_ the print comes with a white border of about 1,5 cm on each side, which allows for proper handling and facilitates matting and framing; the size mentioned above is a net size that does not include this border;
_ a hinged matt is made of a white Daler-Rowney mountboard (back) and a white Canson Ingres Vidalon matt (front) with a white core; both boards are acid-free, and conform to the ISO 9706 standard for permanence; the print is mounted with a T-hinge using archival Abaca Hinging Tape, which is used for the hinge as well;
_ price includes VAT, but does not include postage, packaging, or framing;
_ prints on archival fine art papers up until 58 by 87 cm are printed by myself on a Canon ImageProGraf Pro 2100 printer, using archival Canon Lucia Pro ink;
_ Diasec TruLife framing is outsourced, as this is a specialised and proprietary framing method;
_ prints are always made on demand; as such a purchase cannot be cancelled once the print has been produced, or in the case of Diasec TruLife framing, once I've placed the order
_ disclaimer: as part of the printing process, and to ensure my personal quality standards are met, two AP/PP prints are produced: one on an A4, and one in the format at which the print is advertised above; the larger size print is typically used for exhibiting, unless an HC print was made specifically for that purpose; the smaller one can be part of my paper portfolio.

At first, I felt that only a smooth matt cotton paper did the scene justice. It complemented the soft pastel tones and smooth gradients of the image extremely well, so I initially went for Canson Infinity Rag Photographique 310 gsm as my paper stock of choice for this print. As I made a consequent test print on Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag, I changed my mind however: the slightly deeper shadows and saturation, as a result of both the change in paper and a tiny increase in contrast to the image file, were able to bring across that hint of menace, embodied by the fog, in a way the matt paper couldn't. As I chose to convey my exact impression of standing there, I went for the Platine.
