Limited Edition Prints

"Limited Edition" for my prints means the following: I will print and sell exactly 100 images in the sizes 24x30 and larger. During that time period, the image is available in all sizes, and is sold in an open edition in smaller sizes. When an edition of an image is sold out, it will no longer be printed again in any size, even as an artist's proof.

Prints are available in two primary styles: Photobase prints, printed on photography paper or velvet-like stock, or gallery-wrapped canvas prints. Photobase prints are suitable for mounting and framing traditionally. Canvas prints present the images differently, do not require expensive framing and glass, and have superior archival qualities for long-term display.

Pricing & Details - Gallery-Wrapped Canvas Prints

Because of our subjects and the unique dimensions of our photography, we highly recommend the gallery-wrapped printing option for the majority of our prints. All of our canvas prints are "gallery wrapped" which refers to the way the canvas is stretched over a high quality wooden frame. The image "wraps" around the side of the frame and is stapled onto the back. This gives the pictures a three-dimensional finished look and allows you to hang your piece without a frame, identical to the practices of high-end art galleries.

DeepEarth does not generally offer "fully-framed" options for photobase prints. Where you plan to display the artwork significantly affects the choice of framing style, and we want you to be able to select the appropriate frame have the artwork fit your décor. If you absolutely insist on a ready-to-hang, fully-framed photograph, DeepEarth will be happy to work with you to meet your needs on a custom basis!

Prices shown do not include sales tax or shipping and handling. Artwork can generally be delivered via USPS or UPS, but special shipping is required for larger and odd-sized works. Please contact us for a custom shipping quotation. Shipping and handling is invoiced at actual cost. Shipping generally takes 1-2 weeks for notecards, puzzles, and unmatted prints in normal sizes, and 4-6 weeks for matted or gallery-wrapped prints, and for larger prints. The extra time is due to supplier lead times for printing. Please also understand that although I have email access daily, when I am traveling for my career there may be a delay in order processing until I am able to return to my office (generally on the weekends) to work on your order. I thank you for your patience and understanding, and promise that I will work on all orders at the earliest opportunity.

Prices are subject to change at any time; they are generally reassessed annually to determine changes in supplier pricing. After you receive your custom quote from DeepEarth, please click here:
