Fine Art Mountain Prints
I am proud to offer beautiful photographic fine art prints of the highest quality. With high archival ratings that will last for many decades, these stunning, museum-quality prints showcase 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 offer several unique archival, ready-to-hang 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 eliminates reflections and is easy to clean. The glossy Metal prints are crowd pleasers and my all-around personal favorite, with their luscious depth of imagery. Last but certainly not least, my Lumachrome Trulife-glass mounted prints offer the absolute ultimate luxury fine art display quality.
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.

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 satin semi-gloss 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-gloss 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.
Upon request I can also produce the Duraplaqs with a matte laminate that has no reflections or even glare whatsoever, which would be a good option for a really bright room with enormous windows. Just keep in mind that the matte finish requires good direct lighting or else the image can look a bit flat or dull compared to the normal semi-gloss laminate.
Duraplaq mounted prints are easy to take care of; you can clean them with ammonia-free or alcohol-free glass cleaner and a soft rag.
* International orders for Duraplaq prints require a shipping fee; please contact me for an international shipping quote.
Lumachrome® Trulife® 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.
Lumachrome® fine art prints raise the bar for extraordinary image quality, with unsurpassed image sharpness and detail, a broad color gamut that accurately renders bright highlights as well as clear shadow detail, and a subtle metallic sheen which gives the colors a radiant luminosity. These qualities give the prints an extraordinary clarity, vividness, and the most lifelike appearance of any print method I've ever seen.
The print is mounted face-first onto a 1/8" museum-grade, uv-protected, scratch-resistant acrylic glass. I now use a special type of acrylic glass called Trulife® acrylic glass which cuts out unwanted reflections by about 50% or more compared to normal acrylic glass, allowing you to view the print imagery without distraction. The backside of the print is backed by a stiff, 1/4", black, acid-free substrate.
A robust inset floating frame and french-cleat hanging system is attached to the back, so that the print floats 1.25" off of the wall.
Although the Lumachrome/Trulife-glass mounted prints are significantly more expensive than my other mounting styles, they provide the absolute premier stunning image quality and elegant display style.
* International Acrylic-glass mounted print orders feature slightly different materials: a Fujiflex photo paper rather than the Lumachrome, and a different brand of acrylic glass. The print quality is still supreme and shipping is still free; but, if you would prefer the American-made Lumachrome version, please contact me for a shipping quote.
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 vivid colors with excellent clarity, high contrast, and an extraordinary depth of imagery. The metal prints are mounted on recessed 3/4"-deep float mount, so the print appears to float off of the wall with no hanging system visible.
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. With this innovative technique, dyes are applied onto a ChromaLuxe polyester coated sheet of aluminum then baked in a high pressure heat press. The dyes sublimate from a solid to a gaseous state and permeate into the surface where they solidify in the polyester coating. The image is thus suspended in the surface of the print rather than simply on top of it, giving the metal prints a remarkable 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!
Fine Art Prints for Framing
For those who prefer traditional framed prints, I offer high quality, fine art giclee prints featuring vivid, color-accurate ink pigments on heavyweight Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag fine art paper with a finely textured, satin surface. The prints have a white border around the image to allow easy matting and framing. With high archival ratings, these prints will last for many decades without fading.
For shipping, these prints are protected by sheets of acid-free paper and are rolled around the outside of a tube, which is then placed in a waterproof plastic bag and securely packaged inside an outer box.
Because these prints are not mounted or laminated, great care must be taken when handling them to avoid any damage due to fingerprints, moisture, or creasing. I recommend wearing rubber or linen gloves while handling the prints. Due to the difficulty of repackinging these prints properly, I recommend taking the unopened package directly to your local frame shop instead of opening them and trying to repackage them. Or, I can also ship them directly to your frame shop if you'd prefer.
If you are interested in purchasing a ready-to-hang print whether for yourself or as a gift, please consider one of the mounted options described above which are equally if not more impressive and usually more economical compared to the cost of framing.
* International loose print orders are made with Hahnemühle FineArt Baryta paper rather than the Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag paper. These two papers have very similar qualities, but the Hahnemühle has slightly more surface texture. Shipping is free.
Can't Decide Which Print Style to Order?
All my print display styles are impressive, elegant, and beautiful. They all have nearly-equally vivid image quality, clarity, and contrast. So the choice mainly involves your preferences of the surface glossiness and the mounting presentation on the wall.
