Welcome to the Fine Print!
How are the greeting cards produced?
Our greeting cards are printed for us here in the US, on sustainably sourced paper with vegetable based inks. The cards are blank, ready for you to write all your witty thoughts. They measure 4.25 inches by 5.5 inches, and come with a matching brown Kraft envelope. The card and envelope are enclosed in a plastic sleeve for safe keeping.
LIMITED EDITION PRINTS
How are the prints produced?
Our limited edition prints are reproduced in house from Lee’s original artwork. They are printed on beautiful, textured 100% cotton rag paper, with archival inks. The images have a white border around them that can be trimmed if needed, depending on the style of framing selected. Most of the images come in standard sizes.
How many prints are in an edition?
Editions of 11x14 and 11x17 prints are limited to 250. Editions of 16x20 prints are limited to 175. Each print is signed by the artist.
How are the original paintings produced?
Lee paints each one by hand. The images often start off as an “ugly sketch”, which he then refines through several rounds of revising and tweaking. Next he does several color studies. When he does the final piece, often he sketches the image, turns it into a digital file, then prints the sketch out on fancy watercolor paper. That is when the painting begins!
Early on, he experimented with all sorts of paints - acrylics, heat set, oils, gouche, you name it. These days he works primarily in watercolor, but he likes to include all sorts of fun details in all sorts of media, such as ink, colored pencil and collage.
Once complete, each painting is finished with a clear varnish to protect the image.

How are greeting cards shipped?
Each greeting card and envelope is enclosed in a plastic sleeve, and shipped in a larger envelope via USPS.
How are prints shipped?
Each print is enclosed in a clear plastic sleeve with a backer board, and shipped flat in a sturdy, cardboard mailer. We ship the prints flat because we feel this better preserves their integrity than rolling them up and shipping them in a tube : )
How are original paintings shipped?
Very, very carefully! They are shipped in a frame, with a protective clear acrylic window to protect the painting. (The window is more for protection, than for display, as it is quite reflective. We recommend swapping out the window for museum glass or similar quality once it is received.) The corners are reinforced with cardboard corner protectors. Paintings are then enclosed in a heavy duty bubble wrap bag and carefully packed in a sturdy box. Shipping includes insurance.
If you live in Portland or Seattle, we can make arrangements to personally deliver the painting to you.
How do you accept payment?
