AVAILABLE PRINTS

UPDATE 08/19/2017: WILL HAVE NEW ARTWORK AVAILABLE FOR PRINTS IN THE COMING TWO WEEKS. CHECK BACK OFTEN TO SEE NEW PRINTS THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE!

All prints offered for purchase are printed using a method known as piezography.  I use the finest papers available that exceed industry standards for museum grade archival quality and preservation. In other words; my prints are made to last multiple generations and demonstrate the minutest of fading even after decades of display and normal light exposure (100 plus years).

Papers used for printing are: JonCone Studio Type2, 310 gsm; Hahnemühle Photo Rag, 308 gsm; Hahnemühle Museum Etching, 350 gsm; and Hahnemühle Bamboo, 290 gsm

To understand why I chose piezography over the standard method of printing, here is an excerpt for your perusal: “The system utilizes up to seven shades of carbon grayscale inks driven by special software in an Epson printer. The tone of the image is determined by the ink set installed in the printer. Available ink sets range from selenium, neutral, warm neutral to carbon/sepia. This is a radical departure from most print studios where black and white prints are produced using the standard K3 system which relies on color inks and heavy dithering algorithms to achieve the illusion of a full range of grayscale tones.

Piezography bypasses the Epson printer driver, instead utilizing specialized RIP software and custom profiles created specifically for each ink, paper and printer combination. The end result is a true continuous tone image with smoother tonal range, greater detail and overall, unmatched print quality.

Piezography inks are 100% pure carbon pigment, offering great image permanence and historical longevity. The Piezography Carbon ink set is by far the most fade resistant ink tested by the Aardenburg Imaging & Archives. If image permanence is your primariy concern, this is the ink for you.”

If you wish to order one or multiple prints, I have outlined below the manner in which I am going to transact business until I can get an official website up and running.

  1. Send an email to: markthimesch@gmail.com – detailing what prints you wish to purchase, the quantity, and their appropriate size(s).
  2. I’ll offer you several ways to pay: (a) I’ll send you a PAYPAL invoice via email (you don’t have to be a member) where you can pay electronically over the internet or wireless device with your credit/debit card or paypal account.  I won’t be able to see your credit card details, so no worry there. Or, (b) I’ll give you a mailing address where you can send a personal check (must clear bank before delivery – 5 day holding period) – whatever is most comfortable with you. Or, (c) If you live locally and wish to pay in cash, I can arrange for that. Locals will still be responsible for any incurred shipping costs.
  3. Customers will be responsible for shipping costs based upon their choice of shipping. I generally prefer to ship Priority Mail because it includes a flat insurance coverage.  All Limited Edition Prints will be mailed Priority Mail with additional insurance to cover the full value of the print.  I will ship internationally but cannot guarantee the condition your prints will arrive due to geopolitical, your nation’s customs and jurisdictional issues.

All monetary transactions are in U.S. dollars. All sizes are expressed in Standard inches. If you wish to understand how I derived the prices for my prints, I suggest you visit the CONTACT/FAQ tab and scroll down to the last question.
