All authentic Getty Images Collection prints are printed exclusively by Getty Images in London and accompanied with a Getty Images Certificate of Authenticity.
A modern technique, the face of a Perspex print is adhered directly to a piece of acrylic (also known as plexiglass, Perspex or Lucite) with a clear, pH neutral adhesive. The verso is mounted to an aluminum composite backed with a wood or metal cleat. The mounted C-type prints are well protected and are notable for their deep and brilliant colours. C-type prints are notable for their continuous tone and vibrant colours. C-type prints use dye-based photographic papers and should not be confused with inkjet, or giclée prints.
