Print Details & Options
Greg personally prints and then carefully inspects every photograph he sells. Most are printed on 13.8 mil, 300 gsm, archival, and fine art grade paper with a lightly textured semigloss surface. The paper base stock is acid-free, lignin free, and buffered with calcium carbonate with a life expectancy of over 1,000 years (if not exposed to direct sunlight, water, or physical damage). It is FOGRA Certified ISO 9706 (paper aging standards). There are no markings or logos on the back of the paper. The paper recreates the look of wet darkroom fiber paper.
I found that a few photographs look better on photo-quality paper, but most look better on museum-grade paper. I choose whichever paper makes for a better-looking print but you may request the archival/museum-grade paper if desired.
By default, all photographs will have a white border (example and more details below). If you desire, you may opt to order our photographs without a white border. The Image Size you choose is the size of the printed photograph (with or without a white border). The border's width is not included in the size you choose. (More detailed information follows.)
Border and Signature Options
All photographs will be printed with a white border surrounding them and are personally hand-signed and numbered in ink by Greg on the right and the title of the photograph is printed on the left. The frame is not included.
With this border, the photograph is typically large enough to fit in a larger standard frame size than the photograph size you order. For example, if you order a 12-inch x 12-inch photograph, it will typically be sized 14-inch x 14-inch including the border. To ensure you source a correctly sized frame, we strongly recommend you purchase/order your frame from your favorite frame dealer after you have received and measured your full print.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you'd like to order an image in a smaller, larger, or custom size or a different ratio. We're happy to check if that photo can be resized and/or cropped to fit your desires and provide pricing.
Please note: If ordered without a border, Greg’s signature will appear on your edition card, not on the photograph itself. Additionally, when ordered without a border there will still be a fine white border around the image for safer handling. If you would like to display the photograph without any white border simply have a framer use a matt board or trim it off.
Each print comes with a signature on the back of the print and an edition card, plus a certificate of authenticity. Examples are below.
The back of the photograph is detailed with photograph and printing information, size, and the edition number (if any) in pencil:
The printing and edition information will also be duplicated on a card with Greg’s signature so you may affix it to the back of your own frame’s backing.
