I found out while painting this painting that every Rapunzel story I have been told is a lie. Okay, sure, there are lots of different versions, but most versions told nowadays have had all the good parts cleaned up. Figures! Prints are signed and archival. Note that this image is very narrow, so prints are narrow also. Matted prints have a finished outer dimension of 8"x10".
We always try to make the image as large as possible. 8×10 prints are on 8.5″x11″ paper and 13×19 prints are on 13″x19″ paper. The actual printed area may vary a bit depending on the dimensions of the painting. For example, a tall and narrow painting might yield a printed area of 6″x10″ on an 8″x10″ print. A more squared painting might be 8″x9″, or even 8″x8″. The size is usually mentioned in the image description, but if you need exact dimensions please e-mail us and let us know. We recommend framing and matting after you receive your order, just in case.
Our prints are always archival. We use 8 and 10-color ink printers with 100% archival inks, papers, and packaging.
Open Edition vs. Limited Edition
I stopped producing limited edition paper prints in 2013. All paintings produced since then are open edition, meaning they aren’t numbered or limited. I sign each print, though! Prints ordered after February 20th, 2014 are no longer numbered, but are still signed.
8×10 prints may be on either matte or glossy paper. We are slowly transitioning to glossy. If it’s very important to you, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your request. Large prints are on satin or luster paper (textured semi-gloss).
