Information on purchasing prints and mounting options of my fine art scenics

 

You have found your way to this page, that must mean you can see some of my fine art landscapes on your wall. For starters if you are looking for my portrait or event packages you are in the wrong page, this is what I offer strictly for my landscapes, a subject I have been shooting for nearly 15 years. Quite a long time indeed. 

 

All photos with available options can be ordered straight from the galleries

 

Printing quality info

All images are printed on Fuji Crystal Archive paper from one of the most reputable sources in existence. The printing is done with the LightJet printer.  LightJets are considered to be the finest quality photographic printers available today. This digital technology provides you the best possible photo printing with edge to edge sharpness that no other photographic large format printer can achieve. These prints are considered museum in quality meaning that they are capable of lasting at least 90 years without fading or coloring when displayed properly (not in continuous direct sunlight or exposed to elements), these are not the type of printing and mounting found at any retail outlets. and unlike online printing services, which do not even check the accuracy of the color representation of the photo before shipping. I am involved in every step of the printing and mounting process which includes print testing prior to the final printing. Guaranteeing my strict standards of the quality of my photographs. With that in mind be advised that the process can take up to 2 to 3 weeks for total production before delivery.

Prints/mounts. For corporate or large scale photo sales I am often available for framing in person (for a $100 fee). Shipping within the Colorado is free, outside of that contact me for a quote, international shipping is also available.

 

Panoramics: I have several photos in my portfolio that are panoramics. The  listed sizes below do not include these panoramic photos. Each panoramic has their own unique size and dimensions, even if a panoramic is printed at 80 inches wide the height of it may only be 20 inches. Plus panoramics will vary significantly regardless of camera resolution (From a maximum of only 40 inches on it's longest to well over 100 inches on the longest end for some). My panoramics are strictly limited edition with only 10 ever being made, each one is personally signed and numbered from 1 to 10. The panoramics come as a Gallery Float (Floating Mount) only, contact me for more info.

 

 

Print prices and available sizes: For prints larger than 60 inches contact me directly, and for anything over 36 inches some older photos might not be available for those sizes due to different camera resolutions (this should not be a major issue as the majority of my photos can go much larger, I do have to mention it as there will be a couple like that). For Print Only the printing process usually takes 4 to 5 days before shipping

 

 

Mounting Options

 

 

I offer 3 different mounting options. Canvas Wrap (with canvas wrap the photo is printed on Canvas Paper and then sprayed with a UV coating) , Gallery Float and Acrylic Mount, these are the best ways of displaying a photo on your wall. I do not normally do traditional framing due to the extensive variations of frames with numerous variances in cost and weight for the same print size, for that my strong recommendation is to buy the print only and add your own frame when you receive it.


 

Canvas Wraps

 

Canvas Wrap: Canvas Wrap is a method of stretching a canvas print and wrapping it around the sides of a wooden frame called “stretcher bars” at a depth of 1 1/2. The canvas wrap is then secured to the back of the frame using staples. Then the canvas print is sprayed with a protective UV coating to increase their longevity when displayed.

Canvas Wraps are ideal luxurious display pieces while fitting within a tight budget

Canvas Wraps usually take 11 business days to make before shipping.

 


 

Gallery Floats

 

Gallery Float: The Gallery Float is my personal favorite mounting process and is an excellent choice for any occasion or display. The Gallery Collection is a photo mounting process designed to enhance and protect any type of flat graphical display – art prints, photographs, posters, maps, awards, renderings, certificates, and documents. This high quality process provides a distinctive new look that is durable, glassless and offers a greater degree of protection from moisture and harmful UV rays than some traditional photo framing ideas.  The Gallery Float offers a high-end look in a quality product at reasonable prices. Plus a glass-free photo framing system providing a glare-free finish, and the UV protective layer in the durable protective laminate minimizes fading better than conventional glass. Images and colors appear clearer, sharper and brighter. As there is no glare, images seem to pop out at you at all angles of view. Prints are professionally photo mounted on high grade MDF with a carefully formulated cold-press adhesive and topped with a UV protective laminate. These Gallery Floats come ready to hang using the French Cleat method

 

 

 


 

Acrylic Mounts

 

Acrylic Mount: Acrylic Mount is truly the ultimate mounting option. This is the premier presentation system for bringing detail, color and tonal range to life in a way that traditional photo framing cannot. Printing is exclusively done on Fuji Flex polyester photographic material for amazing color and longevity (black and white images also look incredible on this material). It is then face mounted on optically clear high-end 1/4″ acrylic, the edges can be sanded to a smooth satin finish or hand polished for a crystal clear lookand it comes standard with a box cleat hanging system for stability, then added with a 1/8″ backer made of black Komatex PVC that is either flush mounted to the edges of the Acrylic or inset for a thinner profile. The Acrylic Mount will look great against most any wall type, but with the ultra glossy surface, hanging your acrylic  directly across from a bright window is not recommended.

 high-end acrylic mounts require special handling, because of that, manufacturing takes 3 to 4 weeks. Add 10 additional business days for hand polished edges. Despite the long manufacturing time you will not be disappointed in the unparalleled quality of the Acrylic Mount

 

 

 

 

 


Corporate and large scale multiple orders: I am more than happy to work with you on your project.  I can come to your location (within half an hour from Grand Junction area) and make recommendations as well as help install the artwork (installation is with a $100 fee).  If you are ordering multiple photos, I do have a discount.  Contact me for more details.

 


 

Custom orders/sizes: I do not do custom cropping of my photos. These photos represent the artistic vision that I placed when I was at the scene taking that photo, and cropping them differently or removing some elements effects the artistic vision that I wanted to convey. There is always reasons why I composed the image the way they are and why certain elements are present in the photo. I truly hope above all else that everyone enjoys my photography as I had envisioned it and that is why you have come to my website in the first place. I do have several stock photos available from Dreamstime, Shutterstock and Alamy that can be altered to a persons preference, I do from time to time update these sites.
