Prints - Andres Amador Arts


*A note on prints*
I have narrowed the printing options to those I think work best with my work, but there are still many choices, and choosing the right one can be confusing. Here are my thoughts on the possibilities available to you so you can make the best choice for your situation.

Lustre Paper: This paper has a satiny quality, minimizing glare. Going this route requires mounting, matte, and framing. Best for situations in which you already have a frame or would prefer a 'traditional' framed print look.

Metallic Paper:  This print paper gives a dynamic aspect and a depth to the image, causing shifts in light as you move around the image. I find it very cool,  but this is a personal preference choice. Going this route requires mounting, matteing, and framing. Best for situations in which you already have a frame or desire a framed print look.

Canvas: This method  prints directly onto stretched canvas. The canvas imparts a slight texture  to the image, giving it a feeling of a painting. This comes ready to hang (rth), no frame,  mounting, or matte necessary. This is the cheapest of the frame-less prints.

ThinWrap:  Available in both lustre and metallic paper, this print comes ready to hang without the need for a frame, mounting, or matte. This is my current favorite method of printing. 

Metal: The latest printing method and all the craze, this method prints directly onto an aluminum sheet and comes ready to hang. It is highly durable and can be cleaned with a wet rag. This is the thinnest of all print methods and gives the feel of the image floating off the wall. Quite striking.
