First off, thanks for visiting my website! I appreciate the opportunity to share my art with you. I take pride in creating photographs that evoke a wide range of emotions. My goal is to offer several different display options that will best serve your style and provide a better viewing experience in any interior space. Additionally, other than loose prints, all my display options are ready to hang, eliminating the inconvenience of time spent working with a local frame shop. On this page I will provide the information necessary to ensure the print option you select will work best for you. However, to ensure you are completely satisfied with your print choice, I encourage you to contact me via a message or phone call.
Fine Art Photo Prints
For those who prefer to take prints to their local framing shop, prints are the way to go. The print option is also the most affordable choice and the quickest turnaround time for delivery.
Photos, unless arranged otherwise, will be printed on professional grade archival glossy metallic papers. The clarity and brilliance of these papers is something to behold. The high-gloss surface on this photo paper results in prints that are sharp, vibrant, and exceptionally rich-looking. They exhibit a slight metallic shimmer, ensuring rich luminous colors with intense black tones. The metallic papers are well suited for nature photos, as they provide that extra pop and depth.
With today's high quality archival printer inks, expect metallic prints to last well over 100 years before any noticeable fading occurs.
Glossy Aluminum Prints
ChromaLuxe aluminum prints provide a stunning vibrant look. Your photo is infused into the metal (called dye sublimation) using a specialty printer and transfer paper along with a heat press to produce an incredibly sleek print with rich & glossy color. All metal prints float from wall 1" with an inset frame and and wire hanging system.
These aluminum prints are an excellent choice for areas with high humidity and heat environments. They also are chemical resistant and can be cleaned with glass or other all-purpose household cleaners. With unique coatings, the provide incredible scratch and abrasion resistance.
Under normal interior lighting conditions, one can expect ChromaLuxe prints to last approximately 64 years before beginning to show any noticeable fading or color changes.
Each ChromaLuxe product comes ready to hang, complete with appropriate hanging hardware suitable for traditional wall installations. As true with all wall art, proper lighting will accentuate the piece, however, aluminum prints maintain their beauty generally better than other print options in a variety of lighting conditions. Thus, I highly recommend aluminum prints for most home displays.
For a balance of cost and stunning beauty, ChromaLuxe aluminum prints are a great choice!
The special coating on the Chromaluxe prints can at times show subtle imperfections which at regular viewing distance would typically not be seen. The manufacturer does everything they can to avoid obviously imperfect metal particularly when it can't be hidden within the image. Please note I cannot accept returns based on these subtle imperfections.
Acrylic Fine Art Print
For the ultimate gallery quality image, a TruLife® acrylic fine art print provides an unmatched visual experience. Acrylic prints display image color, vibrance, and clarity that is simply stunning!
Acrylic face mounting is gaining popularity among those wanting a superior presentation with vibrancy that no other framing or mounting option can match. The acrylic mounting entails printing the photo on high quality photo paper(glossy or metallic), then face mount your image to the acrylic (plexiglass) so that you're looking through the acrylic at your print. Acrylic is unique in that light refracts within the acrylic (instead of passing through as it does with glass). With the right lighting, your photo almost appears to glow. To keep the print rigid and protected, the back is made with a rigid acid-free board (Dibond®). A recessed float frame hanging system is attached to the back which results is a stunning presentation which appears to float off the wall with no external framing required.
As with my fine art photo prints, I prefer to use metallic glossy paper for my acrylic prints. Expect well over 100 years before any noticeable color shifts or fading.
Ther are many types of anti-reflective acrylic available, however only one I feel provides the best viewing experience. TruLife® acyrlic is a museum gallery quality acyrlic that reduces glare approximately 25% while providing additional benefits such as more UV protection, much better scratch resistance, and anti-static properties to minimize dust.
TruLife® acyclic fine art prints are made with the finest materials ensuring not only superb visual quality, but a piece of gallery quality artwork that would be the centerpiece of any home or business. With proper lighting, a TruLife® acyclic print is the one display format that would be guaranteed to be a jaw-dropping and brilliant gallery quality art piece!
