About the Prints

The prints are made with an Epson Stylus Pro 7900 printer, which has a 10 color palette and uses pigmented and archival inks, thus insuring the most accurate possible reproduction, the richest color, and prints which will last for many years without fading or deteriorating. This is an inkjet printer and prints made with this technology are sometimes referred to as "giclee prints". This is the technique used to achieve the highest quality of art reproduction.

The original artwork is first photographed with a large format camera to produce 8" by 10" transparencies. These are then scanned at a high resolution to create 250 megabyte digital files. The large file size insures that every detail of the original artwork will be faithfully reproduced, even in the largest print size. The digital files are painstakingly computer edited so that the final print will match the original artwork as closely as possible, in both color and light/dark balance.

These prints are not mass produced "shopping mall" prints. Each one is made to order and personally inspected by the artist. No print that is less than perfect will be shipped out. Your satisfaction is guaranteed!

fine art prints on paper

The paper prints are printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308gsm, a high quality, heavy weight, ultra smooth paper of certified archival grade. This paper is specifically made for the reproduction of paintings and artwork. The paper prints have a matte finish. Each print will have at least a one inch white border to allow for framing and matting. Please note that the paper prints are not coated and are not water resistant. All paper prints are shipped rolled.

fine art prints on canvas

The canvas prints are made using Fredrix Archival Print Canvas, which is of medium weight and texture. The canvas prints are sealed with two coats of Mineral Spirit Acrylic varnish, which protects against damage from ultra-violet light (sunlight) and will not yellow. The sheen is a soft gloss, which minimizes glare. The canvas is stretched on wooden stretcher bars which are 1 5/8" wide and 9/16" thick. The corners are fastened with "v" nails and also glued to insure a rigid connection which will not loosen. However, the two largest sizes of canvas prints, 28" and 33" (short dimension) are not stretched but are shipped rolled up. The reason for this is that the cost of shipping such a large stretched canvas would be substantially greater than the cost of having the canvas stretched by a frame shop. The buyer must take the expense of stretching into account when purchasing one of these sizes. These large sizes will have at least a 3 inch border around the image to allow for stretching. They are also coated in the same way as the smaller sizes and will not require further varnishing.
