The paper prints are digitally printed with archival inks on textured fine art paper. They can either be printed with a 2-inch white border surrounding the image or with a deckled edge. With a border, the edition number and signature appear in the white area. With a deckled edge, the edition number and signature appear on the image itself. Some images (primarily those with a white background) will only be offered with a deckled edge as the artist feels that is the best presentation of that image.
Dye-sublimation onto metal is a new, cutting edge, way to reproduce an image. Sublimation itself is the process of going from a solid to a gas, back to a solid – skipping the liquid state. The image is printed to a transfer paper, heated to a very high temperature and then as it cools the dye is infused into the aluminum. The aluminum print is then mounted to a cherry wood cradle and is ready to hang.
