The inks may be used in three colors which is known as RGB or may be used in four colors which is CMYK. If you want to generate infinite shades and colors in your images, then the entire twelve color range can be used. This will allow in the modification of specific details from the original work. There can be changes in texture, color and other crisp details. The ink quality remains so good that each stroke of the brush in the painting can be easily legible. The inks are UV protected and will prevent discoloration and fading for over 100 years.
Accuracy: The print is so accurate that it does not show fine lines, dots or even unwanted borders. That means the final print will never display any sign of the printing process.
Medium of Print: Different looks are available in different medium. Paper or canvas can be used for the fine print.

The porosity standard of these papers are also specific that allows the inks to be glued in the surface without much absorption or fading.
Scan Process: The original scan process must go through a standard of high quality. All the skills and knowledge will be wasted if the scan process is not properly done.

As the process captures every tiny detail, a small hair, a fine line or a scratch will definitely show up after the final print.
After Effects: Different after effects can be applied in the fine art prints. The prints can be made glossy or matte according to your requirement. The brush strokes can be visible or undistinguishable whichever way you want it as your final print. The careless-careful effect can be applied by producing the torn effect on the edges of the print. This effect has become popular since the last decade. A protective finish layer can also be applied through an acrylic to protect the paint from light, water and external scratches.
