All prints are created through a local print house using a high-resolution large format ink jet printer. Each print is personally inspected prior to shipping for color accuracy and overall quality. Prints will arrive flat, unmated, signed and numbered (if limited edition) on the lower front with the image title and the year the original image was made. It is important to note that you may notice slight color and density differences when comparing an image on-screen with a final print due to monitor variations.
Choosing a print medium for an image is an important and often times overwhelming process. Each print medium has its own unique characteristics and personality. For that reason, I will briefly describe the print mediums that I currently offer.
Metal Fine Art Prints
Metal Fine Art Prints are dye infused directly into specially coated aluminum sheets, creating truly archival works of art. Metal Fine Art Prints showcase a revolutionary new medium that is highly durable, waterproof, weatherproof, and ultra scratch-resistant. The unique printing method gives photos a vibrant luminescence with incredible detail and resolution.
Fuji Pearl offers sharp detail and high intensity colors. Fuji Pearl has a great dynamic range, and looks stellar with black and white images. Similar to Kodak Endura Metallic, this paper has an archival life of 100 years in a typical home display environment and up to 200 years in dark storage. This is one of my favourite paper types! Unfortunately, I can only offer Fuji Pearl for prints sized 16" x24" or larger.
Kodak ENDURA Metallic
Metallic paper has a glossy finish and metallic appearance that creates images with exceptional visual interest and depth. In addition to delivering rich, vibrant colors, this paper has an archival life of 100 years in a typical home display environment and up to 200 years in dark storage.
Giclée Fine Art Prints
Giclée Fine Art Prints are made with high-quality archival inks using a high-resolution large format inkjet printer. The premium inks produce images with smooth tones and rich colors. I currently offer the following paper surfaces: Canvas and Watercolor.
The Giclée process enables us to print directly onto museum-quality canvas material, so prints will not separate over time. Protective spray coating is applied to the surface of each print to help prevent scratches and other damage. Canvas prints are available in four different mounting options: Canvas Board, Canvas Stretch, Canvas ThinWraps, Loose Canvas.
Rich, saturated colors; deep dark tones and finely nuanced light tones; and the look and feel of an actual watercolor or pastel painting. A heavy, 310g 100% cotton fiber based paper is used that is finished with a water-based protective spray. Due to the stunning colors and matte finish, digital watercolor Giclée prints take on the look of a masterpiece painting.
