My photographs are printed on only archival quality paper with archival quality inks. This means that the photos will last much longer than if they were printed on your average printer. The manufacturers report the life of their papers and inks in terms of years before they fade or yellow. I use only materials that will last over 50 years, and most over 80 years.
This means that you can enjoy your photographs for a long time. To ensure the longevity of your artwork, I only mat and frame the photographs using archival quality mounting techniques. This includes using only archival mats and backing board for both the unframed and framed photography offered through my website. The frames available through the website include UV protection glass as just one more measure to protect your investment.
