I make all my own prints to make sure they are of the very highest quality both in terms of the image and the materials used. I use archival quality paper, canvas and pigment-based inks for 50+ years of colour stability.
Prints are made on a satin finish paper and supplied ready too mount and frame. The satin finish suits the photographic image and looks good when framed behind glass.
To make framing as simple as possible, I’ve sized the images to fit readily available off-the-shelf frame sizes to save you cash. The Ribba range from Ikea, for example, look great, are excellent quality and each frame includes a mount board. All you need to do is to tape the print to the back of the mount, reassemble the frame and hang on the wall.
I offer three standard sizes:
Large – to fit a 100cm x 70cm frame (with mount aperture of 70cmx50cm)
Medium – to fit a 70cm x 50cm frame (with mount aperture of 50cmx40cm)
Small – to fit a 50cm x 40cm frame (with mount aperture of 40cmx30cm)
If you have a different sized frame you would like to use – no problem, let me know the dimensions and I’ll make the print the right size to fit perfectly.
The secret of a good canvas is finding a reliable way to keep the canvas stretched crisply and tightly at all times so the image does not wrinkle or sag. To achieve this, I use a product called “Wunderbars” to make the stretching frame. These bars have spring loaded coners and so the canvas always stays tightly stretched and doesn’t sag like many canvas prints which rely on wedges to maintain tension.
Standard sizes depend on the shape of the image.
For panoramic images they are:
Large – 150cm x 50cm x 3.5cm
Medium – 120cm x 40cm x 3.5cm
Small – 90cm x 30cm x 3.5cm
For regular images they are:
Large – 75cm x 50cm x 3.5cm
Medium – 60cm x 40cm x 3.5cm
Small – 45cm x 30cm x 3.5cm
However, you can order a canvas at any size or shape that suits your hanging space.
