*** ABOUT PROTECTIVE SEALERS ***

(4) Four choices of the final protective sealer finishes to pick from for your Canvas giclee's: "Glossy Finish", "Satin Gloss Finish", "Satin Finish" and a "Matte finish".

"I prefer to get the "Satin Gloss finish" when ordering my canvas gallery wrap giclee's. "Satin Gloss finish" is the best of both worlds, where it is not to glossy, yet has just the right amount of gloss to bring out the colors and details best. With direct lighting, when looking and standing in front of the artwork, or from a 20 degree side viewing angle, the artwork will not have a hot spot light glare bouncing back off the art into your eyes".

 

 

"Three new archival canvas gallery wrap art images in the drying receiving room, after they have been spray sealed with the "Satin Gloss" finishes. No light glare up to apx. a 20% viewing angle".

"Dye-Infused Metal Prints for beauty and durability that lasts".

 The Magna Chrome process represents a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated metal sheets. The metal prints take on a magical luminescence. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, the archival qualities of this unique process are unparalleled.

   Waterproof & scratch-resistant!

 

*******************************************

SURFACE FINISHES FOR METAL PRINTS:


White Gloss, White Matte, Silver Gloss and Silver Matte.

 

There are (4) four primary benefits to imaging onto metal:


1)  The colors are extraordinarily vibrant and the depth of the coating gives photos a luminous quality that no paper print can achieve. The best reason to buy a Magna Chrome print is for the incredible look.


2)  Because the image is infused into and not onto the special coating, the prints have an archival value and durability without the need for a protective glass. In fact, Magna Chrome prints are not only scratch-resistant, they are also waterproof. This makes them ideal for hanging in bathrooms, kitchens and other areas where paper prints would be susceptible to water damage. Displaying without glass has several advantages: viewing images is more intimate; there is no possibility of breaking the glass during shipment or while on display; glare is reduced.


3)  The rigidity of the metal plates allows for several unique and contemporary hanging methods that would be impossible with a paper print. A Magna Chrome print has an ultra-modern look.


4)  Economy: A conventionally framed print with matting, frame and protective glass will cost over twice the price of a similarly sized Magna Chrome print complete with a contemporary frame.

How permanent is a metal print?

Images printed with the Magna Chrome process will last for generations when displayed indoors and out of direct sunlight. Like any fine art print, Magna Chrome prints should not be exposed to direct sunlight . However, they can be hung outdoors if they are out of direct sunlight. Metal prints have an archival value that is better than the best giclee’s and photographic papers. Rochester Institute of Technology has conducted accelerated aging tests on metal prints and show an archival value of over 150 years.

Plus, Magna Chrome prints have an additional benefit over other processes in that they are waterproof and have an ultra-hard coating that is virtually scratch proof. The archival value of a print should be judged not only by its resistance to degradation by U.V. light and ozone exposure, but also to moisture and surface damage. When these factors are brought into the equation, Magna Chrome prints would be, without a doubt, the best way to preserve an image.

 

*Note: Before ordering any "Dye infused Metal Prints", please visit "Magna Chrome's" website and learn about detailed information on their product line. They are the experts in their unique process and products and will gladly assist you should you call them.

CUSTOM PRINTING SIZES

 

*Example for creating and printing custom shapes for my customers:

If there is an image area of a landscape artwork (rectangular layout) that would look good printed in a circle layout, then I can (most times) select that specific image area, edit it to get the best circle results. *Note: (Additional custom editing fees maybe required in order to meet your specific request or get your desired results).

 

"In general when I am designing my new original artwork, the digital files begin at a very large size. So a 48"in. image or larger is standard for me, at 300 dpi.  This large file size allows me to re-print and crop or re-size the artwork in larger sizes and into custom shapes ".
