Purchasing My Photographs
Fine Art Prints
My fine art prints are printed on Kodak Professional Endura Lustre Papers - an archival quality paper that will last more than a lifetime. Lustre paper has a semigloss look that has the fingerprint resistance of a matte paper but with a saturation similar to a glossy paper. My prints are offered with a white border to enable matting or framing without image loss. Prints are personally inspected and signed by Michael Russell.
Fine Art Giclée Canvas Wrap
Fine Art Giclée Canvas Wraps are printed directly onto museum quality canvas with high quality archival inks. A lustre laminate is applied to prevent scratches and UV damage. The canvas is wrapped around a wooden stretcher frame and usually the prints edges are visible on the sides of this frame. This is ideal if you wish to hang the canvas directly on the wall. I can print a white border to prevent image loss on wrapped edges which is ideal if you are going to place the wrap in a separate frame.
All wraps come with a sawtooth hanger, bumpers, paper backing and a 1.5 inch stretcher frame. 3/4 inch stretcher frames are available on request.
