Tell me about the prints...
Our Giclée prints are produced to the highest archival standards on superior heavyweight art paper using the finest, pigment-based, fine art inks. Our paper of choice is Hahnemühle 'German Etching': a pure cotton etching board which is velvety smooth with a fine surface texture, capable of holding more ink and capturing an extended range of tones. The prints are created using Epson UltraChrome K3 inks, air dried, and subsequently treated with an invisible UV-protection for archival longevity. This combination of high quality paper and ink results in prints with strong colours and deep blacks that feel rich and high in contrast. With its weight and strong texture the German Etching paper gives each print a crafted, handmade feel.
What is a Giclée print?
The A-size of the print refers to the overall paper size. The dimensions of the paper which the images are printed on are as follows:
A2: 420mm x 594 mm (16.5 x 23.4 in)
A3: 297mm x 420 mm (11.7 x 16.5 in)
A4: 210mm x 297 mm (8.3 x 11.7 in)
A5: 148mm x 210 mm (5.8 x 8.3 in)
What are the dimensions of the 'A-size' papers?
The images are printed within the overall paper dimensions to allow for a white border and the signature, outside of the image area. The images have varying dimensions depending on the camera used and so if the exact image dimensions are required prior to purchase, please get in touch via the contact form, stating the title of the image and the size you are interested in and we will supply the image area dimensions to you.

How will my prints arrive?
A5 and A4 prints are shipped flat in gift boxes. The larger sizes, A3 and A2, are shipped in sturdy cardboard tubes to prevent them getting damaged in transit. Both the boxes and tubes are shipped with an outer layer of packaging. This means the box or tube remains clean, and postage-label-free, should you wish to give the print as a gift.
I want to order a print larger than A2. Is this possible?
It is possible. Please get in touch with us via the contact form, stating the title of the image that you would like to purchase and the size you would like it, and we will respond to your request.
All prints are produced to order. We endeavour to despatch an order within 5 working days or less, and all prints are shipped via trackable Royal Mail services. You will receive an email once the order has been shipped, containing your tracking details. For orders shipped to a UK address, delivery will be next working day via Special Delivery (signature required). For orders shipped outside the UK, delivery can be expected within 7 working days from despatch date.
How long will it take to receive my order?
Due to their larger size, A3 and A2 prints are shipped in a heavy duty cardboard tube to ensure they arrive in perfect condition. Once removed from the tube, lay the print on a clean surface and allow it to unfurl and flatten naturally. This will then be ready for framing. We advise against putting anything heavy on the prints to speed things up as this could result in damage to the print.
