    Mounting, presenting & packaging fine prints. How I do it.

    Hello my name is Luca Paradisi, I live in Ireland and I make a living selling my work (platinum prints) on eBay and off my web sites.

    Since most of my customers buy online I thought that a sort of detailed photographic walkthrough explaining how my prints are mounted, presented and packaged would be useful to them.

    I thought that perhaps the same information would be appreciated here as well, especially for fellow photographers selling or willing to sell their work online.

    Here's the link http://www.fineartplatinum.com/images/finishing.htm

    Cheers,
    Luca

    I'll jump in because I have one of Luca's beautiful prints, Celosia, in front of me - a gift from a friend. There is a small signature in pencil on the matte just below the bottom right of the window and an edition number just below the bottom left. The print itself is signed on the back.

    Best,
    Helen

    Thanks, and beautiful work too.
