Our mission is to stay ahead of these design trends for our customers, and create an ever growing beautiful and unique artwork range. Our range is pretty special in that each design in our premium art print and canvas print range was hand painted first by our talented team of artists, which we then digitise each painting using the same techniques as the National Art Gallery of Victoria (Australia). The high level of detail is amazing, resulting in us being able to sell each artwork as a reproduction print, available as either a canvas or art print print (framed or unframed) where every brush stroke by our team is visible, almost as if it were the original.
You therefore are receiving a piece of art full of detail that looks hand painted, but without the price tag of an original painting. Look up close, and see the amazing detail. See some examples when scroll down below on this page. We also sell a curated and also originally photographed collection of photography prints too.
Art Prints on Paper:
We sell unframed or framed paper art prints (printed on 230gsm matte (not gloss) white art paper), with your choice of buying unframed (which ship rolled in a protective mailer tube to your door), or as custom-framed in gallery-quality timber frames and protected by a shatterproof plexiglass front to ensure longevity. Each 2cm wide frame profile (see a photo below of our colour options) is available in four options: raw natural Tasmanian oak, grain black, smooth white, smooth black genuine timber. Each print is custom made to order in Melbourne, Australia.
Each paper art print has a self white border (look) which is an unprinted border edge around the design for a contemporary look when framed. However, if you want the artwork printed to the edge (no white border) this is no problem, simply list this request in the order comments box at checkout that you want no border appearance.
There is a hanging wire pre-attached on the back of all framed prints, for easy hanging upon arrival, and each framed print arrives in a thick 16cm wide protective carton box for safe transit to you. Where possible we ask to ship our framed prints to a commercial zoned address eg a workplace if possible, somewhere where there is someone Monday to Friday 9-5 business hours to sign or your box (non Po box) and also so we avoid redelivery fees too!
All unframed paper art prints will require framing once you receive the mailer tube with rolled art print/s. We recommend when receive to lay it flat on a clean surface, ideally lay a clean cloth or sheet on a table or clean flat floor. then lay the print down and put another sheet on top - with flat weights, books etc. The print should relax in a day or so so you can put in a frame. We recommend purchase a frame where the print sits up next to the glass or take to a professional framer who can mount the print for you. Unsure? Email or Live Chat us if any q's. We cater to many ready-made frame sizes available at stores such as Ikea, Adairs, Freedom, Officeworks, Kmart, Spotlight and similar stores.
