Prints / About
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). The square prints are designed and cut a few millimetres smaller than the corresponding frame size (inches) for a perfect fit. A quick Google search will return 100's of sites with frames to fit our wall art along with many businesses locally within shopping centres ( modernartframing, Box frames/ framesnow.com.au, framesnow.com.au, frameshop.com.au, Officeworks, Big W, K Mart, Framing Stores).
Our A1, A2 & A3 sizes and square 22, 20, 16, 12 inch designs can be purchased as Giclée prints (pronounced "gee clay") and are a made to order print. The giclée work comes on Hahnemühle 308 gsm rag. The Hahnemühle paper used is 100% cotton archival grade paper. For our giclée work only pigment archival inks are used. The giclée's are a very high quality print and handled as archival products. The Hahnemühle paper used for our giclée prints is not FSC certified.
The lithographic work comes printed on 250 gsm art paper and is FSC certified. All non-giclée work is printed as offset-lithographs & aren't digital prints, they are very high quality print created using a lithographic process. The offset-lithographs are not made to order with usually quicker shipping times. All work comes unframed enabling us to deliver internationally affordably. 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 large diameter 9cm tubes. For all of our prints shipping insurance, tracking and signature upon receipt are included in our shipping rates both nationally & internationally. 😀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 have a slimmer fit mat or custom mat size for your prints when using framing retailers. Commonly A-format frame sizes come with mats that suit a print size down. So an A2 size will fit nicely within an A1 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 work is 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 millimetres 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 shown through our artwork from geometric design through to nature/science themes and gestalt based design.
Interesting point: some of our designed work can be hung different ways either landscape or portrait.
