What is a “LIMITED EDITION” Fine Art Print?
No more than 50 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.
Once a print becomes “Sold Out”, it will be impossible to purchase it directly via our online store. 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.
What is an “UNIQUE EDITION” Fine Art Print?
They are presently only the 3 most popular sizes available via the shopping cart (16×24 – 24×36 – 30×45 ) 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.
All prints orders are now printed on Premium High-End luxurious gloss or chrome paper resulting in incredibly vibrant prints. Di Fruscia produces high quality colorful work and needs a media that can transmit that to perfection. He finds that nothing else transmits the full dynamics and gamut of colors his photographs posses than the paper he has carefully chosen.
He will always strive to create the highest-quality prints possible, and produce artwork that will decorate your soul for years to come. Again, you can order prints directly from each photo’s page in the “Experience The Beauty” top menu section. All prints are signed, numbered* & carefully shipped in a durable high quality environmental friendly tube. They also come with a pair of cotton gloves for handling. We highly recommend that you wear the gloves if you need to handle the art for any reason.
*Limited and Unique Edition prints only
We highly recommend that you do not handle the print yourself unless wearing the cotton gloves included and being extra careful. The prints are very fragile and fingerprints can literally ruined your investments. The High-End luxurious gloss paper also creases very easily especially when printed in large format…always be safe and let an experienced framer handle it.
DI Fruscia highly recommends this method of framing. It greatly enhances the depth of color, contrast and saturation creating a finely crafted masterpiece.
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.
The Limited Edition Fine Art Print is professionally mounted face-first onto 1/4″ Acrylic-Glass (Both Reflective and Fine Art grade non-reflective are available) and backed by a 1/4″ black dibond/sintra. An Aluminum inset-hanging frame is then attached to the back with a U hanging system. The final result is simply awesome, appearing like a high gloss, high saturation HD image floating on the wall.
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.
Acrylic-glass mounted prints are susceptible to scratches. As with any other piece of art, extra care needs to be taken in handling and cleaning your investment. Every print purchased with this method will be supplied with a pair of cotton gloves and an anti-static micro fiber towel.
We do not currently offer fine art framing at this time, due to shipping complications. We truly believe that this final step should be taken seriously and talked about with a professional framer to make sure you obtain quality work and material that will increase both the value and enhances your investment. Again if a print is purchased as Print-Only, we highly recommend that you do not handle it. Let a professional do the entire work for you. Always make sure they use Archival – Acid free material to protect you art for years to come.

These are all “REAL IMAGES” from REAL LOCATIONS. These images have not been created, partly created or generated by computer. All images have been taken with professional high quality 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.).
