Share

Our friends and colleagues at iPhoneArt.com have launched a KickStarter campaign in order to raise enough money to create high end print products. They have been developing new printing techniques for digital art and photography for several years. Their focus on mobile arts has enabled them to design two new products that will be accessible to all.

They have a target of $30,000 and have some way to go, they’re currently on $3,037 with 27 days to go and as with most Kickstarter projects, it will not be funded if the target is not reached.

The framing/mounting options are nice. The wooden feet for the dimensional glass could be a little less clunky IMHO. Love the Bamboo and the floater stand off wall mount though!

Please note that I believe the imaging process to be inkjet dye sublimation. I worked extensively with his process several years ago imaging ceramic tile commercially. This process has been around for a decade. The image is sharp and color is reasonably true to the original but it will fade if exposed to direct sunlight or strong florescent.

Good news! I had the opportunity to speak with the developer via email about his process. He claims that dye sub is only one of several approaches they’re taking, several of the others employ a UV process which should produce a product less prone to fading.

Keep in mind that everything fades in time, even a traditional dark room print can only withstand the ravages of direct light for 80-100 years. Inkjet dye sublimation was notoriously worse however exhibiting image degradation in as short a period as 18 months.
