C-print: Chromogenic Colour Print, commonly referred to as C-print, is a traditional chemical print on colour paper. Today, laser beams in red, green and blue are most often used to expose the paper. Even black and white digital photographs are developed today as C-print.
Fine Art Print: Digital printing on archive-proof paper, often with a cotton base.
Silver Gelatin: A photographic development method where the image is illuminated on a paper that has been made light-sensitive with silver salts in gelatin and then developed and fixed in chemical baths. This technology has been used since the end of the 19th century to develop black and white analogue photographs.
Silkscreen printing: Graphic method based on the colour being pressed through a fine-mesh fabric stretched on a frame with the help of a squeegee.
