About the Prints
Most images displayed in the galleries are available for sale as fine art prints. Focus is placed on the Featured Fine Art Print Gallery. With so much art and so many artists, I would be honored to have one of my prints displayed on a wall in your home, office or reception area anywhere in the world. All prints are professionally prepared right here in my home town. A brief description of the different options available are displayed below. Please note: The Passionate Frame watermark is for website display only and will not appear on your print.
Hahnemühle Torchon Fine Art Paper:
A Bright, natural white watercolor paper with a distinct parchment or pastel-paper surface that blends well with images and gives them an impressive three-dimensional effect, depth and feel. Loose prints come with no mounting, matting, or frame. Extreme care must be taken when handling the loose prints to avoid water damage, fingerprints, or creasing prior to framing.
Fine Art Canvas:
Fine Art Canvas prints are available for those who prefer the look, feel and texture of traditional canvas wraps. Fine Art Canvas prints are gallery wrapped on solid stretcher frames with a 1.5 “ profile and come with saw tooth hangers and bumpers. The unique satin semi gloss solvent finish applied to the canvas is resistant to moisture, fingerprints and other similar contaminants. While not as luxurious as a Metal or Acrylic Print, Fine Art Canvas prints are a fine alternative.
Plaque Mounted Prints:
Plaque Mounting is a popular unique way to display your artwork and is an attractive alternative to framing.
A metal paper print is mounted to a 1 inch deep MDF board, foil-edged and slot machined on the back ready to hang. The finished product is durable, elegant, and eye-catching. The Plaque is then finished with a satin semi gloss leather textured laminate giving your art a unique look and feel.
High Gloss Metal Prints:
Metal Prints are dye infused images produced on a thin aluminum surface where the end result is a vibrant print with deep bold colors, brilliant luminescence and impressive detail. The surface is scratch-resistant, waterproof/weatherproof and can be easily cleaned. To compliment Metal Prints, a unique extruded aluminum hanger frame is attached to the back, where you can hang and display your prints such that they appear to be floating off the wall. These prints are a stunning, modern presentation that arrives ready to hang with no external framing needed.
Metal Prints may also be ordered mounted on a 5/8” wide Black Shutter Float frame by Larson Juhl if a framed print is preferred.
*Please note: Metal Prints are produced on aluminum that can sometimes contain small surface imperfections on the aluminum print surface. We carefully place images so if there are imperfections, they are in the most unobtrusive part of the image. Unfortunately we cannot accept returns on prints due to these imperfections.
Acrylic Mounted Prints:
Acrylic Mounting is a contemporary method of displaying your artwork. Your print is intensified when mounted under acrylic making the colors more vivid and giving the piece a sense of extra depth. All Prints are produced on Kodak Metallic paper. A Light Blocking (opaque) film is applied to the back of the print and an optically clear adhesive is then used to face-mount the print under a premium 4.5mil Acrylic. The acrylic is put through a sanding and buffing process that brings the edges to a clear polished finish. A Neilson Metal moulding is mounted behind the image to provide a “hidden” shadow mount such that the Artwork appears to be floating off the wall.
As with the Metal Prints, a 5/8” wide Black Shutter Float frame by Larson Juhl is also available to display your Acrylic Artwork.
An information sheet for proper cleaning and handling of the acrylic material is included with all Acrylic orders. Cleaning, polishing, and scratch removal kits are available separately.
