Print Information

All my photography on my website is available to purchase as a custom made piece of art. You can have an image made as a Print Only. This gives you the most flexibility as you can then find a frame to your personal liking in your own time. It is also the cheapest way to purchase one of my prints. You can also buy all my photography as a Canvas Print. This is a very popular way to showcase photography and looks great when hung on the wall. Finally, all of my images are for sale as Framed Prints. In my opinion this is the best way to showcase your favourite image and the finished product looks absolutely stunning. For comprehensive details on each type of print mentioned, keep on reading below. Thanks once again for looking at my work, and if you go on to make a purchase then both myself and my family are truly grateful.

Print Only Details

My choice of Photographic & Fine Art Papers have been hand picked for their quality & performance. My print lab uses the latest professional Epson and HP printers, producing high quality print products quickly and efficiently.

When purchasing a ‘Print Only’, you can choose from the following two paper types

  • Smooth matt finish
  • Medium weight 240gsm
  • Bright white paper
  • Versatile, all purpose paper

  • White smooth unglazed gloss surface with a natural base tone
  • Highest quality, maximum longevity
  • Heavyweight 300gsm fine art paper
  • Similar look to silver halide bromide printing
  • Produces incredible detail, rich colours and deep blacks with excellent transitions between dark and light
  • Fibre based paper with specialist coating giving you optical image density and vibrancy
  • Ideal for printing any image, particularly good when printing high contrast images and photography

The current print sizes I offer are in keeping with my 2:3 aspect ratio and are as follows:

300mm x 450mm

400mm x 600mm

500mm x 750mm

600mm x 900mm

Each print has an extra 0.5 inch extra white border to help when mounting with your own frame.  So a 300mm x 450mm print would have an overall paper size of approximately 325mm x 475mm.

Depending on how much I may have cropped an image, some of the larger size options may not be available. This is to keep the image quality to the optimum level.

Print Only orders are normally completed within 2 working days. My printing lab will then dispatch your order with DPD Local/UK Mail depending on the quantity/size of prints ordered.

Canvas Print Details

Canvas Prints are available to buy as a ‘Value Canvas – 20mm Deep’ or ‘Luxury Canvas – 38mm Deep’.  Both types of Canvas benefit from the following:

Canvas Quality

  • Both types have laminate applied to the canvas surface for ultimate protection. No cracking, water resistant, cleanable, scratch proof and UV protection of up to 200 years.
  • All work is printed onto heavyweight canvas producing vibrant colour and superb black & white images.
  • My lab prints using only genuine HP Vivera Inks at 1440 dpi, producing unrivaled image quality and a stunning canvas print.

Frame Quality

  • European pine stretcher bars are knot free to prevent warping.
  • Canvases have galvanized staples to prevent rusting over time.
  • Fixed frames are precision cut, mitred and then underpinned providing a strong robust frame.

The differences between the Value Canvas and the Luxury Canvas are as follows:

Value Canvas – 20mm Deep

  • 20mm Deep European Frames.

Framed Print Details

Having a ready made Framed Print is certainly the best way to showcase photography. Here, my prints are professionally mounted and framed by a certified picture framer based in the UK. I have researched this company for months and have found that their attention to detail and personal care are truly remarkable. Many well known photographers throughout the UK also trust them with their reputation.

Images are printed on your paper of choice. They are then mounted to a backing board with a 50mm iced white mount surrounding the print. The mount is then fitted to your choice of frame. The image will be viewed through crystal clear, premium safety glazing. Hanging fittings will also be supplied.

I currently offer two print papers as well as two frame designs, Natural Oak and Satin Black Hardwood, that should fit in with most light or dark décors.

Epson Enhanced Matt

An economy matt (zero sheen) paper. Great for value minded customers seeking a flat matt surface, It yields highly saturated images, while maintaining excellent highlight and shadow detail. 189gsm weight.

Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Pearl

A premium satin semi gloss photo paper. Photo Pearl is a finely structured PE paper with a pearlescent surface. The vivid and highly detailed colour rendering guarantees photo-realistic prints of impressive quality.  320gsm weight.

The two frame designs we offer are both available in 22mm and 33mm wide sizes.  The approximate dimensions of which are seen below:
