99% of my print customers purchase their prints online through this website. Ordering online is safe and secure, shipping is free, and quality is guaranteed!

I am proud to offer beautiful photographic prints of the highest quality. These stunning, museum-quality prints have a vibrant range of colors and an incredible amount of detail - far greater than what you see in the web sized images on the website.

I also offer several unique archival display options, which are clean and modern-looking alternatives to traditional framing. Duraplaq mounting is my most popular display option - an affordable, glass-free, wood-mounted and UV laminated style which greatly reduces glare and is easy to clean. Another option is my Acrylic-glass mounting, which offers the ultimate in image clarity and vibrancy. My glossy Metal prints have a similar glossy vibrancy and a special depth of imagery.

I guarantee the high quality of all of my prints.  The prints are packaged securely and will arrive within 3-4 weeks or sooner, with free shipping in the US and Canada, and free international shipping for print-only, Acrylic-glass-mounted prints, and Metal prints.

Fine Art Lightjet Prints

As of June 2017, my print-only orders are printed on Fuji Crystal Archive luster paper. Often referred to as digital C-prints, or chromogenic prints, these prints are made with a Lightjet printer which uses ultra thin laser beams that expose the photographic paper with incredibly precise detail, color accuracy, and true continuous tone color. I always strive to create the highest-quality prints possible, and these photographic prints are truly impressive with a vibrancy that makes the images look alive.

My paper of choice has a luster finish with a slightly stippled surface texture that is shinier than a matte surface, but without the distracting reflections of a glossy print. In short, it could be described as a "semi-glossy" surface. Glossy or semi-matte prints are availably by request - the pricing is the same.

With a 60-70 year archival rating, these prints will last for many decades without fading.

Print-only print orders are intended to be framed behind glass by your local framer. I highly recommend having them framed as soon as possible in order to prevent damage from moisture or creasing. The prints should be dry-mounted to gator board or some kind of acid-free illustration board which will keep them perfectly flat in the frame and will prevent sagging and warping over time. Then the print will be ready for matting and framing in the style you desire. Your local framer will be able to take care this for you.

If you are purchasing a print as a gift, or if you'd rather not deal with the hassle and cost of framing, I would recommend to consider one of my ready-to-hang mounted print options instead.

DuraPlaq Mounted Prints

I am pleased to offer my prints with the professional print mounting known as "DuraPlaq" or "ColorBox" mounting - my most popular mounting option.  The print is professionally mounted on a sturdy 3/8" high density, eco-friendly, smooth HDF wood substrate which is coated on both sides with an acid-free and moisture resistant barrier to prevent warping or discoloration. The print surface is sealed with a special fine-art-grade semi-matte laminate, which eliminates unwanted reflections while maintaining excellent image clarity and contrast, and makes it UV, water, and fingerprint resistant.

The mount is finished with a beveled 1"-thick black edge, resulting in an elegant, modern, and durable print display that hangs flush against the wall using an easy-to-hang french cleat system.

A big advantage of this mounting style is that the laminate has a semi-matte finish which eliminates reflections, enabling easy viewing of large prints, even in bright rooms with harsh lighting - a situation in which prints are almost impossible to see clearly with normal glass frames because of the reflections. Indeed, the Duraplaq mounted prints seem to soak up light and glow with color.

Duraplaq mounted prints are easy to take care of; you can clean them with glass cleaner (like Windex) and a soft rag.

Acrylic-Glass Mounted Prints

Imagine a traditional glass-framed fine art print hanging on the wall - but without the matte and without the frame, just the glass with the print behind it! This is what the Acrylic- glass mounting looks like.

With this innovative display method, also known as PlexiGlass or Diasec mounting, a glossy metallic print is professionally mounted face-first onto 3/16" art- grade, UV protected, scratch- resistant acrylic plexiglass, and backed by 1/8" black acid-free board. A recessed french-cleat hanging system is attached to the back, so that the print floats 1/2" off of the wall, appearing like a glass framed print is floating on the wall without the matte and frame. The edges of the acrylic are clear frosted and beveled for a finishing touch.

These glossy Acrylic-glass mounted prints raise the bar for extraordinary image quality, with a vibrant clarity of colors, deeper darker black tones and a luscious depth of contrast. The clarity is similar to traditional glass framing, if not better, since the print is pressed directly onto the glass with no space and no reflections in between.

Although the Acrylic-glass mounted prints are more expensive than my other mounting styles, they provide the ultimate in stunning image quality and elegant display style.

