These images are printed on aluminum using a dye-sub process. The inks actually penetrate the surface making a more stable product. The aluminum panel is then float mounted so the images stands off the wall about an inch or so.
We chose this process to accentuate the sculptural nature of the sandcastles and so they can be placed in humid environments without the problems that come with paper products.
As with all printed works they should be kept out of direct sunlight. The prints arrive mounted and ready to hang. All you have to do is choose an image, a size and a finish. (gloss or satin).
And, shipping is free within the continental U.S.