The biggest difference in my print style options is the ultra-glossy versus satin semi-gloss surface. The ultra-glossy print options (Metal & Acrylic) are definitely crowd-pleasers and have (arguably) a bit more of an immediate "wow" factor due to the luscious, shiny surface which gives them a gem-like appeal. But the satin semi-gloss finish of the Duraplaqs showcases equally vivid image quality and contrast, with the added benefit of eliminating reflections.
The anti-reflective characteristic of the Duraplaq's satin 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.
If you are an art collector who prefers the absolute highest image quality available, the Lumachrome/Trulife Acrylic prints are the best of the best - truly a sight to behold.
Sometimes I am asked which display option is my personal favorite. If I had the budget for it I'd go for the Lumachrome/Trulife Acrylic prints without hesitation. But because of price concerns the decision usually narrows to the Duraplaq vs. Metal prints. For large prints in a bright sunlit room, I'd choose the Duraplaq option for sure. But otherwise it mainly comes down to personal preference between the ultra-glossy/shiny Metal print surface vs. the satin semi-gloss finish of the Duraplaqs. If I'm forced to choose, I guess I'd say the Metal print is probably my favorite by an inch, due to its luscious glossy finish and ultra-minimal presentation.
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 the image wrapped around the sides.
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.
Traditional Framed Prints
I do not offer traditional framed prints for sale because of the difficulties of shipping glass; plus, framing is inherently a custom display method -- at your local framing shop you can pick out any number of different mat colors and frame materials to match your decor.
If you would prefer a traditional print framed behind glass, I offer loose prints (as described above) printed on the beautiful Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag heavyweight fine art paper.
Custom Prints and Sizes
If you need a print size that is not listed for sale here, that's not a problem - please contact me to request a custom size.
To Place an Order:
First find the photo(s) you love the most from my gallery pages.
You can order prints directly from each photo's page (if that photo is for sale) by scrolling down beneath the photo to see the print options. Choose your desired framing/mounting option, add it to your shopping cart, then check out securely with a credit card or via PayPal.
Custom-size prints other than the sizes shown are available; please contact me for details.
Free Domestic Shipping
I offer free shipping on all print orders within the U.S.
The prints are packaged securely, shipped insured via FedEx, and guaranteed to arrive in perfect condition. In the rare event of a print damaged in shipping, please let me know immediately and a replacement will be sent asap.
Print orders are shipped within 3-4 weeks of purchase date. In the event that I am unable to ship your order within these timeframes, you will be notified of the expected ship date and offered a refund if you choose not to wait.
If you are in a hurry and need a print SOON, I can do a rush order for you to receive the print within about a week. Rush orders do incur an additional rush fee, usually around 50% extra. Please contact me first to ensure that I can get the print(s) to you in time, and to find out what the rush fee will be for the print(s) you want to order.
International Orders & Shipping
I offer free shipping for Metal, Acrylic, or Loose Print orders to 50 countries worldwide. Unfortunately I cannot offer free international shipping for the Duraplaq mounted prints.
International print orders are produced by a reputable print shop based in Germany. These prints are also of the highest professional fine art quality, but may have slight differences compared to my equivalent American-produced prints. Specifically:
- Acrylic-glass mounted prints use a Fujiflex photo paper rather than the Lumachrome, and a different brand of acrylic glass.
- Loose prints are made with Hahnemühle FineArt Baryta paper rather than the
Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag paper. These two papers have very similar qualities, but the Hahnemühle has slightly more surface texture.
My international prints also do not have my logo on the back like the American-produced ones do. Finally, due to customs issues, international orders may come with an invoice or receipt that lists the production cost.
If you are an international customer and would like to order a Duraplaq print or would prefer the American-produced print product version, please contact me for a shipping quote.
I am confident that you will be pleased with the quality of my prints. I offer a full refund (up to $10,000, and not including return postage) for any standard print* returned in new condition within 30 days of receipt. The refund will be processed once I receive the returned print. I will replace at no charge any print that has been damaged in transit, although that is highly unlikely.
* Please note that my guarantee does not apply to custom orders for items not listed for sale on my website, such as custom print sizes, triptychs, murals, or canvas prints. All sales for such custom items are final.
