Purchasing Fine Art Prints
Thanks so much for your interest in becoming a John Harrison Photography Fine Art collector! You can order prints directly off of the website if you know exactly what you want or you can contact me to discuss options as every image or framing options, such as HD Acrylic Crystal Images, are not available on the website. Contacting John Harrison Photography Contact me via email at: yosemite at jharrisonphoto.com or via phone at 408-940-6657.
You can also message me via Facebook or Instagram. I travel often so I apologize in advance for delays in getting back to you. A couple things to help ensure you have picked the perfect image.
What size image should I select for my home or office?
This absolutely depends on room, the space you have and where you will install the image. I have images that range from 12" x18" to 40" x 60" or larger! The most popular size images are: 24" x 36", 30" x 45" and 40" x 60". For 1:2 ratio panoramas the most popular sizes are 24" x 48", 30" x 60" or 36" x 72". To see other size options, please see the section below "Other Size Options"
What printing and framing options do you have for prints?
I offer a wide variety of print materials for every home, office or healthcare facility. The choices are:
The Finest Option - HD Acrylic Crystal Face Mounted Fine Art images
My collectors and I have selected the HD Acrylic Crystal Face Mounted Fine Art images as the most STUNNING way to display an image in your home or office! The end result is the colors are more vibrant, have amazing depth and the details are enhanced and the artwork is alive! It is like comparing regular TV to High Definition HDTV – hence the name –HD Acrylic Crystal Fine Art images! These images are normally framed as ready to hang floating (either 3/4" or 1.3" off of the wall) or can be framed with beautiful frames and linen liners.

Metal Dye Infused Prints
Metal Dye Infused prints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. My images take on a magical luminescence. Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking. Detail and resolution are unsurpassed.
Gallery-wrapped Giclée Canvas images
My Gallery-wrapped Giclée canvas images give a painterly look and are the most affordable option for printing almost any size image. For clients here in the San Francisco Bay Area, I print all of these myself on my 44" Fine Art Printer with the finest archival pigment print inks. The images are printed directly onto canvas. I mirror the edges so that the full image is on the face of the image. The print dries for a day and then I spray them with 3 coats of an archival UV clear coating, similar to polyurethane, that gives the UV protection, seals the print and brings out the contrast and vibrance to the print. This also seals the image to keep it very low maintenance so you can wipe them with a damp cloth if needed and the image is protected. After the print has dried, the print is stretched onto a 1.5" pine stretcher bar (or 2" for large prints). The image is ready to hang on wall and is super durable and lightweight.
Fine Art Wood Framed Prints
A number of collectors still prefer a traditional framed Fine Art print, mat and wooden frame. My standard option is variety of archival Fine Art papers (I love various luster print papers but Canson Platine Fiber Rag is one of my favorites and many print masters including Charlie Cramer!) I use an archival mat and a 1-1/4" real wood black frames. I do offer a variety of other mat and framing options as well. I pass along the wholesale framing pricing to ensure you are purchasing my Fine Art Print and not an expensive frame.
Fine Art High-Resolution Gigapixel Murals for Home and Corporate Artwork
I specialize in offering the largest Fine Art Gigapixel Mural images for Home, Corporate Offices or Healthcare Hospital Facilities. Stock photography websites never carry images with enough detail or wide enough (1:4 or wider) to produce high quality Fine Art Murals, which is why I now offer this service. My Gigapixel Fine Art Mural images can be seen at a number of Silicon Valley San Francisco Bay Area companies including Google, Cepheid, and many others. My smallest murals range in size from 6 feet (2 meters) x 9 feet (3 meters) to my largest installation here in Silicon Valley of San Francisco at Sunset during the SuperBowl at 88 feet (27 meters) x 12 feet (3.65 meters)!!!! this is a 1:8 ratio panorama. There is nothing better than seeing my images gigantic!! For many shots I focus on ultra-high resolution images wth multiple images creating a Gigapixel panorama. I will capture 6 to 200 high resolution images and combine them for hours on my computer system systematically stitching them and smoothing the images out for the ultimate high resolution panorama. Contact me directly for details and pricing. I offer turnkey packages including printing and installation here in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Finest Option - HD Acrylic Crystal Face Mounted Fine Art images
My collectors and I have selected the HD Acrylic Crystal Face Mounted Fine Art images as the most STUNNING way to display an image in your home or office! The end result is the colors are more vibrant, have amazing depth and the details are enhanced and the artwork is alive! It is like comparing regular TV to High Definition HDTV – hence the name –HD Acrylic Crystal Fine Art images! These images are normally framed as ready to hang floating (either 3/4" or 1.3" off of the wall) or can be framed with beautiful frames and linen liners. What are HD Acrylic Crystal Face Mounted Fine Art images images? HD Acrylic Crystal Face Mounted Fine Art images are created by taking a vibrant print and bonding it to the underside of a crystal clear sheet of ultra high quality UV coated acrylic. I searched across the US to find the highest quality Fine Art manufacturing center with the highest quality and production abilities that a discerning print master requires. This has to be done in a cleanroom type environment as a speck of dust ruins the entire print and has to be thrown out! Collectors continually remark that the images seem to be backlit on the wall capturing the archival pigments in the light. If you have been to Peter Lik or Rodney Lough galleries in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Hawaii or various Fine Art Museums, you have seen a similar face-mounted acrylic image. A couple notes are that good lighting is required to ensure your fine art investment is presented in the best possibly way. The HD Acrylic Images do have glare that can be challenging to control when you don't have the optimum lighting. For these instances I do offer a non-reflective option as well. Ultraclear Acrylic is standard at 1/8" but I do offer 1/4" and also True Vue Museum Acrylic. Framing HD Acrylic Crystal Face Mounted Fine Art images Some collectors prefer a traditional framed image with the HD Acrylic Crystal Face Mounted Fine Art images. I have a variety of premium but affordable wood framing options including a 4" Roma Moulding (Tabacchino is one favorite) together with a linen liner. I have sample images that I will be adding to the website to see exactly how these look. I pass along the wholesale framing pricing to ensure you are purchasing my Fine Art Print and not an expensive frame.

One tip I recommend is to take blue 3M painters tape and make a tape outline of the size you are considering on the wall. Want a larger image?! No problem! A also make Supersize Gigapixel Murals for home, corporate and healthcare installations ranging to my largest image which so far is 88 feet (27 meters) x 12 feet (3.65 meters)
Care and Cleaning of HD Acrylic Images
We use Acrylite plexiglass for our HD Acrylic prints. While it may be the best material in the industry it is not immune to scratching. We recommend you use either Brillianize or an eyeglass gleaner for resin lens' and a soft microfiber cloth. NEVER use any ammonia or alcohol based cleaner or paper towels. The recommended cleaners have a glossing agent in them that helps reduce dust and fingerprinting. Strong cleaners will statically charge the Acrylic and attract dust and need more cleanings.
