As both a full-sensory Psychic Medium and an Artist, Missy Reno Smith is in a unique position that allows her to show the world exactly what she sees with her abilities. In The Ribbon Collector, (2021), Missy has again captured Tate Wachiwi (aka Emma), a young caretaker ghost that lives on the grounds of the Minnesota Renaissance Fair. Missy wanted to show Tate admiring the ribbons she enjoys collecting.
These museum quality, digitally-signed* Open Edition Reproduction Prints are available in just one size (Limited Editions are available in three larger sizes).
- 6″ x 8″ – Unlimited Prints
Only the finest materials are used to create Missy’s fully-archival giclée reproduction prints. They are made with the same materials as the Limited Editions. With proper care, your print will last well over 150 years without fading. See the Details tab for the Edition Stats.
*Please note, while the Standard Open Edition prints in this Edition are digitally-signed, the Artist Proofs and Publisher Proofs in this edition are hand-signed, numbered, and may also be embellished.
Custom Frame Options:
Missy offers the below framing option/s for this edition. See the Framing tab for more information about Missy’s custom frame options.
- Hudson Frame, Thin (Black or Warm Silver) – Acid Free Mat (Devonshire Cream) – Tru Vue Conservation Clear Acrylic Glazing
These prints are made especially for each collector upon ordering. Most collectors receive their prints 2-3 weeks after they submit their order. Framing will lengthen the shipping time estimate by around 7-10 days. You will receive a tracking code once the print has shipped. See Shipping tab for more information.
Missy Reno Smith, the artist, retains the sole copyright of the artwork. Any unauthorized reproduction or other use without Missy’s written permission is in violation of both U.S. and International Copyright Law. The artist reserves the right to use the artwork on items such as, but not limited to, reproductions in various sizes and substrates, home décor grade prints (non-archival), collectibles, traditional & digital stationery items, and more. See Copyright Statement for more information.
All display images on this website are watermarked, Missy’s logo does not appear on the print.
Missy gets her custom frames at wholesale which allows her to pass along a considerable savings to her collectors. The frames are typically 50% less than what you would pay at your local frame shop or arts and crafts store. Only the finest fully archival materials are used to provide the highest possible protection for the artwork.
Frame options include traditional frames in wood or metal. All mats and backing boards are fully archival and Missy uses Tru Vue’s Conservation Clear acrylic glazing which provides additional UV protection for artworks and prints on fine art paper. Missy also offers several frames for canvases.
If ordering a framed Limited Edition Print, your frame may arrive separately from your print. The frames do come assembled, you will just need to insert the Limited Edition Print into the frame. Instructions and any needed hardware/materials will be included. These frames are shipped to collectors directly from the custom frame supplier to reduce shipping costs and help us be better stewards of God’s resources. Please keep in mind that the frames typically arrive before the print. Please inspect your frame upon delivery and then store it somewhere safe until the print arrives.
Should it be important the print arrive in the frame, please let us know in the comment box during checkout so we can flag your order and route the frame to Missy’s studio.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR OWN FRAME PACKAGE:
If the frames offered on the website do not fit your home décor style, Missy’s team can help you select the best frame and mat/liner to compliment both the artwork and your home. Missy has access to thousands of custom frame moldings, mats, liners, and more through her framing suppliers. Like her custom frame add-on packages, the cost is typically 50% less than what you would pay at your local frame shop or arts and crafts store.
If you would like to customize your own frame package, please use the comment box during checkout to let us know. We will reach out with more information on this option. Currently, Missy offers this service for those purchasing Original Artworks and Limited Edition Prints.
CUSTOM SCULPTED FRAMES:
Missy can design a completely unique frame with decorative patterns, scrollwork, and other sculpted components that compliment her artworks. She designs these frames in Zbrush and Maya and the digital design file is sent to a CNC Milling partner that mills the frame from wood or other special materials. The frame can be stained or painted and finished with special materials such as Gold Leaf, Platinum Leaf, or Mica as desired.
Missy’s custom sculpted frames are works of art themselves. The cost will depend on the design complexity, size, and materials. If already commissioning a painting, a custom sculpted frame can be added onto the commission. If you would like a custom sculpted frame designed for an original or limited edition print purchased here on Missy’s website, sign up for the Fine Art Commission Consultation and in the “Artwork Type” box, select “Other” and type “Sculpted Frame”.
UNFRAMED CANVAS ART:
While paintings and prints on fine art paper must be framed under glass or acrylic, canvases can be hung on the wall with or without a frame. Missy uses 1.5″ deep stretcher bars to stretch her paintings and prints on canvas. Prints on canvas are gallery wrapped, the printed image is mirrored and wrapped around the 1.5″ deep stretcher bars for a professional finish. Missy also paints the edges of her original artworks on canvas for the same effect. This ensures a beautiful finish from every angle.
For a professional finish on the back, a canvas-like matte tape is applied over the staples to create clean finish. A wire hanger is installed on the back approximately 2/3 of the way up from the bottom of the canvas and a picture hanger wall hook is included for hanging. See photo below.
Shipping fees are very high for large, heavy items, especially when shipping internationally. It may be more cost effective to have your artwork/print framed locally if you live outside of the US. You can compare the framing and shipping costs by adding the framed art to the cart and then entering your address on the checkout page. Remove the framed art and repeat with the unframed option. Please keep in mind that an international shipping broker company might be able to ship your order to you for less than what Missy charges since they are able to negotiate lower rates. When comparing, be sure to factor in the shipping costs for us to ship the artwork/print to the broker’s location (you can find out what that cost is by adding their address on the checkout page).
