Bird of Paradise 2
The Designer series is abstract, yet intentional. Beautiful Hawaii distilled down to simple lines, while maintaining the recognizable and vibrant colors we all love in this amazing place!
This series is intended to deliver an incredibly wide range of sizes and shapes to suit nearly any space. For the designer, home or business owner, you can build it to suit: Choose your substrate, then select the overall size you need (Including show stopping sizes up to 24') and the number of pieces in the arrangement. Inquire if you would like something beyond what you see offered.
For those who want Hawaii on the wall but Lyle's landscape images aren't quite right for the space...these are for you!
For our limited edition pieces, we offer two excellent substrate options:
Aluminum: Our standard substrate, our beautiful metal prints offer an exceptional value. Dye is infused directly on to a sheet of aircraft grade aluminum, giving the image a beautifully luminescent appearance. With no texture, they are very crisp and offer excellent color, contrast and black levels. They are an unmatched value, are lightweight for easy hanging and are available up to 48” x 96” in a single piece.
Lumachrome: An incredible, stunning upgrade! Lumachrome is a proprietary printing process, available exclusively through one boutique print lab. Lyle flew and spent two long days there at their facility, learning from their experts and getting set up to offer the highest quality print available on the market today. They start with an acrylic backer, a layer of white photo paper, then a metal infused color transparency layer and finally another layer of acrylic. This unique process results in unparalleled three-dimensional depth and an astonishing warm glow, giving viewers the appearance of being lit from within. Extremely sharp and detailed with amazingly vibrant color, Lumachrome prints are next level and we are honored to be able to offer them to you. Slightly larger single pieces are an option, up to 60" x 120".
We offer numerous options to beautifully display your new art that will vary by substrate:
Float Mount – Standard up to around 36” wide single pieces, our basic mount hangs the art ½” off the wall. Lightweight and simple to hang, they come pre-installed and include rubber feet to prevent marring the wall and to help minimize movement on the wall.
Inset Metal Mount – Standard on sizes above 36” wide and any multiple panel arrangements, these mounts are ¾” deep and offer increased rigidity to prevent any warping of the print. They include a metal cleat, which keeps the print level at all times and this mount can be locked to the wall for commercial spaces, rental units or in areas with high winds, etc. Inset mounts are also available as an upgrade for the smaller pieces if you are displaying them in a grouping and would like a consistent ¾” gap or to lock them down.
Exhibit Mount – This is an upgrade to the inset mount, particularly for larger pieces. It takes an inset metal mount and adds a black Dibond backer to the metal, giving it a wonderful high-end presence on the wall with the added thickness.
Flush Mount - This is definitely our preferred mount for aluminum prints! From a practical standpoint, they are the best way to keep your metal print looking great for years to come. Typically, any time we see damage to a metal print it has been accidentally bumped, resulting in a bend running along the mount on the back of the print, leaving a visible crease. The flush mount does a great job at preventing this. From a visual standpoint, it gives the print a nice blocky appearance on the wall and you can choose from a variety of colors to match (or contrast) your piece! It can also be locked on the wall.
Float Framing – With numerous wood and metal options, the metal print will float inside the frame with a ¼” gap all the way around. There is no glass or acrylic over the top of the print for a nice mixture of traditional and contemporary. They come finished with wire for hanging.
High-Gloss – This is the standard selection, simply because it is what most of our customers are accustomed to. Lots of shine, which results in the sharpest print we can get on metal. However, the shine can also result in distracting reflections, showing lights and windows in the room.
Mid-Gloss – This is our preferred laminate, cutting reflections significantly, with minimal loss in contrast or sharpness. We also enjoy the slightly more traditional feel that comes with an ever-so-slightly muted presentation.
Both laminates offer good UV protection, but we do suggest keeping metal prints out of the direct sun.
Inset Mount – This is the ‘standard’ mount for our Lumachromes, but is far from typical. For pieces up to 40" x 60", you'll receive a .75" deep mount. Anything larger than that includes a 1.25" deep mount. All of our pieces also include an acrylic backer, which prevents warping in humid environments. Heavy, and heavy duty.
Roma Mouldings – We offer a variety of the most stunning handmade Italian frames and linen liners and can frame pieces up to 10’ wide. Due to the specific and custom nature of these frame offerings, we are not currently offering them online. We would love to speak with you to help you pick yours out, please contact us and we’ll get you going!
Standard – 1/8” thick clear acrylic, facemounted to the Lumachrome print.
Tru Vue – Also 1/8” thick, our upgraded offering is optically clear, reduces reflections somewhat, has more vibrant color, increased sharpness and improved scratch resistance.
We are offering this image as a Limited Edition print. That means it will come signed and individually numbered by the artist and the production run is strictly limited. Note that we are very picky about how far we will enlarge an image to ensure excellent print quality, so not all images will be available to the largest sizes. Our limited edition prints are meticulously edited, enlarged, sharpened and printed for the best possible results. This process typically takes more than a few hours, but the end result is worth it!
Our shipping can be a little bit complicated on our end. We use multiple facilities around the country, as well as ship from our location here in Paia.
For metal prints, acrylic blocks, paper prints, coasters and etc., it is typically 3-5 business days to ship and the shipping company will vary. Pieces may ship in separate boxes or crates and arrive at different times.
With Lumachromes we have extended production times with our boutique lab, typically 3-4 weeks to ship. Don't worry, it’s worth it! You should receive a call to arrange delivery, especially with larger crated pieces.
Please open all pieces within 48 hours of receiving and let us know right away if they aren’t perfect!
