I love making prints…
… but i don’t offer them for sale on my website any more!
I used to offer prints for every image on my website, but with my return to a blog-based WordPress site, it’s no longer viable to do so. For my relaunched site I’m offering anyone who’s interested in buying prints or cards the following choice:
- Buy directly from my Etsy shop. I will add specific items for sale there, rather than all the items in my Portfolio. The plan is to offer prints relating to my latest blog pieces and Portfolio additions.
- Contact me directly via this page to request a quote for a print or card of an image(s) in my Portfolio. An idea of the image size you would like would be very useful, and also whether you would like it to be mounted using conservation mount board, or a print only. I’ll get back to you quickly with your options and prices, with absolutely no obligation to buy.
Whichever option you choose please be assured that all prints are made by me on my own Epson professional printer, using pigment inks for maximum life expectancy. No-one would expect greetings cards to last as long as fine art prints, and so while the same inks are used, the papers, while of the highest quality, will not have quite the longevity of the fine art papers I use in my prints, but this does make them a more cost effective alternative.
Here are some examples of what is currently on my Etsy shop:
And here is an example of a bespoke printed image. One of my green lane photographs printed to A3 size on Fotospeed Platinum Etching paper and enhanced by mounting in Daler conservation matte board, ready for framing. These fine art papers are expected to have a life expectancy against fading of at least 80 years when used with pigment inks, and the conservation mount and tapes used serve to enhance that.
If there’s anything else you would like to know about my prints and cards, please don’t hesitate to contact me, I’m always very happy to hear from anyone interested in my images. My prints are realistically priced, but made to the highest standards, rich in detail that is not visible on a web page, and checked thoroughly before they are despatched.
