I am pleased to offer my prints in three formats: infused glossy metal prints, metallic prints and canvas prints.
All but the Glossy Metal Prints are produced using a state-of-the-art twelve ink archival Canon Lucia EX pigment ink printer. The pigment inks combine the gloss of dye ink with the vivid colors and weather resistance of pigment ink. With this printing technology, colors are more true to image than that of chemical prints and can achieve 1200 dpi resolution with ink drop sizes as small as 4 pico liters. The printer's built in calibration system achieves consistent results and allows prints to be processed in 16-bit format. Products with these prints have a greater than 115 year archival rating by the Wilhelm Institute.
INFUSED GLOSSY METAL PRINTS
Unlike the other display options which involve a mounted fine art ink print, infused glossy metal prints involve an entirely different dye sublimation printing technique. The image is infused into a polyester-coated sheet of aluminum in a high pressure heat press. The dyes sublimate from a solid to a gas and transfer to the metal print, where they solidify in the polyester coating. When finished, the way light shines through the surface coating and through the image itself gives the metal prints a luscious appearance and an amazing sense of depth. A recessed 1/2" aluminum frame with French cleat hanging system allows these metal prints to have a floating dimension while hanging securely and discretely.
Photos are printed on metallic fine art paper, which has a metallic-like surface and higher gloss than regular photo paper. These prints yield a pearlescent metallic sheen that gives prints a sharp, vibrant, and exceptionally rich-looking appearance. These prints are then acid-free mounted to a premium 1/16"-thick sheet of precision cut, hand-polished aluminum. The print is then sealed with a special semi-matte UV laminate, which protects the print and eliminates reflections while maintaining excellent image clarity and contrast. A recessed 3/4" aluminum frame with French Cleat hanging system allows these metal prints to have a floating dimension while hanging securely and discretely.
Canvas paper prints are finished in smooth satin for the highest quality and sheen, and are mounted on a backing that consists of a 1/8" acid-free, rigid and lightweight substrate mounted on a 1-1/2" wood stretcher frame. Each canvas print is protected with an acid free, fine art protective coating to give it moisture resistance and UV protection. The sides of the frame are mirrored, although solid colored sides are available upon request. Canvas prints come with a standard aluminum French Cleat hanging system and include instructions for hanging. A wire hanger option is also available upon request.
CAN'T DECIDE WHICH MOUNTING OPTION TO ORDER?
The biggest difference in these mounting options is the glossy versus semi-matte surface. If you like shiny, glossy prints, you should choose Infused Glossy Metal prints. If you like the slightly more natural look of a semi-matte or satin finish, choose the Metallic prints. Canvas prints have minimal reflection.
All print display options look their best under good direct lighting, such as halogen or LED track lights pointed directly on the prints. But, perfect gallery lighting conditions aren't always an option, so your expected lighting conditions are another factor to consider.
In rooms that have large, bright windows where reflections could be problematic, choose the Metallic or Canvas prints. If, on the other hand, the print will be hung in a fairly dim room without direct lighting, Infused Glossy Metal prints will provide the most striking display.
The Glossy Infused Metal and Metallic print options offer the most breath-taking presentations. The Glossy Infused Metal prints have a luscious finish and a tremendous sense of depth. The Metallic prints provide the most most detail, unrivaled by any other format.
