Print Quality Standards

  • Archival Processing
    All work must be processed to archival standards.

  • Professional Processing
    All work must be in saleable condition, with an unblemished print surface and careful spotting of dust and imperfections.

  • Sign your work
    Sign and date your prints in pencil either on the front or the back. Do not sign the mat!

  • Editioned Prints
    If you limit your editions, note your edition numbers using a pencil. Example: 1/5. Do not put edition numbers on the mat!

  • Mat Standards and Guidelines

    All work must be professionally matted using 100% rag board using the following guidelines. As a service photo-eye will mat your prints for a fee (see below). This fee will be deducted from your share of the retail price.

    - No over cuts in corners of the window cutouts
    - Straight cuts with clean bevels
    - Sufficient margins to isolate the image
    - No print corners visible
    - Do not sign the mat
    - Do not create a separate window for your signature

    Professional dry mounting of work is acceptable if
       archival materials are used.
