Spring Prints Sale: 8″x12″ and 8″x10″ Prints Sale

UPDATE: The spring prints sale concluded on May 31, 2009. The unsold prints (see below) are still available for sale, but the prices for these prints are yet to be determined.

It’s been a while since I’ve had a print sale, so it’s about time for another one.

I’ve been thinking for a while what my latest prints sale should entail, and I have decided that it will revolve around selling prints which I already own. You see, over the last two years or so, my prints collection has been steadily increasing. A lot of the prints have been framed, but most of the prints reside in a folder. When I travel, I bring along these prints as a showcase of my work. So, these prints are looking for a good home. Following is a brief Q&A regarding this sale.

Q: What is this sale/promotion all about?
A: The sale is for 8″x12″ and 8″x10″ prints which I own. All of the images may be found on my photoblog, Erudite Expressions.

Q: What kind of prints are they?
A: The prints were printed at a professional printing lab, Mpix. Most of the prints have a metallic finish; as I mentioned before, I think the metallic finish is amazing. There are a few prints in this sale which have a matte (non-metallic finish).

Q: I thought you didn’t offer 8″x10″ prints on your photoblog?
A: Yes, that is correct. Normally, an 8″x10″ print is not offered because it would require cropping from the standard 3×2 format in which I post the majority of my images. However, in order to frame some of the 8″x12″ prints I own, I’ve been searching for 8″x12″ frames for a long time. I shopped at Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, Wal-Mart, and a few other stores searching for 8″x12″ frames, but in all of my searching, I’ve only found this one store in Pasadena, CA that carried 8″x12″ frames. So, even though most of the photos presented on my photoblog are in a 3×2 format (which would correspond to a 12″x8″ print), for a lot of the prints, I cropped the photos so that they are in a 5×4 format and can thus fit in a standard 8″x10″ frame. So I have more than fifty 8″x10″ prints which I custom-cropped, and these prints are part of the sale.

Q: Which prints are available for sale?
A: Scroll down to see which images are available.

Q: What’s the process for ordering one print?
A: If you want to order one image, please find the link to the image (each image below is hyperlinked to the respective photoblog entry) and select “purchase a print” at the bottom of the post. Payment is done via Paypal, as it is easy and secure (note: you don’t need to own a Paypal account to order; all that is required is a valid credit card).

Q: What’s the process for ordering more than one print?
A: If you want to order more than one print, I ask that you follow the procedure above (but select the appropriate option for how many prints you want to order). Then, please e-mail me at elbelbelb2000[at]gmail[dot]com which (other) images you want to receive. Alternatively, you can just email me the prints you want to order and send me the appropriate funds via Paypal to my address, elbelbelb2000[at]gmail[dot]com.

Q: How will I know which prints are still available?
A: Since this is a first-come, first-serve promotion, I will keep a close watch to my e-mail inbox. As soon as an order is through, I will cross out those images which are no longer available. If you scroll down below, you’ll notice that one of the images is no longer for sale.

Q: Can I combine multiple orders?
A: Sure, you can order a mix of 8″x10″ and 8″x12″ prints if you wish.

Q: But what about…
A: If there is anything I didn’t cover, please send me an email.

Q: So which images are for sale as prints?
A: The following is the list of images (linked to the respective photoblog entry in which the image appears). An asterisk (*) next to the image title represents an image which has a matte rather than a metallic finish.

Review: Gallery Canvas Print from ZaZa Gallery

I recently received an 8″x10″ canvas print from ZaZa Gallery, a small company owned by Hugh Parker and his wife. The husband and wife team started out as an art company, but have since focused on creating canvas prints for customers. I received a complimentary 8″x10″ print of one of my images, Overlook in Mijas, which may be found on my photoblog here. In return, I’ve agreed to write a review of the canvas print which follows below.
