For the most part, all the photos on my site are available for printing. The real decision is whether you want a paper or canvas print.

Paper prints display better sharpness than canvas. Framed prints are traditional and often times, the frame adds to the photo and the overall feel of the room as well. It’s not uncommon for a frame to cost more than what was paid for the photo (the print itself and the rights to print it from the creator).

Canvas prints may not be as detailed as paper prints, however, they are not subject to glare or reflections which can happen with photo prints. Canvas prints do not need to be framed and thus, offer a window into a scene. They may even come off as more artistic due to the painting-like feel and borderless appearance.At larger sizes, canvas prints are also much more economical than photo prints, mainly due to not needing a very large, expensive, frame (and accompanying glass pane).
