About our Mounted Icons

All our images are printed on museum quality, heavyweight Epson paper. We print with ten Epson UltraChrome HDR inks using high-resolution large format printers. Next, to help prevent scratches and fading, our prints are sealed with a matte laminate giving them both water as well as UV resistance. We then mount them to a solid, 3/4" solid wood panel. The sides and edges are then beveled, sanded and painted a classic "byzantine red". They are then finished with a convenient keyhole routered on the back for easy hanging.

Our Icon Sizes

Although all our icons are printed right here at the shop, the originals come from all over the world and were painted in a great variety of shapes and sizes. Therefore, because it was impossible to create categories for each unique size, we use 5 standard sizes. All our icons meet at least one of the two and, at times, both of the dimensions of a given size category. For example, an icon in the Large (8"x10") category could be 7" wide x 10" high, 8" wide x 9" high, or 8" wide x 10" high. We therefore recommend that you do not buy frames for any of our prints, or make any plans, before receiving them and measuring the exact size. If you would like to know the exact dimensions of specific icons before ordering, please feel free to contact us.

About our Laminated Icon Prints

For those customers who prefer our icons unmounted, we also offer our entire catalogue as just laminated prints. We use an "enhanced matte" laminate, not "glossy". As with our mounted icons, our laminated print sizes are approximate and follow the same standard sizing. If you need an icon larger than one of our standard sizes, we also offer our entire catalog in Wide Format on two types of fine, art quality, Epson Premium Media: Fine Art Canvas and Enhanced Matte Paper.

All laminated icon prints are Limited Discount Items, which means that they only allow one half of the normal discount for wholesale customers or for churches and clergy.

NO RETURNS for Laminated Prints are accepted unless the problem is a material or workmanship imperfection from our production.

Why Not Mounted Canvas Prints?

Traditional iconographers have never painted on a canvas medium (such as preferred by Renaissance painters of the West), but for centuries have painted on gessoed wood. The surface of this gessoed wood is smooth and allows the paint to flow smoothly with the iconographer's expert hand at work. Since the beginning of icon print reproduction, it has become standard for them to be printed, laminated, and mounted to protect and provide clarity of color on a smooth surface. Furthermore, a canvas print is much more costly, and we encourage the faithful to purchase a genuine hand painted icon if the budget allows. UMS does provide the ability for printing on museum quality canvas, but recommends this only for wall mounting use when a fully painted fresco is too costly of a job.
