Quality Materials Information

Photography All photography is shot by a commercial photographer. The prints are therefore, first generation prints, suitable for framing. This applies to these categories: $4.00 notecards and all larger matted and/or framed photos. They are the truest color matching the original icons. Some less expensive cards and a few of the smaller matted pictures are second generation prints made by a commercial printer's shop.

Matting The photgraphs are all matted by hand. The notecards are assembled individually by hand. Some images have two colors of matting, designated with a (dm) in the code number indicating that they are double matted.

Frames Metal frames are heavy metal of high quality. Each image is matted and framed by hand. Wood frames are of single grain, solid wood.

Plaques The plaques are laminated over high quality photographs in a slightly matte finish.


Sts. Joachim and Ann
These have been called, "Two turtledoves" in the Eastern Liturgy. As the parents of Mary, the Mother of God, theirs was a special calling in grace, and their icon honors the blessedness of the vocation of marriage. Mary was conceived, immaculately, in the womb of St. Ann, her mother. The Gospel of Thomas is a second century account of the angelsí announcements to both Ann, in the garden, and Joachim as high priest in the temple, of a fruitfulness in childbearing, that played a key role in Salvation History. The human mother of the Savior, had parents who conceived her without original sin, in what is called the Immaculate Conception.
