Print Types - High Gloss, Fine Art Baryta, Canvas, Acrylic, Metal
Archival Glossy/Baryta Prints -- these are traditional fine art prints on archival high gloss paper, with the option to upgrade to fine art Baryta paper for an additional 10%. The high gloss is the most likely to mimic the colours you see on your computer screen (though be aware that no image will look exactly like it does on a computer), while the Fine Art Baryta is a textured paper that will be slightly more muted colour-wise and will have less glare off of it (note that photographs should be viewed on a colour-calibrated screen or device to see the correct colour palette in each photograph).
Canvas Prints -- traditional thick gallery wrap archival canvas prints that are stretched and laminated over a 1.5" stretcher bar (a wooden frame behind the print that is not visible) and are ready to hang right away without framing (though they can also be framed). Wrap options include mirror wrap, white wrap or black wrap (the wrap is the 1.5" portion of the canvas that you see from the side).
Acrylic Prints -- along with metal prints, acrylic are the most modern of the print options. I've had acrylics displayed in dental offices, professional buildings, and in homes throughout North America. These prints are printed on high gloss archival print paper (with an option to upgrade to metallic paper for an additional 10%), then are mounted to a 1/8" acrylic sheet, creating a vibrant, glossy look that is tough to beat. These prints come with black backing and a float frame mounted behind the print, so that they are ready to hang right away. Like the metal prints, acrylic prints appear to float off of the wall, creating a gorgeous, modern, stylish look.
Metal Prints -- like acrylic prints, metal prints are modern, sleek, and beautiful. The images are printed on High Definition metal panels and have a float frame mounted behind the thin print, giving the prints the appearance of floating off of the wall. Visitors to Canmore, Alberta can view samples of my metal prints at The Tavern 1884 restaurant and lounge.
Sample Customer Feedback
"The picture is more beautiful than I imagined! We went to get it framed and the people in the store couldn't stop staring at it. They thought it was great. Thanks again!
"I picked up my framed photos today, and they turned out awesome. They turned out so nicely, the owner of the framing shop wanted to know your web address so he could look up your work. Thanks again, I look forward to doing business with you in the future!"
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What type of prints are they and what quality can I expect?
The fine art archival photographic display prints are produced from digital files and output on true photographic archival High Gloss paper (which is a type of glossy fine art paper) using the latest in lightjet printer technology at one of Canada's premier photo printing labs. By using this current digital technology, we are able to achieve superior sharpness and quality in the prints. For those looking for an even higher-end finish, we also offer paper upgrades to fine art baryta, which is a thicker, more expensive-feeling paper (please inquire for pricing, which is normally a 10% add-on).
2. What if I don't like the prints, can I get a refund?
There is a 30-day, no-questions-asked refund policy provided for all print-only orders (traditional high gloss or baryta prints) that are returned. There is a 65% refund on all canvas, metal, and acrylic prints that are returned. If your prints are damaged in any way, we also provide replacement prints at no charge to you once the original damaged print has been returned.
4. What do you recommend for matting and framing?
We recommend you choose an acid-free matting material for all prints. Acid-free mattes are readily available in framing shops worldwide. Use either normal framing glass or anti-reflective glass depending on your tastes: normal provides a more vibrant colourful picture but does not reduce window glare, whereas anti-reflective provides a more muted subtle picture and eliminates window glare completely. I personally opt for normal glass in my own framing.
5. Are the prints signed?
Yes, all of the prints we sell are digitally signed on the front of each print using a digital scan of John's original signature.
