Dura Plaq Print
How Does the Dura Plaq differ from Matted and Print-only Prints?
All fine art prints (print-only, matted and Dura Plaq) share the same initial characteristics:
All prints I sell are images I have personally captured.
Each image is carefully developed to my artistic vision, using Adobe Lightroom.
My final vision is created when I personally print each image using my Epson Stylus Pro 7900 printer with Epson Ultra-Chrome HDR ink
The paper is exclusively 100% acid-free, cotton rag Breathing Color’s Pura Smooth paper.
Upon completion, each print is personally and individually signed by me, in the lower right corner of the print, using an acid-free ink.
With triptychs, each panel is individually signed as well.
The difference comes into play after the print is created.
After Printing, to Colorado, then to you
Upon completion of your print, I then send it to a Colorado firm where the print is mounted securely to an “eco-friendly” 3/8” thick board. An attractive black bevel edge finishes the trim. The back and all sides are sealed with black paint, further accenting your print.
The print itself is treated with an acid-free, non-gloss UV protective finish. Do this preserves the natural colors wihin your print, further drawing out the depth of the image.
Your finished Dura Plaq print is shipped directly to you, ready-to-mount, via FedX Ground. Delivery for the total process is approximately 3-4 weeks. You do not require any further matting or framing.
What Is A Dura Plaq Triptych Print?
Dura Plaq triptych prints are an extremely attractive way to occupy that large space on your wall.
In each of the triptychs below, each panel is 20” wide by 40” high, making the overall triptych print dimension 40” high by 60” (or more, depending upon spacing) wide.
Just as with all of my fine art prints, I print the triptych images prior to having it mounted as a Dura Plaq. Each panel is signed in the lower right corner.
How to Install Your fine art Dura Plaq Print
Dura Plaq prints are relatively easy to install. Because you will be leveling and drilling two holes for the anchors, (triptychs require a total of six holes), I suggest doing so when you are relaxed and not rushed. Please read "Mounting your Dura Plaq Print".
