A Note About Image Sizes and Ordering

There are several options when you order prints from the website. Most of my images are in an aspect ratio of 3:2, the size of my camera sensors. All sizes listed are the inside frame dimension, not the actual frame size. Since I carry both matted and un-matted frame types, this is the most consistent way to state the dimensions.

When you click on the “Buy” button next to an image in a gallery, a list of options is displayed on the right hand side of the window. Your options include:

Matted prints. I offer three sizes of matted images, using the same 6-ply AlphaCare white mat and archival backing board. Other sizes are available for standard aspect ratios on request.

Standard Image and Mat Sizes

Image SizeMat SizeBorder WidthsMat Color
6x911x142.5"White
8x1216x204"White
12x1820x264"White

Standard Framed prints. Generally, I stock two sizes of frames, in the Palladio black/brown style. Both sizes will come with TruVue Conservation Reflection Control U/V non-glare glass, a Tyvek dustcover on the back, plastic-coating hanging wire and hangers already in place, ready to hang. My stock sizes are 16×20 and 20×26. These sizes refer to the matted size, not the overall frame dimensions. For a Palladio frame, each arm is about 1 7/8″ wide. Other sizes are available, and can be custom ordered by calling the studio at 248.229.7900.

Custom Barnwood Laminated Prints. Printed on canvas and mounted permanently to Gatorfoam, these images come in two standard panorama sizes, and two standard aspect ratio sizes. Each frame is unique, made by hand, and sizes may vary. Panorama and canvas laminate sizing refers to the size of the image, not the overall size of the frame, which may vary an inch or two in each dimension. Standard sizes for normal pictures are 24×36 and 32×48. Standard sizes for panoramas are 48×20 and 60×24. Other sizes can made by special request.

Canvas Wraps. Although not listed on the site, canvas wraps are available in the following sizes. 20×30, 24×36, 26×40, 20×48 and 24×60. Each wrap is custom made. Tryptychs and diptychs are available as well.

You can see additional details about the piece you are about to order in two ways. From the gallery preview, click on the “Buy” button, which will open a list of the most popular options. Add one of these to your cart, and then view the cart. Clicking on “Edit” next to the selection’s title will let you add a note or change quantities, and will display the full product description. If you use the “Visit Shop” button from the Buy panel, it will show all the options available in several categories. Choosing one of these categories and then one of the options will show the full details.

As always, if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to call me at 248.229.7900.
