Overview of Prints – Learn About Fine Art Prints

If you’ve been in search of wall art for your business or home, you’ve likely found that the most straightforward part of the process is selecting the composition that appeals to you. Now that you’ve reached the stage of determining how you’d like to bring your chosen image to life, this page is here to provide you with insights into the printing options offered by Mansfield Photography.

In our Texas Landscape Photography collection, we provide a range of choices, including Fine Art Prints, Framed Prints, Metal Prints, Acrylic Prints, and Wood Prints. You can opt for prints that come “Ready-to-Hang” or choose the “Loose” option, where you can supply your own mat and frame if preferred.

Print Sizes

Print size options range from 4×6 to as big as 40×60, with sizes in between. If you are looking for a size not offered on the website, particularly sizes beyond 40×60, please contact us as they need special handling.

Our Print Preferences

At Mansfield Photography, we offer a variety of mediums for Art Prints, and in this discussion, we’ll focus on three options: Fine Art Paper (available in loose or framed formats), Metal Prints, and Acrylic Prints.

When it comes to Fine Art Paper, all choices are excellent, and you can’t really make a wrong selection. However, our recommendations are based on our experience. By default, we lean towards a matte finish, avoiding gloss. We typically opt for matte paper for images featuring earth tones, darker shades, black and whites, and similar aesthetics. On the other hand, when an image boasts vibrant pastels or bold, bright colors, such as floral compositions, we tend to prefer a luster or glossy Fine Art Paper finish.

For Metal and Acrylic Prints, any style works beautifully. Generally, these mediums exhibit a glossy sheen by default. We usually opt for the “White Base” option for Metal Prints over the “Clear Base.” As for Acrylic Prints, there is only one available choice, making it a straightforward decision.

Remember that these are our preferences, and your personal preferences may differ. Our goal is to provide you with a helpful starting point as you contemplate which medium suits your print best. For more in-depth information on the various types of prints, please continue reading below.

And, as always, feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions that require answers.
