The Columbia Hotel

It’s the light! It’s almost always the light that draws me to a particular object. I like the patterns in the black of the building against the bright lettering that’s in contrast with the lighter areas in the sky.

Turns out, this is a historic building in Ashland, Oregon. Located on the second floor of the Enders Building, according to Wikipedia, it “was the first concrete commercial structure in Ashland”  when it was built in 1910. The hotel had been in continuous operation until 2021 when it closed down.

Archival-Quality Prints: A Century of Timeless Memories

These prints are not just images, they can become old friends. Crafted to meet stringent archival standards, the papers and inks we use are designed to last over a century with the right care. Here’s what it means for you:

  • Longevity: Each print is engineered to endure, with a lifespan extending beyond 100 years when kept in optimal conditions.
  • Care Instructions: To maintain image quality:
    ◦ Store unframed prints in an archival-quality container.
    ◦ For framed displays, use archival matting and adhesive, coupled with UV-filtering glass to safeguard against sunlight and environmental damage.
    • Environment Matters: Place your artwork away from direct sunlight and high humidity to maintain its pristine condition.
