Our Classic icons are hand-crafted in our wood shop from durable 3/4 inch MDF boards with a real wood veneer. They are gessoed and painted by hand, similar to traditional icons. Your chosen icon is printed on archival-quality paper using our exclusive process. Lifetime-guaranteed not to fade.
Our Masterpiece icons are hand-crafted in our wood shop from 1 inch poplar lumber grown in renewable American hardwood forests. Cross-slats are set in place for a traditional appearance, without nails or glue, reducing warping. Your chosen icon is printed on fine-quality cotton canvas and sealed using our exclusive process. Lifetime-guaranteed not to fade. Allow up to 10 business days for production.
Our exclusive Protective Wax option is available on our Classic and Masterpiece icons. It is made in-house from beeswax, a mixture which binds with the pores in the wood to help prevent moisture from entering and causing the wood to warp. It also adds an attractive luster to the wood.
Our Heavy Duty Coating option is designed for icons that will be displayed outdoors or in a place where it will be heavily venerated, such as in a church. This option gives additional protection to the print. The coating features several hand-applied coats of our special UV-protecting and water-repelling sealants especially for outdoor display. Allow up to 1 additional week for production of icons with Heavy Duty Coating.
