About Our Prints
All wall art is currently delivered through Australia Post. Our A1 size and square 20 x 20 inch (50cm) designs can come as Giclée prints (pronounced "gee clay"). The giclée work comes printed on Hahnemühle 308 gsm paper. The Hahnemühle paper used is 100% cotton archival grade paper. For our giclée work only pigment inks are used. The Giclée's are a very high quality print. All work comes unframed enabling us to deliver internationally affordably. A format frames along with square inch frames can be bought online and locally very easily. A quick Google search will return 100's of sites with frames to fit our prints. For more expensive or premium framing options (uv glazing with mats) it's best to source a local framing store or retailer.
Framed work with glass glazing can be prone to breakage (shipping companies) and it's quite heavy and large which can significantly increase the shipping costs, particularly internationally. Our wall art comes delivered in postal tubes with care instructions. Our A1 designs come in a large 90 mm diameter tube. The square sizes are rounded down to the closest centimetre however suited for framing with standard square frames in inches. It means that the 20 x 20 inch (50 cm), 16 x 16 inch (40 cm), 12 x 12 inch (30 cm) & 8 x 8 inch (20 cm) square prints will fit nicely being at most a few millimetres smaller than a square frames inch size. In terms of square frames they are commonly built and sized using inches. If our designs were printed using perfect inch sizes they may tear or be too tight for the frames in which they sit. Our landscape/portrait work is a standard A1, A2 & A3 size in which there is no need to slightly adjust the dimensions for printing. Within Australia we use a metric system for printing.
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 also buy custom matting (mat board) online or locally quite affordably for a slimmer fit mat. Commonly A-format frame sizes come with mats that suite a print size down. So an A2 size print will fit nicely within an A1 size 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.
Interesting point: some of our designed work can be hung different ways either landscape or portrait.
