Each and every photo is more than just an image to me, and I take a great amount of pride in producing a high quality final product. This Products page covers the materials and processes used to produce my artwork to help ensure it is displayed at its best.
Modern in styling, metal prints offer a unique way to display photos in a minimalist, yet vivid format. Aluminum sheets are covered with a special coating, which allows dyes to infuse directly on the surface, creating a rich and vibrant image. Prints are then affixed with a hanger that floats the image about 1/2" off the wall. The finished product is then packaged and shipped to you.
For other presentation styles, it all starts with the print. . .
Driven by perfection and quality, I spent a great amount of time testing numerous papers and print methods. Comparing them all side-by-side, I selected an amazing print vendor that uses a professional Chromira printer to create exceptionally sharp images on Fuji Crystal Archive Supergloss paper. The Chromira utilizes very finely focused LED light to expose the chromogenic photographic paper, which is then processed with RA-4 photo processing. The resulting images are exceptionally rich, vibrant, and life-like and seem to glow when illuminated due to silver halide crystals embedded in the polyester base material. I personally inspect every print to ensure they meet my high quality standards before signing and then presenting them in one of the following methods:
Prints are presented within a 100% pure cotton white museum board that is lignin-free and pH neutral to ensure print longevity, and all linen mounting tapes are acid-free and archival quality to prevent yellowing over time. Each mat is individually cut to match the print and aspect ratio, and then meticulously assembled to be ready for framing. The matted image is shipped in a protective bag and then sandwiched between reinforced cardboard layers.
Museum Mount Prints:After signing, the prints are face mounted to a clear acrylic sheet and reinforced with an exhibition-quality aluminum composite Dibond backer. This creates a very flat and stable image that can then be floated off the wall on a lightweight cleat mount that is applied to the back. This mounting technique provides a very clean and professional frameless presentation that has a great amount of vibrance and depth. This finished product is then packaged and shipped to you.
More than just a standard framing presentation, prints are signed and then face mounted to non-glare acrylic, with an exhibition-quality aluminum composite Dibond backer. The image is then presented behind either a black or white linen liner that is custom made for each print and then mounted into a frame of your choice. All liners are handmade from hardwood frames that I then wrap with 100% pure linen to give a subtle, yet professional texture that adds depth to the presentation. All frames offered on this site are real wood and have been hand selected due to their quality and aesthetics. When completed, this presentation stands out with its unique textures, rich colors, and vibrant image presentation. Framed pictures are wrapped in plastic, supported in shipping foam, and then placed in a protective container and shipped directly to you. Due to the wide variety of size, frame, and liner options for this presentation option, please contact us to help you with your custom framing order. We will gladly help you select an option that matches your style and works well with the print.
