This listing is for any image you would like for me to print from the 6x6 square format page in my portfolio. If you're interested in Holga images, we'll need to discuss! Please contact me.
Note: I have options for this size print:
1) print only *See note below
2) print hinge-mounted to a 12x12 conservation quality mat, titled and signed in pencil below image on the mat, comes with backing board and packaged in cellophane.
3) if you really want me to- I can mount and frame the image in a frame described below
I strive to make my work as close to ready-to-hang as possible.
The 12x12 mats I had cut are standard frame size so frames are easy to find. The frame described below, as a suggestion for easy self-framing, is a record album frame size and therefore a bit larger.
The print size is tailor made to fit well into the mat that comes with the very inexpensive, but nice looking, * 12.5 x 12.5 IKEA frame shown in the photos. link to this frame in the following description.
The mat that comes with this specific IKEA frame is a nice, warm white that compliments the print, not a harsh white that is often in mats that come with frames. Frame shown is the 12 ½x12 ½ aluminum, LOMVIKEN Frame. I will send strips of archival, linen tape so you can easily attach the print to the mat if you choose to pick up one of these frames.
I print in a traditional wet darkroom so each print is hand printed. When I get a nice print, I try to make multiples so there are several to choose from when they dry and I can inspect them. I pull the successful ones and number them according to the print date. That means they're open edition prints, but each printing yields a slightly different print since I'm not a machine! I number those prints according to the print date.
After the prints dry, I press them in my heat press, look over them under a magnifyer, and use a touch up ink (Spot Tone/Marshall's spotter) to clean up any dust spots caused by dust that was on the negative when I printed. Hey, I live in the desert, there's dust. I title, date, and sign the back of prints in pencil.
