Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ
Limited Editions and Certificate of Authenticity
Why do we offer limited editions?
Due to the unique nature of Ariel's work, her techniques, and the extent that she travels to find earth's treasures, Her series of works are released and only printed on a limited number, and then the image will be retired. What does that mean for our collectors? Limited prints are an investment in your spaces, and we hope in your hearts.
What is a limited shared edition?
The shared number is across various available print and framed print sizes. This allows you, the collector, the opportunity to find photographs that fit into your world at the preferred art piece size while safeguarding your investment. As the limited editions sell out, prices may increase, and sizes become more limited.
Do you sign the work or provide a Certificate of Authenticity?
Certificates of Authenticity will be provided with all prints and framed prints purchased thru our store. For now, we print at fine art shows that due to the framing, signing the pieces is logistically difficult, and shipping would prohibit this, so we send a digitally numbered and signed COA with all pieces purchased.
Fine Art Printing:
What type of paper is available?
I hand-pick from professional-grade archival paper for increased color gamut, excellent skin tones, sharpness, and brilliant image quality. I select a specific fine art paper for each series that matches the work's tones, textures, and style. I have tested to allow the print to be of the highest quality.
Fine Art Papers
Fine art prints have a matte appearance, excellent image sharpness, and optimal color density and gradation. These fine art papers' thickness and surface texture provide both substance and beauty.
Some Papers we use are:
Kodak Endura Professional Lustre Paper
Fuji Crystal Archival Professional Deep Matte Paper.
Is the paper archival?
Fine art papers are acid-free, pH-neutral, and made from pure cellulose. They’re inkjet printed with archival pigment inks that significantly enhance the visual brilliance of both color and black & white images. These inks also have a substantial longevity that keeps your artwork beautiful for generations. The highest quality archival prints have a longevity of 100 years in typical display conditions and 200 years in dark storage.
Do you offer framing for the prints?
We have selected the best framing for each series if you want to purchase ready-to-hang artwork.
We partner with a Professional company that allows us to offer you artwork that is ready to hang and can be shipped directly to your home. From single prints, you can have framed to ready-to-hang art pieces for you to cherish for years.
Please note, That I am currently evaluating some new printing techniques, papers, and framing options that I hope will bring the highest level of beauty to my work and be of the highest quality artistry. Thank you for being so patient as we grow. - Ariel
