All artwork is signed, titled, dated, and editioned in archival ink on acid-free labels en mount verso. A database is maintained designating ownership and date of acquisition. Some titles may have larger editions.
Original images are printed using archival pigment on premium professional photographic papers: satin-luster for color photographs and 100% cold-pressed cotton rag for B&W. All components use archival materials currently available to the industry.
Photographs are cold-mounted to a smooth aluminum composite material boasting properties of rigidity, moisture-resistance, and pH-neutrality. Acrylic acid-free and pressure-sensitive adhesives are used.
Mounted photographs are either floated behind reflection-control UV Museum Glass or coated using a premium UV-inhibiting matte acrylic. Prints include white borders.
Frame designs are solid wood, custom-joined and hand-assembled in the U.S.A. Frame depths are 2″ (wall to front edge) and colors available are deep charcoal and white (shown at left). All artwork is built ready-to-hang with heavy-duty hardware.
Three size categories are available depending on artwork title. See chart below. Custom and larger sizing is available for panoramic work.

For artwork larger than 10 feet (120″), tiling is used whereby we print, mount, align and register individual pieces into a seamless whole. We custom fabricate rear stiffener panels with French-cleat hardware systems for easy, adjustable hanging. This process is conducive to contemporary presentations when framing materials become limited for large applications or when glass/acrylic is not feasible. Inquire for details.
Prices are tiered and increase as editions sell. Please call for current pricing and title availability.
Insured shipping is available globally for all artwork, including prints and framed pieces. Professional packing is used to ensure safe transit. The cost of shipping is passed entirely to the client. (Containers and materials may be stored for future artwork transport.)
Reinforced packaging, wooden crating, etc, are custom-built to accommodate larger artwork and palletized when appropriate. Tracking data will be provided and documentation for facilitated customs clearance can also be provided for international shipments.
Contemporary photographs require care and respect to promote longevity. Many variables can affect long-term print stability. Best practices encompass use of acid-free adhesives, quality substrates when mounting photographs, and display behind UV glazing protection such as glass or acrylic. Prints should always be displayed or stored in environments with stable temperatures.
It is the owner's responsibility to further research and maintain the proper long-term care and maintenance of fine art displayed in modern interior environments, including properly and securely hanging.
