Florentine Artworks has been customizing peoples kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms since 2003. We take pride in our small size which gives us the ability to provide our customers with the best service possible. Our process all begins by hand selecting the best tiles with the most character to allow for your tile to make the best impression. We then take any of our own original images or an image you provide and print it on special heat transferable paper which fits the chosen dimensions of the tile. After the tile has been selected and coated with a special image enhancing coating, the printed image is heat transferred to the stone. This process is known as sublimation. After the stone has been imaged it is resealed to ensure durability and permanence, it is now ready for shipment to your door.
Many of our customers ask if we can do custom images, the answer is yes! If you have a high quality image or piece of art in jpg format, chances are that we can do something for you. The image must be high quality (high pixel) in order to guarantee clarity of the image after re-sizing. We have done everything from family portraits to personal photography. Call us today for more information.
Protection from the sun is essential to preserve the art for long term endurance. Ultraviolet rays, including sunlight are harmful to your art. All imaged tile and stone should be placed where direct and continual sunlight cannot reach it. If mounted in direct sunlight, UV rays will eventually fade the colors and in time destroy the art. Generally speaking, art should not be placed outside.
At Florentine Artworks we can image most types of tile. the most popular and commonly being travertine stone which comes in different varieties and colors. Typically we recommend a lighter travertine stone as this allows for the image quality and clarity to better stand out. A tumbled travertine stone will give your kitchen or bathroom a natural rustic look.
We hope you enjoy our website and find the perfect piece of art to make your home something special!
