Prints” are reproductions of my original paintings.
 



Fine art giclee printing involves squirting microscopic dots of ink onto fine quality art paper or canvas. The combination of technology and materials results in stunning vibrancy, realism and longevity.

As stated in the FAQ section, my fine art prints are made by giclee experts using the highest quality materials, technology and craftsmanship. All materials are archival certified. (Archival is a term used in framing and materials science to describe materials that do not degrade with time).


In general, there are two main types of prints available for each of my paintings: Paper prints and Canvas prints.

RAG PAPER:

 

Everyday paper, such as the stuff you put in your computer printer, is made from wood fibers (pulp). Top-quality art paper is made with a mixture of fabric fibers (rag) and wood fibers, hence the term Rag Paper. Because the length of fabric fibers is longer than that of wood, rag-based papers are stronger and more durable. Rag-based papers are acid-free (naturally PH-neutral) and archival in quality.

 

*** IMPORTANT NOTE:  Paper prints should be framed under glass.***

Most commonly, paper prints should be matted as well as framed. In the framing industry, a “mat” is a sturdy, flat piece of paper-based material included within a picture frame, which serves as additional decoration, a border, and to perform other functions such as separating the art from the glass.


Some of my 10 x 8 inch rag paper prints are offered pre-matted. The mat size is 14 x 11 inches and come with a choice of various colors, mostly white, blue, or green. These matted prints are ready for framing in a standard 14 x 11 size frame.


I've discovered over time that many people prefer to choose their own mat color and size at their local frame shop. For this reason, most of my prints are available unmatted as well.



Paper prints come with a 1/2 to 1-inch margin. For example, a 10 x 8 inch image with a 1/2-inch margin makes the overall size 11 x 9 inches. The margin is mainly for matting purposes.


All paper prints are signed and include a Certificate of Authenticity.

STETCHED CANVAS:

 

These reproductions are printed on archival quality canvas and stapled to stretcher bars. Stretcher bars are simply a wooden support that the canvas is fastened to.


Canvas prints can be stapled on the sides or on the back of the bars.

14 x 11" side-staple and gallery wrap stretched canvas prints

 

 

 

 

The side-stapled version is normally used when the print is going to be framed.
The back-stapled version is called Gallery Wrap, and can be hung as is or can be framed.


Side-stapled prints are fastened to 5/8-inch thick stretcher bars. Perfect for framing. The gallery wraps have 1.5 inch bars, and the sides are painted black.

Special order gallery wrap canvas enlargement

 

 

 

 

Most of my images can be enlarged up to roughly 5 feet tall. The thickness of the bars can be 5/8 inch, 1 inch, 1.5 inches, or 2 inches.


Many of my portraits were painted on 14 x 11 inch canvas. Some of the more recent ones are larger. I will normally carry canvas prints that are the same size as the original painting. These prints are virtually identical to the original painting, at a fraction of the cost. In some cases, I have other sizes on hand as well.


 

     Certificate of Authenticity

 

 

 

 

 

 

All of my canvas prints are limited editions. In most cases, the edition size is 250. This means that once 250 prints are sold, there will be no more. Limited edition prints can increase in value and can be an excellent investment.


A Certificate of Authenticity is included with prints.

Secure shipping

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prints are enclosed in a protective envelope with a sturdy backing, then
wrapped in kraft paper, and shipped in a cardboard box to prevent damage in transit.
