Frequently Asked Questions and Our Recommended Lighting

 What Are The Advantages of Your Premium Luxury Print Formats

  • They are ready to hang the moment you unpack the artwork
  • Acrylic, Metal Prints, and Wood-Plaq artworks are fully encapsulated and protected from moisture, dust and UV light
  • They are shatterproof. Traditionally framed prints (glass) is heavy and unsafe.
  • Pre-mounted frameless artwork eliminates the cost of taking Photo prints to a frame shop.
  • They are much lighter than having a local frame shop to provide traditional services 
  • Low maintenance - easier to clean and care for 
  • The float-mount hanging solution is the most secure method to hang art 
  • Eliminates the cost for mat-boards and heavy, brittle sheets of glass
  • The details, resolution, vibrancy and visual depth are far more impressive than traditional framed/matted prints 
  • Gallery quality formats that provide opulence and luxury value to your space

Can Acrylic or Metal Prints be Framed

Yes. My professional printing partner that creates my Acrylic and Metal pieces is able to place them into gorgeous slim mounted floater frames. These frames have a slim gap between the frames and the edges of the imagery so the artwork appears to float inside the frame. There are several finishes and styles available. If you are interested in adding a frame to any Acrylic or metal print, please be sure to contact me directly so I can provide you with a quote, and we can go over the options.

 

 

 


Recommended Lighting for my Premium Quality Print Formats

This is a GREAT question asked by clients and yes, properly illuminating my large format pieces in your home makes an impactful difference. The richness and vivid colors and details really come to life when combined with the best possible lighting methods. A good solution is if you can install simple track lighting on the ceiling, or an Art light fixture over the piece itself. If you have a track that accepts low voltage 2-pin socket bulbs you can purchase SoLux Bulbs which are the ultimate solution. Otherwise, traditional screw-in track bulbs or even ceiling mounted recessed lights will accept LED bulbs.  With LED's, the artwork can truly be seen and appreciated as it was intended.

Large-Scale Decor Projects and Corporate Clients 

If you have a large scale project I would be pleased to offer my personal assistance to complete your vision. I've worked with Art project managers for corporate interior designers, and have vast experience with nature-inspired Eco-art therapy pieces needed in Healthcare facilities and Spas. I am able to offer reasonable discount incentives for acquisitions of 5 or more pieces or photo prints. *Large scale orders are not eligible for returns*


Do I offer Framed and Matted Photo Prints   

If you are purchasing my loose "print only" option (just the art print)  then choosing a frame, liner, and mat color for a photographic print should be done after the print arrives at your home. It's always best to experience this in person so you can bring photos of furnishing to match or fabric swatches to pick up colors. I recommend bringing your new Print to a local qualified art framing gallery.  

Do I Offer Canvas Gallery Wraps 

Yes, I'm once again providing mounted Canvas Photo Prints as an option as of March 2020. I have been able to locate a print partner that specializes in high-quality Canvas Gallery Wraps, and they are now part of my team. Improvements include a lightweight yet robust stretcher frame with handcrafted dovetail corner joinery, a more secure hanging system, and print technology that encapsulates the inks in resin which makes them smudge-proof and waterproof right away! 

 

Yes, I Recently Upgrade to DiBond Aluminum - Metal Prints

It's True! This has been a project I've been working on since the autumn of 2018. After nearly a full year of no metal option, I've found a professional print partner that can provide the quality that I demand. I no longer offer the traditional dye-sublimated ChromaLuxe Metal prints due to the issues they present. (I'll get into that in a minute) 

I am thrilled to say I'm offering a serious upgrade to the dye-sublimation method. The new method begins with my imagery being developed on a high-grade photographic paper exposed using state of the art laser technology. The photographic print is then top-mounted over an aluminum DiBond backing composite material that is robust and lightweight. The biggest difference in visual quality is the traditional development of the imagery ensures perfect results. 

In addition, the DiBond material is 3 mm thick offering significant visual depth and has black edges when viewed from the sides. In the past, to achieve that stunning edge treatment around a metal print, you had to upgrade to an Exhibit Mount option. That is no longer necessary. You can achieve that look while saving @ 20% off the Exhibit mount price point! 

To finish off the piece, a durable UV protective seal is placed over the imagery. This high-quality protective laminate is so thin and transparent it does not affect the way the artwork appears. It protects the imagery from harmful UV light, dust, and fingerprints and makes for easy cleaning.

List of issues with Dye-Sublimated Metal Prints

Here is why I decided to upgrade away from dye-sublimated metal. There are a few undeniable issues to consider with ChromaLux dye-sublimated metal prints as a fine art photography print format. I no longer felt comfortable allowing my work to be reproduced in this manner. The first being a loss in fine detail and sharpness of the image. During the dye-sublimation process, the transfer paper is subject to subtle movement or slippage causing the loss of sharpness. A second issue, something I found terribly annoying is the loss of subtle tonal range and contrast details in the shadow areas. In the industry, we call this "muddy". 

Another issue with dye-sublimated Metal is a visible loss of inaccurate color reproduction. Most print labs are upfront about this and claim in the small print you can expect an 8-10% loss of detail and color saturation. Lastly, when I visit art shows to browse other artists' works, I easily notice common dye-sublimated metal is very prone to showing the slightest imperfections, ripples, and waves in the aluminum sheet. This is particularly evident where the mounting hardware is attached from behind. Imperfections are prominent with high-gloss finish. The rigid DiBond aluminum we now use for Metal Prints do not include a single flaw I've listed above.
