What do you print your prints on?
Museum quality, acid free, archival cotton rag paper. Len’s preferred paper is Innova Smooth Cotton 315gsm. This isn’t always available and Len has to import his own supply. If this paper is not available, Len uses the best equivalent paper he can find. All prints are museum quality.
What do you print the prints with?
The latest Canon and Epson pigment printers. The inks are considered archival with a life expectancy of over a hundred years. This life expectancy is dependent on framing, hanging and storage conditions. If you hang your photographic print in direct sunlight you can not expect it to last as long as museum storage.

Len hand prints some Limited Edition prints, usually as photogravures. He may offer some for sale on the website in the future.
Are they signed?
Len signs and titles all of his prints in pencil in the border of the photograph. He embosses every print which is your verifiable guarantee that it is an original print. The very first print Len labels with a ‘#1’ to indicate it is the very first print ever printed for that photograph. This inevitably will become the most valuable for the serious collector.
