Print Products 

> Following are the types of print products that you can choose from.

  • Gallery Prints
    These are exhibition quality, archival fine art prints. Available on Glossy or Lustre (semi-gloss) print surface. Prints may also be ordered with “vivid” Metallic paper. Mounting of Gallery Prints is available on archival 3mm Styrene in black or white. Other mounting substrates are available upon request.

  • Metal Prints
    Images are printed using an ultra-sharp dye sublimation process that produces stunningly vibrant and long lasting colors. The photo is printed directly onto ultra-smooth, premium grade aluminum with 1/8 inch rounded corners. The final product has a high-gloss finish that gives the image an amazing luminescence, dimension, and clarity.

    These durable metal prints are scratch resistant and may be safely cleaned by wiping with a soft cloth with water or a mild non-abrasive cleaner. Microfiber cloths also work well.

    Metal prints are sold with or without mounting brackets. If you require mounting brackets, they are listed in the products menu, and sold separately. If ordered, the mounting bracket(s) will be attached to the backside of the metal print for no-hassle easy hanging.

  • Premium Canvas Art Wrap
    Printed on fine art archival canvas, wrapped around a wood frame and ready to be hung as is. Can be ordered with "vivid" Metallic inks (special order).

> Select the image you would like to purchase, then choose the size and print type, then click the "add to cart" button to complete the purchase. Once the order is completed the image will display in the shopping cart section, which will allow you to check out or continue shopping.

  • Print Packages
    We have created some print packages (multiple prints in specific sizes at a set price) which may be purchased at a discount. If you would like to order a package, you will need to register on our site first, and complete the order before you can choose and checkout the specific images/prints that you selected.

Image File Download / Rights Managed Terms

> Some images are available as digital files which you can download. All digital files, whether for web use or print use are "Rights Managed". We license our Rights Managed images to editorial, advertising, corporate, and non-profit entities for all uses, including books, magazines, calendars, brochures, flyers, greeting cards, post cards, internet, and other applications. We charge a one-time usage fee which depends on the actual and specific usage of the image. Licensing can be tailored to your needs. You will be granted a license for a one time, non-exclusive use, but exclusive rights can be negotiated if required. Additional uses require a separate agreement. Receiving a license does not transfer ownership of the image, or any intellectual property rights therein to you. Our general terms are as follows:

  • Web Usage
    These files can be used on one domain only (i.e. www.yourdomainname.com) They can be used on as many web pages within that domain as you desire.

    Image files can be altered if necessary, but they can not be included in any composite that is resold.

    The image files CANNOT be resold.

  • Print Usage
    These files are a higher quality for use in printed publications/applications. They have a resolution of 300dpi and are saved as high quality JPG files. Should you require higher resolution or different file types, please contact us directly by phone or email with your specifications.

    You are granted a licence for a ONE TIME USE - This means that you can use the image for one type of publication or application. EXAMPLE - If you use the image in a brochure, you do not have the right to then create a new product such as a magazine ad which uses the same image.

    Prices on downloaded files are for that resolution image. Higher resolution files are offered on a different pricing structure based on type of usage. ie; a small brochure ad for a nonprofit organization will carry a lower price than a usage involving, for example, a nationally published magazine.
