Fine Art Prints
Not quite sure what print type to choose? This page will walk you through the different options and explain the entire printing process. As always, please contact me directly if you have specific questions or would like to discuss further.
My prints have been purchased by satisfied customers - including both private and institutional - across the United States and in Europe as well. Check out my print collector testimonials here.
Prints are a physical representation of something I put my heart into; thus, a lot of work that has been done to ensure the print options showcase my work in the best manner possible. I only use the highest quality materials and production options available, which result in beautifully elegant artwork.
Photography was never meant to be viewed on a 4" screen
Mountain landscapes are meant to be viewed BIG. Every aspect in the image will appear that much bigger, and you’re better able to appreciate the detail in an image when viewed larger. The impact that a large, statement piece brings to a room is unmatched! I specialize in large format printing as the majority of the images on my site are several images stitched together, which allows you to print extremely big with incredible detail. For that reason, most client orders are sizeable (>5 ft.). If you have the wall space, bigger is better!
LUXURY METAL FLOAT PRINTS (Arrives Ready to Hang)
My most popular print option! High gloss metal prints provide eye catching color and saturation, are sleek and lightweight, and are a great product for dramatic scenes that shine with color. Their pop gives the print a 3D-like appearance. They are printed on partially recycled aluminum and can be easily cleaned. They are incredibly durable, waterproof and scratch resistant as well. Like my other printing options, metal prints come with a float mount, creating a beautiful drop shadow effect. You can purchase a frame if you'd like but it comes ready to hang and most will hang as is.
Unlike my other printing options which are paper mounted to either wood or museum-grade acrylic, these prints are created via dye sublimation, an innovative process in which the image is printed to a transfer paper, then infused onto a ChromaLuxe aluminum panel via a combination of pressure and heat. A high gloss infused print brings your image to life, due to its impressive pop and saturation. Note, increased pop and gloss can lead to a slight glare when viewed under strong light, but these are tradeoffs you often encounter with this style of printing. A reduced glare/semi-gloss finish is available by request.
The combination of eye catching colors and surface durability make this unique printing process one of the most popular on the market.
WOOD MOUNTED FINE ART PRINTS (ARRIVES READY TO HANG)
This print option features a fine art paper print mounted on a wood layer. The final product gives a clean and crisp look with incredible detail and contrast.
A benefit of this option is there is reduced glare and reflection, which even some of the highest end print types can exhibit. Think of wood prints as more matte-like compared to the glossier metal and acrylic finishes. There is also UV protection as well as protection against fingerprints and dust. Additionally, the artwork is quite durable and can even be cleaned with a soft damp cloth.
The artwork is mounted on an acid-free 3/8” thick surface, finished with a black beveled edge, and given a 3/4” deep backing to create a floating effect. This creates a beautiful drop shadow and reveals a 3D like feel as it sits off the wall, and is one of my favorite attributes. A simple French cleat system is provided to securely mount and display the wood print. The product comes ready to hang and no additional frame is required.
MUSEUM-GRADE ACRYLIC FINE ART PRINTS (Arrives ready to hang)
My highest end print product. Perfect for those looking to invest in museum quality fine art. This option features a fine art metallic paper print face mounted on high grade acrylic.
Museum-grade acrylic prints bring extra detail, depth and iridescence for an impressive modern presentation. They are exceptionally clear while being durable and scratch resistant, a feature not all acrylics have. They also feature UV light protection.
A protective, acid-free black coating is applied to the back of the acrylic face-mounted print and completed with a black 1/2” backing with a concealed French cleat hanger to give it a beautiful floating effect when mounted on the wall. Overall depth of product is 13/16” from front face to wall. Like the other print options, the 3D like 'float' effect is one of my favorite features and is a favorite among customers.
Overall, acrylic prints are a resoundingly unique way to present work with superior clarity and durability.
FINE ART PAPER PRINTS (Arrives as a loose print)
Your final option, a loose print on Lustre Fine Art Paper is a valued all-rounder for high quality Fine Art injet printing. These striking prints result in a perfect reproduction of detail and an array of vibrant colors. The prints feature an elegant sheen with rich blacks and a gloss finish. These are loose prints so you would need to mat and frame it (as opposed to the other options which arrive ready to hang). This gives you the benefit of working with your local frame shop to customize the print to your liking. Given these prints are not mounted, proper care is necessary to avoid any damage to the print. Framing can be costly, which is a benefit to choosing one of the three above print types, which arrive ready to hang (no frame required).
HANGING YOUR ARTWORK
Metal, wood and acrylic prints all come ready to hang. Thus, you do not have to spend extra money to purchase a frame for these fine art prints. You can certainly frame your art if you'd like, but most simply hang the artwork as it arrives. Each option features a hidden hanging system as your print will float ¾” off the wall, revealing a 3D-like appearance and beautiful drop shadow effect. Float hanging systems are very popular within the industry.
Prints come with all the necessary hanging hardware, including a metal bar/cleat and screws. Simply affix the metal bar to the wall and then the print will simply sit on the bar (there is a lip on the back of the print that will grab the bar) and you're good to go. It's that easy! As one client said, "This is a nice setup - very easy to hang. Wish everyone would use this hanging method!"
My love for mountaineering is at the core of my photography. Each image has a captivating story behind it, and the adventure behind the image is often just as meaningful as the image itself. All artwork sized 18" x 30" and greater will have the story about the image mounted to the back of the artwork.
STILL NOT SURE WHICH PRINT STYLE TO CHOOSE?
I know it can be a tough decision! Rest assured, I would not offer a print type that I wouldn't feel comfortable hanging on my own wall. The detail, clarity and contrast catch your attention regardless of the print type. Metal and museum-grade acrylic prints have more of a wow factor and 'pop' a bit more compared to the wood mounted prints due to their high gloss and shiny surfaces. On the other hand, the wood prints are not as glossy and therefore eliminate reflections better than the other options. Customers love the beveled edges on the wood prints, but the sleek, thin profile and vibrant colors of the metal prints also catch eyes. The museum-grade acrylics are meant for those looking to invest in museum quality fine art. The best of the best.
It is also important to consider the lighting environment where your artwork will be displayed. Wood prints or metal with a semi gloss finish may be more appropriate in a bright room with large windows due to their reduction in glare. Like other things in life, it comes down to tradeoffs! Lastly, make sure to never place your art on a wall that receives direct sunlight. Even with the UV protection, sunlight contains infrared radiation which can damage and fade your print over time.
