    How to display digital artwork?

    The guys at the shop I work at are having a gallery opening soon, and I was wanting to display (hopefully if I can get them done in time) some of the paintings I have been working on lately. But they are digital. So I was wondering, is there a "proper" way to display digital artwork?

    I was thinking about getting them printed onto canvas and displaying them that way, but labeling them in such a way as to inform the viewer that they were created digitaly. Any suggestions?

    You can try sending them to a photolab. A photo print will be clean and can be relatively large(easily 12x18), it's archival and cheap. You can then have it framed. Depending if you digital stuf is meant to emulate paint, you might not want the grain of canvas, it can change your piece a lot.

    I don't know how "proper" it is, but I've done the same thing Qitsune is talking about. Photo labs can produce very nice, accurate prints of your artwork. Just make sure your monitor is properly calibrated!
