Types of Prints & Wall Art Available

Paper Print Options

We offer a number of different paper types, sizes, and framing options. Prints can be purchased by clicking on the “Buy” or the shopping cart icon above any of the photos. Prices vary by size and printing surface. With the exception of the MetalPrints and Wrapped Canvas, all prints will need to be matted and framed after purchase.

Lustre

Lustre is the paper type we recommended most when people ask which paper to print on. Lustre has the color saturation of glossy paper but with the fingerprint resistance of matte. Lustre also does not have the glare that is associated with glossy paper. Lustre is a professional-grade paper, printed on Kodak Professional Endura paper and is materially ‘thicker,’ or heavier, than consumer paper.

Metallic

With a glossy finish and unique metallic appearance, these prints have extra visual interest and depth. They are printed on long-lasting Kodak Professional Endura Metallic paper.  It produces vivid, three-dimensional, lasting images with extreme sharpness, brightness, and color saturation. Metallic paper works really well for black and white photos or any photos that contain water, rock.

Giclée Watercolor

Giclée Prints (pronounced “zee”-“clay”) are made with high-quality archival inks on fine art papers using a high-resolution large format inkjet printer. The premium inks produce images with smooth tones and rich colors, making these prints ideal for extraordinary presentations. Prints are printed on a heavy, 310g paper with a subtle texture. This acid-free paper is 100% cotton fiber and is finished with a water-based protective spray. Due to the stunning colors and matte finish, your print will take on the look of a masterpiece painting.

Glossy

Glossy is a shiny finish and prints appear brighter than Matte. Printed in Kodak paper

Wall Art Options

Gorgeous products ready to hang

Metal

Uniquely durable print with vibrant colors, brilliant luminescent images, and exceptional detail.

MetalPrints™ represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, your images will take on an almost magical luminescence. The ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface is waterproof/weatherproof and can be cleaned easily – just avoid direct sunlight.  The beauty of MetalPrints is that they do not need to be framed; they are ready to hang on your wall as soon as you receive the print! Choice of finishes includes High Gloss, Mid Gloss and Satin

Acrylic Metal

A sleek and modern mounting option for a stunning metal print. The 1/4″ acrylic face enhances and protects the underlying print and is mounted with four stainless steel posts. Choice of finishes includes High Gloss, Mid Gloss and Satin

Traditional Canvas

Printed on heavy duty PremierArt Water Resistant Canvas, then finished with a dry lamination process that is UV and water resistant. The canvas is stretched and then wrapped over a 1 3/8″ thick wooden frame. Your photo extends to cover the sides of the frame for a beautiful presentation. Wrapped Canvas prints are ready to hang on your wall.

Stretched Canvas

Printed on heavy duty PremierArt Water Resistant Canvas, then finished with a dry lamination process that is UV and water resistant. The canvas is stretched around a wooden frame and stapled  on the edges leaving the full image visible on the front.

Flat Mounted Canvas

The canvas is mounted onto rigid Gator foamboard, which is very rigid and lightweight backing. It is durable and will not warp.

ThinWraps

First we make a print on your choice of Lustre Paper, Metallic Paper or Fine Art Canvas material. We then over-laminate the image with a soft Satin Laminate. The resulting product is then wrapped on 3/16″Gatorboard. For a striking effect, a spacer is applied (Float Mounting Block) to the back of the ThinWrap, which allows the image to be hung and appears to float from the wall.

Wood Prints

Maple Wood Prints are printed directly on to 1/2″ thick maple surfaced wood board, for a warm and natural-looking print that is also eco-friendly. The grain and other characteristics of the wood shows through the light and white areas of the image for a natural warm tone and vintage feel. Each wood print is unique and no two prints will look precisely alike.
