Memphis Tennessee Beale Street Downtown Home of the Blues Photography landmark Canvas Metal Print wall decor art print
Beale Street, Memphis, Tennessee!
This is the most famous street in Memphis and one of the most culturally rich single streets in America.
It was key in the struggle for Civil Rights, and a center of black excellence since the early 1900s.
Many Blues, rock and roll, jazz and soul musicians got their start on Beale Street.
This was shot on Beale St late at night, immediately following a road-trip from Nashville and some southern BBQ!
There are 3 ways to print these images.
1) Professional High Quality Paper Prints, are professional quality glossy paper prints. They have a nice sharp and glossy finish and are only available in 8 in x 10 in. They are designed to be placed in a frame, which can be purchased separately (starting at a few dollars at your local dollar store or Walmart).
Metallic, Ultra-Gloss Paper Prints are much sharper, more vivid and the colors more intense than any other printing method I've ever seen. These are bigger. They start at 12 x 18 inches and go all the way up to 30x45 inches!
These are much sharper, have deeper blacks, brighter whites, and three-dimensional rich depth to them This is not a cheap substitute to a metal print. They are exposed in a darkroom with a $150,000 printer (exposed to special light instead of using printing ink, sort of like back in the film days in the darkroom).
I recommend getting the biggest piece you can fit on your wall, as the printing price only goes up gradually as you double, triple or quadruple the size of the print.
These ultra high quality Metallic paper prints do need to be framed.
The delivery time for printing, packaging and shipping for metallic paper prints is around 3-5 business days.
3) Canvas Printing is a well-known, high-end way of displaying photographs. This also has the advantage of frames being optional.
They come "gallery wrapped". This is a high quality canvas, stretched and stapled onto a set of 3/4 inch deep wooden stretcher-bars that give it shape, in the same way an oil painting is typical stretched.
There are no staples or ugly lines visible on the sides (very important). It comes out of the shipping box finished and ready to hang with a simple nail in the wall. Once the stretched canvas print arrives and is in your hands, you then have the option of framing it locally if you decide you want that look, instead of the modern no-frame "gallery wrap" look.
Even $5 million homes commonly have unframed work on their walls, depending on the decor style in that home.
The delivery time for printing, packing and shipping on a customized canvas print is around 3-5 business days.
