Important Points About My Prints (see details below) 

  • Prints have a soft, textured matte, "painting-like" finish not the typical crisp, glossy or semi-gloss photo finish.
  • It may be more economical to do the matting & framing yourself due to packaging & shipping costs.
  • All prints are signed, limited editions. 

    Prints Offered
    I produce what is referred to in the industry as "fine art giclee" prints using the professional-grade Epson 7600 with the latest state-of-the-art ultrachrome ink on Epson's Somerset Velvet paper.  This combination is projected to have an archival life of over 100 years when framed and placed under UV-protected glass, based on information from both Epson America, Inc. and Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc., an independent testing organization.  I prefer the artistic quality of the acid-free, 100% cotton, textured matte finish of the Somerset Velvet which produces a soft, "painting-like" print.  Plus, it has excellent archival life.  Most of the photo art is offered with a 1:1.5 aspect ratio in sizes from 8x12, 12x18, 16x24, 20x30 and 24x36 as signed, limited editions.  Some are offered with a 1:1.0 and 1:1.25 ratios or in a panoramic format of a 1:2.0 and 1:2.5 ratio instead of the 1:1.5 ratio prints.  In some cases the larger sizes are not offered. 

    Note regarding 24x36 and 24x24 inch prints:  These prints are printed on 24 inch wide paper and thus the actual image size will be slightly less (within 1 inch) of 24x36 depending on the border used.

    Limited Editions:
      Each print will be signed and limited to 100 prints per 8x (8x8, 8x10, 8x12, 8x16 or 8x20), 100 prints per 12x (12x12, 12x15, 12x18, 12x24 or 12x30), 50 prints per 16x (16x16, 16x20, 16x24, 16x32) and 25 prints for each larger size offered.  Prices are expected to be increased as each edition sells out.

    Matting & Framing
    Prints are offered as Prints Only or Framed and Matted.  We choose a single or double mat and frame that we believe best suits the actual print.  The matting and framing typically adds 4-5" all around to the print size.  All matting and backing is "acid-free" and the glass is UV protected. 

    Prints purchased as Print Only will be rolled and shipped in a protective box.  They should be matted and framed as described above to assure longevity.  Proper framing is critical to maximizing the presentation and archival life of the photo art.  

    Please review Framing & Shipping before making a decision whether to have us frame or do it yourself.  It is often much more economical for you to frame and mat the prints yourself.

    Print size options along with framed sizes and current prices are shown on the pull-down menu on the product page for each image offered.  Prices are subject to change without notice and will likely be increased as editions sell out.
