Portraits are more than a purchase, they're an Investment
They're an investment in your family. With everything digital these days, we feel that a printed and displayed portrait is now more important than ever. Sure you can share your images freely over the internet with friends and other family, but what about the family within your own home? Do you have to turn on an electrical device just to see your treasured photographs?
When considering the size of portrait to choose, reflect on where you will be viewing the portrait from. Somewhere close at hand; a bedside table, hall stand, or office desktop can easily display a smaller portrait size where the viewing distance will be within a few feet. Larger wall portraits are appropriate for various reasons, but most importantly to be able to view and enjoy the portrait from a normal viewing distance which is more likely to be 8 to 15 feet away. The rule-of-thumb says that the ideal viewing distance is 2-4 times the diagonal of the image (not the frame).
PLEASE NOTE: There are many more options available than are listed here. We also offer Collages, Greeting Cards, Folios and Photo Books. If you don't see what you're looking for here, please contact the studio.
If you can't decide on only one image, you may be interested in our "Master Wall Collections".
Master Canvas Portraits
Although we do print smaller sizes on canvas, these are usually selected when you want a portrait that is 24" or larger. You have the option of a traditional Museum canvas, designed to be framed, or a Gallery Canvas, where the canvas is is 'wrapped' around the sides of a thick stretcher, displaying part of the image either mirrored or extended around the corners. No framing is required on the Gallery Canvas, although we do have mouldings and "Float Frames" for these as well.

Master Canvases are printed on the finest archival acid free canvas with no OBA (optical brightening additives) to discolour over time. We also use premium (Made in Canada) quality "keyed" stretcher bars to ensure a tight stretch that will not sag (and may be manually adjusted if they do). Master Canvases are guaranteed for life.
Of course, we can also frame your canvas in one of the many fine mouldings available. All canvas prints are protected with a UV inhibiting protective coating to resist fading and provide added protection against scuffs and scratches. When properly displayed, these prints can resist fading for well over 100 years.
Canvas Portraits do not require any sort of matting, glass, or further mounting to display. When the cost of these are added to traditional paper prints, quite often the extra cost of the canvas becomes more attractive for a 'wall ready' Portrait.
NOTE: Due to the nature of canvas wrapping, finished sizes may vary up to an inch from stated dimension. Second canvas pricing available from the same image ordered at the same time as the original.
Heirloom is the term we use when your Portrait is made to the same exacting standards as our Fine Art Photography. We carefully select the best paper for your portrait, one that will provide you the quality and longevity you'd expect from a Fine Art Print.

The portrait is printed with a border around the image for safer handling and to help protect against contaminating the actual printed image. Yes, you can leave these prints in your Will, which is why we call them Heirloom!
These portraits are best displayed with a mat under non-glare UV protected glass. We have a a beautiful selection of traditional and contemporary frames to compliment your portrait.
Please Note: If we do the framing for you, we unconditionally guarantee the print against fading. Unfortunately we cannot offer this guarantee if your print is framed elsewhere.

Signature Wall Portraits are printed on a premium lustre finish paper. Final dimensions will be determined by the aspect ratio of the cropped image. If you are unsure about which size to select, please contact the studio.
Signature Gift Portraits are printed on our premium lustre finish paper. Smaller portraits, up to 11x14", are traditionally used for gift giving or displaying on tables or mantles.
These prints are delivered un-mounted and should be professionally framed under glass.
When you don't have enough images to create an album, our new Portfolio Cases are the answer. Portfolio Cases are designed to hold matted prints and are available in two sizes to hold up to 12 or 24 matted prints with a minimum order of 6 prints.
Our Portfolio Cases are finely crafted with elegant Charcoal Linen and a luxurious velvet floor, kept closed by a hidden magnet closure. Mats are available in either Arctic White or Matte Black with a white core. Mats are also acid free and finished with an inside bevel to highlight the print.
The prints may be matted in either an 8 x 12" or 8 x 10" opening within an 11 x 14" outside dimension mat. Many people will take one of the matted prints and display them along side of the Portfolio Case on an easel. You then have the option of rotating the print on display with the other prints in the case. You may also mount the 11 x 14 mat under glass and into a frame of your choosing. These may then be displayed on an appropriate easel or on your wall.
|Portfolio Case with 6 Mats||248.|
|Portfolio Case with 8 Mats||268.|
|Portfolio Case with 10 Mats||288.|
|Portfolio Case with 12 Mats||298.|
|Additional Mats in 24 Capacity Portfolio Case||$10.|
We've priced our Portfolio Cases to include the case itself as well as the acid-free mats. This allows you to add prints (priced separately above) in either our Fine Art 'Heirloom' finish or the 'Signature' Lustre finish.
When you order more than 12 matted prints you will be upgraded to the 24 capacity Portfolio Case at no additional charge.
