Print Philosophy

Quality vs. Cost

It's easy to find very cheap options to have your images printed these days, but they are never created with archival inks or papers, nor are they created by professional printers who know their craft intimately, and whom can spot and correct the subtlest imperfections as only a professional can.

These cheap prints are simply not made to last - they are disposable. I've grown a bit sick of disposable things and the 'disposable mentality' as a whole and so I certainly don't want to have any of my images created in a cheap or disposable way. I want people who buy prints of mine to be able to enjoy them for the rest of their lives and then give them to their kids and grandkids as the years pass.

Because of this, I do choose the highest quality materials to have my prints created and I will only ever trust professionals (at Color Services) to create them. With high quality and craftsmanship comes a higher print price that can end up being exorbitant for many people who would like to have big, beautiful landscape and nature prints in their homes.
