About you

We need to collaborate to produce a quality print that you are happy with. You will have a vision for your print, and you need to convey this vision to us. We will listen carefully to what you want. If you don't let us know, we will make our best judgment based on our skill and experience, but we can't read your mind.

About our products

Prints from some dye-based printers, poster printers, and many photo papers will begin to fade in under a year, especially if exposed to sunlight. At Indiana Artist Prints we use only acid-free archival materials. Our HP Vivera inks are pigment based. Our fine art paper is 100% cotton and does not contain optical brighteners. Our canvas is a cotton-polyester blend especially developed for giclée prints. Our MightyCore board is made from acid-free paper and an inert core. Our prints are predicted to last over 200 years without glass cover, and we offer a lifetime guarantee against fading.

The traditional frame/mat/glass mounting method is used to protect the print from UV light, airborne contaminants, and physical damage. With the development of digital giclée printers that spray pigment inks on archival papers and canvas, we no longer need the protection of glass cover. A protective coating stops the damaging UV light and allows easy cleaning. Indiana Artist Prints has grasped this opportunity to develop several new mounting methods. Without glass cover, your prints will show beautifully without reflections that are usually present from glass in standard home and office lighting. The Box mount, Gallery wrap, Floating mount, Metal frame, and Wood frame options have an elegant modern look that you will enjoy hanging in your living room.
