ENHANCED MATTE PAPER
Speaking of MATTE, my base paper I print on is one of the best, basic matte papers Epson sells, named EPSON Enhanced Matte. It is a very solid and great fine art media. Flexible but still sturdy. If you want your art to look more like a charcoal or fine-art matte black feel and cost is a major concern, then this is the paper for you.

The metallic paper is the new EPSON Glossy Metallic and adds a more premium and better looking option for your art. This is NOT a printed solid sheet of brushed metal or foil, it is is still a photo paper. It is a high gloss with a silvery mirrored reflective surface. The metal is a heavier weight paper with an infused metallic "film" layer on the outside. So I would say the paper resembles a flexible thick film instead of a standard photo paper. The film adds a silvery luster to it, that’s why it is actually called “pearlescent” - like a very subtle inner oyster shell. The metal is a more premium option, hence the price increase. Generally it gives the colors and white/lighter areas a real strong “pop”. The darks/blacks are very dark and deep.
BE VERY CAREFUL HANDLING THIS PAPER it will dent and scratch very easily! I will not refund or accept returns for any damage you cause in removal and framing.

I now offer a very cool and unique way to show off your art, especially my paintings! EPSON Cold Press Textured Watercolor Matte is a super high premium fine art media. In fact it is true artist's watercolor paper, you could paint right on it! So therefore it adds a very awesome textured, hand-painted feel to my art. Highly recommended for my paintings!

Exhibition Signature Worthy™ Canvas White Matte is exactly what it says, my art printed on a real canvas fabric specially made for EPSON printing. You have 2 options for canvas prints - stretched over wood or a scroll. The stretched canvas is available in 8"x10" or 16"x20" sizes. Each stretched canvas is also glossy varnished, hand signed and has a metal tooth hanger on the back so it's ready to hang on the wall.
Canvas scrolls are a new and cool way to have larger pieces that look unique. Scrolls come in 18"x24" and for vertical designs I can also do 24"36" but for horizontal art I'm limited to 24"x18" size. Each scroll is hand made to order and take time - the wood is cut, sanded and walnut colored stained. Then the wood is glued pinching a varnished gloss canvas print in between. I include a jute rope loop on the top so you can hang the canvas from a nail or hook on your wall. I also hand sign each scroll bottom right corner.
