Artful Christmas Gifts Gift and Decor ideas from Edward M. Fielding

Great gift ideas - tote bags, throw pillows, weekender bags, greeting cards and stunning decor ideas including canvas, acrylic, metal, traditional paper matted and framed art plus the new wood prints!

So many options and framing choices or no frame! Wooden, metal, canvas, acrylic prints don't need frames.

New! Wood Prints!

Wood prints are the newest crazy in home decor. Printed on actual white birch plywood, wood prints use the natural wood grain to add texture to the image and provides a unique one of a kind print! White ink is not used so the wood becomes the white creating a more muted, low key, low contrast image that darkens slightly with age. Great for vintage image!

This vintage map looks fantastic on wood!

Metal Prints

Metal prints add a lot of pop to an image. Great for sharp, high contrast, saturated color photography. The more light that hits the print the more "3D" the image looks. The image pops off the frame. No need to frame metal prints as they come with a floater on the back that creates a one inch space between the wall and the metal print. Metal prints are great for wet location and even outside under a bit of protection.

There are four primary benefits to imaging onto metal:

1. The colors are extraordinarily vibrant and the depth of the coating gives photos a luminous quality that no paper print can achieve.

2. Because the image is infused into and not onto the special coating, the prints have an archival value and durability without the need for a protective glass. In fact, Magna Chrome prints are not only scratch-resistant, they are also waterproof. This makes them ideal for hanging in bathrooms, kitchens and other areas where paper prints would be susceptible to water damage. Displaying without glass has several advantages: viewing images is more intimate; there is no possibility of breaking the glass during shipment or while on display; glare is reduced.

3. The rigidity of the metal plates allows for several unique and contemporary hanging methods that would be impossible with a paper print.

4. Economy: A conventionally framed print with matting, frame and protective glass will cost over twice the price of a similarly sized metal print.

Acrylic Prints

If you have the budget for acrylic it’s well worth the extra cash and you will not be disappointed. Acrylic photo mounting provide that unique wow factor. In corporate settings, acrylic prints will provide a higher end, more professional look. First impressions are everything and acrylic will make a statement. There is a reason that many are calling acrylic mounts the next big thing in photo displays (actually it’s been around for a long time, but far from the mainstream). For families if you have a modern decor. the budget and/or a feature spot in the house, then acrylic is also a great option for you. The canvas print as still looks nice and is much more budget friendly for families that want to stretch the art budget a bit farther.

Note: If you've been to a Peter Lik gallery, you've see the eye popping colors that are available via acrylic printing.

Canvas Prints

Canvas prints have been around the longest (after traditional paper prints) and offer a more traditional look are often less expensive. Canvas prints can be hung as is or a frame can be added for a more finished look.

Tote bags, t-shirts, cell phone cases, throw pillows and more!

A wide variety of gift and decor items are also available for purchase with any of the images in this portfolio of over 5,000 images!
