Printing & Paper
Our photographic prints are produced on Kodak Professional Endura Premier Paper using the chromogenic printing process. We've chosen this method for its archival quality, rich and consistent colors, and proven stability over time.
Giclée prints are archival pigment-based artist's prints. These prints come on a smooth neutral white matte paper (similar to a smooth watercolor paper). This method also has an excellent archival quality, rich and consistent colors, and proven stability over time. In addition, Giclée prints are an excellent option of you'd like to hang the print without a frame like a poster.
Scott has extensive experience in print reproduction for fine art books and brings this knowledge to the production of maps, ensuring that the highest quality product is of utmost importance.
There are 4 main size groups (A, B, C, D) and an extra-large size E in the State Elevations Series. Because each map has unique proportions, most maps have slightly different sizes and the sizes below are approximate. Check product pages for exact measurements.
Our custom frames are simple white gallery frames that compliment the maps. They are made of wood and include: UV-shielding acrylic, which protects against about 89% of UV rays and 92% of light transmission. They include an archival acid-free foam core backing, protective paperback finish, hanging hardware and nails, and hanging and care instructions.
