The Process of Ordering Fine-Art FROM US
First thing to understand; this is Fine-Art, not art that can be purchased from a "Big Box Store". The craftsmanship and artistry are completely different than anything you can buy from a retail outlet store. So we want to set the proper expectations. That being said, if you want cheap reproductions of canvas art that everyone else owns, which is made on cheap materials that are only meant to last a few years... then our Fine-Art is not for you!
We pride ourselves in providing the highest museum quality materials that are meant to last a life-time. We pride ourselves in providing unique Fine-Art pieces that will become the Focal Point to any room you chose to display it in. We don't apologize that our Fine-Art isn't the cheapest thing you could put on your wall and understand it's an investment in your décor. When you choose our Fine-Art to be displayed in your home or office... it becomes a bold statement of who you are! These images evoke the senses and become a focal point... that is why it matters.
Pick The Fine Art You Want To Purchase
Once you've decided on the Fine Art you want to purchase, click on that item, and the website will guide you through seamlessly helping you choose all your options for the order. You will notice the price changes as your selections change (ie: Sizing, Medium, etc.).
Decide Final Location Of Where You Will Display The Art
Go to the area you are planning to place the Art, measure the appropriate sizing it should be, If you are ordering any Art Installations (multi-panels), our overall measurements include the negative white space between the panels, you just need to decide the coverage area.
Select Your Medium (Really Important)
The Medium you choose is one of the biggest factors of how the Art will look, and can also greatly effect the pricing (some mediums cost more, some less). To assist you in this choice, click on the "?" located above each medium for a short video or explanation of what it is. The artist also indicates suggested mediums that will be suited to this specific piece... just click "see full description & specifications" link above the ordering menu.
MEDIUMS TO CHOOSE FROM
There are literally hundreds of mediums we could offer, but to simplify and make sure you don't get overwhelmed... the artist has pre-selected certain mediums to choose from. We have narrowed it to 4 main categories... Paper, Canvas, Metal, and Acrylic. You will sometimes also see the option for Coasters/Greeting Cards/Calendars occasionally. Also note that Art Installations may not have as many choices.
We offer up to three different type of Paper Mediums. These include: Kodak Endura Metallic (glossy metallic appearance that has exceptional visual interest & depth.), Watercolor Fine Art Paper (heavy weighted & textured), and Smooth Fine Art Paper (100% cotton & bright white). Matting, Mounting & Framing options available, or just order the print.
CANVASFine Art Canvas Wraps are printed directly onto Museum-Quality canvas material using high-quality archival inks (unlike what you get when you buy art from retailers). Your choice of Glossy, Lustre Laminate or Metallic is applied to protect the surface of the print. Available In 3/4", 1-1/2", and 2-1/2" depths. Note: framing options are only available for 1-1/2" depth canvas.
METALPrinted directly onto aluminum with the option of High Gloss Metal with Brilliant White (vibrant and our most popular option), or you can choose Sheer Glossy Clear Metal (allows the metal to show thru where white is part of image... can really add to the artistry of the piece). Note: if you are ordering any Art Installations, Metal prints are only available in White Gloss finish.
ACRYLICAcrylic Prints are beautiful photo prints face-mounted to plexiglass with polished edges. Acrylic's clarity and substantial feel is an impressive way to elevate your artwork. The 3D luminosity of the polished surface brings images to life with vibrant colors and depth. Offered with ultra-modern mounting options. Thickness is 1/8" (except for Art Installation pieces... these are all 1/4").
Select Your Sizing
Next, just select the appropriate sizing for your Art. Refer to Step 2 when you measured your wall space. The sizing options are always proportional to the height and width of the Art piece, so only the options given are available. Note: if you plan on doing your own framing and don't want to do a custom framing order, make sure it will fit your frame dimensions. If you order the framing through us, we always customize it to the Art piece.
Select Your Finishing Styles
Now pick any Finishing Styles. These options will change depending on the medium you picked. Finishing styles can be... Matting, Framing, Hanging accessories, Canvas wrapping options, etc. Click on the "?" above the Style for an explanation. Style options can change the pricing (ie: "just the Print" is less expensive than "Framed Prints").
Preview Your Fine Art
Our Wall Preview option allows you to see the finished Artwork in a proportionally accurate size environment. You can choose different environments (bedroom, living room, office, etc.), and it allows you to adjust the wall color to any color you want. This will give you a generic view of what to expect. If you need to see the finished Artwork in your actual environment, go to step 7 below.
(Option) This Website Supports Augmented Reality to Live Preview Art
This means you can use the camera on your phone or tablet and superimpose any piece of art onto a wall inside of your home or business. (your device must have camera, and you must authorize the AR to use camera). The AR preview will also show accurate sizing on your wall. To use this feature, Just look for the "Live Preview AR" button when viewing any piece of art on this website!
