Purchasing Prints

All photographs in the gallery can be purchased as high quality photographic prints, greeting cards and post cards.

I am planning for the future to also offer matted and framed prints.. A special fine art selection is in the works, but this will certainly take a while before being implemented. Stay tuned.

 

Premium Prints

Premium quality C-Prints using high-end Noritsu and Chromira printers on professional Kodak Endura photo papers so that you always receive the longest-lasting and highest-quality photographic prints available. We offer the following paper types:

Kodak Endura Glossy: Like the name suggests, Glossy is a shiny finish that offers vibrant colors. Glossy prints are printed on Kodak Endura Paper.

Kodak Endura Lustre: Lustre is a matte finish that is fingerprint-resistant. It offers the same color saturation as Glossy, without the extra glare. Also printed on Kodak Endura Paper.

Image size and border: Each photograph will be printed with a small, 1/4″ off-white border. This will enable you to fit you print into the most common photo frames.

 

Cards

5″ x 7″ Greeting Cards & Flat Cards
Printed on 130 pound heavy white card stock that is 100% post-consumer waste (PCW) recycled, FSC-certified, and Green Seal Certified. Greeting Cards come with (but not in) an envelope.

4.25″ x 6″ Postcards
Printed on 111 pound white card stock with a soft sheen coating. Our satin paper is FSC-certified.

Image size and cropping
The original size of some photographs may not fit accurately for the selected card option. When selecting a card, you have the flexibility to crop the image and move it around in the frame, so it fits perfectly on the card you have chosen.
