Print Details and Options
All prints ordered from this website are one-of-a-kind, just like a painting or drawing or sculpture. Once a print of any size is sold, that image is retired and will not be sold again.
Special-order prints (the ones with a range of sizes and prices, marked "from....." on the Order Prints page) are available in two configurations: mounted on 3/16" Ultra foam board for matting and framing as you choose, or plak-mounted on a stable, rigid substrate, slotted and ready for hanging (see details below). In-stock prints (the ones with fixed prices on the Order Prints page) are either plak-mounted or matted and framed as indicated. All prints have a 1-inch white border, which is included in the size of the print (so, for example, the image size of an 11"x14" print is actually 9"x12"). Both foam-mounted and plak-mounted prints are ink-jet printed on Epson Lustre paper with Epson Ultrachrome archival inks for crisp details and long life. I do not ship loose, unmounted prints because of the damage that often occurs to these prints in handling.
Plak mounting provides a clean, professional look with a neat black edge and UV-resistant coating for a fraction of the cost of traditional framing methods. Additionally, plak mounting allows all the fine details of the image to show clearly rather than being obscured by a glass cover. I am now using plak mounting for nearly all of my gallery shows, and the pictures have been very well received by both judges and patrons.
