Materials & Framing

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right. I use only museum grade materials, with details as follows.

PRINT ONLY SIZES

Most photographs are available in four standard print only sizes: 11x14, 16x20, 24x30, and 32x40. These measurements represent the paper dimensions in inches. Actual image dimensions will be smaller than the paper dimensions and will depend on the proportions of a given image. If you would like a print in a size other than those listed, please contact me.

FRAMED SIZES

Most photographs are available in any of four standard framed sizes:

11x14 Print – Framed 16x20 (small)
16x20 Print – Framed 24x30 (medium)
24x30 Print – Framed 32x40 (large)
32x40 Print – Framed 36x48 (extra large)

If you would like a custom print/frame size combination, please contact me.

PRINT TYPE AND LONGEVITY

All photographs are pigmented prints on archival paper that offer maximum quality and display life. Black and white prints behind glass have a minimum estimated 500+ year display life. Color prints behind glass have a minimum estimated 100+ year display life.

MOUNTING

Prints are dry-mounted to 4-ply Alpharag Artcare 100% cotton matboard using a removable archival grade dry mount tissue. Alpharag Artcare offers preventative conservation protection that meets or exceeds all industry standards for permanence. Invisible archival spacers around the frame edge separate the mounted print from the glass.

GLASS

All framed prints are protected behind museum grade anti-reflection glass or acrylic. The particular glazing used depends on the size of the framed print and shipping considerations. In addition to UV protection, these products offer anti-reflection properties that are basically like magic. You'll see the print behind the glass, not the reflection of your room.

FRAMING AND FRAMING OPTIONS

Nielsen frosted silver museum grade aluminum frames, considered the classic exhibition frame, serve as the standard framing option. These frames complement, rather than compete with, the framed print. Final prints appear as shown below.
