are made using giant-format digital printers (sometimes called "giclee" printers) which are capable of producing the sharpest resolution of any current printing system. These are not to be confused with cheap prints or posters.
We use very high quality papers: Matte 230gsm fine art paper for small, open edition prints, a heavy (310 gsm) velvet-surface, acid-free fine art paper is our standard for larger digital print. For etching and silkscreen we use 300 gsm Hahnemulle and Arches papers. These are all amongst the finest papers in the World. Our canvas prints are made using matte surface 350 gsm cotton canvas. If supplied gallery wrapped or framed, the timber is sustainably resourced.
We only use archival "pigment" inks for digital prints. For etchings, we use traditional linseed oil and lamp-black based ink. A formula that's virtually unchanged for centuries.
Some images are available as either a paper or canvas print rolled up in a tube which offers you and your local picture framer ultimate flexibility. Otherwise, we offer the following options:
STANDARD FRAMED PRINTS
We use these for smaller, open edition prints. Nice finish, ready to hang, straight out of the box. Acrylic safety "glass". Print has a white border, individually signed and titled in pencil by hand, by the artist. Not supplied with a mount. Good quality at a very competitive price.
HAND-MADE FRAMED PRINTS
These frames are individually hand-made from solid pine, stained matte black. Mounted using very thick natural, unbleached white bevel-cut mount board. Glazed using 2 or 3mm cast acrylic. An optically perfect shatterproof alternative to glass favoured by museums due to its greated safety and UV-protection qualities.
Dimensions / depth of these vary, see the description on each item's ETSY page for exact details.
Ready to hang, straight out of the box. Wrapped around a stretcher (an internal solid wood frame) 38mm deep to give a modern box style effect.
We make our stretchers ourselves at our own workshop, they are much stronger than those generally used in the art trade.
protected with three coats of matte varnish - protects against UV damage and damp environments.
