About Prints

 Limited edition Images are scanned from an original with an extremely high resolution professional camera. This digital technology is used to preserve the character of the artists original. The printing process uses costly, fade resistant, pigment based archival inks. They are printed on museum quality canvas or rag paper. The result is a high definition image that rivals the beauty of the original.

Kim Starr limited edition prints are sent to you rolled [not stretched] and shipped in a mailing tube. Prints on canvas are meant to be stretched on stretcher bars, then framed, just like an original oil painting. This service is offered by most good framers.
