About Orders:

Custom Orders and Deluxe Prints

We can create custom sizes on our standard 24" printer. The 24" is the limitation of the short side of an image, so a very long, narrow image can be printed with the narrow side at 24". Deluxe prints may be created on canvas and such orders are priced separately as special orders. Inquire for prices based upon the print and shipping destination. Prints on canvas are created by request and are shipped rolled in a tube, not on stretchers.

If you see an image on our web sites that is not offered as a print in this Store, contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your request. There is an additional charge ($50.00) to produce a print not currently in our web store inventory list.

Payments

The preferred method of payment is via PayPal which will allow you to pay with a credit card as the source of the money. Contact us for other arrangements. Payments made by personal check (USD only) need to allow for the checks to clear the bank. Bank Checks (also known as cashier's checks) are processed upon receipt. We also accept Federal Funds Wire transfer.

Shipping & Returns

Prints are adequately packed to withstand handling by the shipper. If your print arrives damaged, return the damaged item for replacement at no further cost. Upon request, insurance is available for an added fee. Insurance for overseas destinations for certain items may need to be estimated beforehand. Contact us to inquire.

About Prints and Original Art:

Limited Editions

These reproductions are manufactured on a printing press. Usually a four color process where each color is added one at a time. Under magnification a moire pattern of dots can be seen.

Giclées

Ink is sprayed or "jetted" onto paper from nozzles that apply the color in a continuous tone. As many as eight or more ink cartridges are in use to replicate color subtleties. Most that we offer are produced on site on a 24" ink jet printer Epson K3 ink jet products and are tested to be light fast for 80 years. We use Hahnehmuhle Photo Rag 308 gsm fine art paper or, an equivalent Lexjet fine art smooth paper. This ensures quality results and allows for a range of customized options.

Print Formatting

Each giclée and limited edition print has a white border, wider at the bottom side. The size refers to the overall outer dimension, not image size. Images are titled at the bottom center and the artist's name is printed below. The white border varies and increases with the dimensions of the image from approximately 3/4" side and top at the small size to 2.5" at the extra large size. Signatures are in pencil at lower right or left corner. Giclée fine art prints are on acid free paper with cotton fibers. Some have a spray varnish coating, however, sweat and oil from excessive handling may discolor the surface. When framing, UV protective glass is recommended and acid free materials. Hang away from direct sunlight to protect the longevity of your purchase.

Watercolor Giclées

The giclées of watercolors are printed on textured fine art paper which emulates watercolor paper and are at approximately the size of the original art.

Personalization and Remarques

We can add a name or personalization to a print in pencil at the bottom. This option is not available for the flat small prints.

In the bottom space of the larger prints 24" x ( X"), there is room for small original pencil art. Either a quick sketch or a more detailed drawing. Contact us for pricing.

Original Art

Original artwork available for purchase ranges from preliminary sketches and drawings to oil paintings. Inquiries concerning availability and price are encouraged since sold and unsold works appear and every artwork by the artist is not represented on this website. Questions about a particular work and its technique are welcome, with serious interest. An enlarged section with detail can be emailed at a higher resolution to provide a close up sample.