Glossy Metal Prints

Metal prints are another unique and attractive display option that I offer. The photo is infused onto a thin, rigid aluminum sheet with a glossy finish that provides deep, bold colors with excellent clarity and high contrast. New in 2017, my metal prints are now mounted on an edge-to-edge 3/4" deep black metal frame mount. The frame looks great and makes the prints even easier to hang.

Unlike all my other display options which involve a mounted fine art ink print, the metal prints involve an entirely different dye sublimation printing technique. The image is infused into a polyester coated sheet of aluminum in a high pressure heat press. The dyes sublimate from a solid to a gas, and transfer to the metal print, where they solidify in the polyester coating. The way light shines through the surface coating and through the image itself gives the metal prints a unique sense of depth.

With that sense of depth and deep dark blacks and vibrant colors, the glossy metal prints are very eye-catching, impressive prints - so lusciously glossy that they almost seem to be dripping wet!

* Please note that due to the manufacturing process there may be very tiny imperfections in the metal print surface, but these are barely noticeable and don't detract from the dazzling appearance. I cannot accept returns due to these tiny but normal imperfections.

Canvas Prints

Despite their popularity, I don't offer canvas prints through my website because frankly they just can't compete with the image quality and elegant display presentation of my other display options. That said, I do realize that some people prefer the look and texture of canvas wraps, so I offer them by special request. The canvas prints I provide are the highest quality canvas prints money can buy. The canvas is actually mounted on a backing board which keeps the surface stiff and flat, preventing the sagging that can happen in cheaper canvas prints over time. By default the canvas prints are produced with solid black side edges, but the image can alternatively be "wrapped" or "mirrored" around the edges if you prefer.

The pricing for canvas prints is exactly the same as my Duraplaq print options, so if you would like to order a Canvas print, please check out and purchase the Duraplaq option in the print size you'd prefer, then immediately contact me to let me know that you want a Canvas print instead.

Can't Decide Which Mounting Option to Order?

The biggest difference in my mounting options is the glossy versus semi-matte surface. If you like shiny, glossy prints, you should choose either the Metal or Acrylic-glass prints. If you like the softer, slightly more natural look of a semi-matte finish, go for the Duraplaq mount.

Keep in mind that ALL my print display options look their best under good direct lighting, such as halogen or LED track lights pointed directly on the prints. But, perfect gallery lighting conditions aren't always an option, so your expected lighting conditions are another factor to consider. The anti-reflective characteristic of the Duraplaq surface laminate enables you to see the entire image scene without distracting reflections, which makes the Duraplaqs a great choice for big prints hanging in rooms with large, bright windows - a situation where reflections can potentially be problematic with glossy prints. On the other hand, if the print may be hung in a fairly dim room without direct lighting, the Metal prints will look the best, displaying the most image contrast and depth regardless of lighting conditions.

The size of the print can also be a factor. For the reasons just stated, Duraplaqs are a good choice for giant print sizes since you can see the entire scene without any distracting reflections. The Duraplaqs are also the most economic way to display a huge beautiful print - significantly less expensive per square inch than traditional framing or my other display options. The Metal and Acrylic-glass prints will also look stunning in large sizes, as long as they aren't hung right near a bright window. For smaller print sizes I personally think the Metal or Acrylic-glass prints are more appealing, but the Duraplaqs certainly still look good too.

The glossy Metal or Acrylic-glass prints might be considered perhaps the most immediately impressive and "sexiest" styles I offer. The Metal prints have a luscious finish that is so glossy it almost looks dripping wet. The image is actually fused into the surface, so there's a sense of depth to the image that is quite special to behold. The Acrylic-glass mounts have a glass-like glossy surface, much like a traditional glass-framed print but with a more modern, minimal display style. Because the Acrylic-glass prints are made with a real fine art paper print they have the highest level of color accuracy, similar to the Duraplaq prints but glossy. For these reasons the Acrylic-glass mounts are an excellent choice for those who prefer glossy prints but require museum-quality perfection.

Sometimes I am asked which display option is my personal favorite. It is very difficult to answer, since I think they all look great. For large prints in a bright room, I recommend the Duraplaq mounting, no doubt. If I had an unlimited budget and a perfectly-lit museum/gallery setting I'd go for the Acrylic-glass mounted prints. For most other display situations my personal favorite by a slight margin would be the Metal prints; I just love the unique depth of image they provide.

Quality Guarantee

I am confident that you will be pleased with the quality of my prints.

If you purchase one of my fine-art prints without a mounting option, I highly recommend that you make a trip to your local custom framer, not only because the prints look especially stunning when matted and framed behind glass, but because the prints need to be protected from the elements to ensure a long lifespan. Refunds will not be given for prints damaged due to neglectful storage. The prints should always be stored or displayed in a dry room out of direct sunshine.
