I have cards now - they are printed on glossy stock paper and are 5x7
inches. I also have card boxes, which include a selection of ten cards.
The envelopes are made with 100% post-consumer waste. That means they
are 100% recycled, use almost no chemicals to break down the fibers (since
they were already paper in their previous state) and are helping to deal
with our enormous amounts of waste. They are also completely chlorine-free.
My prints are giclee (pronounced "zee-clay") prints, which in
French means "to spray ink." The images are scanned and then
digitally stored in a computer and sent directly to a high-resolution
inkjet printer. The technology provides incredible detail and brilliant
color. The resolution is actually
higher than traditional lithographs or serigraphs. Prints are made with
professional Kodak photo paper, which is glossy & acid-free and the
highest quality photo paper available. All unframed prints are backed
with solid acid-free board and are permanently protected with fitting
polypropylene bags that are also acid-free. Because everything is acid-free,
you could theoretically keep the print in its protective plastic bag for
decades, without getting it framed. Just please don't place your prints
in direct sunlight so it stays better protected. All the prints are personally
signed by me. The ©2002 Katharina Woodworth and www.aquafemina.com
that are on each and every picture on the site are NOT printed on my prints
and cards. I have put those on so that if my images are stolen, at least
there is some credit to myself and this site.
Below are photos of prints in their packaging, to give you an idea of
what they look like. Many people have expressed to me how professional
my prints look, in both the plastic bags and behind the glass and frames.
Many have also said how my prints are so much more than what they saw
online. And the quality of the prints is so good that people who have
seen my originals and my prints could not tell them apart! Don't be fooled
by the quality of the images on this site. The computer is limited to
72 dots per inch, while I print in the thousands of dots per inch. Plus,
all the images on this site are optimized for faster download times. I
back my items with a full refund, so you risk nothing in purchasing.

sturdy backboard (Crescent board), protected by a polypropylene bag.

an acid-free polypropylene bag.
All framed images have 4 to 5.5 inches of mat space (more than most
artists use, which adds to an elegant look). They are framed with
black acid-free mat board and sturdy, black aluminum Nielsen frames.
If you want to custom order a mat color/frame color you just need
to contact me and I'll
be happy to oblige. I charge nothing extra if you want a white mat
board, but I charge $5 extra if you want a different mat color (so
long as it's available) with the black frame and $15 extra if you
want a different mat & different frame color.
All the prices listed on the order form are for prints of the paintings.
If you are interested in purchasing an original painting, please
Occasionally I do custom orders. You will have to contact me to
work out the details. I charge 50% up front, although for larger
projects, I can break the payments up into thirds. No two images
will be alike and you will have a one-of-a-kind original. Below
is a cd rom case I painted for a friend.
