Learn About Prints
Let’s make it easy. Here is all you need to know about prints from Mansfield Photography.
Overview of Prints
If you’ve been shopping for your business or home, you’ve probably discovered the easiest decision in the process is choosing the composition you like. Now that you are at the point of deciding ‘how’ you would like to print your image, this page should help you learn about the printing options available at Mansfield Photography. And as always, contact me if you have any questions that need to be answered.
For my Texas Landscape Photography, I offer Fine Art, Framed, Metal, Acrylic, and Wood Prints.
Prints are offered either “Ready-to-Hang” or “Loose” (where customer supplies mat/frame).
Print size options range from 4×6 to as big as 40×60, with sizes in between. If you are looking for a size not offered on the website, particularly sizes beyond 40×60, please contact me as they need special handling.
My Personal Print Preferences
There are many different mediums for Art Prints. I offer a few at Mansfield Photography, with my focus here to write about 1) Fine Art Paper (loose or framed), 2) Metal Prints, and 3) Acrylic Prints.
When it comes to Fine Are Paper, all are good choices. You really can’t go wrong! However, I have some personal preferences based on my experience. By default, I gravitate to a matte (no gloss) type of finish. Most images with earth tones, darker tones, black and whites, etc., I will use a matte type of paper. But there are times where I will gravitate towards a luster or gloss type of finish. When an image is strong in pastels or strong in bright colors (like flowers) I will generally use a luster of glossy type of Fine Art Paper.
If I am looking to make a Metal or Acrylic Print, any style works well. By default, these two mediums will display the art with more of a glossy sheen. Every image I have printed has looked terrific on these mediums. For Metal Prints, I usually choose the “White Base” over the “Clear Base”. For Acrylic Prints, there is only 1 option, so that’s an easy choice.
These are my preferences; you may find you have different preferences for your prints. But I hope this gives you a good starting point while you consider what medium you will use for your print. For more detailed information on the different types of prints, keep reading below.
