CHOICE OF PRINT SUPPORTS

Canvas Prints

Canvas prints are one of the most popular styles of art due to their simplicity, lightweight, and relatively low cost.   You get a simple, elegant, museum-quality masterpiece which is ready to hang on your wall.   You can customize your piece by specifying the print dimensions, the canvas type (glossy or matte), and the color of the side wrap (black, white, or mirrored).   For an upscale appearance, you can also add a floater frame which surrounds your print and offsets it slightly from the wall.   We have a wide selection of floater frames to choose from.

 

Framed Prints

Framed prints are the traditional wall art and work perfectly in all settings.   We have tens of different frames to choose from ranging from low-cost, metallic black frames to highly-ornate, wooden frames embellished with gold accents.   All of our framed prints are hand-crafted in 3 - 4 business days by our expert staff of custom framers and delivered to you ready-to-hang with french cleats or 3 point security hooks for hospitality and commercial.  The right frame can transform almost any image into a high-end work of art, and the right frame plus the right image can create a truly spectacular addition to the walls of your home, office, country house or condominium.

Facemount Acrylic Prints

Art prints are created from artwork that has been digitized and then printed onto a museum-quality grade of paper and then laminated with a dibond stainless steel plate for maximum rigidity and durability. We recommend using acrylic prints when a contemporary look is needed and intensity of color.   We offer multiple paper types so that you can customize the look and feel of your art print.   No matter which paper you select, we print your artwork using archival inks which are designed to last for 75+ years without fading or loss of color.   You can also upgrade your art print to a framed print by choosing from hundreds of available frame and mat options.

Metal Prints

Metal art prints are a relatively new style of modern wall art produced by printing images directly onto 1/8" thick sheets of polished aluminum.   The results are sleek, modern, and visually stunning.   Metal prints are a favorite of photographers and photo-enthusiasts because they make photographic images really pop, but having said that, you'll often see paintings and illustrations printing on metal, as well.   Part of the beauty of a metal print is its simplicity.  It's just the image... printed on sheet of metal... with a french cleat on the back.   Metal prints are a popular choice in commercial office spaces, airports, hospitals, and other public settings, and you'll often find them in many contemporary-style homes, as well. For a more polished look, frame them with our choice of gallery style floaters.

 

TRADITIONAL FRAMING

OPTIONS WITHOUT A MAT

You can frame the artwork you choose without a mat on 2 variations:

1. Without mat and without border or "full bleed", meaning the frame will slightly overlap the artwork by a 1/4 inch.

2. With a white border all around, typically a 2 inch wide white border. A great look to highlight your print.

 

OPTIONS WITH A MAT

1. With an off-white textured mat: Depending on the artwork you choose, consider using the "off-white" mat for antique prints. Makes a warmer transition for antique prints set in traditional decors.

2. With a thick white mat: For a more contemporary and richer look

3. With a black mat: For a dramatic contrast. Offered only on specific prints
