Contributing Prints to
McClain's Catalog and Gallery
Because we specialize in relief printmaking supplies, we accept relief prints to show in the gallery. Relief prints include woodblock prints, Moku Hanga (Japanese style woodblock), linocuts, engravings and monotypes or monoprints. Relief photopolymer images are also accepted. We do not accept screen prints, lithographs, etchings, mezzotints or prints using other intaglio processes.
Work is given recognition but there is no payment. The copyrights to all images belong to their respective artists. McClain's will not use the submitted art for any purpose other than display in our catalog or on our web site without the written permission from the artist and we will not release the material in whole or in part to any person or company.
Space in the catalog is limited so only one print per person is published there, while up to three prints per person are put in the online Gallery. McClain's reserves the right to decide which prints to accept for publication in our catalog and to show in the online gallery.
IMPORTANT: Please send your name and address; the title of the print (or prints); the size of the image; the technique used; and, if you wish it to be included, your email or web site address.
If you would like McClain's to return any material you send us, please include a stamped, padded, self-addressed envelope of appropriate size.
To be considered for inclusion in the next year's catalog, please submit your work by the end of November.

Save the file name as: your last name first name title.jpg
Size: 1000 x 1000 pixels (14" x 14" or 35.5 x 35.5cm) maximum, or around 1MB.

We also accept high-quality photocopies.
We are happy to return original prints that arrive with a stamped, self-addressed padded envelope. Otherwise, these prints are saved and shown at schools, workshops and trade shows. Send your original prints to McClain's, PO Box 230759, Tigard, OR 97281-0759 USA
