About the Prints

 

I just hate to see someone spend $$$ only to have their rabbi fill in the text with a ballpoint pen.

One of the problems with mass market ketubot is that couples, rushed and under financial pressure, will often forego customization in order to get their ketubah quickly and to save money. But even when they decide to pay $80 to have their names added, it just doesn't look as good as if the names had been filled in from the start.

This is why I have an opt-out system for customization. Having it prepared to order is the way it should be although it is treated like an extra by the industry. Likewise, feel free to provide your custom text in English and pair it with one of my standard texts in Hebrew or provide your own Hebrew.

 

On Paper

A giclée print made with high-quality archival inks on fine art paper - heavy paper with a subtle texture - using a high-resolution large format inkjet printer. The premium inks produce images with smooth tones and rich colors, making these prints ideal for extraordinary presentations. Each one is coated with a matte layer to protect against UV damage.

On Canvas

A giclée print like the paper print, but printed directly onto museum quality canvas material usingthe same high quality archival inks. The canvas print is then wrapped around a stretcher frame so that the sides are a clean solid color and display ready without framing. The canvases are 3/4” deep.  A Lustre laminate is applied to each piece to protect the surface of the print and to provide UV Light protection. Delivered with paper backing and hanging hardware attached.

On Metal

The art is printed by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. They are waterproof and highly scratch resistant. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, your images have an unusual luminescence from the aluminum with a subtle back-lit look. Metal prints have a subtle matte finish with a brilliant and impressive color vibrance.

Images printed with the MetalPrints process will last for generations when displayed indoors and out of direct sunlight. Like any fine art print, MetalPrints should not be regularly exposed to direct sunlight or high outdoor temperatures. The archival value of a print should be judged not only by its resistance to degradation by U.V. light and ozone exposure, but also to moisture and surface damage. When these factors are brought into the equation, MetalPrints are an excellent way to preserve an image.
