Where & How to Buy
You can purchase many of the images you find on our website as either Fine Art Limited Edition Prints or Canvases or Open Edition Prints or Canvases. If you are in southern Alberta, we would love to welcome you to our Wildlife Art Gallery in the Crowsnest Pass (we’re located right on Main Street in Blairmore). We will be opening our online print store as soon as we have completed developing all the features. In the meantime, if you are interested in adding any of the works you see here from John, Jenaya, Marlise or Josiah Launstein, we would love to chat with you about print options and pricing…just drop us an email or give us a call at our gallery at (403) 627-3969.
About Our Limited Edition Prints
All limited edition prints from Launstein Imagery are restricted to editions ranging from 50 to 150 prints. A small number of additional Artist’s Proofs may be available for purchase (see below for additional information on this highly-collectible option).
All prints are signed and numbered, and come with a Certificate of Authenticity and statement about the image. Once the total number of prints in an edition is reached, no additional prints will ever be made from that image. Note that Launstein Imagery reserves the right to license all images for publication or use in other media.
All our Fine Art Limited Edition Prints are printed on the finest, museum-grade, archival cotton rag papers available, producing exceptional longevity and colorfastness in normal display environments. Certain prints are also available as premium archival acrylic prints, offering stunning colour reproduction and clarity in a contemporary presentation.
Our Fine Art Canvas Giclees maintain the highest level of archival longevity and use exceptional quality artist’s canvas available rolled for easy international shipping or stretched over a sturdy, internal wood stretcher frame.
All our prints come with a total satisfaction guarantee. We take every effort to ensure our prints are of the highest quality and they are handled with the utmost care and attention when being signed and prepared for shipment. Rag prints are normally sent in a sturdy shipping tube to ensure their protection en route to their new home. If there is any damage at the time you receive your order or you are not completely satisfied with the print(s) in any way, please contact us immediately to make arrangements to return the order for replacement or refund.
One of several characteristics that set our rag prints apart is they are printed on oversized paper, allowing for an attractive white border surrounding the image which can include the handwritten title, signature and edition information at the bottom. The collector may choose to leave this visible when framing the print, or bring the mat to the image edge. Exact print and image dimensions will be clearly stated for each image.
A small number of Artist’s Proofs are available for each of our limited editions. These are meticulously printed one at a time and are of the highest quality. Each print is carefully inspected by the artist to ensure it perfectly matches the original digital image, and then is hand-signed and numbered as an A.P. (Artist’s Proof). These are considered to be the most collectible of all our prints and are restricted to the following quantities: editions of 50 and 75 have not more than 10 Artist’s Proofs, editions of 100 have not more than 12, and editions of 150 have not more than 15.
