Iceland- Iceland is a uniquely beautiful place. One of the most memorable experiences we had on our short trip there, was meeting a man named Hörður, who also went by “Mr. Iceland”. He is one of the few farmers in the country, and the only farmer in Iceland growing garlic. The harsh weather creates pretty unideal growing conditions for crops, and because of this almost all of Icelands fresh food is imported. The fierce cold and wind slow the growing season considerably, creating an environment where garlic takes up to 12 months to ripen. This long ripening period creates especially strongly flavored garlic, and creates a huge demand for his crop. He has a one hundred acre farm in southern Iceland, including a private black sand beach, rolling hills, and wild horses that frequent his land.
Chromaluxe Metal Prints: These prints represent a new medium in photographic printing. Using a specialty process, we sublimate ink directly into a sheet of light reflective Chromaluxe aluminum. Due to the luminescence of the metal surface, the finished product has a brightness, vibrancy, and a clarity to it that cannot be rivaled with any other printing technique. Chromaluxe prints are so luminous, that they almost appear backlit. In addition to the striking finish, metal prints are guaranteed to last for a century without noticeable fading, are scratch resistant, waterproof, and all come with sleek aluminum hanging hardware on the back of the print for seamless hanging. The final piece will hang an inch and a half away from the wall. Chromaluxe prints represent the best quality prints in the industry and are the perfect modern art piece for any home.
Paper Prints: All of our paper prints are printed onto Kodak archival papers. This type of print requires matting and framing before it is ready to be hung.
Finishes: All of our paper prints come on Kodak Metallic fine art papers. Our Chromaluxe metal prints, however, come on two different finishes. Our recommended finish is on the high gloss Chromaluxe. The high gloss will have incredible contrast and depth, however it is prone to reflections if hung directly across from a window. Due to this, we also offer our Chromaluxe prints on a matte finish. The matte finish will have slightly less contrast that the high gloss, but will have zero reflections, and is recommended for areas where windows will cause reflections.
