Fine Art Prints ~ Frequently Asked Questions
Thank you very much for considering ordering a printed image. Below are answers to a few questions that may come up. If you have other thoughts or concerns, please feel free to contact me. I'll respond to your email as soon as possible.
Who prints your work?
All prints up to 16” x 24” are custom printed by me in my studio. The prints are produced on a professional Epson printer using archival UltraChrome HDR Inks for longevity and luscious color. I take great care and pride in seeing that each print is as luminous and beautiful as possible.
Do you print limited editions?
All my prints are currently open editions which means that they are created and sold upon request.
What size prints do you offer?
I currently offer print sizes from 8 x 10 to 16 x 24 inches.
Please Note: Some of my images come in sizes that require a custom frame because their original composition is unable to be cropped without loosing balance or subject matter. Whenever possible, I crop the images to fit standard frames available in most frame shops. I have indicated on each image, which ones are standard and which ones will require custom framing.
What type of paper do you print on and is the print archival?
Each image is printed on archival, acid-free, fine art paper with archival pigmented inks. Currently, I am using the following papers: Epson Hot Press Bright (matte) and Canson Photographic Baryta (semi-gloss). The specific paper is carefully chosen to bring out the nuances, richness and beauty of each piece.
Please Note: Direct exposure to sunlight will cause accelerated fading of the print. Make sure that you hang your print away from direct exposure to the sun.
Do the prints come matted or framed?
All prints are sold unmatted and unframed.
Are your prints signed?
Yes. All prints are signed on the back.
Will the colors look exactly like they do on my monitor?
All monitors display color differently so I cannot guarantee the image will look exactly like the version on your monitor. If you would like a 4"x 3" sample, email me with the link of the print you are interested in along with your mailing address and I will send you a proof.
How soon can I expect my order?
Prints typically ship in 3-5 business days from the date of sale. Domestic US shipping usually takes 3-5 business days from the shipped date, international orders can take up to 6 weeks. You'll be updated with shipping and tracking information when your order is on the way.
If you are in a rush, please email me and we can arrange to have your order arrive sooner when possible.
Please note: The recipient is responsible for all international customs or duty fees.
How will the prints ship?
Art prints larger than 8 x 10 inches will ship in a 4 to 6 inch sturdy, diameter tube. Art Prints will be carefully rolled and inserted into the tube. Please note, extra care should be taken when removing the print from the tube to prevent creases. The print will completely flatten when matted and framed.
US orders will be packed with a stiff backing in a sturdy mailer to ensure safe arrival.
International orders larger than 8 x 10 inches will ship in a 4 to 6 inch sturdy, diameter tube. The art will be carefully rolled and inserted into the tube. Please note, the same care should be taken when removing the print from the tube to prevent creases. The print will completely flatten when matted and framed.
