GLOSSY OR MATTE?

Here are my thoughts on choosing the right paper finish for your print. If you want to read a little more on the subject CLICK HERE.

MATTE


My go-to finish for most prints would be matte. You just can’t go wrong. There’s minimal glare due to the slight surface texture and the colors always look spot on. So, if you’re not sure- go matte.

 

 

 

 

GLOSSY


Ohhhh, but this one is shiny! Aren’t we all drawn to glossy for some reason? Well, here’s the story- glossy paper has fantastic color saturation and your image will look very sharp due to the lack of texture on the surface but I only recommend it if you’re going to use a mat inside the frame. Sometimes glossy paper looks “funny” when pushed directly up against glass and over time, it can stick, so the mat will help keep the paper from laying right on top of the glass.

METALLIC


Now this is really something special and I only offer it on select prints that warrant it. This paper creates a beautiful luminance in the highlights of your image. Very difficult to show in photos but, in person, you really see the difference.

 


DO YOU OFFER FRAMED PRINTS?

Currently I only offer prints unframed. I’m working on adding a few framed options in the near future but until then, you can check out my Framing Guide under the resources tab.  

  


DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM SIZES?

Of course! I try to offer a few standard sizes for each product (because they’re easier to find frames for) but if you want something different, just email me and I’ll be happy to send you pricing on that option. And don’t be shy…most of my prints can be enlarged to 30 x 40 or higher if you’re like me and love BIG ART :)

  


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SHIP MY PRINT?

I make every print to order so I usually say about 2 weeks from the time you place the order. Prints go out USPS from California and once it ships you'll receive a tracking number via email. Check out my Shop Policies for more information on shipping and returns.
