About Our Paper
We print on mould-made 100% cotton rag, acid-free archival papers or heavyweight Exhibition Gallery Canvas. Each print is inspected before shipping. Sizes are in inches.

Margins
All of our prints come with a margin: 8.5x11 and 11x17 prints have .50-inch margins; 19x13 prints have 1-inch margins; 22x17 prints have 1.5 inch margins; 30x24 Special Edition and 47x34 Magnum prints have 2-inch margins.
