Now you can buy my art prints any time and in a variety of different sizes. You can also get them framed and ready to hang if you want. I have partnered with 2 companies, Fine Art America and Redbubble, to produce and ship my prints. Both companies are "print on demand companies” which means they don’t keep a supply of prints on hand but rather make the print, and frame it if requested, when they get the order.  They both sell other items, from cards to Duvet covers, with my art on them. After researching online, I decided these two companies were best for my art. After choosing them I purchased samples of my own art in various forms to check the quality and service. I am happy with both, and I have recommendations below for different kinds of art reproductions based on my research.

Since I am not making the prints myself like I was before, and they don't pass through my hands, they are not signed and numbered. They are open edition prints. I will still sell my signed and numbered limited edition prints at arts festivals, but not through the mail.

PRINTS

For most prints, both unframed and framed, I recommend Fine Art America. I ordered several prints from both companies in order to check quality, and on the prints that I ordered the color seemed slightly better on Fine Art America's prints than Redbubble's. They also have many options for colors on mats, and many frame styles available. And they are slightly less expensive.

Framed Prints

The are many options for framed prints on paper. The Fine Art America website allows you choose the size of the print you want and to try different frames and mats. First choose what size of print you want. Then choose a frame style. I like their default frame molding (style) which is pictured below. it is one inch deep and one inch wide, and comes in many colors. There are also many other frame styles to choose from. Try different mat colors and choose a color you like. There are options for paper and I recommend the default paper which is called "Archival Matt Paper". Framed prints come wired and ready to hang. They have acrylic instead of glass probably to avoid breaking during shipping. I ordered the framed print shown below and I can't tell it isn't glass. I'm happy with the way it looks.

    The Simple Life. 8 x 7.5 inch print on Archival Matte Paper with 2 inch mat and 1 inch frame. From Fine Art America. This is a digital virtual image of the framed print created by Fine Art America's website. The website allows you to choose different framing options and see what they will look like. I bought this actual print framed this way to check the quality and I am very happy with it.

    Gallery wrap Prints on canvas

    Another Nice option for prints is prints on canvas. These are less expensive than framed prints, and they are lighter weight since there is no glass (actually no acrylic as mentioned above) and no frame. They are prints on canvas, stretched on stretcher bars that are 1.5 inches or 5/8 of and inch deep. Gallery Wraps look the most like my original paintings. I recommend the default canvas which is called "Glossy Finish Canvas" for all prints on canvas. They come ready to hang. There are four options for gallery wrap prints:

    1. 1.5 inch Gallery Wrap, mirrored sides. mirrored sides means having a reversal of the image continuing around the sides. see example below, The night Watch.
    2. Gallery Wrap 1.5 inches deep, black sides.
    3. Gallery Wrap 1.5 inches deep, white sides.
    4. Museum Wrap, 5/8 of and inch deep, white sides. These are also prints canvas stretched on stretcher bars, but since the stretcher bars are only 5/8ths of and inch deep, these prints are really intended to be framed. You can order them already framed from Fine Art America  or order them unframed and have your local framer frame them.

    The images below are not the actual prints but simulations from the website. I generally choose black sides for dark prints and white for light prints, or mirrored sides if it looks best, which I think it often does. Use the options on Fine art America. The options you choose will generate a simulation of the prints like the examples below, and you can decide which you like best.

    Stillness Speaks. 8 x 8 inch Gallery Wrap print with black sides. I think the black sides look good on this print because of the black sky.

    The Night Watch. 11 x 14 inch Gallery wrap print with mirrored sides. Fine Art America 's website will create a virtual image like this one of what the print will look like with mirrored sides. Try out the different different possible side colors, black, white, and mirrored, and see which looks best on the print that you want.

    The Fox. 27 x 30 inch Gallery Wrap with white sides. This is the same size as the original painting, which is sold.

    Oasis. 48 x 48 inch Museum Wrap with 2.25 inch wide frame from Fine Art America. This is slightly larger than the original paining which is 44 x 44 inches. The original is sold. You could also order a Museum Wrap unframed and have it framed by your local framer. It does need a frame because the stretcher bars are only 5/8 of and inch deep, so unlike a Gallery Wrap, it wouldn't really look good without a frame around it.

    unframed art prints

    These are the closest thing to what I was selling on my  website before I set up on demand printing. I was mailing them flat, whereas  Fine Art America mails them rolled in a mailing tube. It is the same kind of print as the framed print at the top of this page. As in the case of the framed prints, I recommend their default paper which is called "Archival Matte Paper". This prints needs to be framed. This option is for those who want do do their own framing or have their local framer do the framing. 

    Touring. 8 x 16 inch Art Print from Fine Art America. This is the same size as the original painting which is sold. This is a photograph that I took of the actual print, which I ordered to check their quality. I'm very happy with the quality of Fine Art America's prints.

    Art Boards

    Art boards are only carried by Redbubble. They are printed on watercolor paper mounted on 4 ply art board which is a little more than 1/16th of an inch thick. they come with velcro tabs to mount them on the wall. I like having these available because they are the most economical way to have a print ready to display. They come in a clear bag, but it isn’t tight or made for display, so they don’t have a protective surface when displayed. Anything splashed on them will damage them. 

    Back Country Bears. 8 x 10 inch Art Board from Redbubble. This picture is a computer generated image from redbubble's website. I bought an actual 11 x 14 Art Board from Redbubble of Back Country Bears and I'm very happy with the color and how it looks.

    Cards

    I personally prefer Redbubble for cards because they have a matte finish while Fine Art America’s cards have a gloss finish. Redbubble's envelopes are a nice natural color and Fine Art America’s are plain white. I do like the black box the the Fine Art America cards come in :-)

    Acrylic Blocks

    I just thought these looked cool. I ordered 2 just to see them. Only Redbubble carries them. They come in only 2 sizes, 4 x 4 inches and 6 x 6 inches. they are 1 inch thick.

    To order go directly to my pages on the Fine Art America and Redbubble sites and follow the prompts from there. Since using on demand printing to sell my prints is new for me (as of 12/05/2017) I would be interested in any feedback from you about your experience buying these prints. If you order something, and feel inclined to, please drop me an email about how your new art looks and how your experience ordering it was. Thanks for looking! -Chris
