Platinum/Palladium Fine Art Printmaking

Platinum printing is a contact print process, which means I first make a large format digital negative the same size as the desired print. I can photograph your art for reproduction if needed as well.  We keep a full service shop, with everything done in-house and under my direct control and supervision.

I create digital negatives rivaling the sharpness, tonal range, and smooth shadow/highlight separation exceeding that  found in even Ansel Adams view camera negatives. My process achieves a degree of control never possible using traditional analog negatives. My process produces excellent results from every media source, including digital camera files, computer art files, or film negatives.  No promises before seeing your actual source image, but enlargements and reductions are  usually possible to create from your original source material, within reason.

All print sizes are subject to having sufficient resolution in your original file.  A signed printer’s proof IS NOT REQUIRED for  limited edition jobs, since hand coated paper makes each print unique anyway. I keep the Digital Negatives for further prints in an edition and/or for potential replacement of lost or damaged prints already sold to your clients.

Printer’s “chop” as seal of authenticity applied on border of the print, or to the reverse as I do with my own, additional $10 per print upon request.
