'OPEN' AND 'LIMITED EDITION' PRINTS
Black and White together with colour prints are available in the majority of galleries which are 'Open Editions' meaning they have or may be sold many times.
Galleries which offer 'Limited Edition' prints are just that, limited to a specific number of print reproductions as stated in the definitions below, plus ine or two 'Artist Proofs'.
The Artist Proofs are used by me to finalise the tonality of the print – a little lighter here, a little darker there – until I am satisfied that the picture meets my expectation. The one or two Artist Proofs are only sold after the Edition Prints have been sold. Once all pictures have sold, no more will ever be produced.
New prints will be added to the gallery from time to time, but never more editions of the same print.
FUJI DPII PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINT
Fuji DPII paper is a C-Type (chromogenic) professional crystal archival silver halide paper with a light sheen to it. This is akin to traditional photo papers and produces clear black and white prints with exceptional sharpness.
Fine Art Hahnemhule Print
'Fine Art' is a little pretentious in my opinion, but as most artists use this term, so have I. This is a traditional term which heralds from the origins of photography, where photographic negatives were developed and printed individually by hand. All our prints are printed individually and are personally inspected and tonally balanced to produce a superb quality print. These fine art prints are produced onto one of the finest Hahnemhüle Fine Art Photo Pearl Premium lightly textured museum standard artist paper to ensure luminous colours and deep blacks for at least 100 years. These prints are produced with a 1cm or 2cm white border to ease mounting and framing. These pictures will have a printed 'Ian Badley' signature in the border and on request accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity
BLACK AND WHITE LIMITED EDITION PRINTS
Prints in this gallery are very Limited Editions. Only five editions of these black and white prints are only ever going produced: up to two artist proofs and only three final Editions. That is correct, only five. There will be no more of each picture produced. The three Limited Edition prints are available in two sizes printed as 50cm and 75cm prints for you to mount and frame or as a 100cm laminated Fuji DPII print mounted set onto a box frame ready to hang in your home of office. The one of two Artist Proof(s) will be produced at 50cm square. New prints will be added to the gallery from time to time, but never more editions of the same print.
Exclusive Collection Signed Limited Edition Prints
Exclusive Limited Edition fine art prints are selected by Ian to typify the essence of the moment of capture. As is usually the case, it’s all about the light, the action or serenity and that unique moment. The number of these prints available is strictly limited to just 10, plus 2 artist proof prints for each medium type and size of print. As the print edition nears the end of the run, prices rise due to their exclusivity. Once the edition has reached its limit, no further prints are made. These prints are available in two mediums, a traditional Lambda printed Fuji Crystal print or Hahnemühle photographic fine art print as described above. Each print is numbered with the edition, will have a printed 'Ian Badley' signature in the border and be accompanied by a signed Certificate of Authenticity which includes the original file number, the date and time to the second that the image was taken, together with details of the location and if applicable, the boat name and event.
Print under acrylic glass
Here is a modern contemporary way to display your print. Your chosen print will be printed onto Fuji Crystal DP11 paper, silicone sealed behind a 2mm brilliant acrylic glass and bonded to an aluminium backing with an integrated hanging system. The acrylic glass provides added UV protection as well as providing a wonderful presentation to your chosen print.
Premium framed prints
These are framed Fine Art individually toned images printed onto renowned Hahnemühle Pearl paper. Prints are dry mounted onto the backboard to avoid slippage and are double mounted to provide a physical keyline to the print. The frames dimensions and close ups are shown on the page, with other alternatives available on request. We have been selling these tried and tested pictures for many years, they are really beautiful products. The glazing on all our framed prints is a premium quality acrylic. It is more expensive than glass with many benefits including 97-100% reduction of UVB light filtering and significant impact resistance compared to glass. Should you prefer, the print may be made on Fuji Professional paper, more akin to a traditional photographic paper at a slightly reduced price. Please email for details.
Sizes shown are overall dimensions of the print for 'print only' or the frame for 'framed prints'.
How good is the image quality?
It’s good! The images are taken with high quality equipment and all prints are examined before despatch. Remember, I supply businesses, book publishers, magazines, newspapers etc with my images but above all that I have my reputation to consider. If I am not satisfied then it doesn’t go out – although I am human!
Please note that with the best will in the world, the image you see on your computer screen will never look exactly like the print you receive even though calibrated monitors and paper profiles are used to edit, process and produce the prints. This is due to a number of factors one of the main ones being your monitor is back lit whilst a print is front lit; monitors perform differently in different lighting etc. Despite this, we aim to produce an image as close to resembling what you see as possible.
I want to buy a print but the size I want is not listed?
No problem. EMAIL HERE with your requirements and I will respond with availability and price.
All prints are produced using materials to minimise the risk of fade giving a life expectancy in excess of 75 years. As with all paintings and prints, they should not be displayed in direct sunlight or artificial light, and away from any source of heat and humidity.
