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 professional photographic papers: premium luster for color photographs and 100% pressed cotton rag for black & white. 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 need to be treated with care and respect to promote longevity. Prints should never be displayed in poor conditions such as in direct sunlight or outdoors and in environments with extreme temperature fluctuation.
To prevent degradation, prints should be mounted using acid-free adhesives and displayed behind either glass, acrylic, or a protective glazing barrier with UV inhibiting properties at minimum. It is the owner's responsibility to further research and educate oneself of the proper long-term care and maintenance of fine art displayed in modern interior environments, e.g. residential and private or commercial and public, including properly and safely hanging and securing Museum Glass.
