Limited-Edition Fine Art Prints

Charles Needle Photo Bring nature's beauty into your home or office with Charles' exquisite matted, hand-signed and numbered fine art photographic prints. These are available in various sizes, framed or unframed, from each of the images presented in the Gallery section of this website.

All photographs are custom-printed in limited editions of 100, and are individually made from high-quality color transparency originals, captured on professional 35 mm fine-grained film.

Charles carefully selects only the strongest images with highest technical and artistic qualities to become fine art prints. Once chosen, each transparency is scanned to create a 4000 dpi high-resolution file. Each file then undergoes painstaking individual adjustments for color and density correction using Adobe Photoshop software in a color-calibrated workflow environment, which ensures accurate reproduction of all the fine details and vibrant hues captured on film.

The images are then printed by a ZBE Chromira 50 wide-format printer on Fuji Crystal Archive photographic paper, using state-of-the-art technology and archival pigment inks. (In recent tests conducted by Wilhelm Imaging Research, Crystal Archive paper was shown to have an average viewing lifespan of more than 60 years under normal display conditions, nearly twice the longevity of all Iris, inkjet and photo materials tested.)

After Charles approves each final print, it is archivally mounted, then double-matted on acid-free white matte board. Charles then signs and numbers each print before framing it in either a black or mahogany beveled wood frame. (See sample frame illustrations on this page.) Careful attention is also given to packing your order to ensure it arrives undamaged and in excellent condition.

Contact us to place your custom order, or download our faxable Order Form. Choose from 4 print sizes shown below. Please specify image number when ordering. Unframed prints are shipped double-matted and shrink wrapped. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery. Quantity discounts available if same image is ordered; please inquire.
