Traditional Archival Giclée Prints 

I make all of my own archival Gilcée prints in the smaller dimensions of 17x23 inches and 24x30 inches [that's not the size of the actual image, read the section below "What are the sizes of each edition"]. These archival prints are mounted on archival foamcore and then placed in custom-made [in the US], hardwood, shadow box frames. There are spacers inside the frames to keep the print off the glass and the glass is specially coated to prevent 98% of UV penetration. The frames that I prefer are painted black but they are also available in white, washed grey, honey and natural [clear satin finish maple]. 

Acrylic Prints 

I also make larger sizes of prints and "face mount" them to the back of a special crystal clear, highly polished piece of 1/4 inch acrylic. These photos have no margin or matte so they are flush with the edges of the acrylic. They have the longest dimensions of 36 inches, 48 inches or 60 inches and are printed in editions of ten each. 

Eash of these prints has a piece of dibond mounted onto the back of the print to give it added rigidity. The dibond prevents the torquing or warping of the piece and then the photo uses a French cleat to mount to the wall. With the French cleat, the image appears to "float" off the wall by about an inch and the acrylic on the front gives the print a visual "depth" that I find simply amazing
