Frame Versions

The ALUMA architek frame is available in two versions, The Agency and The Fine Art. Custom Fine Art mats can be cut and polished to your exact media’s dimensions.

The Agency Version has a single layer of acrylic, which presses the desired media being framed directly against the aluminum base. This allows for quick and easy framing and reframing of various sizes of media in the same architek framing system.

The Fine Art Version comes with a precut clear acrylic mat which keeps the top layer of acrylic from touching the media being framed and also adds depth to the look of the framed media. A clear sheet of Mylar backing is provided with all fine art frames for archival applications.

Edge Finshes

All frames come standard with Satin Finished edges.

Satin Edge: Super Smooth Frosted Acrylic Edge (No tool marks).


Print purchase includes free mounting of prints in frames so they arrive ready to hang. Choose from our selection of printing options.

Epson Ultrachrome HDR Inks
Opening a new era in color performance. Epson is once again raising the standard for pigment ink performance with Ultrachrome HDR (High Dynamic Range).

Featuring two extra colors – green and orange – Epson Ultrachrome HDR provides a much wider tonal range. This means higher color accuracy, greater subtlety and smoother gradations. More vivid, natural and dazzling.

The addition of orange and green inks takes inkjet color performance to an entirely new level. Grass and foliage will be much more vivid and natural, while orange tones like sunsets will be more dazzling. Photographers will be delighted to see that the orange ink also lessens the graininess in skin tones. Epson Ultrachrome HDR will give you quality unlike anything you’ve seen before.
