Unique Firearm Art
How I got the idea for this project…
This project’s roots go back to a day when I had a firearm receiver shipped to my office. A pair of curious workers, knowing my hobby, decided to “take a peek” while not opening the package. They CAT scanned it and sent me the image via our instant messaging system as I was working off site that day. That’s when the light bulb went off. I then experimented and continually improved the technique to make even more interesting images. I scanned a wide selection of guns using a variety of methods to produce source images that were then further refined. After several years and multiple generations of test prints I produced what I feel are the best such images ever created.
The prints are meant to be framed. They make for great man-cave art and are very unique additions to any gun room. The majority of these firearms are from my personal collection but some were loaners from friends. Most are ATF registered transferable machine guns. The older firearms from WW2 are generally matching numbers (Curio and Relics) originals with some even having interesting pedigrees and stories behind them.
I’m continuously adding new designs as time allows but it’s not a simple process. Once the scan parameters have been tailored for a specific gun and the source images created they are tediously worked on by myself alongside my graphics designer. Each image then requires several rounds of test printing at a professional print shop with each gun subsequently undergoing many revisions until you see the final print offered here. As far as I know I am the first person to do such a project and hope you enjoy these prints as much as I enjoyed making them.
Thanks for your interest.
All unframed print orders ship USPS 1st class with tracking for USA addresses. USPS states “2-5 days for delivery” .
I make post office runs about twice a week.
Currently prints cost $39.95 – $59.95 with a $5 flat rate shipping (regardless of # of prints within a single order ) for USA orders and $15.00 Canadian orders. These are mailed via USPS in a sturdy mailer tube.
Please allow 3 weeks for framed prints. Framed print shipping costs $20 flat rate.
I now ship to USA and to Canada (prints, not frames) only. I no longer offer other international shipping. I've experienced too many damaged goods upon arrival, delays and many pissed off Int. buyers. Plus I have to mess with stupid HS codes and VAT taxes. I end up refunding and therefore eating way too much in shipping costs and lost prints. We can all thank our International shippers and governments for making it such a shitty experience that it's not worth even doing.
If you are interested custom work (starts at $400) feel free to contact us.
If you are a retailer and would like to carry my prints please contact me for volume wholesale pricing arrangements.
