This high quality archival print or heirloom canvas is reproduced from high resolution files of the original prints, with repairs being made to the apperance, but still keeping the picture as original as possible. We do try to get the colors back to their original brightness and take the yellow aging, spots and tears out of the paper. Printed with the latest Canon IPF8300 printer on expensive Hahnemuhle fine art Rag 308 paper or Daguerre canvas. A fine heirloom print that with proper care, will last for several generations without fading, not to be confused with the mass factory produced cheap imitations. Our canvas prints are stretched with the Hahnemuhle gallery wrap system, this is the new way of wrapping canvas prints. With the Gallerie Wrap system, the actual image or border color is stretched over the edge, allowing you to hang the canvas as it is, without buying a frame to cover up the edges. All of our canvas prints are also spray protected, giving them even more longetivity. So when your canvas arrives all you have to do is hang it on the wall and enjoy it for years to come. Please allow 7 days for delivery of your print and up to 10 days for a canvas. In order to keep costs as low as possible, we print most of our orders as we recieve them. Please keep in mind that our prints look much better than the low resolution files shown on the listings and of course, the Long Mountain Print Shop will not be on your picture.
