fotoflōt Review

Fotoflot ReviewThe great folks over at fotoflōt were kind enough to share one of their amazing print products with me using one of my favorite shots of Liam from when he was 3 months old.

Their display techniques are some of the most unique methods I’ve ever seen and I think they add so much interest and modern elegance to your photos.

I recently received my 10″x15″ print on matte photo paper and made quick work of mounting it on my wall. And it looks great!

They create the fotoflōts on large panels that are cut with a laser, and because of that precision, every pixel of your image will be on the product, eliminating the loss of important edge detail by trimming or by being covered up by a mat when framing. And the print quality is fantastic and very true to the colors and values of my original. An absolute must!

One of the other great things about the print itself is the matte, glassless finish. When framing your prints, glass will produce reflections and glare which detract from viewing the photo as it was meant to be observed.

The coolest part of these products has to be the mounting system. It’s an elegant process, I must say. You simply mount a plate to the wall (making sure it’s level, of course) and snap the print on. The photo has magnetic cups on the back that pair with magnetic discs on the mount to provide a secure hold while maintaining the flexibility to change out the print with another with ease.

The one thing that didn’t quite meet my expectations, though isn’t a deal-breaker for me, is the distance that the print floats away from the wall. The small mounting plate on the back is what provides the physical and visual separation from the wall that creates the floating effect. From pictures on their site , it appeared that the print would come out more than the 1/2 inch or so that it does. It still looks really cool, I was just expecting it to stick out an inch or two. Really the only downside, and it’s not even that big of a deal for me.

All-in-all, the fotoflōt product line is excellent and offers a truly unique, custom, and professional way to present your images. And I would highly recommend them!

    Hi Jason,

    fotoflot looks nice, but the link is broken. Can you update it, please? I tried the logical, http://www.fotoflot.com and got a 404.
