I have worked hard to deliver the highest quality art across all elements of the production process for my esteemed buyers.

The reproduction quality process for artwork involves a deep focus on quality for each of the following elements.

Quality Art Materials.

I exclusively produce my artwork using top-tier Liquitex professional heavy body acrylic paints renowned for their museum-quality, high viscosity, pigment-rich, lightfast satin finish, ensuring enduring, vibrant colors rated ASTM I (excellent) for permanence and lightfastness. I produce my paintings on gesso-coated canvas made of archival-quality, acid-free, natural cotton or linen, stretched over kiln-dried, sustainably sourced 1.5" profile reinforced wood stretcher bars.

The Highest Quality Artwork Photography & Color Matching for Vibrant Colors.

I photograph every artwork at ultra-high resolution with a dedicated natural lighting setup, employing reflectors and diffusers for precise control over light intensity, color, and light shape. Using a Nikon HDSLR 24.2-megapixel DX format camera, I meticulously photograph each piece to reproduce its true, lifelike colors, ensuring accurate color grading that reflects the authentic hues of the paint on the canvas, under natural light conditions. I convert RGB to CMYK color mode for printing as needed.

Speedy Order Placement.

When a customer such as you places an order on this Shopify store, both the printer and myself as the artist are notified automatically and immediately, and work commences quickly to ensure the process is quaick and the print reaches you as soon as possible.

File Checking to Ensure Quality.

The print-on-demand provider checks the artwork image files when chosen to ensure they meet the required specifications for quality printing. This includes resolution, color profiles, focus, and other technical aspects.

Print Calibration.

Print machines are calibrated regularly to ensure accurate color reproduction and print quality. This calibration helps maintain consistency of end art replication across multiple different orders.

Material Inspection.

The materials used for wall art, such as canvas or paper, are inspected for quality, excellence, and durability.

Print Testing.

Routine periodic testing of the printing equipment is completed to identify and address any equipment issues that might affect print quality.

Human & Machine Color Matching.

Human and machine testing is conducted to ensure that the reproduced colors match the original design as closely as possible. This is crucial for maintaining the integrity and accurate reproduction of the artwork.

Packing and Shipping Checks.

Quality checks extend to the packing and shipping process to ensure that the finished artwork reaches you the customer, in the best possible condition. If your artwork arrives damaged in any way because of the shipping process enroute, I will work quickly to ensure rapid replacement to you.

Customer Feedback Analysis.

I do surveys and monitor customer feedback and reviews to stay abreast of and address any quality concerns or issues promptly. This feedback loop is important for continuous ongoing improvement over time.

Proactive Customer Responsiveness.

You, my customer are the most valued part of my art and my business, and I want to make sure my art makes you happy….and positively changes your life. I provide rapid follow-up and attention to any quality problems with fast replacement or refund for any problems caused in the reproduction or shipping process. The paper and card stock that prints are printed on is important for quality. Both acid-free paper and archival-quality paper are designed to preserve the longevity and the quality of prints, but there are some differences between them.

My prints are replicated on acid-free, 100 percent cotton archival paper.

These premium materials provide our art print-on-demand prints with a soft look and feel, which means that they create a welcoming and hospitable touch to your home, apartment or office. But not all prints are created equal.

Acid-Free Paper:

Acid-free paper is manufactured without any acidic compounds that can cause degradation over time, and are more resistant to yellowing and deterioration for art prints over long periods. Acid-free paper is designed to last for centuries, and due to its construction, will not yellow with age, and won't get brittle in the same way that paper with acidity may over time. Most of today’s commercial paper is acid-free, as the process for making it is more environmentally friendly—important for our planet, and a bonus that it will last much longer.

Acid-free paper is suitable for most general purposes, including my art prints, where long-term preservation (100+ years), isn't a primary concern. But not all acid-free paper is of archival quality. Acid-free means that the base paper fibers must have a pH of 7 (i.e. neutral) or slightly above (alkaline). If a paper has been coated to ensure proper ink absorption when used with a printer, that coating must also measure neutral on the pH scale. Acid-free paper can have archival qualities, but may not have additional features like buffering agents or lignin-free properties that further enhance preservation.

Archival Quality Paper.

Archival quality paper goes beyond acid-free paper quality by incorporating additional features to ensure long-term preservation, but not all acid-free paper is of archival quality. Acid free archival paper can last more than 1,000 years(!!)… and is used in situations where art or documents require a longer life without becoming yellow or breaking down. It's also used commonly in the long term archival storage of art, documents and textiles. To meet that higher benchmark, a paper must not only be acid-free, it must also be manufactured using pure cotton fibers(a.k.a. cotton rag) or pure alpha cellulose fibers, which are naturally more durable than wood pulp.

It typically includes buffering agents to neutralize any acids that might enter the paper over time from external sources, including microscopic environmental pollutants from the air. Archival paper often contains lignin-free fibers, as lignin can cause yellowing and brittleness in paper over time. It undergoes rigorous testing to meet certain standards for longevity, often specified by organizations like the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) or the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

In summary, while both acid-free and archival quality papers offer some level of protection against degradation, archival quality paper provides more comprehensive safeguards against deterioration over time, typically over many decades or even centuries. If you're looking to ensure the highest level of preservation for your prints for a long time, especially if they are valuable or historically significant (as are my art prints!), choosing archival quality paper is the preferred option.
