Paper Thickness

None of the prints & cards are on excessively thick paper but paper that suits their purpose; the greetings cards are sturdy and the prints are on good quality paper without it feeling like cardboard.

Handmade

Each print is individually made to order by hand.

This means each print will have a handmade quality about it: the paper is beautiful, the colours are rich, the finish is original and beautiful.

Equally, a print may have insignificant marks and small imperfections due to the natural characteristics of the materials, as well as the tools and equipment used. This can be a bonus as, in many cases, it enhances the unique characteristics of the print.

Please note:

Print colours may vary from the images seen on screen due to different monitors.

Each print is unique.

Small differences between the prints is what sets them apart from the mass-produced sameness of factory, print-on-demand products in many online shops.

Each print from this studio is individually handled with care from start to finish to produce a piece that can be proudly displayed in any home.

Aftercare

The best way to ensure your print lasts a long time is to frame it and look after it as much as possible: keep it away from extreme temperatures, direct sunlight and damp environments.  Further advice may be available from a framer.
