Unframed print | Specs

Size: The size ordered is equal to the paper size, not the print size. There is a 1.5-2cm border around 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: The smallest print size will come in an envelope; while the largest print size will come in a cardboard tube with recycled plastic ends.

Delivery: Your print will be made in the print 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.
