Loco Foto Photographic Prints

Loco Foto specialises in photographic prints of steam locomotives.

We have a wide range of images available and offer a range of print size from a small 12 x 9 inch (305 x 230 mm) print, to very large 64 x 48 Inch (1625 x 1220 mm).

We supply vinyl prints that are mounted onto 15mm MDF, finished with a black edging. The MDF provides a solid support that prevents the print from distorting whilst being displayed.

The laminate offers a degree of protection and can be cleaned using a dry cloth. The Vinyl prints and laminate are guaranteed for 7 years image perfect.

The prints are supplied with metal corner pieces that help protect the prints from damage.

For those that prefer their artwork to be traditional we also offer canvas prints that are stretched over a substantial wooden frame.

The wooden frame is a solid fronted type using 45mm x 32mm hard wood for the frame and 5mm hardboard to give a solid front face for a sturdy surface for the canvas to be mounted to.

The selected image is printed onto an artistic matt white 440g/m canvas, which is cut to size and stretched around the hardwood frame. The corners are cut and folded removing any excess, stapled and taped for a tidy finish. Picture hanging hooks are then screwed in place.

Artistic Canvas (FR) has been specifically designed for authentic painting reproductions. Even at close distances graphics printed on IP 2310 give the impression of real paintings. IP 2310 offers very good printability and extremely vivid colours.

For those that prefer a more modern look to their artwork we can offer Perspex prints.

The image is printed onto clear vinyl in reverse then backed up with white vinyl. The image is then applied to reverse of the Perspex. A hole is drilled in each corner and stainless steel barrel fixings are used to mount the picture to the wall.

The stainless steel barrel fixings are available in a range of sizes and colours. Please contact us for details.

The 5 mm clear Perspex is cut to desired size and finished to remove rough edges. The Perspex sheet offers good protection and the front surface can be cleaned using warm water and a damp cloth.

The ink is guaranteed for 6 years when exposed to direct UV light and will last considerably longer if not exposed to direct sunlight.

We can also supply un-mounted paper or vinyl prints and you can choose to have framed in a style that suits the environment where the print is to be displayed.

We can produce square prints. These can be small 9 x 9 inch (230 x 230 mm) or larger 39 x 39 inch (1 Metre Square). We offer a bespoke service to produce any print, including any of your own work, to the dimensions of your choice.

Please contact us for further details.
