1. What is a limited edition art piece?
Limited edition photography art pieces are hand-signed artworks that run on a limited number per material and size. My fine art collections usually have a run of maximum 10 on advanced material (e.g. Alu-Dibond) and the paper prints of maximum 15. As an example: If you buy an artwork at the size of 100x75cm on Alu-Dibond material, you will own one out of 10 of these art pieces worldwide. The edition is limited to 10 fine art pieces. Each art piece comes with a certificate of authenticity.
2. What is a certificate of authenticity?
A certificate of authenticity is designed to protect the security and genuineness of your limited edition art works and reproductions and to reduce the risk of forgery. The certificate contains all the pertinent info about the format, date, print run, edition number, etc.
Each certificate is made of premium deckle edged mould made paper with a Hahnemühle® watermark and fluorescent security fibres. A serialized numbered hologram will be added. A second, identically numbered hologram will be applied to the reverse side of the artwork.
The combination of certificate and hologram assures that each certificate of authenticity relates to one particular piece of art. The limited editions will be registred at the Hahnemühle® central database of authenticity. The certificate and registration are incl. in the art piece price.
3. Can I order my favorite photo in different sizes and materials?

Your individual artwork can be delivered in different sizes and materials such as photo prints, gallery prints, HD metal prints, alu-dibond, acryl glas plate, wood display and more. They can also be delived with or without framing (metal, wood, etc.) and multi-panaled.

4. Do you offer on demand artworks?
Yes I offer on demand art works for invidual clients projects, for example if a client needs photos in a specific style, mood, context and or location. I can travel worldwide.
5. Why does the colours on my monitor not look the same as those on the fine art / print?
The final reproduction is impacted by several factors, including: type of ink, the printer settings and the basic colour of the paper. In general monitors and printers mix colour in different ways. The monitor uses three primary colours (Red, Green, Blue – known as RGB). A monitor produces colour by lighting up the required colours to be mixed and then mixing them. Reprographic colour printing starts with a piece of white paper instead of the black screen of a cathode ray tube. The printer uses four colours (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK – known as CMYK) that are mixed with each other as required during the printing process to produce individual colours. Because the coverage of the colour spectrum differs between the two, a colour profile is used to eliminate the differences.

7. What to do when paper of my prints curls?
The Hahnemühle papers used for my prints are pure natural products, manufactured in an elaborate process from cellulose fibres and/or linters, which are then coated in a separate refinement process. Throughout the production process, the printing company makes sure that important parameters are met. For example - the paper's ‘moisture content'. As paper tends to achieve a balance with its environment, the paper's moisture content can change. Atmospheric condition changes, such as the dry air in heated rooms, damp air in unheated storage rooms or low temperatures can result in ‘curling' - the curving of the paper sheets. More often than not, a slight re-bending of the corners or the use of a ‘D-Roller' will easily solve the problem.
8. Why does Wildalps Adventures uses Hahnemühle papers for their prints?
With the Hahnemühle paper qualities you can rest assured that you will achieve the same high quality result every time. Their special inkjet print coatings have been developed over a number of years and are subject to continuous testing. The product range includes a large selection of textures, surfaces and colours with an array of sheet and roll sizes that appeal due to their unique feel, a superb surface structure and an outstanding colour gamut. The papers have been developed for artists who place extremely high demands on coated artist’s papers.
9. How long do the prints last?
There are basically two criteria for ageing: the paper and the print. All Hahnemühle papers are extremely resistant to ageing in compliance with DIN 6738 and offer the highest life expectancy of several hundred years. The permanence of the print, i.e. the colour adherence is ink dependent and with UV resistant inks (pigmented inks) can last for more than 100 years.
10. Delivery and customs fees
All art works can be delivered worldwide with transportation assurance. The costs for transportation and customs fees are charged in addition to the art piece price.
