FAQ's

Fine Art Print quality

All prints purchased online are Giclee Fine Art Prints, providing superior detail and colour (also known as pigment or inkjet prints.)  

Every online print is made to order.  We print on a mid-weight, matte finish art paper designed for pigment printing.  It's smooth, acid-free and natural white.

We use Ultrachrome archival inks. 

(You may have seen our laser prints in store, these are standard colour prints, only available in retail stores.)

 

Presentation

All prints include a story about the image.  

Smaller prints (up to A2 size) are sent flat, in a plastic sleeve with backing board. Then packed with corrugated cardboard, inside a mailer bag or wrapped in brown paper. 

Larger prints (A1, A0) are rolled with acid free tissue paper inside a sturdy cardboard tube. 

  

 

Framing

All fine art prints purchased online, can be delivered framed or unframed.  We can take care of the framing for you, or if you'd prefer to do it yourself, we can recommend sourcing them from www.factoryframes.co.nz

Framed prints come with glass, we may be able to offer perspex if preferred, please contact us. 

All frames are made and assembled in New Zealand. 

All framed prints are cardboard cornered, a piece of stiff card is secured over the glass then bubble wrapped and put in a custom fit box and marked with fragile tape.
