Editions are limited to 50 prints and 4 artist's proofs, and are comprised of (35) 13x13 prints and (15) 36x36 prints.
A 48x48 Museum Print may be substituted for one of the 36x36 prints in the edition. Please note, however, that only (3) 48x 48 Museum Prints will be allowed for any image. Museum Prints are only available face-mounted to UV protected, anti-reflective plexiglas and floated in a box frame.
13” prints are mounted on a 22”x26” 4-ply archival mat with a 4-ply archival window mat, and are available either matted or matted & framed.
36” prints are available either mounted on a 48”x48” 4-ply archival mat with a 4-ply archival window mat, or face-mounted to UV protected, anti-reflective plexiglas and floated in a box frame.
Panoramic prints are available in just one size, 36" x 89", though, if necessary, other sizes may be special ordered for the same price. Twenty-five prints plus three artist’s proofs comprise the edition.
Notes on framing:
Though prints may be mounted, matted and framed in any style including a traditional manner (i.e. print mounted on a larger, archival 4-ply matboard with a 4-ply window mat), our personal preference for large prints is to "face-mount" them.
The face-mount process is similar to the Diasec process that was developed in Germany whereby the print is bonded to a special, premium-quality brand of UV protected, anti-reflective plexiglas, (note: before mounting, the edges of the plexiglas are polished for a finer finish) The print is bonded using an optically-clear sheet of adhesive.
The process requires passing the print and plexi through a special machine with heated rollers, multiple times, with rest periods. The result is an amazing immediacy as, unlike traditional framing, the print sits just 1/8" from the front surface.
Next, a piece of 6mm thick black sintra (a type of rigid plastic) is bonded to the back of the print. At this point, the print is hermetically sealed, and protected between these two sheets of plastic. A wood frame is then bonded to the sintra.
Then, a decorative outer wooden frame is custom-milled by our framer from rock maple, to which he applies 3 coats of a proprietary color of lacquer. Though the frames may look black, they are not. We worked with our framer to develop a special “off-black” hue that would not contrast too starkly with the image.
Finally, with screws passing through the back side of the decorative frame and into the wooden frame bonded to the sintra, the print is made to "float" within the decorative frame with a small gap between the edge of the print and the frame.
A French Cleat system is used to hang the print on the wall so that the frame sits flush against the wall.
