Select a frame to com­ple­ment the art­work & the room (see exam­ples below) & your Amper­Art prints will add a stun­ning visu­al enhance­ment to your home or office.


AmperArt print & poster sizes

Orig­i­nal signed art prints are 20 x 30 inch­es, avail­able by spe­cial request. Large poster prints, up to 24 x 36 inch­es, are also avail­able. Your free Amper­Art posters are 11 x 17 inch­es &  look fab­u­lous in frames. They can also be reduced and print­ed on stan­dard letter-​size paper for a mini gallery, album, or binder cov­er insert.

For the ulti­mate pre­sen­ta­tion, print on  tabloid-​size paper (US size 11x17 inch, sim­i­lar to A3 inter­na­tion­al). If you don’t have that size print­er, print­ing tabloid size is stan­dard at any copy loca­tion and most office sup­ply stores.

Printing

Use these set­tings for the best print results:
  • Select por­trait (ver­ti­cal)
  • Choose the paper size in the print­er (tabloid 11x17 inch­es rec­om­mend­ed)
  • Select 100% repro­duc­tion size (do not enlarge or reduce)
  • Select the high­est qual­i­ty set­tings for the paper you are using:
  • photographic/​premium pho­to
  • high­est res­o­lu­tion
  • col­or enhance­ment on, off, or adjust­ed to your pref­er­ences

Laser: For laser print­ers select the high­est qual­i­ty set­ting & print on pre­mi­um laser paper, heavy­weight pre­ferred. High qual­i­ty mat­te paper ren­ders the finest gallery-​style fin­ish.

Inkjet: Print on gloss or mat­te pho­to­graph­ic paper, heavy­weight pre­ferred. Pho­to paper yields much rich­er col­ors & fin­er detail than plain paper. Select photographic/​highest resolution/​premium pho­to paper set­tings.

This might be your best solu­tion so you’ll get the size & results you want: Have your posters print­ed at a copy store or repro­duc­tion ser­vice bureau from your file. Tell them you want high-​quality photographic-​quality prints on gloss or mat­te heavy-​weight paper. Also give them the above sug­ges­tions.
Tips for print­ing at a copy store:
  • Ask to see sam­ples of their work sim­i­lar to your poster.
  • Print just one copy to check for size, col­or, and qual­i­ty before you print more. If it is unsat­is­fac­to­ry request adjust­ments. It is cus­tom­ary to not pay for a test print, unless it is per­fect, in which case it can be con­sid­ered a pro­duc­tion print.

Framing

black art print poster frame
Amper­Art prints look fab­u­lous in sleek thin black frames fit­ted to the exact dimen­sions of the print.
These poster-​style frames are avail­able at art stores & depart­ment stores as well as fram­ing shops. They are made of wood, met­al, or plas­tic & are easy to mount & hang.
Michael’s Arts & Crafts has a pack­age of 2 black 11x17 inch met­al frames with glass lens for less than $10. (Even less with their fre­quent 30 – 50% off 1‑item coupons.) These are the easiest-​to-​insert frames I’ve ever used and they are of sub­stan­tial qual­i­ty: met­al & glass, not plas­tic.
I’ve spent near­ly $200 to cus­tom frame Amper­Art prints, and it cer­tain­ly does enhance the art­work. But for less than 5 bucks each a sim­ple black frame looks sleek & ele­gant­ly pre­sentable.
