ABOUT THE BARNES FOUNDATION CUSTOM PRINT SHOP
The program is designed to allow a wide range of images from The Barnes Foundation to be available to the public as top quality print reproductions. Our collaboration with technology and print specialists allows us a number of customer conveniences, such as being able to pick from a menu of options including print size, a choice of paper or canvas, and a range of framing styles. The prints can be a reference, a keepsake, a gift, or wall decor for your home or office. All the printing and optional framing is done in the USA with orders custom-produced and shipped for delivery in two weeks. Because everything is made to order, sales are final and non-returnable.

The products in our Custom Print Shop are only available from The Barnes Foundation. Though you may see some of our images being sold elsewhere through commercial websites they will not be of the same quality.

ABOUT THE PRODUCTS
PRINTS ON PAPER:

Printed with archival quality pigment inks on high-resolution, large format 12-color printers, the substrate is an acid-free and lignin-free 230gsm coated fine art paper. The bright white base color and smooth matte finish allows for the highest quality reproduction possible. When framed, a three inch double mat is also included with a 4-ply buffered matboard in a natural white color. Glazing is in high quality acrylic for safety in shipping.


PRINTS ON CANVAS:

All canvas prints are hand-stretched over wood stretcher bars and are ready to hang whether framed or unframed. The wood bars are cut and assembled so the image occupies the entirety of the front plane of the stretched canvas with no cropping and in the native proportions of the image. When the canvas print is selected unframed, the stretcher has a deeper, 1 ½ inch profile with the side edges colored similarly to the fabric-covered walls in the Barnes galleries. The side edges are hidden when the canvas is framed. The base color of the canvas is bright white to ensure vibrancy and accuracy in the reproduction of colors. Printed with archival quality pigment inks on high-resolution, large format 12-color printers, the heavy, 350 gsm, acid-free, cotton canvas has a tight, natural weave. A semi-matte UV coating is applied after printing both for protection and to enhance the depth and richness of the image.
