Prints are printed on your choice of either matte or glossy Hahnemühle Photo Rag® series of archival fine-art papers or Awagami Premio Unryu fine-art Japanese washi paper (matte only). Sizes are based on the International size standards of A4 (8.3x11.7 in.) and A3+ (13x19 in.).
Each print is shipped with fine-art bordering (wider border on bottom). If you would like a different bordering (larger or smaller actual image size), just let me know and I can try to accommodate.
General print border dimensions (based on 3:4 aspect ratio image - images with different aspect ratios will have slightly different borders):
- A4 print (8.3x11.7 in): Top 14.7 mm (0.58 in.) Bottom 27.3 mm (1.07 in.) Sides 21 mm (0.83 in.)
- A3+ print (13x19 in): Top 23 mm (0.90 in.) Bottom 42.8 mm (1.69 in.) Sides 32.9 mm (1.23 in.)
Prints are signed using archival-quality acid-free pigment-based pens and include a Certificate of Authenticity for your print.
Note that the image you see on a computer screen will look slightly different from the printed image due to the computer screen is seen through back-light and an image printed on paper is through reflected light. If you order on the washi, paper, the image will be quite a bit less saturated due to the character of such paper, and there are characteristic threads of the mulberry used to make the washi running throughout the paper.
The price of a print includes shipping. Prints are carefully packaged in sturdy shipping tubes and sent internationally via JapanPost EMS (Please check their website to see if they deliver to your country/region. If they do not, then contact me and we can figure another way to get you your print if possible) and within Japan via Yamato Kuroneko. Please keep in mind that an import tax may be charged in your country. It is best to check what this is (usually a percentage of the value of the package) so you can be prepared to pay that particular amount when receiving the print.
If your print was damaged during shipment, email me a photo of the damaged print and packaging including the Certificate of Authenticity. If it is verifiable, I will ship you a replacement at no additional cost.
Keep in mind that there is an 8% Japan sales tax that will be charged upon checkout.
Below are examples of what you can order. It is not all that you have to choose from. Pretty much anything you see of mine on this site or on my Instagram can be printed. If you are interested in an image not listed below, just let me know.
