Every print and album offered at Melissa Klein Photography is made with longevity in mind. I want my clients to enjoy their images for many years, and eventually hand them down to their children and their children’s children. Preservation of family history. For this reason, I offer my clients the finest available professionally hand-crafted prints, albums and other artwork. These images have been lovingly created and cared for from the initial concept to the final delivery and I know you will love them! Your finished products can be proudly displayed for your enjoyment and will be cherished for years to come.
FRAMED AND MATTED PRINTS
Framing is the optimal way to display and protect your print. I work with a local professional framer who uses a process called Conservation Framing, which employs the use of framing materials that have been proven to preserve, protect and maintain art in as close to its original condition as possible. This includes using UV protective glass, acid-free and lignin-free conservation quality mat board, acid-free foam core backing board, and an acid-free dust cover. What does this mean to you? Simply put, your prints will look fantastic, the mat won’t eat away at your print or turn yellow over time, and you will have a beautiful, finished piece of art that comes ready to hang.
Framed pieces start at $600 for an 8×12 Hahnemuhle cotton art print with a two inch white archival mat. I typically use black, white, or cherry wood Italian-made frames, along with glare-resistant glass. However, there are literally hundreds of frames to choose from, and I will work with you to find the style that best suits your home, cabin, office, or anywhere else you wish to display your art.
Heirloom albums are the perfect way to enjoy your images when wall space is limited. They are custom designed and can include all images from a single session. Premium European linen, Japanese silk and photo cover options are available with thick, lay flat pages.
COTTON ART PRINTS
The finest natural cotton Hahnemuhle papers presented in a beautiful custom cut white mat, ready to be framed. These are museum quality prints that are meant to last for 100 years or more. They are individually printed, allowed to dry, and hand inspected for accuracy. They are then sprayed for protection against UV rays, dust, fingerprints, and moisture. The archival white mats help protect the print from oils on your fingers, and also prevents the print from touching and potentially sticking to the glass when framed.
DECKLED EDGE ART PRINTS
These gorgeous cotton rag prints have hand-torn edges for a delicate, artful look. They can be floated in a frame for a unique piece of art for your home, or they can be purchased in a collection and kept in a glass box.
Digital files are available to purchase. They are delivered electronically and on a gorgeous wooden USB.
