Himalayas in Ravangla is a limited edition landscape photography artwork by Saroj Malick. Fine art, since it stands for its beauty and elegance, it gives you a timeless experience. What separates it from other kinds of artworks, is the meticulous and thoughtful execution of the artist’s imagination. Fine art is not a factual representation of a real-life scene. As imagination is the reflection of our sensory experience. Here the artist dwells in a territory unknown to others and analyzes his sensory perceptions and their emotional responses to certain things to evoke the same experience in the viewers’ minds through his artwork.
The creation of such artworks often takes weeks or even months, from finding a feasible scene to the final print. Thus when presented, artwork no longer remains a flat sheet of paper or canvas. It becomes a window to the world that allows you to relive the experience and discover its beauty.
Pigment Prints Made with High-Quality Archival Materials
We use high-quality archival materials for our limited edition pigment prints. We print them on acid-free and lignin-free museum grade archival artist canvas or professional fine art matte paper using a high-end pigment-based large-format inkjet printer. These combinations of archival mediums, archival pigment inks, and printing technology help us produce the desired contrast, rich tone, and vivid colors that instantly create a drama in your interior. See all the technical details of the print mediums that we use to print the artwork below.

The artwork is available on two different types of matte papers, the HP Premium Matte Photo Paper, and the HP Professional Satin Photo Paper. If you are unable to understand the difference, then consider the HP Premium Matte Photo Paper as a pure matte paper and HP Professional Satin Photo Paper as a semi-matte paper, that has a little glossy finish. Unlikely, the glossiness of this HP Professional Satin Photo Paper is not reflective, and often undetectable.
The artist makes this decision. It depends on what works best with the artwork and its subject matter. Some artworks work best with a pure matte finish, and some require a little dazzling effect of the semi-matte, as a supplement. Still, if you have a personal preference, please mention it in your Order’s Note on the checkout page. We will not charge you anything extra for this.
Some of these critical details like, the print media, ink type, the brand, and model of the inkjet printer that we use to create the artwork are mentioned in the certificate of authenticity that you will receive with our limited edition prints. If you still have any specific questions about the technical specifications, feel free to contact us. We’ll be glad to provide you all the details. So you can make an informed decision.
All Limited Edition Prints are Hand-Signed and Numbered
Whether you are adding our artworks to your collection or planning to decorate your home or office interiors, you have the choice for different print sizes. We do have a small size open edition print with most of our artworks.
Since one cannot experience all the details of artwork online, this open edition print helps the most discerning collectors as a proof, who want to see the quality of the artwork in person before collecting a larger one. It also helps minimize the risk of investing in an artwork that you do not find satisfactory and guide you to get a piece that you love.
So, we do not compromise the quality, use the same high-quality material, and pigment inks for the open edition prints. It is also a wonderful way to see how functional it can be in your space.
Of course, one can exchange the artwork with a large-size limited edition print within the specified return period if he finds it satisfactory or as promised. Or if you are collecting the artwork for merely decorative purposes, you can also choose our open edition prints. Please note, we do not sign and provide any warranty, seal, or certificate of authenticity with our open edition pigment prints.
The artwork is available in varied sizes, mediums, and editions. The size of the artwork referrers to the image area. The specific number in the edition referrers to the number of prints the artist has promised. A limited-edition print of 5 means, the artist will not create more than 5 copies. All the limited-edition prints are hand-signed, numbered, and include a certificate of authenticity from the artist.
|Artwork Size||Artwork Medium||Artwork Edition|
|18 x 12 inch||Archival Canvas/Matte Paper||Open Edition Pigment Print (Unsigned)|
|30 x 20-inch||Archival Canvas/Matte Paper||Limited Edition Pigment Print of 50 (Hand-signed and Numbered)|
|45 x 30-inch||Archival Canvas/Matte Paper||Limited Edition Pigment Print of 20 (Hand-signed and Numbered)|
We do leave sufficient space around the artwork for matting and framing. The border around the picture also makes the handling easy. So the actual print size is larger than what we mentioned above. For example, you will receive a 32×22 inch print when you order 30×20 inch print. In other words, it has a 1-inch border around the artwork.
We Cover Your Limited Edition Prints with Special Warranties
When an artwork leaves our studio, it is less about all the challenge that goes into making it a fine piece of artwork, and more about who owns it for his lifelong enjoyment, and how he communicates with it that affects his daily life. We believe that the moment a print is made and collected, it is not the end of the process rather the beginning of its actual life that requires nourishment. So it is imperative for us that we protect your investment with our unique and special warranties.
[accordion][pane title=”30 Days Money-Back Guarantee”]
Choosing an artwork doesn’t have to be difficult for you. We understand the limitations of digital display devices and digital reproduction of the artwork. Digital artwork cannot tell you the whole story and can never get you to the essence of the artwork.
A high-quality pigment print contains far more details and resolution than any display on the planet. You may want to see it in person before you finalize your decision rather than depending solely on the digital image of the original artwork. Because our goal is to make you satisfied with your investment.
We highly recommend that you order the smallest size available for experimental purposes, which you can always exchange with a larger one within 30 days of receiving the artwork. Because large-size artworks are difficult to handle, and we do not accept any return of a damaged artwork. However, we do take responsibility if the artwork gets damaged in transit, and you receive a damaged package. Please read our return policy for more information.
[/pane][pane title=”Lifetime Fade-Resistant Warranty”]
We use fade-resistant pigment inks and acid-free and lignin-free museum grade archival canvas or matte paper for our limited edition artworks. According to Wilhelm Imaging Research and HP Image Permanence Lab, it has an archival rating of 200+ years. If the colors and tones of the artwork fade, we will replace it after the necessary testings.
The owner must meet some conditions and follow the guidelines as it is mentioned in the technical specification to enjoy this lifetime fade-resistant warranty. One must not display the artwork in direct sunlight or keep it in a damped place. If we find that the owner didn’t keep it away from sunlight and a damped environment, we’ll send you back the artwork. Please read our return policy for more information.
For the sake of clarity, please remember the 30 Days Money-Back Guarantee is related to your purchases. It’s a kind of satisfaction guarantee. It is to deliver you the piece you love. On the other hand, the Lifetime Fade-Resistant Warranty is security for your investment. Exchange and refunds are only available with 30 Days Money-Back Guarantee where the Lifetime Fade-Resistant Warranty replaces it with a fresh copy of the same artwork.
We Ship Your Artworks with Ultimate Damage Protection
To ensure maximum protection, we ship our artworks rolled inside a protective PVC tube that can withstand rough handling during the delivery process. Nevertheless, we’re ready to accept your return if you receive a damaged package. Please read our FAQs to learn what you need to do when you receive a damaged artwork.
We also share the necessary tracking details with our collectors when the shipment awaits a pickup. So they can track the movement from time to time until they receive it at their door. We send the tracking number and the link via email. The tracking details are also available with the order details in their account dashboard.
