What is the difference between Glossy Prints, Matte Prints and Canvas Giclees?
Glossy Prints: Glossy prints are on coated paper with a very smooth, shiny reflective surface and have a high-contrast appearance.
Matte Prints: Matte prints have a slight gloss with a subtle, often pearl-like texture. Matte prints show less glare than glossy prints.
Canvas Giclees: Canvas giclees are printed on textured canvas similar to the surface of a painting giving it an "art" look. Once the canvas is stretched and wrapped, it can be hung on the wall just as it is without any framing.
What sizes are prints available in?
All prints are available as 8x10,11x14 and 12x18 Glossy Prints. Most are also available in larger sizes and formats (Luster, Canvas, etc..) but each image needs to be looked at individually for size and format availability. Below each enlarged image, there is a drop down menu which shows all available formats and sizes for that photograph.

I would like to order a print on aluminum. Do you do this?
Aluminum prints are available for select images. An example can be seen on our Prices / Shipping
page. Please inquire through our Contact Form
(subject: Print / Postcard Orders)
Why are some images not available in larger sizes?
If an image is not available in our larger sizes, most likely that means the image will lose its clarity in those sizes. The printing options shown are the sizes which can hold the quality for that particular image. If you would like for us to double check an image's largest printable size, you can fill out our Contact Form
and ask. Let us know the image name and the desired size.
Do you sell digital files?
Generally the answer is "no". But we do make occasional exceptions and license digital files to museums, advertising agencies, public spaces and certain interior design projects. We also license images to reputable magazines, publications and rights managed commercial projects. All projects have a healthy budget or large media exposure to offset the risk of having digital files out in the public realm.
Fill out our Contact Form
(subject: Licensing) and let us know what the usage will be, the size and the budget. Provide as much details on the project as possible. You will also have to work with a reputable printer that will assure us in writing that the files will be destroyed after the project is completed.
I would like to order a very large print, possibly divided in sections, for a large installation. Is this possible?
We have completed several projects in which images were printed larger then 8' high and 10' wide. An example can be seen on our Prices / Shipping
If you are interested in purchasing a large installation piece, fill out our Contact Form
(subject: Licensing) and let us know the details of your project including image name, images size, location of installation and approximate project budget.
Do you sell screen savers?
At this point we do not sell screen saves of our images.
What does Light Box mean?
Light Box is a function in the shopping / gallery system which allows viewers to collect images that they like into a folder. This way you can browse the website and save the favorite images to review again later. It is a helpful function if you are putting together a group of images or want to see all of the favorites before choosing images to purchase.
The Light Box function will also allow registered users to email their Light Box folder to others to view. This is very helpful for art directors, art buyers, curators, etc... who need to show groups of images to others before decisions are made.
