Prints

There's no better way of bringing a room to life than to have one of our diverse range of beautiful prints hanging on a wall or sitting on your mantelpiece!

We offer our prints with either glossy or matte finish:

 

Matte finish prints apply significant depth to images by drawing out the contrast between the highlights and shadows. Matte prints are highly suited to landscape photographs and images with a high depth of field. Matte paper is not highly reflective and therefore it is suitable to be used as wall art, including behind a glass or plastic frame.

 

Glossy prints produce images with a subtly reflective glaze. This is suited to portraiture and wedding photographs, as the reflective surface can bring a nice glint to skin tones and clothing. As a naturally reflective surface, this type of paper is best observed away from direct sources of light.

Prints are available in a number of different sizes from 4x 4 inches up to 12.2x8 inches. We do not recommend selecting square dimensions for a rectangular print. However, if you do, the image will be cropped in the most suitably artistic way. We may contact you to confirm that you are satisfied with the adjusted image positioning.

Some images may contain a "film strip" consisting of white lines at the top and bottom of the print. This occurs due to the variable dimensions of each image and the method in which the image was first captured.

Images can be expanded to remove the film strip but this will cause small areas to the left and right of the image to be cropped out.

By default, if an image does contain a film strip, it will not be removed. If you would prefer to remove the film strip, please add a note prior to checkout.

Paper prints are not generally considered suitable for use outdoors.

The paper weight is 225 grams per square metre.

Poster Prints

Some images are deserving of special attention! Our poster prints make ideal centrepieces for your interior design goals.

Printed on 200 gram per square metre paper, we offer 7 sizes between 30x20 centimetres and 120x80 centimetres.

 

In addition to the variety of sizes, we offer the following three finishes:

Standard matte appears with a smooth, slightly reflective finish providing the perfect balance between depth and sheen. This paper performs adequately in all lighting conditions but doesn't bring out as much depth as extra matte, or provide as much shine as gloss.

Glossy paper, as with our regular prints provides a subtly reflective glaze. This is suited to portraiture and wedding photographs, as the reflective surface can bring a nice glint to skin tones and clothing. As a naturally reflective surface, this type of paper is best observed away from direct sources of light.

Extra matte paper really absorbs colours! If you are choosing a poster print with vibrant dynamic colours and you want them to stand out as much as possible, this is the paper for you. Because the paper is so absorptive, this is the best choice for brightly lit rooms and provides an extra sharp look.

Poster prints provide a very modern look to images but they are still produced from photographic paper. This means they are not recommended for outdoor use.

Canvas Prints

Providing a classic looking image, Canvas prints are an interior designer's best friend. With improvements in technology, canvas has become an incredibly popular medium for photographic prints. With generic canvas prints available from a wide variety of home improvement stores why not order one of ours for something truly unique!

The printed canvas is stretched over a wooden frame which does result in a slight cropping around the edges. If you choose an image with detailed areas towards the edges, we may contact you to confirm that you are satisfied with the resulting image positioning.

Canvas prints are 2 centimetres deep and are easy to mount on walls. All orders come with fixings to make the hanging process simple and efficient. We also provide the option to add black or white floating frames for all sizes. The attractive frame and resulting 4 centimetre depth, ensures that images really stand out, whether intended as a focal point or backdrop.

As with all of our enlarged prints, sizes range from 20x30 centimetres up through 120x80 centimetres. Due to the type of ink used and the material nature of canvas, we do not recommend canvas prints for outdoor use.

Mounted Prints

Mounted prints are the best way to bring out the colours of our prints. Using a dense but lightweight 5mm PVC, the matte finish prevents reflection and creates a three-dimensional feel to the images. Vibrant, dynamic colours are displayed in ultra-sharp detail and the modern looking durable board ensures longevity.

All orders come with a wall mount to make the hanging process simple and efficient.

As with all of our enlarged prints, sizes range from 20x30 centimetres up through 120x80 centimetres. Due to the type of ink used to print on the plastic, we do not recommend mounted prints for outdoor use.

Aluminium Prints

If you're looking for versatility, aluminium prints are the way to go!

 

The solid 3mm Dibond aluminium is ideal for outdoor use and the semi-gloss finish guarantees durability, helping protect against scratching and marks.

The white underlay ensures that all colours stand out vibrantly making it an ideal choice for both colour and monochrome images alike!

As with all of our enlarged prints, sizes range from 20x30 centimetres up through 120x80 centimetres. All sizes come with a fitted mounting bracket and cushion spacers to ensure the aluminium plate hangs neatly on the wall.

Orders for sizes 100x70cm or 120x80cm include a frame worth £35 free of charge.

Acrylic Prints

Undoubtedly the best quality prints available, acrylic prints provide museum level quality with the highest degrees of sharpness, colour depth and luminosity.

At 5mm thickness, the acrylic provides robust resistance to scratches and other forms of deterioration, whilst maintaining stunning image quality. With a natural looking shine, the durability of acrylic prints allow them to be used in outdoor settings and the supreme quality machined panels ensure that the prints will continue to look outstanding for many years to come!

As with all of our enlarged prints, sizes range from 20x30 centimetres up through 120x80 centimetres. All sizes come with a fitted mounting bracket and cushion spacers to ensure the acrylic panel hangs neatly on the wall.
