FAQMEDIUMS – paper vs. canvas
Fine Art Paper, Epson Premium Satin – Premium quality – Vibrant highlights, strong contrasts, and 100-year colorfastness, the Kodak Pro Endura paper has won over professional photographers and is considered to be Kodak’s leading photo paper. The combination of modern exposure technology and traditional development ensures high quality, authentic gallery prints. It is extremely colorfast and is recognized as the brand’s leading paper. It distinguishes itself through brilliant highlights, strong color contrasts, and a remarkable durability of 100 years. Therefore, it is ideal for shots that benefit from strong contrasts, such as portraits or architectural photography.
UV Fine Art Canvas Print is simple and distinctive. The Matte surface, so characteristic of this material, has a natural, idyllic and cozy appearance. It also breathes new life into your images! Color shots dazzle for decades. The paper is made from 100% cotton and its woven texture if clearly visible in the matte surface. This creates a tactile and vibrant effect.
With canvas, there are also two options. The first option is to purchase the canvas print unframed. Once the piece of art is printed on the canvas, it is rolled up and placed into a tube and then sent to you. However, it is not ready for hanging. You will need to find a frame shop that will do this for you. The second option is to purchase the canvas print as “gallery wrap.” This option provides printing as well as stretching the canvas around stretcher bars and finishing it off by making it ready to hang. The second option of “gallery wrap” is the option that most individuals purchase.
I have also found that some prints present themselves best in one type media over the other. In these cases, I will make this recommendation for the best presentation medium for a particular print. It is not a hard and fast recommendation but one that I have experienced before.Original versus Limited Edition Prints There is only one printed image with an original. All sizes, other than the original of a particular image, are considered to be Limited Editions of up to thirty (30). Some of the prints in this store are standard size prints. Dimensions for standard size are 11″x14″, 16″x20″, and 18″x24″. A standard size print will allow you to purchase a ready-made frame. Ready-made frames can be found in most art supply or craft stores. Custom prints sizes are all other sizes and require the print to be taken to a custom framing store.

Certificate of Authenticity (COA) is a document that includes details about the work of art you have purchased. It comes with original or limited edition prints of the particular artwork. The COA includes the title of the artwork; the size of the print; whether it is an original or limited edition and if it is a limited edition, what is the print number of the edition; who created the piece of artwork and my signature on the COA.
