A framed print will always draw ones eye to the space where it hangs – and the combination of print, mattes, frame and glass will give the image a sense of belonging.
The Print: All of our images are meant to last the life of their intended use and beyond. We only use archival-quality inks and papers which are designed to prevent fading for a minimum of 75 years on color images and over 200 years for black and white images. Combined with our archival inks we use Epson Fine Art papers with a variety of finishes that are also rated as archival quality photo paper and helps to maintain the light-fastness and vivid colors of our images.
Wood Frames: Our wood frames are made of solid wood or engineered BonanzaWood to create a substantial feel to your art and ensure they remain rigid for the life of your print. Frames come in a 3″ or 5″ face width based on the image size and subject. Each wood frame comes in a choice of solid black or a brown wood tone.
Metal Frames: Our metal frames are made in either a 3″ or 5 “face width in pure aluminum and come in either a shiny metal or brushed metal finish to complement the images within them.
The Mattes: We use a strong gatorboard backing to mount all of our images so that you and your company’s customers will never experience a wrinkled image as you will see with many posters or prints which are not mounted. We use Bainbridge mattes in two colors – black or white. Depending upon the size of your image we may utilize a matte or float the image in the frame to protect it from contact with glass.
To reduce the weight of an image when printing 40″ x 60″ prints and larger, we will face-mount the image in acrylic and mount the image in a frame which complements the image.
The Glass: The clear choice for glass is the UV-protecting Tru-Vue Glass which protects your image from fading over the life of the print.
Print sizes: We standardize our prints into 6 sizes so that you can create displays and know that you can get new images that will fit in existing ones’ spaces without disrupting the spacing of images.
