Each frame is hand made using 20 x 30mm wood edging available in Mocha, White and Black with a 2mm acrylic clear face. Acrylic is great as a covering as it is much lighter than glass and much more shatter resistant, but it needs care when cleaning as it is more susceptible to scratches (cleaning should be done with a lint-free cloth). As it is shatter resistant, few picture framers are willing to ship large prints with anything but acrylic. Images are printed on Kodak Professional Premier Endura VC Digital Paper which has an archival life of 200 years, other papers are available upon request.
Frame and matting choices
Premium lustre - Images on lustre paper have higher saturation and are glossier than matte finish papers.
Enhanced matte - Matte paper reduces glare on the image and are generally less contrasty than lustre papers. Matte paper also has more texture to its surface than lustre paper.
Rag photographique (smooth paper) - A cotton-based flat and completely non-reflective paper stock with a higher white point than the standard papers.
Aquarelle rag (textured paper) - A cotton-based paper with a water colour texture. Non-reflective and with a higher white point
I am also more than happy to look at other printing and framing options if you want. This may include different paper, frame or glass (e.g. museum glass) options. Other options may also include using a different professional printer and/or framer BUT the printer that I use seems to be among the best and most reasonably priced that I have found. Other framing sizes are available upon request. If you are unsure, please do not hesitate to ask!
