Fine Art Prints may be ordered in four different styles:
Professional Satin Finish Exhibition Prints
My current paper choice is Hewlett Packard’s Professional Satin. With a superb tonal range, accurate color rendition and 200 year archival stability, there is no other premium paper that compares. I prefer to print all of my Landscape work on this paper for a distinctive, timeless appearance.
Deckle Edged Fine Art Paper
Allure Rag is a 100% cotton premium grade fine art paper with a semi-gloss surface, and is specially designed for high-end giclée reproductions that require exceptional color gamut and archivability. A hand-torn edge exposes the cotton fibers and adds an elegant touch. Allure Rag displays a great amount of detail and depth and is my preferred media, along with canvas, to print my scanner art images.
Archival Canvas Prints
This canvas, made by Breathing Color, has a rich, generous tonal range and is the material I prefer to use to capture the vivid colors of my scanner art. Once the print is finished, it is allowed to dry for 24 hours before a protective coating is applied. The coating protects against moisture, fading, and damage to the surface. Finally, after another 24 hour period, the canvas is attached to a stretcher frame in a classic gallery wrap style. This method ensures a clean, contemporary presentation, and the work is ready to hang.
For a stylish, ready to hang option, choose the ColorBox mounting method. The print is professionally mounted on a sturdy high density MDF wood substrate and a special protective vinyl laminate is heat-pressed to the print, making it UV, water, and fingerprint resistant. A major advantage of this mounting style is the matte finish laminate which greatly cuts down on glare, enabling easy viewing of large prints, even in bright rooms with harsh lighting. ColorBox mounted prints are also very easy to care for; you can clean them with a soft cloth dampened with a bit of glass cleaner.
All of Tim’s images are printed on the Hewlett Packard DesignJet Z3100 wide-format printer. The Z3100 is one of the most highly regarded and advanced printers on the market today, employing 12 archival, pigmented inks to produce incredibly rich, vibrant prints with a rated life of 200 years or more.
