Will the Colour Be Accurate?
These prints are printed on an 8 colour printer and have very accurate colour. However, all printers are different and colours can vary. We recommend you order one print to start to review the colour prior to ordering multiple units.
What Stock Should I Choose?
We recommend the Velvet Fine Art paper for watercolours and designs where colours are more muted, and the Hot Press paper for photo graphics or applications requiring vibrant colour.
I Don't See the Size I Need
We can trim to any size, however prices are based on sheet size to minimize wastage. Please order the next size up that fits your artwork. Our maximum size is 16" x 20".
Handle with Care
These archival prints and paper stocks are very fragile and need to be handled with care to avoid damaging the corners or surface of the print.
Will the Colour Fade?
Our fine art prints are produced with archival inks and papers, meaning the colour will not fade. However, like any fine art print, exposure to direct UV / sunlight will fade colour over time.
Are the Paper Stocks Acid Free?
Each stock description denotes wether it is acid free - currently the Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper 19mil / 260GSM is 100% cotton rag, buffered and acid free
