Frequently Asked Questions : Fine art Prints (Un-Matted / Matted / Framed)
What kind of paper do you use?
Photo Luster paper for all prints (Un-Matted, Matted, & Framed)
What kind of printer & inks do you use?
Large format Epson printer with pigment inks.
How long will the prints last?
Inks & papers used are rated for over 100 years before any visible quality loss, under normal display conditions.
Do you sign your prints?
I title and sign all of my prints in the lower white space below the printed image.
What is the largest prints you can make?
Square images, 40" x 40"
Rectangle images 40" x 60"
Panoramic images up to 60" long (height depends on image ratio)
How do I order prints larger than what's listed?
Contact me direct to discuss the options. They vary by image, as some can't be enlarged due to resolution issues. Though, most images will hold their visual quality up to the largest sizes I offer.
What color is the mat?
I use a bright white mat (Crescent 9613C) for a simple presentation.
What kind of frame should I buy for the matted print?
It’s entirely up to your décor & tastes, my matted prints should fit in any depth frame you purchase, the mat & foam backing measure less than 3/8” thick.
Can you make a custom size?
Yes, I cut all of my own matting from large sheets so I am able to configure many varieties, up to 40" outside length.
Do you sign your mats?
Yes, I title and sign the mat itself, in pencil, below the image.
Can you do a different color mat?
Technically yes, but picking specific colors online can be difficult without seeing in person. I typically recommend purchasing an un-matted print from me and having it locally matted and/framed yourself. If you know the mat board specifics then I could do the job myself.
Will the frame get damaged during shipping?
Highly doubtful. I make my own boxes with plenty of extra width and depth to fill the space with cushioning that protects the glass and frame. All of my packages are insured, which will cover any costs associated with a replacement I would need to create.
Do you offer any other than the 4 frames you have listed?
No, to keep things simple I offer 4 classic styles for most décor situations:
• Black Brushed Metal Frame
• Light Wood Frame
• Espresso Brown Frame
• Rustic Barn-Wood Style Frame
If you have another frame in mind the best route is to purchase my matted prints.
What type of glass do you use?
Standard framing glass. If you require UV protection or non-reflective coatings the best route is a custom framer local to you and to purchase one of my matted prints.
