Frequently Asked Questions
Below are a few questions clients have asked. If you need to get in touch with me in any way otherwise, you can either fill the contact form on the contact page or send a message to my work number. The form and my number are available on the contact page.
Can I see what it would look like before I purchase?
Yes, certainly, just click here for easy instructions, and I will show you what it will look like on your wall.
What sizes are available?
I have priced each piece by the largest size available. You will have a revised price when you get your previsualizing proof and you can tell exactly what size is best and what it will actually look like. (This is always fun!)
Actually, having the large piece on your wall in front of you, of course, is the experience.
I am always available should you have any questions.
What is a Glass Print?
Acrylic is a versatile material that replaces glass in sign making. It’s more high clarity, impact resistant and lighter weight than standard glass.
I can of course always print on regular glass but it needs to be thicker and is considerably heavier. There is an additional charge for this service and it will depend on where you live.
Acrylic can withstand direct sunlight and UV rays. Combined with the UV printing system you can rest assured that your pictures on acrylic will retain their vibrant look for years to come.
Optium Museum Acrylic has similar anti-reflective properties as Museum Glass with less weight for larger sizes.
The image is printed within a clear perimeter which allows the color and texture of your wall to show through as the mat. Please remember that the size quoted includes the clear see through mat. If you do not want the mat just let me know. That will mean that the image itself will be larger.
What is a Giclee Print?
Our WATERCOLOR images are printed using the GICLEE (inkjet) method on fine art rag paper. It is rated for 200 plus years fade resistance and this process is eco-friendly and printed with water based non-toxic inks.
To maintain the integrity of a giclée print on paper, it is important to protect the work behind glass. To maintain the integrity of your artwork, an acid-free mat and custom framing are provided as well.
What kind of frames do you use?
Each piece is custom framed by a local framer who shares my love of the creative arts. She does beautiful work. I also have backup framers whose work I also respect.
All paper products used are archival and of the finest quality.
Do you offer Limited Edition prints?
A fixed number of copies printed, usually individually numbered
and signed by the artist, e.g. 3/25, indicating that this is the third
impression from an edition of 25 copies. Plates are often defaced or destroyed when the edition is complete to prevent later printing. The size of the edition affects market value.
An Artist Bill of Sale and an original Certificate of Authenticity will be included with each sale.
A limited edition print is a reproduction of the original artwork.
What makes it special is that, when it is printed, the artist or
publisher will assign a specific number of prints to be made. This group
of prints is referred to as an edition and each print in the edition is
Why are Limited Edition and Artist Proof Prints More Valuable?
