Welcome to my print shop

 

My  goal is to create environmentally conscious art. For me, good stewardship includes packaging and distribution.

 

Printing Company:

I am using The Print Space for prints on demand and the creation of hand-finished prints, as they are able to offer a carbon neutral print service, avoid plastic and use recycled and recyclable materials. They can ship anywhere in the world and have a printing facility in Germany, reducing cost and travel miles for EU orders.

You can learn more about the printers here.

 

 

Paper:

Prints are available as either Giclée prints (high-quality archival inkjet prints using fade-resistant, archival, pigment-based inks) or C-type professional photo prints (C-type printing exposes light sensitive silver halide paper to an LED or laser light source and puts the print through a conventional chemical developing process).

 

The archival life of a print is 80 years for Giclée prints and 40 years for photographic prints if kept out of direct sunlight and behind glass.

 

Both types of paper produce very detailed, accurate prints. The image below shows a Giclée paper (Hahnemühle German Etching Paper) and a C-type paper (Fuji Flex) on the original "Origins" artwork:

 

 

From an environment perspective, I like to work with Hahnemühle paper due to the company's environmental policy. All Hahnemühle papers are vegan.

My favourite papers are Hahnemühle German Etching Paper and Hahnemühle Bamboo. Both papers are free from optical brightening agents and highly resistant to ageing. 

 

The popular German Etching paper is a heavyweight (350 gsm) natural white cotton art paper.  It has a  finely textured surface which helps to bring out details and creates depth and a three-dimensional effect.

 

The Bamboo paper is the world's first digital fine art inkjet paper made from 90% bamboo fibres and 10% cotton, ensuring a resource-saving paper production. It weighs 290gsm and has a matt finish and a smooth texture. It also produces highly detailed prints. The paper tone is a warm creamy yellow, which would only be noticable if you order a print with a border. The image shows a strip of Hahnemühle Bamboo laid on the original "Encounter" painting.

The Print Space offer 7 paper options for Giclée prints and 4 papers for C-type digital photo prints. If you would like the print on a different paper than the one I have chosen, please contact me before ordering. There is no extra cost for changing the paper.

 

Availability of prints:

The shop only shows a selection of potential prints. ​I always take photographs of my finished paintings, artistic process and my experiments. It is therefore generally possible to create a print from any of my original work or artistic experiments. Just contact me if there is something you would like as a print.

Prints are printed on demand. An order is placed with the printers once you have paid for a print. 

Signing of prints:

Prints that are sent directly from the printers are unsignedUnsigned prints allow for a speedier fulfilment of an order and save travel miles. (It also enables you to decide which way around you want to hang a print. For many of my prints there is more than one right way up.!)

 

On request, I can e-mail you a certificate that confirms the title of the print you have ordered, the chosen paper and the print size.

 

Cost of prints:

Prints are charged by size. Prints start from as little as £32 for a 20cm x 20cm or 8” x 8” print.

I will make suggestions for suitable print sizes for my work. However, you can request a different size up to the maximum print size recommended by the printers. Please contact me to discuss your requirements. Once we have come to an agreement, I will then add the print in the desired size to the print shop for you to purchase.

Shipping:

Shipping of a standard print from the printers directly to your home is free of charge, wherever you are in the world unless you require a specialist delivery service.

Custom charges:

Any custom charges would have to be paid for by the buyer. 

 

Please note that there are no custom charges for EU customers for prints sent out directly by The Print Space as The Print Space has printing facilities in Germany. (There would likely be charges for bespoke hand-finished prints, as the print would be printed and shipped from England. As regulations are still unclear following Brexit, hand-finished prints are currently only available for customers in the UK.)

BESPOKE SERVICE - Hand-finished prints (currently only available for UK customers)

Hand-finishing enhances the 3D effect of a print and creates a unique piece of art in its own right. You can request a hand-finished version of any of my prints for items send to a UK address.

The additional cost of the print would depend on the size of the print and the amount of work required and starts from as little as £20 extra for a 20cm x 20cm (8" x 8") print.

Shipping of the hand-finished prints is free of charge,  unless you require a specialist delivery service.  

Bespoke prints have to be paid for in advance. I would order the print to be worked on from The Print Space, add the finishing touches and then send it out to you. (On request, I can e-mail you a photo of the finished print for your final approval before sending out the print.)

 

Please give as much notice as possible if you need the item by a particular date to avoid disappointment. It can take up to a week to get a print from the printers. Then there is the time to work on the print and make sure that it has dried properly before sending it out to you...

I can sign the print and add a personal message on request

Check the print shop for any hand-finished Giclée prints that are already available and can therefore be shipped straight away.
