Framing and mounting the prints

Rob Cater inspects my mounted images in his workshop in Kilbrittain, Co. Cork for Haydn’s Gallery in Kinsale. Haydn blogged about me and Ryan this morning. Our prints are now hanging in the gallery!

They are 58x43cm prints, are mounted on a raised plinth with a deep frame and all images are signed by the artist. That’s what I was doing in Rob’s workshop on Monday!

Haydn went to extra ordinary lengths to have these images printed to the highest standards. As he puts it himself,

An additional problem is I wanted to print at a very high standard. Courtesy of Hewlett Packard I eventually got to use their z3100 and z 6100 machines which print with 12 and 8 inks respectively. I also wanted to use heavy durable paper and Vivera inks which have a no-fade lifespan exceeding 150 years.

Haydn, it was worth the extra effort. The prints are gorgeous!

Has it been 2 years already Ryan? My Flickr account expires in February 2008 so I have a bit more time on my hands. It’s been well worth it however!
