    Custom Matting and Framing of our Archival Giclée Prints



Matting and Framing Our Archival Art Prints

    Matting and Framing of our Signed Art Landscape and Nature is only for the prints we have printed.  Most of our customers do the framing themselves.  Local frames pick up are supplied with Conservation UVglass.  Shipped frames have plexi-glass to minimize breaking during shipment.


    We use only the best conservation methods and supplies.  We use All-rag matboard and only use Conservation U/V glass by True-Vue to block harmful uv light sources.  The matting is All-Rag, Museum matboard, 4/ply buffered.  We use Alphamat - Artcare by Bainbridge which has one of the highest quality matboard's available today.  The color of the mats we pick are off white and neutral whites to compliment the print with the frame.  Mat widths are noted below for the size print and frame.  If you require a different size, please email us.  We do not stock every frame size and molding and therefore a 1 to 2 weeks time is needed to custom make your frame.


    We find the moldings we carry offers some of the best possibilities for most customers.  However, many customer choose to purchase the prints loose or matted and do the framing themselves or locally at their favorite frame shop or gallery.  


    We do not do custom matting and framing of outside work.  

    We send our customers to local Galleries or Art Framing shops in town.


Frame Corner Samples we offer for framing our Archival prints.


    Purchasing our Signed Archival Giclée Art Prints.  

    Most of our customers purchasing from the web, purchase only the signed print and do framing themselves.  Use the pricing from the top portion of this chart, for prints only, with no mat or frame.




Pricing above (second section) includes a Signed Art Print placed in the mat or frame you have selected.  Use the pricing on the bottom portion of the above chart for framed & matted prints.  Dimensions are approximate as the photographer reserves artistic license to create a better cropping.   However, paper sizes used to render the finished image will allow use of mats for standard size frames.


    Archival Prints on Fine Art Watercolor papers are printed on watercolor papers include Epson 100% cotton rag UltraSmooth Fine Art or Velvet papers,  which is the same paper used by the Museum of Fine Arts - Boston to produce their faithful reproductions.  Other papers we use are Epson Professional Velvet Fine Art paper has a little more texture and is a little heavier weight - therefore, customers who have seen the differeence request the Velvet Fine Art watercolor paper for their prints almost every time.  It is a 100% Cotton rag, Acid Free Base and has a bright white surface to show off our work.   Our Archival Fine Art prints are produced on a Epson 3800 printer.


Shipping and packing is normally - $6.00 per package for most orders under $25 to a U.S.. addresses.  Shipments are sent via Priority 2/day Mail delivery.  Larger prints are slightly more, $10 to $15.00 for shipping and packing. Shipped frames have plexi-glass to minimize breaking during shipment instead of the UV glass.
