International Shipping: There are too many variables in customs protocols and obscure international venues to estimate shipping on the website. When you place your order, the shipping amount will be zero. Once we have your order, shipping will be calculated based on your address and we will contact you with the amount for payment. If the shipping cost is too high, you may cancel your order at that time.
We make every effort to reply the same day you place an order, by acknowledgement to your given email address and by initiation of the production sequence. Our target ship date is within one week of the order, and shipping to North American addresses usually takes two to five business days. Longer lags will be infrequent but clearly notified to you.
The rolled print will require mounting. Our latest substrate recommendation is 1/2 inch black Gatorfoam. We often provide help in identifying local mounting services with appropriate capability which are close to your venue.
Our typical product is on heavy matte paper mounted to flat Gatorfoam, trimmed flush to edge of graphic, and either hung raw with wall blocks or framed with a generous float within wood tones consistent with the subtlety of the piece. While some feel the dry mounting compromises the art, I know from experience that these large pieces need to be emphatically flat. I prefer to leave the print open (without plexiglass) to make it more visible on close examination.
Two points need explanation: the choice of size and the sometimes non-north orientation. A set of pixels behaves differently when enlarged, but it also matters how the pixels were built (for instance there is auto-correlation between adjacent SRTM values which allows more enlargement from a dpi standpoint). Every piece herein has a sweet spot of size where the neighborhoods open for easy examination, while the details remain crisp; this is designated the Standard size, and any smaller prints would be priced at this level. With respect to non-north designs it sometimes holds that they just look better sideways or upside down (do we walk down the street with our noses pointed north?). More often it is the illumination direction which dictates which side is up: as hunter-gatherers we still have a strong tendency to expect a sky illumination with shadows falling down. This minimizes the inversion of valleys and ridges.
