ORDER PRINTS

1/1

Interested in Ordering a Print?

The details below will educate you on everything you need to know about my art, the prints and the process from beginning to end when purchasing fine art photography of mine.

Due to the variations in available mediums, image size/resolution, and aspect ratios, I like to work directly with my clients on choosing the right options for each print as well as exact pricing. Please contact me to begin an order.

If I have not answered your question below, please feel free to reach out to me personally at any time. I enjoy speaking with potential collectors of my work and I am happy to help in any way that I can.

Choosing the Right Medium

I offer four mediums for my prints: Fine art paper, Epic prints, metal prints, and canvas prints.  The right choice of medium largely depends on the image within the photo, your style and your budget. Certain images look better on certain mediums.  As for style, do you prefer more traditional mounting and display options (such as matte and frame)? Or do you lean more towards modern aesthetics (such as frameless or floating mounts)? Below are details on each of the mediums.

 

Fine Art Prints – These are printed on museum-grade papers using archival pigment inks, ensuring they will retain their vibrancy for decades to come, if properly displayed and cared for. While fine art photos are relatively inexpensive, they will need to be framed which significantly increases the cost.

 

Epic Prints – The medium I primarily recommend particularly with photos that have a lot of contrast and colors as the bright tones really pop in the image.  Epic Prints are made from prints on Fujiflex silver halide photographic paper with up to 610dpi resolution, for high-precision clarity that’s as close to “perfect” as print gets. They are then mounted to aluminum (so they are similar to metal prints) for a sleek profile, and a flawless presentation. Finally, I add a thick satin finish to further bring out the epic qualities of the image. These prints can be framed or frameless. If frameless, a float mount hanger can be attached to the back of the print allowing it to hang directly on the wall.


Metal Prints – This is a relatively new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, your images will take on an almost magical luminescence. The ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface is waterproof/weatherproof and can be cleaned easily – just avoid direct sunlight. To help minimize glare, I generally use a satin finish for a smooth finish that's less prone to showing reflections (although there will still be some depending on the setting/lighting). These prints can be framed or frameless. If frameless, a float mount hanger can be attached to the back of the print allowing it to hang directly on the wall.


Canvas Prints – Canvas Prints give the photograph a more painted look and look great on images with more subdued colors. Canvas Prints are made from prints bonded onto museum quality canvas. The resulting prints are then stretched and stapled onto a wood artists stretcher bar frame. The product edges are 1 1/2 inches thick and the image is mirrored on the edges. These prints can be framed or frameless.​

 

To Frame or Not to Frame – My Epic Prints and Metal Prints are finished using a "float Mount" system, creating a ready to hang work of art that does not require exterior framing of any kind. This not only relieves you of the need to pay for expensive external framing, but also creates a visually clean and crisp display that looks striking in any home or business environment. Canvas Prints also come with a wire hanger allowing them to be ready to hang. That said a frame on any of these prints can take it from amazing to stellar.  I am happy to work with you on framing as well. 

Determining the Right Size

It is one thing to view an image on a phone or tablet, or even a monitor, at close distances. Most likely, however, you will be viewing a print on your wall from several feet away; the larger the print, typically, the farther the distance. What may feel like a large print when held in one's hands can quickly dwindle in size and impact once it's placed on the wall. This can be offset, obviously, by opting for a larger print to better fill the wall space, or a grouping of multiple images can be used to achieve the same - or greater - effect (and you will have the added benefit of being able to enjoy more scenes).

Below are some mockups to help you visualize the difference between different print sizes on a wall. Note: Not all photos can be re-sized to all print sizes. Or at least, they will not look nearly as good in some sizes as they will in others. 

Your Investment

Pricing varies due to the choice of medium and image size. I like to work directly with my clients on choosing the right options for each print, on a per-image basis. These variations also impact pricing as well.  But to give you a ballpark estimate, below is a chart of comparable pricing for your investment based on size and medium.

The Importance of Lighting

Before you buy, make sure you have fully considered the lighting environment your artwork will be displayed in. The highest-quality print in the world won't display well without appropriate lighting.

 

Consider adding extra accent lighting that showcases the print (one tip is to aim your light from above at a 30-degree angle which will prevent reflections from the light source. LED bulbs in the 3000k to 4000k light spectrum give the most natural lighting experience.  Additionally, never use fluorescent lighting. These bulbs not only emit a lot of ultraviolet light which can fade the print, but the color of the light distorts the natural colors in your photograph, making them appear unnatural.

 

Make sure that you never place your art on a wall that receives direct sunlight. Even with the UV protection, sunlight contains infrared radiation which will damage and fade your print. Additionally, direct sunlight will create glare and reflection in almost all scenarios!
