To insure tonal fidelity and capture the minute subtleties of the original photo art, images are custom printed with archival UltraChome pigment inks on a high end, nine color Epson printer. Comparing the finished giclée prints to the images on this site is like comparing Bentleys to bicycles. The highly compressed, low-resolution images you see here can only give the roughest idea of the actual print’s much higher resolution and deep depth of color, tone, and detail.
After much paper experimentation, I currently print on Aurora Art 100% cotton watercolor paper. Luxurious to the touch and specially coated for pigment inks, this smoothly textured 64-lb. paper has a rich feel and character in tune with my photo art images.
Tests have shown prints made with ultrachrome pigment inks can resist signs of fading for a lifetime. For optimum longevity, prints should be framed with acid-free archival materials and UV protective glass or acrylic and hung away from moisture and exposure to harsh light.
All prints are open edition prints, unframed, unmatted and signed in pencil in the bottom margin (with no copyright lines in the image). They can be purchased on three sizes of watercolor paper:
8 1/2 x 11″ – $95.00 11 x 14″ – $135.00 13 x 19″ - $175.00
Images have approximately 1 inch borders to allow for print handling by framers. They are mailed flat with thick, protective backing and sent by Priority Mail with signature required to insure safe delivery. The packaging, postage and handling rate is a flat $20.00 for USA delivery no matter the size or number of prints ordered. For global sales, the First Class International Mail charge is $30.00 no matter the size or number of prints ordered.
I guarantee all my work. Anyone not completely delighted with their print can email me and return it in new condition in the original packaging within 10 days for a refund, minus return shipping costs.
