Quality – Do you offer high quality prints?
High quality & longevity are part of our customer promise. That’s why we only produce according to the fine art printing approach. In the broadest sense, the approach describes an attempt to exhaust all possibilities of image optimization when expressing a photo. This involves optimizing dynamics, contrast, colors, shades of grey, choosing the right type of paper and emphasizing the durability of our premium prints. Each print should become a real piece of art with your unique and custom star map.
Quality features of our fine art prints:
– High quality premium paper (+240 gsm)
– Up to 200 years light-proof colors
– Fine art print, UV-resistant ink
– Protected and neutral packaging
Picture frames – Will the images be sent with frames?
Unfortunately, we currently do not offer a frame service. However, we are already working on being able to offer posters & picture frames in the future.
Can I purchase the star map as a digital file (JPG & PDF)?
Yes, you can also purchase the star map as digital printing file with us. When purchasing a digital printing file, we will send you both, a JPG & PDF file. Both files can be used for printing. A digital file is especially useful if you run out of time, or if you want to edit the file further or if the same print should be made several times.
The JPG format (300 DPI) is a common image format. No installation of additional programs is required. Printers allow you to print JPG files as it is a widely used image format. The JPG file contains the ICC profile sRGB IEC61966-2.1, which is often suggested by online printing shops.
The PDF format (300 DPI) is also a widely used printing format. In order to open the file, a PDF reader is required (e.g. Adobe Acrobat Reader). The PDF / X-1a: 2003 printing file contains the widely used ICC profile Coated FOGRA39.
Star map – Is the star map accurate?
Yes, our star maps are accurate. We have developed software that enables us to accurately calculate your starry sky for any place, date and time. We use german & european star catalogues (e.g. Hipparcos Catalogue from the European Space Agency) to precisely locate and map the stars to your design.
