Prints are produced using Epson Ultrachrome K3 pigmented inks on Hahnemühle
Fine Art Baryta paper. The exceptional color gamut and unsurpassed longevity of this
particular ink-set coupled with the glossy finish 100% cotton paper at
325 grams/square meter, make for an end product very satisfying in both
sight and feel, as well as bringing peace of mind knowing the archival
properties of the materials used. The technology is now such that these
prints will outlast traditional photographic processes.

All prints are created by myself
one at a time. Starting with color film positives and black and white film
negatives, each image is first scanned at very high resolution, then carefully edited
for color and density.
The finished print is signed
with a hand printed (my cursive is illegible) signature on the bottom right border.
On the left
bottom border is the individual print number over the total number of pieces
in the edition. Also on the bottom border, between the edition number and
signing, printed out by hand is the title of the piece. On the reverse side
is written the copyright notice, a declaration of originality, date of
original positive or negative, date the print was created, and a cursive
(now that you can read my name from the front)
signature. The information on the reverse side is also included on a
separate sheet so that it may be accessed without disturbing the print in
its final display.
Mounting consists of a backing
of four ply, bright white, acid free, 100% cotton rag museum board. The print is
thereto affixed with linen tape along the top border. This procedure allows for
relatively easy removal in the event the mounting should ever be damaged, as well as
leaving unrestricted any dimensional changes in the original that might
occur due to fluctuations in atmospheric humidity and temperature. Overlay
board is the same material as backing. The window is cut to leave approximately
1/4'' of space around the image where the border information may be seen. Back and overlay are joined with a
linen hinge at the top.
All prints are made to order.

Your satisfaction is of prime
importance to me. If you are dissatisfied, please contact me within
of receipt to work a happy resolution. The good news is that I'm a bit of a
nut when it comes to perfecting the printed image and in 16 years have not
had a return.
Please bear in mind that
computer monitor displays vary considerably and will likely not convey in
exact detail all the information contained in the final print.
