Frameless prints ready for wall placement are available on either 3/16 inch Gatorboard, or on thinner (but very sturdy) aluminum. Aluminum costs a little more but offers a more radiant presentation. Although sizes up to 30″ x 40″ (aluminum) and 44″ x 96″ (Gatorboard) are available, the suggested options listed are intended to keep prices at or below $120 for aluminum prints and $100 for Gatorboards. Reasonable efforts will be made to provide free, local delivery but otherwise expect an additional shipping fee in the $8 to $10 range. Send orders, or deliver questions via email to tjccamas@comcast.net.
