ABOUT | March means Month of Photography! This month’s PhotoVox programming will look a little different as we present a free virtual seminar on alternative methods for presenting photographs sponsored by Digital Silver Imaging.

A matted and framed print isn’t always the only option. In this virtual show-and-tell presentation, Eric Luden of Digital Silver Imaging will discuss the finer points of finishing a print for exhibition and display. Questions pertaining to archival stability, durability, and cost will be addressed along with aesthetic consideration. Finishing is often the most expensive part of making a print, this seminar will help you make the right finishing decision and give you some budget friendly alternatives.

Topics will include:

  • Mounting substrates explored – Foam core, Gator, Dibond, Aluminum
  • Protective coatings – types of coatings and purposes
  • Lamination – when and how to use this option
  • Framing alternatives

Digital Silver Imaging (DSI) is the first, and only, New England-based photo lab to integrate photographic laser technology and classic black & white printing. This technology is why Eric Luden started this lab in 2008. Since 2008 DSI has added color pigment inkjet printing, mounting, matting and framing.


PhotoVox is a monthly program offered by the Colorado Photographic Arts Center to help you strengthen your artistic voice with the support of other photographers and artists in the Denver Metro community. Meetings are held monthly at either CPAC’s downtown gallery or virtually on Zoom, and feature discussions led by local arts and community leaders. Three sessions per year are dedicated to portfolio sharing.
