The Prints - Aaron Reed Photography
Welcome to my website and thank you for your interest in my work! The details below will educate you on everything you need to know about my art, the prints and the process from beginning to end when purchasing fine art photography of mine through this website. If I have not answered your question below, please feel free to reach out to me personally at any time via email or telephone. I enjoy speaking with potential collectors of my work and I am happy to help in any way that I can.
I offer my entire body of work through this website, in sizes ranging from 24x36 all the way to 48x72. Many select pieces can be created as larger pieces up to 60x100. Every ChromaLuxe HD Metal and Lumachrome HD Acrylic pieces are finished using "float Mount" gallery quality mounting materials creating a ready to hang piece that does not require exterior framing of any kind. This not only relieves you of the need to pay for expensive external framing, but also creates a visually clean and crisp display that looks striking in any home or business environment. Shipping is included at no additional cost anywhere in the US for pieces 60" and under. For those who truly want the ultimate in quality and museum quality art, I offer my Lumachrome HD prints externally framed with ROMA Hand Made Italian Tabbachino Dark Ash Framing and linen liners in your choice of colors.
Each piece from my collections is signed and numbered digitally prior to purchase. A signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity is also provided and often shipped separately from the print itself. This digital signature process ensures the longevity of the provenance along with the print itself.
Purchase, Production, Shipping & Handling
Purchasing a piece from one of my collections can be completed by using the drop down menus found on every product page by simply clicking on the image, making your selections, entering your personal information and proceeding to check out. All transactions are completed using PayPal payment systems and are processed without sharing your financial details. Custom invoices can also be provided for multiple print purchases that may include progressive volume discounts by inquiring via email or telephone. A PayPal account is not needed to process credit card payments using either method.
Once a piece(s) is paid for through this website or via emailed invoice, it is placed into production within 24 hours. Photographic paper (Fuji Crystal) prints take approx 7 business days to produce, while ChromaLuxe and Lumachrome HD prints take approx 21 business days. Pieces larger than 60" or externally framed pieces may require extended production time. Every print sold is packaged professionally and fully insured to ensure your order arrives undamaged. Due to shipping company requirements, deliveries must be inspected within 48 hours of receipt. In the extremely rare case where a piece is damaged during delivery, simply photograph the packaging and the piece and send them directly to me. A replacement will immediately be placed into production and a second delivery made.
The pricing found on this website for all pieces less than 72" includes shipping and handling at no additional cost anywhere inside the US. Pieces larger than 72" and deliveries outside of the US (including Canada) require additional shipping costs.

About Artist Proof's - AP
In addition to my Limited Edition pieces that are held to 50, 100 or 200 total pieces respectfully, I also offer 1 Artist Proof (AP) of each piece. All Artist Proofs are printed as Lumachrome Face Mounted Acrylic Prints at 45", 60" or 72". Each of these Artist Proofs are signed and numbered with A/P #1 of 1. A hand written letter from the artist is also included describing special details and thoughts from the artist. Only 1 Artist Proof of each image will ever be printed, increasing their value and rarity. Each of these pieces is an investment and will increase in value at a higher rate than pieces from the body of the collection itself. Each Artist Proof requires an investment of $7500 regaurdless of print size.
About First Printing - FP
When I designate one of my pieces as a Limited Edition piece, I choose the total number of prints to be offered in the collection. I withhold the First Printing (FP) of each piece in the collection to keep for myself, or to be offered as the very last print sold of that Limited Edition. The First Printings are also printed on High Gloss Hi Def ChromaLuxe Metal sheeting or Face Mounted Acrylic with Museum Grade backing and are ready to hang. These pieces are signed FP 1/50, FP 1/100 or FP 1/200 depending on the piece. Hand selected pieces are chosen based on overall popularity and can now be purchased in advance of the selection selling out. As with Artist Proofs, First Printing’s also carry a higher value and will increase in value at a faster rate than pieces from the body of the collection itself. First Printing pieces require an investment of $2000 above the standard pricing for ChromaLuxe or $2500 above the standard pricing for Lumachrome HD prints.
To be sure that your selected piece is available, please contact me directly to receive an invoice for purchase. Artist Proofs and First Printings can both be personalized, making these an incredible opportunity to purchase as a gift for a loved one or business partner.
Dream. Design. Display.
The very personal process of choosing, purchasing and ultimately displaying a piece of fine art can be a daunting one. Space, color and light should all be taken into account when making this decision. When considering a piece from one of my collections, you are afforded the ability to work directly with the artist, not high pressure salespeople or gallery directors. When you have questions, you can speak to me personally via email or telephone anytime, evenings and weekends included. I enjoy speaking with potential customers, getting to know them and what they hope to achieve for their space.
Whether home or large office, I am happy to provide my assistance when making this decision and to help in any way that I can. Aside from direct communication I offer mock-ups of your specific space and the piece(s) you are hoping to display. Simply send a photograph of the space via email through the contact link at the bottom of this page, along with details on the size of the piece and the image title(s) you are considering. I will return to you a completed design in an effort to help you envision a piece of my art displayed in your home or business.
Experience Luxury Service
For those with large scale projects for home or business who would like an even more personal experience I offer my Experience Luxury service.
