CHOOSING YOUR PRINT

All art prints and canvases are made to order, so you can customise your print by size, mounting or framing and laminating for protection.

All the photographic papers have been chosen for their suitability and performance with the particular type of art print/mounting required. They have been specifically developed for accurate photo reproduction and are also acid-free, making them highly resistant to ageing, as well as being resistant to the yellowing effects of light, to ensure your print will give years of enjoyment.

Paper Options

Each paper has been selected to offer the best suitability and performance for the type of display option.

Mount Options

Board Mounted Wall Art

Board Mounts

Your chosen print mounted onto 2mm, 100% virgin fibre board giving an exceptionally light and cost-effective mount for creating a beautiful flat print prior to framing. The board has a slightly textured surface area and is acid free, so you can rest assured the print will maintain its colour and captivating quality over a vast period of time.

All board mounted prints are supplied with velcro pads for a quick and simple solution to fixing the print onto a wall. For a completely flat finish, it is recommended to frame these board mounted prints due to their lack of complete rigidity.

Dibond Mounted Wall Art

Dibond Mounts

With a 3mm thickness, the versatile Dibond mount consists of a slim aluminium panel mounted on to a strong, light and flat black acrylic base. Dibond photo mounted prints lie beautifully flat, with durable and rigid qualities.

The image is flush mounted for a perfectly smooth seal and the edging is finished by hand to ensure every order is to the highest standard. This is a non flexible material and comes fitted with a subframe ready for you to hang - adjustable wall hangers are concealed within the subframe and will attached easily to any hook or screw. The hangers allow for 10mm of adjustment both vertically and horizontally so you can be sure your image is perfectly straight - and provides a lighter alternative to traditional framing.

Framed Wall Art

Framed

A classic all-wood frame which is smooth to the touch and has a flat, square profile and satin finish designed to be complimentary for modern interior trends.

These handmade frames are available in either black, white or natural.

The mount is conservation grade, FSC certified 100% acid free and will not discolour or fade with age.

Glazed with Acrylic Plexiglass which provides increased UV protection, is extremely robust and offers less glare than float glass.

Additional Options

Canvas Wall Art

Canvas Prints

Your image printed onto Hahnemühle Monet 410gsm, 100% pure cotton archival canvas using professional printing methods to ensure the highest possible quality and resolution with a 100+ year colour guarantee. Hand stretched over a 38mm deep made-to-measure knotless pine stretcher bar frame guaranteed not to warp or bow, that is milled with a curved profile to minimise contact with the face of the canvas and prevent unsightly impression marks and surface cracking. Complete with a layer of matt varnish to protect the surface of your print.

Optional Image Lamination

Lamination

Laminating your mounted print ensures it is protected from scratches, fingerprints and UV rays. Laminate is a protective film that is applied on to your print and will be either Gloss or Satin finish to match the chosen paper.

Optional Borders

An image border is useful if you are purchasing just a print to frame at home as this reduces the amount of image 'lost' due to the slight overlap from a mount/frame. A border on a Dibond mounted print can also give the 'effect' of a frame. The border options available on the website are shown below - however if you would like a different colour simply let me know once you have received your order confirmation.

  • No Border
  • 5mm White Border
  • 1/4" White or Black Border
  • 1/2" White or Black Border

If a border is chosen your overall print size will remain the same.
