Fine Art Photographs

Art Media Options and 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. They also make wonderful gifts, whether you choose the artwork yourself or order a custom gift certificate. Photographs are available directly from Dorene Sykes in Falmouth, Massachusetts USA. Art media options - archival pigment prints, canvas wraps, and metal prints - are described below.

 

Pigment Prints

Printing: On a professional 10-cartridge Epson inkjet printer, pigment ink is sprayed onto fine art paper, ensuring high quality prints with fine detail, color fidelity, and remarkable longevity. This is the same technology used to produce photographic art for museums and giclée prints of paintings. Unlike less costly dye ink consumer inkjets used by many photographers, pigment ink prevents colors from fading or being damaged by water. Dorene selects the fine art paper that will best complement each image. Her favorite papers - all acid-free 100% cotton rag - are Epson Hot Press Bright (smooth), Cold Press Bright (textured), and Legacy Platine - a semi-gloss surface with especially rich blacks harkening back to film days. 

Matting and Finishing: A single mat is custom cut to enhance each image, typically with a narrow border left on the paper surrounding the image to enhance artistry. The mat and print are expertly fastened to foam mounting board to prevent warping. After Dorene signs the matted print, it is sealed in a cellophane clear bag for safe storage, transport and gifting. Only more costly acid-free paper and materials are used to ensure that each work of art will not yellow over time. If properly cared for, the artwork will look like new for well over 100 years.

Pigment Print pricing is based on mat size, with the longest side of the printed image given in parentheses. These mats fit standard 0ff-the-shelf frames, or you can contract with a professional framer.
       11x14 mat (up to 9-10" image) - $80. 
       16x20 mat (14-15" image) - $120. 
       18x24 mat (17-18" image) - $150. 

Un-matted print images longer than 18" are available by quote.

 

Canvas Wraps

Offering a contemporary, painterly look, archival pigment ink is sprayed onto premium, thick canvas fabric. The canvas is wrapped around a 1.5" deep hardwood frame and comes complete with dust cover and hardware, ready to hang. Unlike consumer labs that use cheaper non-archival ink, thinner canvas fabric, and often inner frames made of cardboard (read: canvases with poor color and clarity that fade and sag in humidity), we partner with a premier photographic lab that offers high quality, archival Canvas Wraps. This means that our clients are guaranteed to receive canvas wraps with clarity and depth of color that will last for generations.

Metal Prints

The newest art medium, Metal Prints offer a magical, vibrant luminescence. We partner with a premier photographic lab to offer high quality, archival metal prints with a brilliant gloss or semi-gloss surface for maximum detail and impact, or with a matte finish for softer images. The ultra-hard, scratch-resistant aluminum surface is waterproof and can be easily cleaned with a microfiber cloth and ammonia-free window cleaner, such as Sprayway Glass Cleaner. Each metal print comes complete with an inset frame (displaying it 3/4" inch out from the wall) and wire, ready to hang.
