Print Types

In order to provide ready-to-hang art in additional sizes, I have modified my offering as shown below.   These prints arrive ready-to-hang with picture hanger included.  I do all of my own printing, mounting and packaging for shipment.
  • 2 sizes (15x10, 18x12, LxW) printed on canvas and mounted on black Sintra®
  • 3 sizes (24x16, 30x20, 36x24, LxW) printed on canvas and mounted on natural Gatorboard
  • 3 sizes (18x12, 24x16, 30x20, LxW) printed on aluminum.
  • 3 sizes (15x10, 18x12, 24x16) printed on polypropylene and face mounted to plexiglass®  

 

Canvas Mounted on Gatorboard:

Gator Board, also known as Gatorfoam, is the industry's leading heavy-duty foam board. Instead of foam board's paper surface, Gatorfoam is comprised of a wood pulp impregnated with plastic surface. The wood fiber veneer provides a high structural strength. It is lightweight, extremely durable and long lasting. I purchase 1 inch thick gatorgoard, cut to the sizes I use (24x16, 30x20, 36x24), with a black finished edge (see finished  print below), which hides the foam.  

The canvas prints are glued onto 1 inch thick Gator Board with a black finished edge & have UV protection applied (see image to right).  Two small hooks with eyelets for attaching hanging cable are hooked

 into the back of the Gator Board and glued to prevent moving around (see image to left).  Plastic-coated hanging wire is attached to the eyelets for hanging the print.  The back of each print also contains information on how the image was printed, where it was captured as well as my bio information.

The image on the right shows the black finished edge which covers the foam center of a canvas print mounted on Gator Board.

The prints are carefully packaged for  shipment and arrive ready to hang.

I have created 3 videos to highlight the above process as follows:

These videos also apply to Canvas Mounted on Sintra®

 

Canvas Mounted on Sintra®:

Sintra® is an extruded PVC board which is fairly rigid (depending 

on thickness) and well suited for mounting photographs. I purchase pre-cut sheets in smaller sizes (15x10, 18x12) than Gatorboard in order to expand my offering on the lower end. 

The canvas prints are glued onto 3mm (~1/8 inch) or 6mm thick (~ 1/4 inch) black Sintra® & have UV protection applied (see image to right).  For hanging purposes, I use 3 standoffs glued to the back of the Sintra® sheet (see image below) with hanging wire attached to the top 2 standoffs.  The back of each print also contains information on how the image was printed, where it was captured as well as my bio information.

The prints are carefully packaged for  shipment and arrive ready to hang.

 

 

 

 

Aluminum Prints:

For printing on aluminum, I purchase Allure Photo Panels from Breathing Color.  These panels are coated to accept aqueous pigmented inks from my Epson 7900 dot matrix printer.  When feeding sheets to this printer, it will not print all the 

way to the edge so the sheets have to be trimmed.  The current offering from Breathing Color is a matte finish, so they are laminated with a glossy film with UV protection added to protect the print as well as provide depth.  The laminated prints are then trimmed to eliminate the unprinted border.  For hanging purposes, I use 3 standoffs glued to the back of the print with hanging wire attached to the top 2 standoffs.  The back of each print also contains information on how the image was printed, where it was captured as well as my bio information.

The prints are carefully packaged for  shipment and arrive ready to hang.

 

 

 

 

Face Mounted to Plexiglass®:

Face mounting to plexiglass requires a very smooth print, not possible with canvas and other fine art papers.  For face mounting I am printing on 11 mil polypropylene, purchased from Lexjet, which is very smooth.  The print is laminated with film containing adhesive on both sides.  The laminated print is then laminated onto 3 mm Plexiglass®.  Stiffening of the face mounted print is provided by a layer of 3mm pvc, which is coated with an adhesive.  For hanging purposes, I use 3 standoffs glued to the back of the pvc with hanging wire attached to the top 2 standoffs.

The image to the right shows an end-view of the image.  Looking closely, you can see the thin white line (i.e. the edge of the print) between the plexiglass® on the left and pvc on the right.  You can also see the three stand-offs & hanging wire on the back of the image.

The back of the face mounted prints contain information on how the image was printed, where it was captured as well as my bio information.  The prints are carefully packaged for  shipment and arrive ready to hang.
