About the Quality of the Artist's Photo Prints

These archival quality photo prints are made using the finest Epson products.
The paper has a soft luster scheen and a good feel to it.
Quality is twofold - both paper & ink qualify. In addition, to accentuate the beauty of the image, 
the prints have an extra layer of gloss. To ensure the print meets high standards, each print is 
printed by hand, by me, on an Epson R2000 wide-format printer. 
This particular Epson paper has a lightfastness of 97 years
while the Epson ink has a stability value of over 200 years under glass -
300 years in an album so these prints will be around long after you and me! ;)

 

About the Quality of the Artist's Art Prints
(Reproductions of the artist's Original Artwork)

These prints are reproductions of my art - the majority done with oil, the others in acrylic or mixed media.
The archival quality paper that I chose is one that makes the colours 'pop' on the flat, matte surface. Using this specific paper/ink combo, Epson states, with proper care, the life of these fine art Giclée prints will exceed 110 years.

 

About the Quality of the Artist's Photo-Art Prints
(Reproductions of the artist's Digitally Enhanced Photos)

These prints are actually a bit of photography and art combined. After I choose a particular shot that I've taken, I spend many hours bringing out those elements of that particular shot that speak to me and digitally paint/transform them into the prints you see here. I print each one by hand on an Epson R2000 wide-format printer to ensure it is faithfully reproduced from the original. The archival quality paper that I chose is one that makes the colours 'pop' on the flat, matte surface. Using this specific paper/ink combo, Epson states, with proper care, the life of these prints will exceed 110 years.

No, you can pay with your credit card without a PayPal account.

What are the shipping and handling charges and to where do we ship?

There is a flat-fee for packaging, shipping & handling. (These fees are for personal orders only - please contact me regarding shipping for wholesale orders.)

To a Canadian address, there is a basic rate of $8.00 plus $0.25 per item ordered. To an American address, there is a basic rate of $10.00 plus $0.35 per item ordered. (Please note that American customers might find the rates to be a bit higher but that is due to our Canadian postal rates being higher than those of US Mail.)
Please note that items are well-packaged and rates above include tracking and a signature upon delivery.

(StoppenLook is not responsible for taxes, duties or other fees that may be charged at the border.)

Please note that, in the interest of not having your order damaged - if you live in an apartment, you may want to consider having your print(s) mailed to your workplace or a house address. Most apartment mail boxes will not accomodate flat packaging without being bent.

What if the item(s) arrive damaged?

If your order is damaged in delivery, please contact me. I would require that you forward a photo via email of the damaged item so that the matter can be addressed with the Post Office (if you are able to also photo the packaging envelope, it would be appreciated). If the photo is not clear, I may reserve the right to request you return the damaged print to me prior to being refunded.

Are the prints signed?

Art & Photo-Art prints are signed/dated by hand on the bottom front. Photo prints have a digital title/ 'photography by' mid-centre at the bottom front. Please note that the watermark (© StoppenLook) noticeable on screen will not be present on your copy. The watermark on screen is there for copyright reasons.

Print Quality

StoppenLook takes pride in offering you prints that are of archival quality. They are meant to stand the test of time!

Please note that the colour and brightness/darkness of the print may not be correctly displayed by your computer monitor. To ensure that your print looks like the original I've done, I print my own prints by hand using an Epson R2000 wide-format printer. If you have any concerns, please contact me.

Print Sizes

Print sizes include a border for framing purposes. While most prints adhere to a standard size format, the I have not enforced this standard onto prints where I thought it would detract from the overall feel of the artwork.

If you see a print in the Galleries that you are interested in or you'd like a different size from those you see in the StoppenShop, please contact me!
