Frequently Asked Questions and Our Recommended Lighting

 - What Are The Advantages of Your Frameless Acrylic and Plaq Mounted Formats? 

 

  • They are ready to hang the moment you unpack the artwork
  • Acrylic and PlaqMounted artworks are fully encapsulated and protected from moisture, dust and UV light
  • Pre-mounted artwork reduces the cost of bringing a loose print to a frame shop
  • They are much lighter 
  • Low maintenance - much easier to clean and care for 
  • French cleat float-mount hanging solution is the most secure method to hang art 
  • No framing, brittle glass sheet coverings or distracting mat board to deal with or pay for
  • 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 I have an Acrylic Print placed into a Frame?

Yes. Any qualified local art framing studio can handle this for you, and, they look wonderful paired with traditional frames. The best solution is to bring the Acrylic piece with you to experience the frame options in person. Just ask them to drop it into a frame of your choice, and you are done!

- Can I have your Plaq-Mounted Print Formats Framed?

Doing so would defeat the purpose of the beautiful beveled wood toned edge treatments. They are intended to be enjoyed in their native optional wall mount choices. For a beautiful mounted rigid substrate you can frame, consider an Acrylic.

 

- What Lighting Do You Recommend for Your Acrylic and PlaqMounted 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 phenomenal vivid colors and details really come to life when combined with the best lighting methods. If you can install simple track lighting or an Art light fixture, this is always best. 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.

- What About Large-Scale Decor Projects or Corporate Clients? 

If you have a large scale project I would be pleased to offer my personal assistance over the phone 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.

- Do you offer Frames and Matts on your website?  

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? 

No, I do not make this option available on my website. Canvas gallery wraps simply do NOT meet my high standards of a fine art print display. I've never been 100% satisfied with this method and I feel it is extremely outdated print technology. The internal frames are subject to warping, leaving uneven visible gaps between the artwork and the wall and the nature of canvas greatly reduces the extreme details of the image.

- Do I Offer Metal Prints?

There are a few undeniable issues to consider with Metal Prints (Chromaluxe) as a fine art photography print format and I no longer feel comfortable allowing my work to be reproduced in this manner. The first being a loss in extremely fine details (slightly blurred) of the image. What happens during the dye-sublimation process is the transfer paper is subject to movement or slippage. The second issue and something I find terribly annoying is the loss of subtle details in the shadow areas. In the industry, we call this "muddy". 

Yet another issue with Metal prints is a visible loss or inaccurate reproduction of colors. Most print labs with integrity are upfront about this and claim the image can expect about an 8-10% loss of detail and color saturation. Lastly, when I visit art shows to browse other artist works, I easily notice most metal prints are very prone to showing the slightest imperfections and "ripples" or waves in the aluminum sheet. This is particularly evident where the mounting hardware is attached from behind. The imperfections are more prominent with a high gloss finish.   

- Do You Ship Outside the USA?

Yes, we do! This is limited to Print Only (paper prints rolled in shipping tubes) and Acrylic mounted pieces.

I've recently partnered with a wonderful fine art print lab in Germany that is also able to create gallery quality Acrylic Mounted Prints and meet my high demands for perfection. At this time, my Acrylic prints are now finally available to be shipped to approved destinations throughout Europe, as well as Australia and New Zealand while providing those clients with much more reasonable shipping and handling fees when compared to shipping them from the USA.  My Plaq Mounted fine art pieces are created in the USA only, and the S&H fees for sending them to European and Australian destinations is rather high. 

- Can You Provide a List of Approved International Destinations?

  • Australia and New Zealand. Allow @ 14 working days for an Acrylic piece to arrive after it leaves the print lab.
  • Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland. Allow @ 9 working days for an Acrylic piece to arrive after it leaves the lab.
  • European Union Countries. Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the UK. Please allow @ 7-9 days after the acrylic piece leaves the lab.
