Printing Information

Every print is meticulously inspected for color, light, and sharpness before it leaves our office. We want to ensure that every print is treated the same whether it is small or large. Below are the options of printing we have where you can get a better understanding of the product you are ordering. Please allow up to 7-10 days to prepare prints before shipment to your location. 

FINE ART PAPER

 

Fine Art Prints are made with high-quality archival inks on fine art papers using a high-resolution large format inkjet printer. We only use heavy and textured paper, that is built to withstand the test of time. Smaller print sizes are printed in-house while larger sizes are printed in collaboration with a local printer. Paper takes less time to produce, thus allowing it to go from the printer to your home in a quicker amount of time.

 

Additional Options with Fine Art Orders (both of these can be applied to canvas prints):

 

Mounting provides your print with a little added security as this thick and rigid board prevents your print from bending and marking. This is a highly recommended option when placing a fine art or loose canvas print in a frame.


Matting is the border that surrounds your print and helps pull the attention of the viewer towards the image. Matting will also help prevent your image from directly touching the glass or edges of a frame. A white matting will be used for every print order unless another color is requested.

CANVAS

 

Giclee Canvas Prints are a standard in the art industry and are widely embraced for their astonishing quality by major museums, galleries, publishers and artists. The latest inks offer more than 80 years light-fastness and UV-resistance under museum archival conditions. For even better performance, we coat all our canvas prints with a layer of anti-fading UV protective clear satin glaze. Below I go into detail about the two options when purchasing a canvas print to help you decide which is best for you.

Wrapped Canvas prints are ready to be hung the second they arrive as the print is molded around a wood frame. The canvas print shows texture, remarkable detail and brilliant color. The blacked-out edges wrapped around a wooden frame give the image depth and dimension. This versatile display option will compliment any space or décor.


Loose Canvas is printed on the same Giclee canvas that a wrapped print would be, but it is not pulled around a wood frame. These canvas prints are all printed with a 2 inch white frame to allow for proper matting, mounting, and framing (if you choose to do this on your own). All three of the additional options can be added on to your canvas print order. This option is best suited for those looking for an elegant way to hang their print.

METAL PRINTS

 

Metal prints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Your images will take on a magical luminescence. Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking while detail and resolution are unsurpassed. To complement this unique printing method, we have developed a wide variety of creative and modern ways to hang and display your metal print. We finish off our metal prints with a satin finish to give it a smooth and soft appearance, with little to no glare.

 

Metal prints are shipped with a float mount attached to the back so the print is ready for immediate hanging. If interested in framing options for your metal print, please send us a message.
