Fine Art Prints & Pricing
While digital technology makes it easy to share images these days, nothing compares with the joy of viewing an exhibition quality photograph on the wall of your own home or work place each day. Photographs on this site are available directly from Dorene Sykes - as archival pigment prints, canvas wraps, and metal prints.
Pigment Prints (matted)
Printing: Using a high-end Epson inkjet photo printer, pigment ink is sprayed onto Epson Fine Art Paper - 100% cotton matte or premium luster - ensuring high quality prints with fine detail, color fidelity, and remarkable longevity. Unlike less costly dye ink used in most printers (and by many photographers), pigment ink prevents colors from fading or being damaged by water.
Matting: A single mat is custom cut to enhance each image, with a narrow border left on the paper between the image and mat to enhance artistry. The mat and print are expertly fastened to thick foam mounting board to prevent warping. Only more costly acid-free materials are used throughout - mats, mounts and adhesives - ensuring that the work of art will not yellow.
Finishing: After Dorene Sykes signs the matted print, it is sealed in a cellophane clear bag for safe storage and transport. When properly cared for, these archival matted pigment prints will last 100 to 200 years or more.
Pigment Print pricing: based on mat size, with the longest side of the printed image given in parentheses:
11x14 mat (9-10" image) - $75.
16x20 mat (14-15" image) - $125.
18x24 mat (17-18" image) - $150.
Larger image sizes are available by quote. These will be printed on a large-format Epson inkjet printer by a trusted Master Printmaker.
Offering a contemporary, painterly look, Epson pigment ink is sprayed onto canvas fabric using a large-format Epson pigment inkjet printer. The canvas is wrapped around a 1.5" deep wooden frame and comes complete with dust cover and hardware, ready to hang. (While not required, you may optionally have it framed for a more traditional look.) We have partnered with a Master Printmaker to create archival Canvas Wraps. A variety of wall display sizes up to 30x45 are available by quote.
The newest art medium, archival Metal Prints offer a magical, vibrant luminescence. Images are infused with dyes onto coated aluminum. A mount is attached on back, enabling the metal print to float 1/2" from the wall. Available in brilliant high gloss for maximum detail and impact, and also in smooth satin for softer images with less reflection. We have partnered with a premier photographic lab to offer ready-to-hang, archival metal prints, available by quote in wall display sizes up to 30x45.
Regardless which medium you choose, all purchases come with a satisfaction guarantee. Our commitment to high quality ensures that photographic art by Dorene Sykes will be enjoyed for many years to come. Contact Dorene for more information.
