Which MediUM and SIZE should I choose for my image?
We offer a wide variety of media and sizes for fine art images:
Fine Art Paper – All of the fine art paper offered for my prints is “archival” which refers to the quality of the paper. True archival paper is made of cotton fibers and has a lifespan of more than 100 years. Prints on archival paper create beautiful, high-resolution finished artwork. My images are offered on either smooth or watercolor fine art paper, depending (at my discretion) on which media they will look best. I offer a "print only" or a “print with 1-inch border” option. In this case a 1-inch border is added to the image size, so an 8x10” photo will arrive 10x12” etc.; this is ideal if you want to mount and frame the image yourself. For best long-term results and to protect your image for years to come, having the image matted and framed is the best option.
Metal Prints - High gloss metal is a beautiful choice and is a relatively new medium in fine art printing. It makes the photo come to life with high resolution and rich colors. High gloss metal has one drawback however, and that is glare. This is why I offer my prints on a "satin finish" metal. The image will still have the crispness and bright colors but without the glare from the lighting and without a glossy finish.
Wrapped Canvas - Gallery-wrapped canvas is a terrific option for images with lots of bright, light areas. Many of my Dreamscapes look lovely on canvas, which tends to soften the image a bit. For larger image sizes, canvas is lighter and easier to hang, a good thing to keep in mind as you are making your selections.
Acrylic Prints - Acrylic prints offer that pop of color and ultra high definition that makes people stop and say "Wow!" Acrylic prints are glossy and extremely durable. These prints are weather and water resistant and suitable for bathrooms and other humid environments.
Sizes - I highly recommend you take advantage of our website's augmented reality (AR) option in order to see what your chosen image will look like on your own wall. Simply choose "Live Preview AR" on the product page and use any smart phone or tablet to view the art piece in various sizes in your space. This is a wonderful new feature that I am proud to offer my art community!
If you are uncertain about what size or medium to pick for your favorite image, please contact me! I will gladly offer my expertise in solving your printing questions or issues. I want you to be thrilled with your art purchase!
Why don't you offer framed prints?
That's a great question! My fulfillment partner only offers plexiglass with their frames, instead of glass. I happen to be very picky about the quality of my finished work. Plexiglass just doesn't cut it. I understand the reasoning; because it's lighter (which means less shipping cost) and there's very little chance it could break. But I prefer "art glass" (actual glass!) or a high quality non-glare glass, which is what I always use when I frame things myself. So I recommend that you find a local framer who can help you choose not only a beautiful mat but a good quality glass to go with your frame.
