I was asked the other day exactly what someone gets when they buy a photo from IthacaStock.com. It's a fair question.
In every case, YOUR delight is our goal, from the customer service you receive to the selection of our array of images to the delivery of your work of art.
Most of our sales are to web designers and graphic artists, who use our images as part of their clients' marketing strategy. Waterfalls and certain buildings of historical significance are the icons of Ithaca, and businesses use these to identify themselves as part of our local community.
They can use images once for either web or print for a price, or for a little more, the client can have unlimited use of the image as part of their identity and web presence.
Still another use is as "Raw Material" for graphic artists. For the minimum fee, artists can download images that they wish to use as a template for their creations. More about that in my next post.
Another possibility is for individuals or businesses to purchase images ready to frame for their businesses' or for their homes walls.
Each of our prints is created at one of the best professional labs in the country, and mounted on mat board. They are given a linen texture and coated with a special protectant to keep the image from fading, and to keep the oils on your hands from degrading the image.
So what is this "canvas upgrade"?
There is nothing like the rich look and feel of a canvas print on your wall. This takes the photo from a simple image to a piece of art. The canvases available from IthacaStock.com have the look and feel of works of art, with a glowing warmth that images on paper just can't compete with.
Each canvas is mounted on a stretcher frame and is ready to be framed. We open and physically examine each canvas before we release it to our clients. It is our intent that you be delighted with every contact with IthacaStock.com, from the initial visit to our web site to taking delivery of your masterpiece.
We can create most of the images you find at IthacaStock.com on canvas from 11X14 to 40X60.
If you don't find the exact size listed, contact us. We would be happy to quote you on exactly the size and presentation of the image you have in mind.
Framing is another option. We can create our canvases and have them framed prior to delivery, or if you wish, you can have them framed at your local professional framer. Again, just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will provide you a quote directly.
