Framing & Mounting

Your own taste and the style of the room where you plan to display your print will have a major impact on the style of framing. To assure the longest lifetime for your prints, purchase the print unframed and select a professional framer who can provide archival mounting using acid-free materials and glass or plastic to protect against ultraviolet light; as well as helping you select appropriate mats and frames to complement the image and your room. A print can be shipped flat in a protective mailer much more securely and at less cost than a print in a mat or frame.

For your convenience, we can provide prints in a handsome, commercial quality mat and frame. The frame is a thin border, silver color, aluminum with outside dimensions; the shadow effect double mat uses acid-free materials. Larger prints of 26x40 are flush mounted on a stiff, lightweight board, and can be enhanced with a simple border frame.

The illustration above left shows two viewers studying a framed print as well as a 26x40 mounted print; at the exhibition in the Salem, Mass. Old Town Hall. The framed print (right) is hung on the brick wall of the Row Gallery, Salem. Both exhibits, 2006.

Notes on the prints


Please handle your prints carefully. Avoid touching the surface of the print, handle by the edge and back only, and use the clear shipping envelope to protect the print until you can have it framed.

Print Sizes and Image Dimensions

Print size is the size of the sheet. Image size is based on allowance of 0.5 " all around for matting; and 0.5" all around for white border and signature under the image. If your framing method permits a larger image, or you prefer a larger mat window, please advise the precise maximum on the long dimension. The short dimension will be about 2/3 of the long dimension.

Technical note

The photographs are made using a Nikon digital camera and lenses in 1:1.5 format (like traditional 35mm slides). The prints are pigment on paper, individually printed by the artist using Epson Ultrachrome K3 Archival Pigment Inks on Epson Professional Media or other archival stocks. Oversize prints (26x40) use the same technology and are printed and mounted by a professional printer under the close supervision of the artist. Each print is part of an open edition and signed by the artist in the bottom margin. If stored and framed to archival standards, the prints should last at least a lifetime.
