing archival safe glass*.
* If you’re having the artwork custom framed, most framers will have this option. If your framing the artwork and you wish for archival safe glass, ask your local frame or glass company to custom cut archival safe glass to fit the frame size.
How did you choose the photographers and artists that you work with?
Most of the photographers and artists we work with are part of the larger skateboarding and art community and we've known them a long time. Working together on Margin Arts to share their works with the world seemed like a good idea at the time.
How should I frame my art?
Framing is a matter of choice and preference. We offer a wide array of frame and matting options to ensure you plenty of choices. Most prints have some measure of white border, but please check each print's specifications to be sure of what you're getting.
Where can I purchase ready-made frames?
We encourage you to support your local art and framing store. If you can't find what you want there, Michaels, Target and Ikea have good choices, and there are many new online businesses selling frames. (For professional framing and the best possible framing choices for your new art, we highly recommened one more time that you consider getting your purchase framed at the same time as printing!)

Margin Arts currently offers six styles of photographic print paper. As you go through the ordering process, you will have the choice of six styles, three high- quality photographic papers, and three fine art papers: High Quality Photographic Papers: • Kodak Endura Metallic • Lustre Photo Paper • Fuji Deep Matte Velvet The photographic process is a Kodak RA-4 chemical process, similar to traditional film development. Laser light is used to develop the continuous-tone image onto silver halide paper. This is commonly referred to as a "C-print" or "chromogenic" process, and this is an acid-free, archival print. High Quality Archival Inks on Fine Art Papers: • Semi-Gloss Fine Art Paper • Smooth Fine Art Paper • Lustre Fine Art Paper The fine art paper printing process uses aqueous pigment inks. The inks are injected with via a twelve-color inkjet process that creates acid-free, archival prints. Kodak Endura Metallic is a distinctive, attention-grabbing glossy-finish paper with a slight metallic appearance that creates striking prints with an ultra-wide color gamut. The metallic emulsion and excellent D-Min rating creates clean whites, and a high D-Max rating makes for rich blacks. Excellent contrast and very accurate skin tones makes Endura great photographic paper. Our standard Lustre Photo Paper is Kodak Endura Lustre “E,” featuring a fine grain pebble textured surface. The blacks are deep and rich and hold their detail, while the whites are nice and bright. Lustre is very popular, partly because it’s a happy medium between a flat matte and a super-slick glossy surface. Luster is sometimes called semi-matte or pearl, and it has a bit more of a pebble to the surface than the matte does. Our Fuji Deep Matte Velvet is officially known as FujiColor Crystal Archive Deep Matte Paper, and features a unique matte surface that provides elegant color reproduction with subtlety and warmth, and clear, sharp distinct print images. Pure whites, accurate, high-saturation colors and excellent silver halide image stability to withstand the test of time. Our Semi-Gloss Fine Art Paper is Canson Platine Fibre Rag, a 310gsm, 100% Cotton, High DMAX, No OBAs, Acid-free paper. Platine Fibre Rag provides the aesthetic and feel of the original F-Type Baryta Fibre paper, featuring a true pure white tone without using optical brighteners that are known to affect the longevity of digitally produced images. Platine Fibre Rag’s extremely high D-Max and exceptional grey tones make it the product of choice for the more discerning black and white as well as color photographic prints. Our Smooth Fine Art Paper is Moab Entrada Bright Rag. This award-winning, 100% cotton fine art paper brings visions to print through superb ink handling and sharpness. Entrada is an archival acid-free and lignin-free paper with an expanded color gamut, natural contrast and high ink load. It is compatible with both dye and pigment inks ensuring that when used with archival inks, your prints will last for generations. The paper has a smooth surface and we offer the Bright version for vivid, accurate quality. Our Lustre Fine Art Paper is Epson Premium Lustre Paper. This is a high-quality quick-drying RC paper that produces vivid, lifelike images to rival those of traditional silver halide prints. This paper delivers highly saturated prints by offering maximum ink coverage and a high D-Max for true photographic reproductions. Its 10-mil RC base gives prints a traditional photographic feel, and keeps the paper cockle-free.
