Do you offer custom sizes?
Yes. On the site you will see 5 sizes available for each print. However, since each print is made per order, and custom sizes can be produced to fit any space. 

Just send an E-Mail with the print name you are interested in and desired size requirements, and I'll get back to you will a custom price quote.

What size should I order for my space?
For finding the right size for your space, I recommend using masking tape on your wall to visualize a good size for the piece. 
 You can also email me a picture of your wall with the measured size using the tape, and I can produce a rough rendering of what the framed piece will look like on your wall.

Paper prints can be made in single panels up 8 feet wide.

What are the differences in paper, canvas,  metal & acrylic prints?

Fine Art Matte PAPER:
The prints on fine art cotton paper are very vivid and have a bit more sharpness than the canvas. This is a 100 percent archival museum quality cotton photographic matte paper that is very thick and lightly textured. Photos produced on this paper have a very warm, almost lithographic feel to them, and are perfect for small or medium sized prints. These prints need to be framed and covered with acrylic or glass.

Fine Art Satin CANVAS: 

The canvas prints have the same vivid photographic color and detail as the prints on paper, but with an added hint of a painterly quality that results in a stunning reproduction. The canvas also has the benefit of being hung as a frame less gallery wrap and hanging without glass, which is a cost savings on framing, and virtually eliminates any glare on the print. These are not the "cut rate" canvas prints you see at discount stores, or on other websites. I only use the finest archival 100% cotton canvas for my prints, then put an additional sealant over them using a custom made non-toxic scratch and UV coating.

 "Spanish Lakes" 90in x 30" limited edition acrylic print



What is the difference between and open and limited edition print?


Each limited edition print is individually produced and signed when your order is placed, and made in sequential order of the edition no matter what the size of the print (editions of 75 & 150 & 250 are noted on each image). When each edition is printed, it is signed and numbered on the print and in the print edition registry kept in a locked safe. Each limited edition print includes a signed certificate of authenticity and is guaranteed for life.

"Washboards" Limited edition of 250

All other images are available as open edition prints and are produced with no predetermined limit to the number of copies that might be made. These are produced with the same very high quality papers, canvas & metal and archival giclee' printing process as the limited editions, however are offered at a lower cost.

 "Grand Prismatic" 90" x 30" open edition metal print


Does the text or copyright stay in the print?
No. You will see a watermark or copyright on all the image on the site, this is to help prevent theft. The watermark is not present on an ordered print.

What is the difference between the prints and posters?

Each poster is individually produced on a high quality semi-gloss photo paper. The colors are just as clear and vibrant as the limited edition prints, but the paper quality and longevity of the print without fading is not the same. However, these reproductions are much better than regular mass produced posters, and will last for years to come. These posters make excellent low cost, high quality gifts perfect for framing. Posters are available in one size only 30"X10.

What type of framing do you offer?


I offer simple framing for all my images:
Paper: Black, walnut and barn wood framing with acrylic glazing
Canvas: 1.5" or 2" thick gallery wrap, black, walnut and barn wood framing. (UV spray sealed canvas)
Metal & Acrylic: Frameless with french cleat hanging.

• Other framing options are available. Please E-Mail or call 406-522-7798 for more info
• You may also just order the print as "No frame, rolled print only
" and then have it framed at your local framer to your exact specifications.

Where are the barn wood frames made?
• Reclaimed barn and fence wood from right here in Montana. I make every one of these frames custom to compliment each image. Every piece of wood is unique in it's color, texture and tone and makes a one of a kind framing option for your print.

What is the finished size of the barn wood frame?
Barn wood frames are about 3" wide, so they will add approximately 6 inches to the width and height to the total print size. For example, a 45"x15" canvas print will have a rough finished dimension of 51"x21".
