Most Charles Vickery limited editions consist of 950 signed and numbered
prints. All prints are shipped “loosely rolled” in heavy-gauge 5-inch diameter
mailing tubes. Please use care in removing the print(s) from the tube, and handle the
contents as little as possible. It is recommended that you take the
tube directly to a reputable framing professional in your area.
Image sizes refer to the dimensions of the image itself, excluding the
title and border.
Please do not use these sizes to order
framing. This should be calculated by a framer who can properly
examine and measure your print.
To determine an approximate framed size, please
add 10-14 inches to the image sizes shown (this assumes the border,
mat, and frame would have a width of 5-7 inches on each of the four
The Mastertouch Canvas is the result of a special process in which a
signed and numbered, limited edition print is transferred onto canvas. It
is not a copy. For each Mastertouch Canvas produced, one of the prints
from the limited edition must be physically sacrificed.
During the process, the paper portion of the print is eliminated. The
colors remain intact as they are chemically transferred directly onto the
canvas and sealed to the surface with a protective acrylic finish.
The primary benefit is the striking resemblance to an original oil
painting. When the colors are part of the canvas, the image appears to
have greater depth—a softer, more 3-dimensional look. What’s more,
the protective finish eliminates the need for glass while enhancing the
vibrancy of the colors and the responsiveness to light.
Because only the actual image of the print becomes a part of the
canvas, the overall framed size is slightly smaller than that of the
standard limited edition print, and the title, signature, and number are
lost in the process. Therefore, to guarantee their authenticity as being
part of a limited edition, canvases are made from prints which Mr.
Vickery had specially signed in the lower portion of the image.
In addition to their enhanced beauty, many collectors also find them
particularly desirable because of the relatively small number that will be
produced over the life of a print.
Pricing is $300 above the price of the print.
Since these canvases are produced
individually, please allow 2 to 6 weeks for delivery.
