Printing and Matting Your Photo
After you’ve made your donation and have downloaded the tiff file of your photograph, I’ll be happy to work with you to produce the highest quality print. You can choose your own printing method of course, but I’ve entrusted the photos on this site to Pixels Foto & Frame. Read on:
I’ve made an exclusive arrangement with Pixels Foto & Frame for the printing and matting of my photos. They have the files and the donation receipts, so all you need to do is call them (801-233-9090) and they’ll take care of the rest. They’ll print a 17″ x 11″ photo (or you can pick the size) on the highest quality metallic paper. They’ll match the style of the mat with the photo (click on the example of the Abion Basin Wildflowers shot). They’ll triple mat the print on acid-resistant stock, and they’ll mount it on a foam core backing. They’ll notify me when your job has been completed so that I can sign the matted print before it is shipped to you (shipping is charged separately). AND PLEASE NOTE: Pixels will graciously donate 10% of the cost of printing and matting of my photos to the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. Feel free to contact me about printing, and by all means, check out Pixels Foto & Frame, 801-233-9090.
Framing is subjective, so you may choose to frame the photo yourself. On the other hand, I can pick out a frame for you that will enhance your photo and mat, and Pixels Foto & Frame will put it together for you, all within your budget. They have a wide selection of frames, and they use UV and glare resistant glass. If you choose to go with them, Pixels Foto & Frame will donate 10% of the framing costs to the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. I’ll ship your framed photo anywhere in the United States (shipping is charged separately).
“A giclée is the closest thing a collector can have to an original… ”
– From an article appearing in Digital Fine Art Magazine,
“Why Artists Like Giclèes” by Jane Karlicek
Pronounced “zhee-clay”, (La) Giclée, so named because the method involves depositing microscopic dots of ink onto fine quality art paper. Giclée is considered to be one of the most significant breakthroughs in digital imaging today. Giclée printers can create reproductions that are hundreds of times more detailed than industrial-class inkjet or laser printers. Atelier A.F.A. is the best giclée printing house in the West, perhaps anywhere. They meticulously inspect proofs prior to printing, and the final cards are produced on the finest rag papers, which are designed to last a lifetime. As an alternative to traditional matting and framing, consider printing a set of Giclée Cards. If the Giclée option is attractive to you, I highly recommend Atelier A.F.A. As shown, Giclée cards are suitable for framing. I will be delighted to work with you, should you choose to print giclée cards. Feel free to contact me.
