Photo art prints -purchasing guide

Thank you for considering purchase of some of our photographic art prints.
All images are printed and delivered to you straight from the artist's studio, skipping the usual middleman/retailer step – thus offering you genuine fine art works at significant savings. Each of our artist-photographers decides on the sizes of prints offered and on any other options, such as making a print available as limited edition, mounting options, etc.
Most images are offered as prints only, shipped in mailing tubes or flat. This gives you extra shipping savings, and a more flexible choice of mounting/framing, using your local frame shop.
However, some of our fine limited edition prints may be offered for your convenience mounted, ready to hang. (As an additional option.)
If an image is offered as limited edition (LE), it is always a really small edition (usually 25) worth best collections, and your art print will arrive with certificate of authenticity.
While we use standard paper sizes, cropping of each photograph differs and your image may have unprinted sides of paper. (For example on paper of size 11x14" image may be centered and taking space of 10x14", or 11x13" with small white margins). This is normal in most galleries' printing procedures, and a custom-sized matting is recommended.
We offer our photographs as Fine Art Prints (printed on world's best, thick, museum-grade art papers), and also – for your additional savings – as Posters, large prints on a very good but thinner Premium Photo Paper. Thanks to this option you can own a large image at a highly reduced cost, or opt for a collectors' quality, including limited edition print.

Here are details:
Fine Art Prints (open edition) - printed on world's best, thick, museum-grade photo art papers (in standard sizes), using professional archival inks and top equipment. These prints are simply stunning.
Posters - for your additional savings - large prints on a very good but thinner, easy to roll Premium Photo Paper (with border-less printing). Thanks to this option you can own a large image at a highly reduced cost. You can pin it onto wall, or mount and frame it like top quality Fine Art Prints.
Limited Edition Art Prints (LE) – absolutely best collectors' quality, numbered, with certificate of authenticity. Printed on customized paper size, 17” x as much needed by your selected image. This may make them even bigger than fine Art Prints from Open Edition, as the image will use full paper space. These are most amazing prints we are able to offer.
Limited Edition Options: as Print Only – or Mounted If print only, it will arrive well protected, ready to mat/mount or frame it exactly the way you like.

If Mounted option is selected - Print will be mounted flat on a thin and lightweight aluminum composite panel, perfectly flat and ready to hang. Panel has a special riser on back side, and when hung - it appears to be floating an inch or so on front of the wall. This is the cutting edge, most modern, sleek way of displaying art photography. Typical cost of such mount alone is in excess of $200. Panel is durable, light and safe to ship. Your panel will be in exact size of limited edition print you are ordering. Image has no glass on front, so you can appreciate viewing every smallest detail. Print is protected against dust, UV rays and finger prints by art varnish.

If you are interested in a specific image but cannot find the size or option you desire – please contact the artist directly, and we will try our best to accommodate your request.

We personally prepare all prints, using professional archival inks and papers of the highest quality. Our inks and photo/art paper meet museum requirements for durability. Depending on image, we may print your order on different types of paper to ensure the best look (rag, satin, photo fibre, etc.). However, on request, your order can be printed with other stocks - including stretchable art canvas (extra cost may be involved).
All works are signed front, back and on the panel if provided.
Limited edition fine art prints are printed on absolutely best gallery-type art paper available, with signature, numbered, and with certificate of authenticity.

(Indeed, it will look even much better than on your computer screen!)
We appreciate your purchase, and so on top of our low direct-to-client artwork price, we wish to help you with the expense of the shipping of your order. Therefore each order includes PARTLY SUBSIDIZED shipping cost. Small orders (below $90 Canadian Dollars) are only charged a small flat $5 shipping fee. Larger orders (over $90) – both rolled in mailing tube or mounted and shipped in flat boxes – are charged only $15 for shipping – regardless of destination. This gives you significant additional savings. We ship via Canada Post, with low shipping cost being our priority (may be slow surface mail).

Standard Canada Post insurance includes up to $100 value. We can add extra insurance AT YOUR REQUEST, however, this may result in extra border fees if shipped internationally. All border fees, duties and taxes are the responsibility of the purchaser.

Handling and Care:
You should receive your print in perfect quality and condition. If your ordered print is shipped in mailing tube, please remove it from the tube carefully and slowly with a twist motion. Unroll and leave protected on a flat surface for two or three days before mounting/framing the print. This will help print return to its natural shape without any forced distress. (Alternatively, you can give rolled print to your frame shop for proper handling and mounting).
Don't try to quickly flatten a rolled print by rubbing it against any sharp edge or rolling it forcefully in opposite direction. That could cause irreversible damage to your work of art. Handle with care, please! Your print was created on fine photography paper and may have a fragile surface.
Please avoid scratching surface by NOT stacking it with anything else, and avoid finger prints. Using gloves when handling is recommended.
Please protect your image from extensive and direct sunlight, humidity, and other extreme factors. Like all fragile works of art, proper display will prolong its lifetime. We do our best to provide you with exceptional work, but we cannot be responsible for damage due to improper handling or displaying.
In case of damage in shipment we will replace any damaged work for free, if fully insured. We will work with you to make sure replacement process is smooth. However, it is YOUR responsibility to inspect for damage promptly. All damage claims should be done within 1 week of receiving your shipment. We cannot be responsible for claims made after that period, or for claims unrelated to damage in shipment (like damage caused by improper handling).
Returns: All work is printed specially for you, a single print at a time, and at a very favourable price. Therefore, regrettably, we cannot accept returns of your order, all sales are final.
By placing your order you confirm that you understand and accept the above terms. Additionally you accept that – in case of ordering fine art nude images – you are of legal age, and you will not hold us accountable for any damages or other legal issues resulting from your purchase. You also acknowledge photographer's copyright and pledge to respect it.
Final words:
Thank you for supporting our co-operative Gallery. We appreciate your patronage, and hope the work of art you ordered will provide you with lots of enjoyment for many years to come.
