Paper/Prints FAQ

      Your print is printed on the highest quality paper available whether it's high gloss photo, matte photo, or fine art paper  These papers will always bring  out  the best in your print and represent it as  it was intended.  Prints are also available on Metal print, Canvas Wrap, and  Sealed Acrylic  upon  quote request , please  use the contact form               to send  your  quote request.  Framing is also available upon request.   Photos of print papers below  show finish and texture of each paper , the photos are not mine and were supplied by the manufacturer for this purpose only.  Click  the images for magnifier mode to inspect the papers close up. 


 Each print  is printed with a border addition of 3/8 which means the print size stays the same as listed and is printed on larger paper.  The border not only frames out your art but leaves room for mounting and matting without having to cover part of the image for framing. 

      Certain colors, subjects  and textures  require a different print paper to bring the photo to life as it was intended, to lend feel , mood  and  atmosphere to the image.   The paper your print is printed on was chosen for these qualities  so your prints exhibit the artistic expression  intended.    


Each print is personally inspected by me and then signed  on the lower right border as well as the back with Number and date.   If anything, no matter how small , doesn't meet my standards another print is made and you will be notified of the delay and leaves  zero chance of a bad print being sent out to any  customer.
