About the Prints:
All prints are made using a Canon iPF6400 wide format printer. The ink set for this printer consists of 10 colors plus either matte black or glossy black (determined by the print surface). These inks are archival, meaning the color and intensity will not fade over time, and the prints can be produced on paper or canvas with a variety of finishing options (more on this below).
The term commonly used for prints of this quality is Giclée.
Prints on paper: The primary paper used for prints is Hahnemühle Fine Art Pearl, generally from a 24 inch wide roll although other choices may be used when appropriate. Prints on paper can be purchased with the following options: unmounted (no backing substrate, no matte, no frame), mounted on an archival backing substrate, matted, varnished (archival acrylic), and/or framed.
Prints on canvas: The primary canvas used for prints is Hahnemühle Daguerre Canvas, developed for fine art reproduction complying with the highest archival standards. Prints on canvas can be purchased with the following options: unmounted (without any backing substrate or frame), mounted on an archival backing substrate, and/or framed. All prints on canvas are finished with an archival acrylic varnish that protects the surface and inhibits UV damage. (Prints on paper may also be finished with this varnish - see above.)
Print pricing is based on the print size, the print material (paper or canvas), and the selected finishing options (options are described above). For example: The purchase price for Kapa'a Awe 3 - printed on canvas, measuring 24 inches by 24 inches, mounted on archival backing substrate and framed, is $250. Applicable taxes and shipping charges are not included in the print price and will vary by print size, destination, and so forth.

A Note on Image Quality:
To facilitate speedy page loading the images presented on this site have been greatly reduced in size from the originals, and converted to JPEG format with a maximum width of 600 pixels. These reduced resolution images will not display the fine details present in the originals. Some of the images on this site will include a close-up of a portion of the image, providing an example of the fine detail. The original image files are capable of producing large prints with no evidence of pixelation or other unwanted artifacts.
