on Canvas - Sizes & Pricing
My prints-on-canvas are individually-produced, high-resolution "giclées" made in my own studio on a sophisticated wide format inkjet printer, using highly archival pigments. The Giclée process, pronounced "Gee-Clay" derived from the French for "Squirt", was developed as a digital alternative to lithographic reproduction. It far surpasses the resolution of traditional lithographs and is now the world's preferred standard for fine art print reproductions.
I use canvas of the highest quality to produce my prints, resulting in brilliant velvety colors, exceptional contrast, razor-sharp detail, and stunning presence and three-dimensionality. I apply a finish of glossy/satin varnish for a beautiful sheen, as well as anti-UV and humidity protection. The results are amazing and need to be seen to be truly appreciated. My canvas prints are often mistaken for oil painting originals.
The prints are very low maintenance. Thanks to the varnish coating, they can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth or sponge and they'll keep their brilliant color for decades.
You can buy my prints unstretched or mounted. An unstretched canvas is easy to ship and can be easily mounted by any frame shop.
In the case of mounted prints, I stretch the canvas myself on high quality 3/4" or 1-1/2" custom stretcher frames. The edge of the canvas print has a unique artistic appearance as the image continues to fold around the sides to the back in a so-called "gallery wrap". There is no need for frames or glass. The prints are ready to hang up on a wall just as they are. If you prefer a frame, I suggest using a so-called "canvas floater frame" to provide some space (about 0.5") between the canvas and the frame.
Although you can buy my books with a secure
shopping cart on PhotoTripUSA,
fine art prints are not a commodity that you buy from the shelf and I'd
like to offer you the opportunity to talk to me personally about your
print before making a purchase; if so, please feel free to e-mail
otherwise please download and fax or mail this ORDER FORM.
