Gallery-Wrap Canvas Prints
Gallery-wrap canvas prints offer a clean presentation that focuses on the image itself without matting or glare from glass.
The image is copied and wrapped around the stretcher so the print is complete without a frame.
Compared to matted prints, the canvas prints look more like paintings, but preserve the rich colors, tonal depth, and fine details of a traditional photograph.
For a given wall space or visual weight you should generally choose the next larger size for a canvas print than you would for a matted print.
Since the canvas print is ready to hang, the total size and cost is usually about the same, but you get a larger and more detailed image with the canvas print.
After the canvas print has dried thoroughly it goes to a spraying room for two heavy coats of Glamour™ II varnish. This protective coating helps to bring out the depth and clarity of the image and allows the canvas to be cleaned with a damp cloth.
We build a custom wooden stretcher frame and stretch the canvas to make the gallery-wrap.
Each print is numbered, dated, and signed with a fine point silver marker.
The finished canvas prints are ready to hang, but those who prefer can add a frame.
Matted prints on semigloss photo paper
If you are adding to an existing collection of matted and framed photographs, or if you prefer the more traditional photographic presentation with a mat, frame, and glass, then you may want to order one of Bill's matted semigloss photo prints.
Bill makes each of these prints using the Epson Stylus Pro 11880 printer with Epson Ultrachrome K3™ archival pigment inks and Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper 250.
After drying, the print is mounted with T-hinges onto acid-free foam board. (Prints 24 by 30 inches or larger are cold mounted instead.)
Bill cuts an archival double mat from Rising® white museum mounting board, which is 100 percent rag, acid free and buffered.
Each print is numbered and dated, then signed both on the mat and the print border hidden under the mat.
Image Capture and Preparation
Bill uses a variety of Canon, Fuji and Sony camera systems.
Bill usually photographs each subject many times – like in a portrait session – using different lenses, angles and compositions, watching as the lighting and subject change, and often returning another day or season for better lighting conditions.
After each Phoji.com Adventure, Bill sorts through thousands of images and selects a small handful of outstanding images to offer as fine-art prints.
He personally prepares each print using the finest digital printmaking techniques to give outstanding print quality with Epson wide-format professional printers.
Each print is individually printed, numbered, dated, and signed.
Bill feels that the practice of limited editions is somewhat obsolete because of continuing improvements in printing technologies and in his skills as a printmaker.
He would rather offer the very best photograph he is capable of making today than sell a print from an edition of prints made ten years ago.
Bill prepares each print with great care, the limitations of his own time have made his prints naturally rare and precious.
Bill usually prepares and ships fine-art prints within a week unless he is out of town when the order comes in.
Please email if you need a print sooner than that.
The compressed images on this website cannot do justice to the fine detail and rich colors of Bill's expressive fine-art prints.
We are confident that you will be pleased with the quality of our prints, and we offer a "no questions asked" return policy to help assure you.
If you are dissatisfied for any reason, simply return the print within thirty days for a full refund. Please call ahead to let us know of any problems and to arrange for shipping.
