ARCHIVAL COTTON PRINTS
These gorgeous cotton prints are made of the same archival materials as our framed wall prints, but in a desk-size version. Hand-torn deckled edging can be added for a delicate, artful look. A great option for those who don’t want their prints matted. A thin white border is added to prevent fingerprints from touching the print.
MATTED COTTON PRINTS
Our finest eco-friendly prints on natural cotton 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 – over twice as long as a traditional lustre print. These are not mass produced by a machine. 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 mat helps protect the print from oils on your fingers, and also prevents the print from touching and potentially sticking to the glass when framed.
Our framed print is a true heirloom piece of art, meant to be handed down for generations. The prints are on Hahnemuhle natural cotton paper, which has a much longer lifespan than traditional prints. The matting is archival, and will not deteriorate or turn yellow over time. The frames are made from real wood. Glare-resistant museum glass is used, which blocks 99% of UV rays from reaching your print, and also allows you to be able to enjoy your print without glare or reflections (click here to see my video on museum glass vs traditional glass). The framed piece is finished with a fully enclosed back and a hanging wire.
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 leather cover options are available with thick, lay flat pages.
