Prints Explained


A reproduction or print is created from a professional, high-quality digital capture of an original painting. Only the highest quality process and materials are used to create your custom art reproduction. This page details the different formats offered so you can select what will work best for your needs.  

PRINT OPTIONS

Print Size:
You can select from a number of size options. These have been pre-selected based on the dimensions of the original artwork. If you are interested in a custom size that you do not see listed for the individual artwork, please contact us for custom size options. 

Material and Framing:

  • Style 
    • A paper print is printed to order on Epson Somerset Velvet paper using archival inks. Paper prints can be unframed, framed and unmatted, or framed and matted.
    • A canvas print is also printed with archival inks, but this option is printed on high quality, museum-grade canvas. This material is a bit more durable than a paper print. You have the option to purchase a canvas print rolled, gallery wrapped (mounted over 1.5" deep wooden stretcher bars), and a gallery wrapped print with a floater frame. 
  • Frame Options
    • Paper prints can be framed in black, white, or a natural wood frame. All framed paper prints are wired to hang, and come with Standard Acrylic and a 4-ply mat sized appropriately for the selected print. The addition of a mat creates a visual break around the artwork and protects your print from dust and wear and tear. For more information on mats please see below. 
    • Canvas prints that are gallery wrapped can have a floater frame added in white, black, walnut (dark wood), silver, and gold. A floater frame is a style of frame where the art is mounted from behind making it appear as if the stretched canvas is "floating" within the frame. All gallery wrapped canvas prints with and without a frame arrive ready to hang with the appropriate hardware. 
  • Unframed Options
    • Paper prints are offered with an unframed option if you already have a frame that you would like to use or plan to frame your work later. Please note that unframed paper prints are printed with a white border.
    • Canvas prints are offered with a rolled option and arrive with a white border so that they can be stretched without losing any of the image.
    • The unframed/rolled option(s) is/are excellent if you are looking for economically priced shipping. 
Matting:
Framed paper prints can be matted or unmatted. Mat sizes are pre-determined based on the size of the image. For the total dimensions after framing and matting, please see the table below. Please also note that frame and matting sizes are approximate within a 1/2". To request a custom matting size, please contact us at prints@sorellegallery.com with the title of the print(s) in which you are interested, along with any other specific information pertaining to your order (i.e. print size, frame color, and requested mat size).
SHIPPING AND RETURNS

Please allow 7-12 business days for production. Once your order is complete you will be emailed the shipping details to track your order. All reproductions are made-to-order based on desired preferences allowing for personal customization and less waste. Because of this level of customization we are unable to offer refunds or returns.  

OTHER INFORMATION
It is important to note that some original works use metallic silver and gold paints. Special attention is used when photographing these works to translate these effects to traditional inks. Print reproductions are not produced with metallic inks but will print as they appear in photographs.
