About My Prints

This gallery represents some of my finest work over the past several years. Each print is personally printed, inspected, titled and signed by me before being shipped to you. The most convenient way to order is to use the shopping cart, but if you prefer to pay by check, or have questions, you may contact me at bruce@brucedale.com.

Quality

Commonly referred to as Giclée prints, these museum-grade prints are made with Epson's finest high-resolution large format printers using state-of-the-art materials. Longevity when framed under UV glass far exceeds 100 years. Most of my prints are on luster paper that exhibits vibrant colors with extremely deep blacks. When framed behind glass, it is virtually indistinguishable from matte prints. However, there are a handful of my images that look best on a high quality 100% rag matte paper. These are images where the "softness" of the scene is enhanced by this paper. Moonlight at White Sands is an example and matte paper will be automatically be used unless you request otherwise. Other matte images are noted during the print selection.

Size

The size indicated in the print selection is the actual image size and is rounded to the nearest tenth of an inch. There will be at least a 1-inch border on all sides. Overall delivered size including borders will be 2 to 4 inches larger depending on your selection. Custom sizes are available; please e-mail me with your request.

I do not offer mats or framing, but remember that you'll want to have at least 3 or 4 inches on each side of the image for a mat. A 7x22 panorama print will probably have a finished overall size of about 15x30 inches including frame.

Specialty Prints

Over the years, I've worked closely with SFC Graphics in Toledo, Ohio on special projects. If you have a use for images reproduced for exterior use, wallpaper, signage, or other they are a reliable company that can accommodate you. Here is a 6x25 foot print from one of my panoramas destined for exterior use.

Image
