Photos of actual print wraps of C Ribet artwork will be posted shortly.

These are product photographs from the print producer. Gallery wrapped print wraps present artwork in a 'ready to hang' format where no framing or mounting hardware is required. The image is printed on your selection of photographic papers (with optional coatings) and then is wrapped in a tradtional gallery wrap style around a backer board to which is then applied a stand-off mounting platform which has holes drilled for hanging and serves to position the printed image away from the wall on which it is hung.

This is a gallery quality mounting method and is extremely well done by the print house. I continue to be impressed with every product from this company and do not hesitate to recommend them and have them printing my open editions. Their care for packaging is second to none as well. In any case, for this artwork display method the wrap quality is excellent and the stand-off mount is positioned over the wrap edges so there is no chance that an accident could cause the wrap to rise off the backer board.

These gallery wrapped prints are an excellent choice for any C Ribet image but (as well as the Gallery Standouts) are highly recommended when used in conjunction with Metallic Papers and C Ribet Dewscapes / Mizzlescapes.

The surface of the Metallic Papers (particularly if a Lustre Coating is applied for extra UV protection and durability) is very very sturdy and does not need protection of glass and traditional framing. You save a tremendous amount of money over traditional framing and matting, and perhaps most importantly, you can avoid the expense and REFLECTIONS of glass or acrylic which goes with traditional framing and matting.

The costs for a UV protective AND scratch resistant AND non-glare glazing in traidtional framing are astronomical. If you have a delicate Fine Art print, you need this protection from physical abrasion - and you can't 'clean' the print itself readily if anything should contaminate the Fine Art Paper surface. You can forget all of that with a gallery wrapped print wrap of Metallic Paper (or the E-surface paper). Once you are freed from a frame, you may never go back.
