So I've recently got an image that I'm trying to get printed to a good standard. I've started reading into printing methods and its a very confusing mine field. (CMYK, RGB, matt, glossy, acrylic etc) I'm in way over my head.
Anyway i've been told that my picture is based in RGB colours but the industry standard is CMYK. I converted my poster to CMYK and got it printed, but I'm not entirely happy with the results. I'm fully aware that the full spectrum of RGB can't be printed in CMYK and it may look different on my screen than what is printed in real life. But my print still looks so dull and lifeless.
I have some posters in my room that I bought that are bright, vivid and would be happy with their colour style. I've been trying to find out myself but its very confusing without anyone to ask or even physical copies to look at.
I emailed a high end company and they recommended "Original photo print under acrylic glass". Does anyone here have any advice on what I should go for? I want the highest quality wall hanging poster. If you were to get something printed to hang on your wall what printing style is the best?
I'm looking to get a poster printed, what's the best method of printing for detail/looks for wall hanging?
