Displaying Your Images

So… you have a finished gallery of wonderful photographs that capture the true beauty and character of  your high school senior, your family,  or, simply, you. Now what?

It’s time to think about how you’re going to use the images we created together… and I have lots of ideas for you about how to display your images.

I love helping my clients display and enjoy their photographic images. I’m passionate about it!


Beyond Prints… And Prints That Go Beyond The Ordinary

Unlike with traditional photographers, all of my packages come with digital images. I know you want these digital images so you can use them however you would like, including social media, digital frames, screen savers, and more. And I really encourage you to think about having some of the images printed so that you can enjoy them for years to come. Whether you are displaying a single large canvas of your family portrait above your fireplace, or you have three-to-five standouts of each of your children in your living room, professionally printed products are an excellent way to continue to enjoy the images from your photoshoot. There is just something infinitely more satisfying about seeing your images printed than seeing them on your computer screen. Please don’t let them stay exclusively trapped in a folder on your hard drive!


You Have A Nearly-Infinite Array Of Outstanding-Quality Choices

I don’t focus on product sales… but I do want you to be informed so you can make the best decisions for yourself. That is why I created this guide to walk you through the process of ordering professional products directly from your finished gallery. Of course, If you would like any help along the way, I am very happy to answer questions, or walk you through the process remotely or in person. I have carefully chosen an excellent professional printer whose firm is directly linked to my website – to ensure that you receive the highest quality products. I also have a very low mark-up compared to many other photographers – to make it as economical as possible to order professional quality products. You will be amazed at the quality difference delivered by a professional printer compared with what you’d get from consumer places like Costco, Walmart, & Walgreens. For one thing, consumer sites apply an automatic color-adjust process that can really mess up both color and contrast. And the quality of printing, ink, and paper just doesn’t compare with what my pro printer produces.


How to order

To start the ordering process, click on the “BUY PHOTOS” button in the top right corner of your selected image in your gallery: Select “This photo.” 

Next, you’ll need to select which type of product you would like to purchase. The most popular options are Paper Prints and Wall Art. If you are looking for a print to frame yourself, choose “paper prints”. If you would like a Canvas Wrap, Standout, Float Wrap, or Metal Print that is fully ready to hang on your wall, choose Wall Art. Feel free to check out some of the other options too. I recently did a phone case I just love! As you navigate through the process, you will be given more detailed explanations of all that’s offered. I’ve also listed below some of the information to help get you thinking right now about what you might like to have.


Paper Prints: These are Professional Photographic Prints

Through my professional printer I offer the highest quality in archival prints. Photographic  prints have a longevity of 100 years in typical display conditions and 200 years in dark storage. A professional photographic print is made using high quality chemically sensitized paper that is exposed to a projected digital image , rather than printed line by line from a color printer. Choice of finish. Choose from different print finishes, including some highly unique options: Lustre is a premium finish on a heavier paper. It offers the vibrant colors of glossy with the fingerprint-resistant finish of matte. Printed on Kodak Supra Endura paper. Metallic gives your prints a rich, distinctive metallic look with huge WOW! factor. Printed on Kodak Endura Professional Metallic Paper.


Wall Art: Great Framing Options And Beyond



Canvas

Canvas Wraps are perfect for when you want to take an exceptional image to another level. The canvas is wrapped around a wooden frame with part of the photo visible on the sides of the frame.


Mounted

Mounted on lightweight gatorboard, matboard or stryrene. This is a great option if you’d like to frame your print without glass. Why have your beautiful images hidden behind low quality glass that often creates unwanted glare, or color tinge? Choice of finish: Lustre or Metallic


Standout

Standouts are photographic prints mounted to lightweight foam with a ¾” deep black edge. These are so light and easy to hang. I use just two push pins to hang mine! Choice of finish: Lustre or Metallic


Float Wraps

Float Wraps are built to grab attention. Your Lustre photographic prints are wrapped around padded masonite, then coated it with a protective laminate for a sleek, elegant look. How does it “float?” The wrap’s black paper backing and thick ¾” gatorboard block with holes allows the image to hang extended from the wall, giving the appearance that your image is floating.


Metal... A Stunning Visual That lasts

Using an innovative dye sublimation process, your custom images are printed directly onto high quality aluminum for a clean and lasting finish. Metal Prints show off vibrant colors in a way no other medium can. Your most captivating shots take on life-like depth and dimension for an impressive display that stands the test of time. Metal Prints give your home décor an ultra-modern feel. Brighten up any workspace with sleek, stylish, contemporary art. Create breathtaking scenes in a studio or gallery space… or anywhere else! Choice of finish: White Base: Brilliant white base that allows your images to pop with rich colors.Clear Base: Allows brushed metal to show through.
