PURCHASING LIMITED EDITION FINE ART PRINTS

What is a “LIMITED EDITION” Fine Art Print?

  1. A limited edition is a hand signed and numbered by the artist, typically in pencil, in the form (e.g.): 1/20. The first number is the number of the print itself. The second number is the number of overall prints the artist will print of that image.

No more than 20 or 50 (depending on the series and or edition) signed and numbered prints of each piece, (all sizes combined) will ever be produced. This will give a higher value to your investment compared with prints that are available in much larger quantities.

Sold Out Pieces

Once a print becomes “Sold Out”, it will be impossible to purchase it directly online. If you are interested in one of our “Sold Out” pieces, please contact us as we may have an edition displayed in a gallery or business somewhere.

Unique Edition Fine Art Prints

What is an “UNIQUE EDITION” Fine Art Print?

  1. A Unique Edition fine art print is THE MOST exclusive print anyone can own. Only ONE copy of this photograph will ever be printed. The artist will never use it commercially or print any other copies ever. This is targeted strictly for art collectors or anyone who wants to own a one of a kind piece of fine art photography. These are obviously more costly due to their extreme limited availability.

CUSTOM SIZING

The 3 most popular sizes available are (24×36 – 30×45 – 30×60 ) We are able to offer custom sizing on nearly all of our pieces. Please contact us for your requirements and prices.

Real image sizes can vary, due to the aspect ratio of each image. If the aspect ratio of an image is considerably different than the one stated in the menu, you would be contacted to approve the purchase.

FINE ART ACRYLIC-GLASS FACE-MOUNTING

DI Fruscia highly recommends this method of framing. It greatly enhances the depth of color, contrast and saturation creating a finely crafted masterpiece.

What is face mounting?

Face mounting is when the front of the print is bonded to the reverse of a high gloss acrylic sheet. This preserves the Total size of the print and raises the bar for extraordinary image quality, with a vibrant clarity of colors, deeper darker black tones and a luscious depth of contrast. This method is available in “Ready to Hang” floating version or “Ready to Frame” version. (please contact us for detail and pricing). This, without a doubt creates the ultimate viewing experience. The finest way to truly Experience the Beauty of any Di Fruscia Photography Fine Art Prints.

Ready to Hang floating version:

The Limited Edition Fine Art Print is professionally mounted. We offer several levels of finish packages to suit your tastes including choices for contemporary Recessed / Floating mounts.

 

MUSEUM WALL MOUNT – Package includes 1/8″ Acrylic Facemount with a light weight 3/4″ floating frame adhered to the back side for light weight and a low profile.

 

GALLERY DELUXE – Package includes 1/8″ Acrylic Facemount with a 2mm Comatex protective backing and an HD 1.375″ ROMA back mounted floating frame.

 

GALLERY ULTRA  – Package Includes 1/8″ Acrylic Facemount with a 6mm or 12mm Comatex backing and an HD 1.375″ ROMA back mounted floating frame.

 

The final result is simply awesome, appearing like a high gloss, high saturation HD image floating on the wall.

Ready to Frame version:

Identical to the “Ready to Hang” but backed by a 1/8″ black dibond/sintra and NO Aluminum inset-hanging frame. This version requires you to bring it to a professional framer to have it matted and framed to your liking.

This is definitely the Di Fruscia preferred choice of framing. Having a face mounted image carefully matted and framed results in the Ultimate Piece of Art that will definitely be the center of attention in any house, office or gallery.

IMAGE QUALITY AND PROCESS

These are all “REAL IMAGES” from REAL LOCATIONS. These images have not been created, or generated by computer. All images have been taken with professional high-definition digital cameras, lenses & filters on location around the world. Unfortunately, even with today’s technologies, the camera does not see the world as clearly as the human eye does. The dynamic range of today’s professional camera is still not capable of rendering details in both the Highs and Low Tones of some specific scenes. Due to this limitation, some of the images have been created using several exposures of the same scene (Some exposed for the high tones and others exposed for the low tones). These exposures are then combined carefully using a technique called Luminosity blending. This technique provides a dynamic range that is extremely close to what the artist witnessed with his own eyes while capturing the scene.

The exclusive Di Fruscia post processing treatment is applied to all images. In his film days, Di Fruscia would have chosen a highly saturated slide film like Fuji Velvia 50 to achieve similar high gamut, colorful results. Nothing is added to or subtracted from any of the images. On occasion, the removal of minor distracting elements might occur (ex, piece of discarded paper, plane in sky, sensor dust etc.).
