About Our Prints
We print on mould-made 100% cotton rag, acid-free archival papers or heavyweight Exhibition Gallery Canvas. We use professional Epson printers with 10-color Ultrachrome inks. Each print is inspected before shipping.
8.5x11 and 11x17 prints have .50-inch margins, 19x13 prints have 1-inch margins and 22x17 prints have 1.5 inch margins. 30x24 Special Edition and 47x34 Magnum prints have 2-inch margins. Canvas prints have slightly wider margins for stretching. Because all images do not exactly share the dimensions of our papers, there is often a wider margin along the narrowest side.
