We realize that purchasing a print from an image, which you have only viewed on a computer screen, might seem like a daunting prospect. Therefore, we want you to feel fully informed and comfortable in placing an order with the HJF gallery website – please see the FAQ drop down menu, below.
Prior to launching this gallery, I was Director of Print Sales for Florio Studio, NYC – online gallery – for five years. And, I can truthfully say that we never once had: “I really don’t like my print!” from a client.
‘People often like to have direct contact – with the seller. It opens a dialogue and helps put their mind at ease… . They may want to talk about options, budget, sizes, editions, which may entail a couple of emails, or a phone call, back and forth’… Helen Jones-Florio, interview with, New York-based, Photo District News Magazine – ‘The Fine Art Photography Issue’

Will my print(s) be signed, and/or come with a Certificate of Authenticity?
Some of our artists like to sign their prints. However, all prints will come with a ‘Certificate of Authenticity’. This is signed by the artist, detailing the edition number, size, and a description of the image.
All prints are printed on museum quality fine art photographic paper
What is the difference between 'limited edition' and 'open/unlimited edition' prints?
Firstly, there is no difference between the quality of either type.
Limited editions (or ‘collections’) means that there are a definite amount of prints of a particular image – i.e. numbered from 1-20. Once all 20 prints are sold, that particular edition will no longer be available.
Unlimited (open editions) – means that the prints are not numbered. As in, there is no limit on how many prints of a particular image are available.
Who do I contact with any questions about the prints, orders, or the photographers and their work?
Please Contact Us for all queries. We will get back to you within 24 hours, if not much sooner
Do you offer a print framing service?
We do not offer a framing service. The reasons being are:
Framing is a very personal choice. As in, the print needs to fit in with the environment where it will eventually be placed.
There is a higher risk of damage to the frame/glass during shipping.
The cost of shipping insurance of framed prints can prove to be cost prohibitive for many clients.
However, we can advise you on how the artists like to have their work framed.
And, depending on where you are/which country you are in, we will also do our best to recommend reputable print framer in your area.
If you do have a framer that you wish to use, we can send your order directly to them. They can then unwrap the prints, with care, to minimize any damage that over the handling of the print(s) can cause. We advise that you have your print framed as soon as possible, to help protect it when displayed.
If I'm unsure of what I want to fit with my decor, can you advise me?
Absolutely, we would be more than happy to help you decide which print(s) will fit with the environment you wish to place it.
If you are buying more than one print, we can give you suggestions on which prints complement each other. We’ll put together a pdf of images for this very purpose.
