Gallery float finishing

Most of the finished pieces I offer online or at my shows are “gallery float” wood-mounted images. This treatment is fast replacing traditional framing.

Here’s how it works:

A print is made on archival photo paper and then laminated onto wood with a thin UV-protective and anti-glare coating.  This protective barrier allows the photo to be wiped off with a dry or lightly damp rag.  The piece is finished with a thin black edging and features backing that makes the image appear to “float” off the wall about an inch.

This is a durable and economical alternative to traditional mat-and-glass framing.  There is no glass to break and no glare. There are no agonizing decisions to be made on mat and frame color.  It’s all about the image, which stands out nicely on your wall.


Any print on my site can be ordered in a variety of sizes as a wood-mounted finished piece.

If you don't see the size you want when ordering from my site, please email or call me and I'll accommodate you.

Thanks again for looking at my photography.
