*Please scroll down for pricing.
First of all, I want to thank you for your interest in purchasing my work.
Here are a few important things you should know when purchasing any of my prints:
My work is sold in three fine art mediums. All 3 mediums are of the highest quality prints currently available with the finest thick stock paper and canvas on the market. Fade resistance in low to moderate lighting conditions is guaranteed to last 100 years by the Epson Company. Using UV glass on paper prints will further protect your print in bright or direct lighting conditions.
The 3 fine art mediums include:
-Lustre, which is a semi-gloss finish.
-Metallic (or Pearl) is a long lasting, contrasty print that somewhat shimmers when properly illuminated... These are great for use with a track lighting system to show off your art.
-Wrapped Canvas... This medium is gaining popularity and is sought after by many collectors. Although prints are significantly more expensive than the other mediums, with these you have the advantage of not having to frame them. Anybody who has ever taken any kind of print to be custom framed and has had their heart set on a certain frame style, knows how costly framing can be. Wrapped canvases are a great way to show off your new piece (no frame = less distraction). These are professionally stretched and gallery wrapped on an internal wood frame, just like popular oil painting canvases would be. These are also not the commercial grade, lower quality canvas prints that you'd find in chain stores. They also don't come with a cheesy paint brush effect... Just a high quality print on high quality canvas.
Lustre and metallic prints ordered here are prints only. I strongly recommend taking your new print to a custom frame shop and having it mounted and matted before framing. Mounting metallic prints is tricky, so make sure your framer is familiar with mounting these sorts of prints. Otherwise, your metallic print may be ruined (as I've learned the hard way). Matting is important as it separates the print from the glass, which otherwise may become ruined when humidity and condensation cause them to stick together.
Another good reason for custom framing is, most popular art and department stores seem to only sell frames and mats in a 4x5 ratio (8x10, 16x20, 24x30 etc.). These days (ever since 35mm film became popular), the ratio for a full size image is 2x3. These are basically 8x12, 12x18, 16x24, 20x30, etc.
Most of the time, I feel it would be a waste to cut that much of an image out just for the sake of making it fit a more commercialized frame. Custom framers can fit any size print into the frame of your choice.
Also please keep your print in it's protective plastic sleeve or tube until you are ready to frame it. This will prevent damage.
For wrapped canvas... Just unpack it, and mount it on the wall of your choice.
"Floating" frames are now available for these canvas prints. Again, framing these is not necessary.
When ordering one of my prints;
Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery. Often, images will be sent much sooner. However, there is a chance that I may be out of town, often in a tent with no internet access trying to add to my image collection.
My images, when ordered directly from my site, are inspected for quality, blemishes, scratches, color accuracy, etc. before being signed (and in the case of limited editions, numbered) and shipped to you.
If the print is damaged during the shipping process, please let me know on the day you get it, send it back and I will send you a new one.
TO PLACE AN ORDER, simply shoot me an email describing the image(s) you would like printed. I will reply with a confirmation and an attachment of a low resolution image. Most images have titles, if not, they should have an ID number (example IMG-9457 or a number like 63)... I sometimes can't decide on a title for an image.
Once it is confirmed that the image, size and fine art medium are correct, I will follow up with a Paypal invoice for easy payment.
Sizes are in inches; 12x18 would simply be 12 inches by 18 inches, etc.
*Metallic or Pearl:
*Please be sure you and your custom framers handle metallics carefully, these are extremely glossy and fingerprints are difficult to remove. It is best to use cotton gloves to handle these, which I will include with purchase. Also be sure that your framer knows how to mount these. Traditional mounting of glossy prints will usually show dimpling throughout the image and does not work well with metallics and pearls.
I guarantee my own work, however I do not guarantee the framers work, sorry.
Gallery Wrapped Canvas:
"The best bang for your buck"
As explained above, these canvases are more costly (it is a very expensive process, even for me), but since you don't have to take them to be custom framed, you end up with more money in your pocket.
I recently went out with my mother looking to custom frame a 16x48 panoramic print that I made for her. The quotes we got were outrageous! We went to 4 different frame shops... On the low end (a frame that we weren't crazy about, but worked) we got a quote for $325.00 with regular glass. On the high end (coming from one of those popular department stores that always seem to be offering a supposed "60% off" custom framing) we got a quote as high as $1,600.00 -that not a typo... Sixteen hundred dollars with museum glass at "60% OFF"!!! I used to have access to framing equipment (not anymore), so I never really noticed how expensive framing can be, until now.
Of course, canvas prints can be framed if you want. You still save money framing these because it cuts out some of the mounting costs and you dont need to put any glass or mats on them. To save you time and hassle, I now also offer these with 4 designs of "Floating Frames" with 4 different color options per design. Samples and price list coming soon for this option. Meanwhile, contact me via email for wrapped canvas and floating frame package prices.
LIMITED EDITION INFO:
Currently, I am honoring equal prices for limited editions numbered "20" and higher. Numbers 19 and under are usually kept in my private collection until all other numbers are sold out or a specific number is desired by a customer.
-Requested numbers 11-19 will be an additional 10%
-Requested numbers 1-10 will be an additional 25%
Again, if you do not wish to request a number, prices are the same as the open editions (price list above).
Here is the example of the number you might see on a limited edition:
This is usually found either on the lower left of the print or under my signature.
36/100 means that this is the 36th print in a total of 100 prints that I am willing to produce at any size. If and when all 100 are sold out, the image will no longer be printed as fine art and if I someday become famous, the value of your print will increase. ; )
Thank you once again...
I hope you enjoy your new fine art piece.
