Al Young Studios now offers 1,712 open-edition prints through its online art gallery at alyoung.com. This total includes 853 giclee-canvas prints as well as 859 prints on paper in a great variety of sizes.
These additions to the Studios' product line are part of an effort to offer a complete range of print sizes and styles for artworks from the Studios' portfolio, presenting customers with the widest possible range of sizes to fit their needs, and yet maintain the integrity of each image. (Some customers want the entire image reproduced in a print, regardless of the added step of custom framing or matting. Other customers prefer the relative simplicity of framing in standard sizes, even if it means the image has necessarily been cropped.)
Prints now available in the Studios' product line include a full range of canvas reproductions for standard frame sizes available internationally as well as sizes common in the United States. To accommodate the standard frame sizes, the original images have been cropped to fit.
The new prints also include a full range of canvas reproductions featuring the entire image of each original painting, regardless of frame sizes. Full-image reproductions usually require custom framing (or matting within standard sizes) because the originals are seldom the proportion of a standard frame size.
All of these prints are open-edition reproductions as opposed to limited editions. This not only keeps prices more affordable, but allows indefinite availability of the prints.
The 148 original artworks from the Studios' commercial portfolio include 69 oil paintings, 75 lithographs, and 4 block prints. The lithographs are the only limited editions currently available from the artists at Al Young Studios.
