Sizing, Delivery and Print Care
All prints are UK A-Series and arrive with a border already built in so the artworks, including the borders are as follows:
A3: 297 x 420mm (11.7" x 16.5")
A2: 420 x 594mm (16.5" x 23.4")
A1: 594 x 841mm (23.4" x 33.1")
A0: 841 x 1189mm (33" x 46.8")
If you would like a bespoke size, please get in touch via email@example.com . We do not recommend going smaller than A3 as some of the intricacy of the artworks will be lost.
A3 prints are usually in stock and ready to ship.
We aim to dispatch all orders within two working days of purchase as long as they are in stock. We take pride in the quality of our artworks and their presentation, however, in order to be able to sustain ourselves and grow, the majority of our artworks sized A2 land larger are printed to order.

Mounting and framing guidelines
As all the prints are recognised as giclée quality, they will last for up to an amazing 200 years without any colour fading.
You have the power to get creative when framing your print, but bear in mind the following before proceeding:
Handling: Try to handle the print as little as possible and, when you do, always make sure your hands are clean and that you support the print fully, as the paper can pick up dirt or crease easily. Although large prints are often sent rolled, try to avoid leaving them rolled for any length of time.
Mounting: Any mount board used, both in front of and behind the print, should be acid-free and not contain any un-purified wood-pulp. Mounts that have a brown core are usually cheap, acidic, wood-pulp which can cause staining of the paper in a short space of time. Conservation board refers to chemically-purified wood-pulp which is acid-free. A better board still is Museum board which is made from 100% cotton fibre.
Framing: If you want to display your print in a custom built frame then we recommend using a framer who is Fine Art Trade Guild (FATG) Commended or Certified. They will usually have a sticker with this information in their window.
