About Prints and Print Mediums

All prices indicated in store are inclusive of VAT . Prints are signed and dated.

Please note that colours of the prints may differ slightly to what appears on screen as colours appear differently on different screens.

Prints on Photographic Lustre Paper:

This is our personal favorite print medium. The prints are made on Epson large format printers, the standard for high quality inkjet printing, resulting in superior quality and precise detail. Images are printed on premium archival paper (which means that they will not deteriorate when kept in appropriate conditions, having a life span of hundreds of years)

Prints can be framed to your preference. Please try avoid re-rolling prints into the tube that they were delivered in as this can damage the print if done too often. Images will flatten over time or clean books can be laid on the prints to flatten faster.

 

Décor Prints :

Décor prints are done through Orms Print Room in Cape Town, whom I believe are South Africa’s leading print solutions.

1) Stretched Canvas:

Canvas prints are stretched on a 30mm frame and are ready to hang straight onto the wall with the frame. Printed on a satin canvas of 350g/m2, this option is great for images with a lot of black. The canvas is water resistant and printed on the Epson Stylus Pro 30610 using Epson UltraChrome eco-solvent inks (safe for home use). The inks used are archival and guarantee longevity, however the canvas is not. If kept out of the sun and in appropriate conditions, canvas prints can still last up to 70-100 years. Canvas’ can be cleaned with a dry, soft cloth.

2) Metal Prints:

Images are printed directly on dibond ® with a brushed aluminium finish. Printed on 3mm dibond, black and white images are recommended and no white ink is used. A Swiss Q Flatbed Printer is used with Sericol solvent inks. The inks used are not archival but through simulated testing can last up to 75 years if kept out of direct sunlight and in appropriate conditions. Prints are ready to hang as they are attached to a sub frame giving them the appearance that it floats 25mm away from the wall.

3) Wood Prints:

Images are printed on 9 mm thick maple-finish plywood. The grain and colour of the wood are visible through the image. Images with large areas of white are recommended as no white ink is used, which will expose the wood grain and colour. A Swiss Q Flatbed Printer is used with Sericol solvent inks. The inks used are not archival but through simulated testing can last up to 75 years if kept out of direct sunlight and in appropriate conditions. Prints are ready to hang as they are attached to a wooden hanging mechanism giving them the appearance that it floats 25mm away from the wall.

4) Perspex Print:

Images are reverse printed onto the back of 2mm Perspex (acrylic glass). Perspex allows natural light to refract through the print. Images with bright colours are recommended. A Swiss Q Flatbed Printer is used with UV cured ink. The inks used are not archival but through simulated testing can last up to 75 years if kept out of direct sunlight and in appropriate conditions. Prints are ready to hang as they are attached to a sub frame giving them the appearance that it floats 25mm away from the wall. Artwork can be cleaned using soapy water or Windolene. Please do not use any solvents.
