Art Prints + Frame Info


Giclée art prints

Our art prints are professionally printed giclée art prints. They are printed in New Zealand on archival paper with archival ink. The paper we use is a fine art paper, 270gsm weight, made from 100% cotton. It has a smooth matte surface and is certified to last over 100 years. All our art prints are made-to-order to prevent waste. 

 

Framing

Art print paper sizes confirm to standard A-series paper sizes and will fit the corresponding frame size. Framed prints offered are framed without a mat.

Art prints incorporate a 3mm unprinted border (which is only visible on unframed prints with coloured backgrounds), that will be the hidden border area of the print when it is framed.

All frames have acid-free backing boards and standard 2mm glass. A4 frames have hanging teeth. A3 - A1 frames are traditionally strung with d-rings.

The raw oak frames are natural uncoated wood so please note that they will darken slightly over time. Special glass (non-reflective or UV), or archival mats and backing boards are available on request. All frames are taped neatly on the back for a professional finish.

 

Framing care

To protect art prints from fading, please take care to avoid direct sun light when choosing a place to hang your art. Art prints should not be exposed to extreme changes in temperature or high-moisture areas, such as bathrooms, where your art may be susceptible to condensation buildup.

 

Packaging

All art prints are packaged and mailed very carefully with sturdy cardboard protection.

Sizes A4, A3 and A2 are shipped flat. A1 unframed art prints and above are packaged in archival sleeves and shipped rolled in a large protective cardboard tube.

Framed art prints are packaged with protective cardboard corners and stiff card over the glass, bubble-wrapped and then delivered in a custom box.

A4 Prints are packaged in an acid-free archival clear cello sleeve inside a sturdy card folder, and shipped in a bend-proof mailer.
