Placing an Order
I provide a custom order service for Byron Harmon prints ordered through this website. Price lists are provided for each portfolio Please allow 2 to weeks for delivery unless I have indicated otherwise
Using the Order Contact Form
You may prefer to talk to me directly about your order. The Order Contact Form button appears in several places in this website. Click it to send me the details of your inquiry.
All prints are made to exhibition standards on archival fine art rag papers using Ultrachrome K3 inks with an Epson 9800 printer. I print on matte paper for a look which is similar to Byron Harmon’s original prints. The tested archival life of the papers I choose to print on is 100 years or longer. I can provide either neutral black-and-white prints or warm toned prints similar to the historic chestnut brown Van Dyck colouring which Byron also printed in. I generally print images with a lot of snow and ice in neutral tones and other images in warm tones but any image may be printed either way so please indicate your preference.
I sign each print in pencil with the title and date of the image, “Byron Harmon, photographer”, and “printed by Carole Harmon” with the date. This appears below the bottom edge of the print and may be matted out or a matt cut to reveal the signature line.
Smaller prints are shipped flat and larger prints are shipped rolled. The prints are well packaged to ensure their safe arrival but should the unlikely occur and a print be damaged in shipping I will provide a replacement at no additional cost. I generally ship by Canada Post Expedited or Express mail so that tracking information is available for all shipments.
Matting and Framing
I no longer offer a matting or framing service but can offer the following recommendations. Prints should be matted and framed with archival materials. This will greatly prolong the life of your print. I have never used non glare glass which reduces the clarity and detail of the print but conservation glass will accomplish much the same thing while also protecting the photograph from UV radiation. Large prints can be mounted on archival substrates such as Dibond, a material which uses a thin sheet of aluminum sandwiched between archival paper. The surface is then protected with a coating and framed. This presentation is much lighter than framing large prints with glass and may also be more economical. Good professional framers will be able to advise on this. Please do not hang your print in an area which receives direct sunlight.
The moulding I have traditionally used with the Byron Harmon images is from the Roma Moulding Burlwood Collection. This is a wood veneer frame, very strong and resistant to damage. The profile I have used is 1 5/8” x 1/2” deep Walnut Burlwood.
I hope you enjoy your Byron Harmon print for many years to come.
