Prints - Detailed Specs


Here's everything you've ever wanted to know about my prints!

All prints are open edition, which means that there is no limit on how many are made.

All types, including prints on paper, canvas, cards and puzzles, are printed to the highest quality by professionals specialising in fine art printing. This is not something I try to do myself at home - I use a professional printing company called Prodigi to reproduce, print, pack and post your print. 

Unframed Print on Fine Art Paper

  • Size: The size ordered is equal to the paper size, with a thin border surrounding the print.
  • Printing method: Giclée. This means your print is a gallery-quality reproduction of my original painting. It is fade-proof, high resolution, and highly pigmented. You’ll get all the colour and tone variations, details and visual texture of the original painting and your print will look fantastic, forever.
  • Paper type: Premium fine art paper.
  • Paper brand: Hahnemühle German Etching. This is a traditional mould-made copperplate printing paper, complete with an inkjet coating designed especially for fine art prints.
  • Paper material: 100% alpha-cellulose. This means it is made from 100% high-grade wood pulp and is durable and sturdy.
  • Paper weight: 310gsm (grams per square metre). This tells you how thick and sturdy the paper will be. For reference, office printing paper has a gsm of 80, while business cards will be 350gsm.
  • Paper finish: Paper has a velvety matte finish. A matte finish gives you the closest feel of an original painting, while accurately reproducing its colours and tones without any glare. 
  • Paper texture: Paper has a textured surface. This gives depth and emulates the textured canvas from the original painting.
  • Paper colour: Paper has a warm, natural white hue.
  • Environmental credentials:
    • FSC certified timber for the paper and packaging. This means it was sourced from sustainable forests.
    • Vegan certified paper.
    • Printed using water-based inks. This means the ink used does not contain the toxic chemicals and plastics that solvent-based inks do.
  • Packaging: Prints sized A4 or smaller will come in an envelope; all other sizes will come in a cardboard tube with recycled plastic ends.
  • Delivery: Your print will be made in the Prodigi studio closest to you (UK, NL, USA or AU). This is greener and faster, helping to avoid global supply chain hold-ups or customs problems.

    Framed Print on Fine Art Paper

    • Size: The size ordered is equal to the paper size, with a thin border surrounding the print. The frame is 0.8" (2cm) thick, so for the total size including the frame, add this to the print dimensions.
    • Frame: 
      • Colour: black
      • Material: Timber with satin laminated finish and perspex glazing.
      • Delivered to you ready to hang. See the photo of the back of the frame below.

      • Paper finish: Paper has a matte finish. A matte finish gives you the closest feel of an original painting, while accurately reproducing its colours and tones without any glare. 
      • Paper texture: Paper has a smooth, clean surface. This shows up detail most accurately and consistently. A smooth textured paper is the best choice for a print that's exhibited and viewed under glass or perspex, allowing for excellent detail and contrast.
      • Paper colour: Paper has a warm, natural white hue.
      • Environmental credentials:
        • FSC certified timber for the paper, frame and packaging. This means it was sourced from sustainable forests.

      • Canvas Weight: 400gsm (grams per square metre). This means it is a high-quality heavyweight canvas that will be robust, durable and hold its shape.
      • Canvas Design: The canvas frame is finger jointed to resist warping and milled with a curved profile; minimising contact with the face of the canvas.
      • Canvas Finish: The canvas is hand-finished, ensuring that each corner fold is perfectly smooth and tight. The canvas is museum wrap, which means the edges are finished white with the artwork printed on the front of the canvas.
