Products & Services

 

 All our prints are printed using Epson quality products. This includes the printer, canvas, paper and ink. We expect the best and so do you.

 

At this time we do not take photographs to make prints of your paintings. We can however point you in the right direction to have this done. If you have a painting that is 8.5 x 11" or smaller, we can scan/print it for you.

We can mount your unwrapped canvas art and needle point projects as well. Bring your work with you and lets talk. It's always better to be here and see the frames in person.

Canvas prints: We can gallery wrap and frame your print or simply print it for you if you want to wrap it yourself. Unless you really know what you are doing, we suggest you let us mount the canvas for you or have someone that you trust do this.

Canvas Mounting: Using our top of the line stretcher bars, we are able to custom size stretcher bars and mount them for you. Several customers have brought paintings and other similar art to have us mount the art for them.

Wide Format: We print up to 44" high on both canvas and photo paper.

Stretcher bars: These are required for your canvas prints and can be ordered separately if this is all you need and come in custom sizes.

Mounting Hardware: In order to display your art on you wall, you will need either mounting hooks, mounting tabs or wire. We have all this available at a very minimal cost and can install them for you as well.

Varnish: Use this to help protect your canvas prints. This is only an extra $5.00 and well worth the protection.

Frames: Frames can be used not only for photographs but also for your canvas prints, posters, dry mounts and much more. We have over 400 styles and sizes to choose from.

Matting: If you want to create a colorful border around your photograph inside the frame, this is the way to do it. These are custom cut to your specifications and there is a multitude of colors to choose from as well as several different textures. It is in your best interest to come to the gallery and look at the mattes in person as seeing it first hand is always the best choice as there are so many choices and combinations.

Glass: There are different types of glass you might want or need depending on where your art is being displayed. If it is in direct sunlight for any length of time then it is suggested that you use a UV protective glass. If you don't want to see a reflection in your glass, then there is non-reflective glass available for just that purpose. Then of course there is just your regular glass.

Photographs: Although we mostly print wide format prints (up to 44" inches), we can also print your smaller photos as well. We use all Epson products for high quality prints. Glossy, low luster and matte finish paper.

Posters: If you have a digital poster already created and just want it printed, we are more than capable of doing this for you. If you need a poster created then contact us and we'll set up a meeting and get you what you want.

Dry Mount: What is a dry mount? Dry Mounting is the process of affixing artwork to foam board or some other flat, firm substrate by applying a uniform coat of adhesive between the art and the substrate, and then applying firm, uniform pressure to create adhesion. The Benefit of Dry Mounting is that it provides a uniform coat of adhesive to cover the back of artwork for a flat, firm mount with no danger of the artwork buckling or slumping in the frame package.Dry Mounting Tissues carry the adhesive.  When a dry mounting tissue is placed between the art and the substrate and heat is applied, the adhesive melts creating a bond.  Instructions that come with the tissues will tell you how much heat and time is necessary for the application.

Digital Image Repair/Enhancements: If your image isn't quite the way you like it, let's talk. In most cases this can be a quick adjustment, but there are other circumstances that may require some time to fix. This all depends on the quality of your image as well. As the old saying goes, "You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig". If the image is truly that bad, we will tell you straight up whether we can do anything with it or not.

Art Repairs: Unless it is a simple fix to a frame, matte, glass etc, we will not be able to repair your art. However, we do have contacts that we can refer you to.

Digital Scanning: Negatives and slides can be scanned. Photographs and documents can be done, but please call 780-352-6092 or email us for pricing details. Please refer to our pricing page for this service.

Artwork Commission: Upon agreement between the Gallery and you, as the artist, we will display your art in the most favorable way possible. Arts include water colors, acrylic, ink, pencil, ceramics, wood, metal and more. You provide the pricing as we will not tell you what your art is worth. We fully expect that you have done your homework on this and know what you want. Please contact the Gallery for exact details.

Photography Studio Rental: Our studio is a modest 12'x14' space that is a good size for portraits. Bring your family, friends, cat, dog, etc. you get the idea. We do have limited backdrops and also have studio lighting available. Be your own photographer or bring your own photographer, it's your choice. You will need to supply your own camera.

Newborn photography is available with Tara Sundberg at Sundberg Studios.
