What Types of Printing is Available at John Whitehead Images

In my client galleries I have three main categories.  The first is Paper.  Paper is available in traditional color, silk paper, metallic, and true b and white paper.  Explanations of each of those papers are below.  Mounting options for prints are also available as an option.

The second are Canvas Gallery Wraps.  1.5 inch gallery wraps are printed on premium canvas and wrapped around a stretcher bar.  Gel (Smooth or Brush Stroke application); available with Classic Canvas only​.  This will help protect the surface of the print. 


Do not use chemicals, cleaners, or abrasive cloths

The last ​option are Standouts. The image to the right is a standout. E-Surface, Metallic or True B&W photographic paper, prints are mounted on a sturdy 1.0” thick board with white MDF backing, wood textured edging and your choice of black, white or maple trim.​  Standouts are also available with a Lustre protective coating.
