How To Choose

How to choose the right type of Art and Prints for you.

Art brings beauty and meaning to any space. 

If you have the budget and the right space I always suggest originals.  But for many budgets or situations a reproduction made to order can be the perfect solution. 

Advances in printing and digital technology has made beautiful art affordable for everyone.    

Along with dramatically lower prices, the choices of presentation have exploded too. You can now have prints on canvas, a variety of Fine Art papers, acrylic, metal, or wood. This wealth of choices can be confusing.

Choosing Art

Art brings beauty and meaning to your life. Choosing art is very personal, when art connects with you, you know it. When choosing a painting, choose what you love. When you choose art in this way, you will never be disappointed.

How Does It Fit In Your Space?

Thanks to digital technology, there are no longer surprises about how the new art will look in your home. This site allows you to see what the art print will look like on your walls. You can adjust the sizes of the print to assure it fits perfectly.

The Presentation Options

Now that you’ve found the art you love, we’ll cover the perfect way to present it. This is the part that can be confusing.

Gallery Wrapped Canvas

This is a good choice for most of my art. It is simple, clean, elegant, and ready to be hung on your walls. You can choose to add a frame, but you don’t have to.

The Canvas Option

This is my prefered reproduction material because it is closer to what the original was painted on. You can choose either .75 inch or 1.5 inch gallery wrap. This refers to the depth of the wood stretcher frames. If you are not framing it, I prefer the slightly thicker 1.5 inch stretcher frame as it gives more depth from the wall and is more typical of the stretcher size of canvas paintings.


Next you want to choose what the sides will look like. If the canvas is not framed, the sides will show. You can choose any color for the sides you like. I typically choose black. Mirror image mirrors the art’s surface closest to the edges and presents a seamless look as if the painting were wrapped around the edge sides.


We offer a A Bright White, Acid Free Smooth Matte Fine Art Paper.


We hear from our collectors how nice it is to receive their new art ready to be hung on the wall as soon as it arrives.  To help with this we offer a wide variety of frames on our website.  With The Fine art Prints on Paper we offer mats in 2 inch, 3 inch, and 4 inch sizes. This refers to the size beyond the print size. Generally a 2 inch size is fine unless the print is particularly large, over 20 inches square.  You can buy Fine Art prints on paper then frame them yourself. If you have a good relationship with a framer or frame shop, this may be a good choice for you.  You can frame canvas prints and they look beautiful. If you’re on more of a budget, then the unframed gallery wrapped canvas is an excellent way to go.  You can try every option out on our website before you buy it and see how it looks to you.

Metal, Acrylic and Wood

Metal and Acrylic has a very contemporary clean look.. They are extremely durable and a good option for high traffic areas like businesses or hallways.  Many Hospitals are changing their art to Acrylic because it is durable and very hygienic (easy to clean). Wood is a new option and I could see it looking nice in a cabin or rustic home.

Conclusion and Recommendations

In my experience, you cannot go wrong with gallery wrapped canvas, either framed or unframed. This works very well with my paintings.  My go to print is the gallery wrapped canvas with a 1.5 inch depth and black edges. The prints on paper look beautiful framed with a 2 inch matt. If you order a print over 20 inches you should consider a wider matte. I hope this advice has been helpful and that whatever Fine Art prints you choose add meaning and beauty to your home and your life.
