Recently I was printing out a bunch of photos to update pictures around our home. One of them I printed out to replace a photo we had been using in the same frame for the past five years — that pictures resides in our entry. The new picture seemed brighter, it looked better, and I liked it, so I thought it would be a nice change of pace form the black and white image that hung by our entry.
I made a snap decision to print the photo on water color paper, and when it was done I was blown away by how great it looks. The photo is now hanging in our entry way, and I stop and look at it every time I pass. I don’t really like this type of gloating, but this image — when printed — makes me exceedingly happy when I look at it. In fact quite a few visitors to our home have remarked on it, which bring us to this post.
I’d like to offer this image for sale as a limited edition print. I am offering two sizes printed and signed by me on water color paper (this paper) on my Canon PIXMA PRO 9500 mkII. The pricing and sizing is as follows:
- 12” x 18” image printed on a 13” x 19” piece of water color paper for $150, signed (on the back).
- 8” x 10” image printed on a 8.5” x 11” piece of water color paper for $50, signed (on the back). Note: because this size format does not fit the natural image aspect ratio, some cropping will occur.
The limited edition factor is not quantity based — though I will write the print number on each image with my signature — it’s limited edition because I will guarantee this will be the only time I offer this image for sale on water color paper. The water color paper gives this image a very lovely feel to it, less ‘printed photo’ and more art.
