Ordering Information

Ordering Information

This website includes an e-commerce system that allows you to select and purchase photographs. Or, if you feel more comfortable, you may order by phone, fax, email or letter. We will be happy to answer any questions you might have.

The information below describes our standard way of handling orders. If you have specific needs or requests please contact us and we will try to accommodate you the best we can.

What You Can Purchase

Fine Art Photographic Prints: All images are available as signed and numbered fine art photographic prints. They may be purchased in a choice of paper type and size, loose, matted or framed. Many of the color images can also be printed as black and white photographs.

Posters: A small group of images have been produced as posters. These are available signed or unsigned but unlimited and only as loose pieces rolled and shipped in a tube.

Paper Types: I prefer to print on glossy photographic papers for maximum color saturation and sharpness. You may choose between a paper-base photograph (Fujichrome Type R/Fuji Crystal Archive) or the more expensive polyester-base photograph (Fujichrome Type R Supergloss/Fuji Crystal Archive Supergloss). The color of both papers are virtually identical, but the polyester-base supergloss provides more durability as a loose print and a bit more "pop" off the surface. Both papers have a UV filter layer in the emulsion.

Print Sizes: The approximate image sizes (in inches) are 10x14, 14x20, 16x24, 20x30, 27x40, 34x50 and 40x60. Custom sizes differing from the above may be possible but could entail some cropping of the image to achieve the desired proportion. The cost of a custom size is priced at the cost of the size of the paper on which the image is printed. Murals from 40x60 up to just about any size imaginable can also be ordered with the image being applied to a variety of substrates. Please ask for quotes.

Matted/Framed Sizes: The approximate matted/framed sizes for the above photographs are 18x21, 22x28, 24x32, 28x38 and 36x48 respectively. The 2 largest sizes are only available as loose prints and are shipped to you rolled in a tube.

Matting: All prints in the 10x14 through 27x40 inch size may be ordered matted. The print is mounted before matting using a pH neutral pressure-sensitive adhesive on 3/16 inch Gator Foam to achieve a very smooth surface. Mounting on rag board may be specified at no additional cost, but the surface is not as smooth. The mounted prints are overmatted with 2 museum-white archival mats, leaving a 3/8" liner of the same white mat showing to provide more depth to the photograph. A small range of neutral toned mats are also available. If you are interested in customizing your mat treatment, you may want to order the print as a loose print and take the print to your own framer.

Framing: Matted prints may be ordered with a matte black square profile metal section frame (Nielsen #93-21) for a classic, clean treatment that provides a clear separation of the framed piece from any wall color while complementing any color (or black & white) tones in the photograph. Framing prices include regular glass. Specialty glasses (non-glare, 97% UV protection, plexiglas) at additional costs may be specified.

Signature: All photographs will be accompanied by a signed identification label. Matted prints will be signed on the mat with the edition number, title and location on the left and the signature and date on the right unless requested otherwise. All loose prints will be signed on the face of the print unless specified to the contrary.

Editions: All prints are numbered and limited to a maximum of 100 per size and paper type. Posters are unlimited. You can read more about editions at our page Fine Art Photographic Prints.

Pricing: Prices are indicated on the pull down menus accessed from the selected enlarged image page.

Payment, Shipping, Receiving Your Purchase

Payment: You may pay for your purchase by credit card, check or money order. We can accept your credit card on our secure e-commerce system online or by phone, email, fax or mail if you prefer.

Confirmation: Once we receive your order, you will be sent an order receipt email automatically. Once we have a chance to review your order, we will send you an order confirmation by email responding specifically to requests you may have made, or adjustments to costs because of shipping or framing preferences. Credit cards will not be charged until you approve our final order confirmation.

Shipping: You will be able to select your shipping preference during "checkout." All shipped orders will be professionally packed and sent fully insured. A street address and not a Post Office Box must be supplied for shipment. Costs to cover packing, shipping and insurance via UPS ground services are approximately 15% of the photograph order. If you are ordering in quantities that can be shipped in one package or loose prints in tubes, your shipping charges will be less. Exact shipping costs will be emailed to you for your approval after we receive your order. Credit cards will not be processed for either the photographs or shipping costs unless those charges are agreeable to you.

Delivery: Typically, the photographs will be ready to ship within 3 to 4 weeks of the receipt of payment. We will notify you by email when the order has been shipped.

Receiving Your Purchase: Please be sure to open your package very carefully and inspect the contents thoroughly. If you have ordered a loose print or poster that arrives rolled in a tube, we would recommend that the print be unrolled and handled by a professional framer since loose prints can be easily krinkled or damaged if not handled properly. The photographs will have left here in pristine condition and will have been shipped fully insured. If there has been any error or damage that needs to be reported, notify us immediately. Retain all of the packing materials this is critical for proper reimbursement from the freight carrier.

Displaying Your Photograph: To ensure the longevity of your photograph please be sure that it is framed behind glass or plexiglas. While the photographic emulsion has a built in UV filter layer, be sure that the photograph will not be exposed to direct sunlight or continuous fluorescent light. If it will be displayed in a bright room that receives a lot of indirect sunlight or where there is continuous fluorescence, we would suggest you frame it using a conservation glass with UV filter at an additional cost. If the photograph will be hung in an area that causes a lot of glare, we can provide you with a non-glare glass (regular or UV) at an added cost.

Guarantee: We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If, for any reason, you are not pleased, return it to us within 45 days of shipment and you will receive a refund or exchange credit for the print purchase price. Due to the high costs of producing prints to order, we will have to ask you to be responsible for the packing and shipping costs both ways.

Returns & Exchanges: All returns and exchanges must be received by us in resellable condition in the original packing materials or professionally packed, and shipped fully insured. If the returned item has incurred damage that is not the responsibility of the shipper, the cost of restoring the item to a sellable state will be deducted from the amount to be refunded or credited for exchange. Refunds will be paid in the manner of payment that was originally provided by you.
