At the Newfound Gap turnout on Newfound Gap road. which runs through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. we found an entrance to the hiking trail described by the US National Park Service thus: "The Appalachian Trail is a 2,180+ mile long public footpath that traverses the scenic, wooded, pastoral, wild, and culturally resonant lands of the Appalachian Mountains. Conceived in 1921, built by private citizens, and completed in 1937, today the trail is managed by the National Park Service, US Forest Service, Appalachian Trail Conservancy, numerous state agencies and thousands of volunteers."
Each framed photograph is printed on high-quality, archival, fine art, soft gloss paper with a professional, ten-color inkjet printer (giclee') that rivals photographic imaging and surpasses common four-color lithograph printing. Mattes are crafted by hand for each photograph using archival quality matting and foamcore backing.. Frames are solid wood with wood laminate, and assembled for us by Frame Destination in Dallas. We manage every step of the creative process from capture to editing to printing, matting, framing and shipping. Quality is our main product.
This photograph can be printed in most any size that you want--just send us a request and we'll work out a solution. Image sizes are chosen to allow for minimal cropping. Frame sizes are chosen to maintain even and proportional matte borders and the use of off-the-shelf frames. Most all photographs can be printed on metal or canvas, as well. Please send us a message or choose “Request a custom order” to ask about any special request you have.
