ABOUT THE PRINTS
Unlike many art-centric web sites, we don't outsource our prints -- since 2007, we've been making them ourselves in Madison County, Alabama, and Payson, Arizona, filling thousands of orders every year for individual customers as well as contract work for corporate, institutional and government clients. Our prints are a quality product, made using top-of-the-line, piano-size Epson printers with 11-color Ultrachrome inks and premium papers from Arches of France and Ilford of Germany. Our large-format prints made from glass negatives the size of windowpanes offer detail unrivaled by modern photography.
FRAMING
Framed prints are offered in five sizes (details at right), matted behind clear acrylic in wood frames with a black satin finish.
