I am updating this post by adding yet another intro. I now print my own using Archival paper & an Epson R2400 printer. This is creating bigger and better and more durable prints than I have been able to outsource.
Here is what was in the terms page until today:
When you purchase the print of a sketch here is what you get.
A minimum 10×8 inch print made on Fuji Crystal Archive Paper (matt). All the prints, even when they are landscape mode are printed on paper in portrait mode with a wide white border. So the images may be quite small.
But it has changed. I will use an ink-jet process using high quality papers & pigment based inks that pass the durability tests. I will out-source that through a third party, I have several I am trying out. The prints look better in ink than in the photographic chemicals. Eventually I will get my own printer, I want that creative control. I’d get one right now but the one I want is not available in NZ. More on that later.
The photographic images might be of use for some things. I will leave open the possibility of a range of media, but ink-jet A4 will be the default.

Since then I have developed a relationship with a printer who does wonderful work on any media using ink with solvent based ink. I do my own prints up to A3+ and that has just taken a new turn with my ability to print on thicker Hahnemuhle rag paper, but I can do large canvasses. I am not limited to the paper edition. There could be light box editions, or lithographs or silk screens ….
