Fine Art Prints
Many of the images that you see in my galleries can be purchased as prints. Images not available are marked (*) in their description in the gallery. If there is an image that you are interested in, please contact me and I will let you know what the price would be for your particular requirement and the size of the print that you would like.
Images are printed using archival quality inks on 100% cotton rag fibre, acid free, ph neutral fine-art heavyweight smooth matt paper, or 100% acid free baryta art paper with a soft lustre finish. The choice of paper is influenced by the nature of the image being printed, and what I think looks best. If you have a preference, then please let me know.
The printed image will be very slightly oversized, so that there will be no white peeping through if you are using standard window mounts. This will also give you or your framer some 'spare' to work with. There is also a white border round the image to assist in mounting the image; this border can be trimmed to suit your particular framing needs.
MOUNTING AND FRAMING CONSIDERATIONS
It is always advisable to window mount photographs so that the image surface is not in contact with the glass. This prevents the image surface from sticking to the glass which can happen over time. You should use an acid free board or mount.
The boards and window mounts that I use are by Daler Rowney and Canson, but similar products are available from other manufacturers. Your framer will know what to use.
Many of my prints will fit a standard window mount aperture as follows:
Size 12in by 18in will fit a standard metric window mount such as Canson or Gerstaecker 50cm by 70cm mount with an aperture of 285mm by 435mm giving a 7mm overlap all-round. This mount fits a metric 50cm by 70cm frame.
- Size 8in by 12in will fit standard imperial window mount such as a Daler Rowney 12in by 16in mount with an aperture of 203mm by 304mm giving zero overlap. In this case, the image is a little bigger than 8in by 12in to allow the mount to overlap the image so there is some adjustment.
Alternatively, custom mounts are relatively inexpensive and can be made to fit any frame size and window size required. Some of my images are not a standard size and will, in any case, require a custom made window mount.
Generally, prices are dependent on the size of the print.
As a guide, a 12in x 18in print will be around £65; an 8in x 12in print will be £45. Postage and packing to UK addresses is included. I will ship worldwide - please ask for a quote.
Your print is supplied un-mounted with a certificate of authenticity and guidance notes for unpacking and mounting your print. All prints are shipped rolled and protected in a sturdy cardboard tube to ensure their arrival with you, in the same condition that they left my studio.
