Print Information

Fine art prints are available in three state-of-the-art MEDIUMS:

Dye-Sublimation Metal Prints (most popular)

Sublimation onto metal is a new, cutting edge way to reproduce an image. Sublimation itself is the process of going from a solid, to a gas, and back to a solid - skipping the liquid state. The image is first printed onto a transfer paper and then is adhered to pretreated aluminum. The aluminum and transfer paper are placed into a custom heat press, which is heated to temperatures exceeding 380 degrees Fahrenheit. While being subjected to extreme heat and pressure, the dyes from the transfer paper turn into a gas, are pressed into the surface of the metal, and then solidify into the treated aluminum. As the dyes cool they are permanently infused beneath the surface of the metal substrate.

  • Archival: Aluminum prints will not fade or lose color.

  • Scratch Resistant: Dyes are infused beneath the exterior coating through sublimation. This makes it more durable than traditional paper and canvas imaging because it can’t be scratched or peeled off the surface.

  • Fire Retardant: Sublimated aluminum holds up against high heat. Necessary for certain corporate/public environments.

  • Easy to Clean: No need to worry about fingerprints or blemishes. Cleaning is as simple as a microfiber cloth and household cleaner. This makes these prints perfect for public spaces and other high traffic areas.

  • Light Weight: While extremely rigid and durable, the 90% recycled aluminum material used is light weight and easy to hang. Even the largest of pieces are incredibly light. A 40x60” panel weighs approximately 13lbs.

  • Metal prints feature modern, ready-to-hang float mounts. A .75” anodized aluminum inset 1” from the edge provides a ‘floating’ aesthetic - overall, your print will sit about 1" off of the wall.

* 40x60” acrylic mounts may be subject to additional shipping fees if shipped to Nantucket

Acrylic Mount Prints

Acrylic mounts are a very sophisticated, modern way to present a photograph. They feature an archival, glossy photographic print mounted between a 1/4" sheet of acrylic on the face, and a 1/4" sheet of white sintra board for the backing. These prints are incredibly easy to hang. An aluminum brace runs along the back, with a separate wooden cleat that screws into the wall. Once you have the wooden cleat leveled on the wall, the acrylic mount sits flush, directly on top of it. All acrylic mounts are created by a small time lab in New York City, they are professionally packaged and shipped in a crate.

Hahnemühle Photo Rag Prints

Hahnemühle Photo Rag prints are incredibly high in quality, rich in contrast and have a slight linen texture when viewed up close. The fine, smooth surface of this 100% cotton paper is famous for its impressive pictorial depth, and is the best of the best when it comes to creating archival fine art prints. My Hahnemühle Photo Rag prints are printed from a small time printer in New England, not a mass-producer. They are the best type of photographic paper print I have ever seen.

Hahnemühle prints are sold unframed, and include 2" borders. They arrive rolled and carefully packaged in a shipping tube, making it easy for you to get them framed locally. If you would like me to take care of framing for you, please contact me.
