Each original image is created by Mike Shipman and printed on archival, museum-quality materials for long life. Images are generally printed full frame from 35mm, which typically results in a wider or taller image than "standard". For example, 8x12 instead of 8x10. Full frame and cropped image sizes are reflected in the print dimensions when you order.
Photos are printed on archival paper with at least a 1" white border on all sides around the image. The title, creation date, and artist signature are in pencil on the white border of the print. The creation date is not the creation date of the original image, but the creation date of that particular print. All prints are un-numbered, open-editions unless specified.
Fine art and limited edition prints as well as smaller, machine prints are available on my Fine Art Gallery page. Just click on the icon, then the Prints tab, and specify the quantity of each size you wish to order.
