I have a couple 20x30 prints i'm putting in a gallery show in a couple weeks. Taken with film if that matters.. The gallery wants me to describe the type of prints they are, like "gelatin silver print", or "chromogenic" for example.. but they're not traditional darkroom prints, I got them from mpix, they're on the "true black and white" paper. How would I describe them that sounds at least semi-classy?

According to the mpix site they're silver gelatin prints, "true" black & white paper, the only difference is its used with a machine which exposes the digi "neg" basically as an enlarger does, projecting the image onto the paper and then through the chemicals, Giclee prints are usually inkjet on rag or fine art type paper and wouldn't give you a print no matter how many times they were exposed to light or put through the soup. h
