Rolled Archival Prints
Each photographic print is made with gallery quality archival pigment inks on Fine Art paper or Silver Gelatin guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Rolled prints come carefully packed in a protective carboard tube and are ready-to-frame.
Edition prints with white borders are embossed in the border by the artist and contain the hand-written edition number along with a unique serial number on the back.
Silver Gelatin Prints and face mountings are inscribed with a hand-written unique serial number and image details on the reverse side.
Prints can also be framed or face mounted with no white border. Those include a digitized signature made from the artist’s original signature, as well as the handwritten unique serial number and edition details on the back of the mounting.
We rely on the expertise of our skilled master framing partners to handle the optional framing of our fine art prints.
Upon immediate delivery of rolled prints, we highly recommend you send your prints in their protective packaging directly to your framer for careful, professional unrolling of the artwork to protect them from fingerprints and other blemishes or damage.
