Prints and products are Made Upon Request as Custom Orders unless otherwise noted. All prints are produced with hand written or digitally written artist signature.
Fine Art Prints are produced on archival quality 11 mil Satin or 100% Rag Fine Art paper, with the option of matting and framing at professional gallery standards. For framed prints, Conservation Clear glass helps control glare while providing UV resistance to help ensure the longevity of your print. Framed prints are professionally finished with sealed backs and hanging wire. Cate’s go-to framing aesthetic involves a white matte and white frame presentation, which gives extra presence and breathing room for her colorful seascapes. For customers outside of the United States, we advise purchasing a print only and finding a local framer to help finish your artwork! All artwork is insured for shipment, but plexiglass can be substituted to help avoid shipping damage.
Canvas prints are produced with gallery wrapped images on thick 1.5" deep deluxe canvas. Our process involves inks that are heat cured at 212 degrees to ensure increased longevity and durability, with consistent color reproduction and finish. Canvases are wrapped on FSC Certified Wood Stretch Bars, and finished with hardware making them ready for hanging. Canvas prints have subtle texture and an increased image presence, providing a unique viewing experience compared to traditional framed prints. For best presentation, pair with a floater frame for a perfect statement piece!
Metal prints involve a dye sublimation process by which the image is printed onto transfer paper and adhered to a sheet of aluminum. Both aluminum and the transfer paper is heat pressed at temperatures exceeding 380 degrees, and which point the dyes from the transfer paper are pressed into the surface of the metal. As the dyes cool they are permanently infused beneath the surface of the aluminum, making metal prints uniquely resistant to sun, water, and humidity compared to traditional prints and canvases. Standard presentation for metal involves a floating wall mount where metal prints appear to hover off the wall, with an optional presentation of a floater frame.
Limited Editions are produced for a predetermined number of printings as determined by the artist. All Limited Editions are printed to professional fine art standards, include an artist signature, and have been numbered according to their edition. These special images are only available for a specific number of editions and therefore have a limited availability.
