Wood or Metal Prints – What is the differences, advantages and features of one over the other?


Any image from Edward M. Fielding’s portfolio of 5,000 images can be purchase as a print on paper, canvas or matted and framed with your choice of over 100 different types of frames and mats.  In addition they can be ordered in some of the latest mediums of metal or wood.

Metal is shiny, saturated and eye popping with an almost 3D effect when lit properly. Save this for colorful photographs. Think shiny sports car.

Wood is flat, unsaturated and gives a vintage feeling. Think woodie surfing wagon.

Wood Prints

  • Thicker
  • Flat
  • De-saturated colors because the natural wood tone provides the “whites”
  • Vintage feeling
  • Each print is a “one of a kind” due to the the natural grain in the wood.  No two are exactly alike.
