Prints / About
All print work is original, designed and made in Australia. All work subject to copyright and in some cases design registration. Our A1 size and square 22 x 22 inch (55cm) designs can be purchased as Giclée prints (pronounced "gee clay"). The giclée work comes printed on Hahnemühle 308 gsm rag. The Hahnemühle paper used is 100% cotton archival grade paper. For our giclée work only pigment inks are used. The giclée's are a very high quality print. The non-giclée prints are a high quality print which come on 250 gsm art paper. All work comes unframed enabling us to deliver internationally affordably. A format frames along with square inch frames can be bought online and locally very easily & very affordably along with premium options from select retailers (uv glazing with mats). A quick Google search will return 100's of sites with frames to fit our prints. Large framed work with glass glazing can be prone to breakage (shipping companies) and it's quite heavy/large which can significantly increase the shipping costs, particularly internationally.
Our designs come delivered in tubes via Australia Post. Signature is required upon receipt. The A1, 22 inch (55cm) and 20 Inch (50 cm) size prints come delivered in large 90 mm diameter tubes. With some frames the mat can be quite large, our designs are created to look great with or without a mat and it may be the case of removing a larger mat if it doesn't suit your tastes. You can also buy custom matting (mat board) online or locally quite affordably for a slimmer fit mat. Commonly A-format frame sizes come with mats that suit a print size down. So an A2 size print will fit nicely within an A1 size frame with mat. It's up to our customers to decide based on personal preferences. This is also the case with our square wall décor and corresponding square inch frames.
The prints are created in vector format using digital based design applications which enable us to create prints that can scale up to larger sizes and scale down to smaller sizes. Some of our print work uses millimeters and points or points of points for highly detailed design. The graphics tools are set to these units of measurement for more precise work when required. A wide variety of interests are show through our prints from geometric design through to nature prints and gestalt based artwork.
Interesting point: some of our designed work can be hung different ways either landscape or portrait.
