Quality Statement



We produce most of our artwork collection, unless otherwise stated,
in our own print lab and focus highly on quality and durability. We work
with Epson printers and inks due to their leading role in the art
digital art reproduction industry. We choose archival  and photographic
papers that fit the artworks style and color scheme.


The artworks in the gallery section are all high quality durable
archival prints. They should not be mistaken for posters, these you can
find our shop section for a more affordable price.


Limited edition art prints offer you a part of an original artwork
that existed before in a digital file only. This can be a digitally
created artwork or a scan or photograph of a handmade work. A digital
created artwork can exist in the physical world only as a print and the
edition level states the prints share of the work. For example, a 25
edition released artwork makes the piece owned by 25 people only. You
could say each buyer owns 4% of the artwork. The digital file remains
with the artist and is never released as printed artwork ever again.


A scanned or photographed handmade artwork give people a chance to
buy into the work by having a share of it's reproduction; a limited
edition archival print. The types of artwork are often too costly for
people to purchase and in this way get a chance to own a piece of it via
this medium.

Framing your artwork


There are many different ways to frame your art, this is the
customization of your own personal piece or edition. The first best tip is to source your best (quality VS costs) local framer and have them inform you on their suggestions and costs. But here are some of our favorites..


1.    Floating Vitrine Style
Have the artwork framed in a bigger frame then the artwork itself. Leave space between the artwork and glass. Use acid free art tape to stick the artwork to the backing board. You know see the artwork hanging
freely in a vitrine style setting, shadows playing on the backing board.


2.    Classic Passepartout
Have it framed with a frame of your choice and choose a Passe Partout size and colour to fit the artwork. A dark gray piece can have a gray toned Passe Partout hold the piece inside the frame to make the piece
more dramatic, any colour picked out of the piece’s colour pallet can
lift it or give a whole new look and feel.


3.    Plexiglass Sandwich
A method used a lot in the photography industry but working very strong with many of the graphic pieces we hold in our collection is to have the photographic print sandwiched between plexiglass and Dibond. No border frame, artwork bleeding of the edges. An aluminum hanging profile is stuck to the back and makes the piece float of your wall.

Hanging artwork


Wash and dry your hands before handling the artwork. The print’s
surface is extremely sensitive to dirt, grease and moisture. When
lifting an unframed piece of art, hold the sides with your thumbs and
index fingers. Make sure you hold the piece straight, to avoid creases
and other damage.

Some pointers;>
1. Never hang art in direct sunlight, colours will fade.
2.
Hang various artworks in clusters by theme or colour scheme.
3.
When aligning artwork horizontally use the centers to level with.
4.
Pictures should hang just above eye level when viewed standing. Use 2 screws for each panel. This will ensure they are flush with the wall(it is not recommended to use hanging wire).
5.
Consider lighting to emphasize your arrangement. When lighting is
directed to the painting(s), it commands even more attention.
6. Pay attention to "balance" in your entire room. Be careful not to put
everything in one part of a room. Leaving the other walls bare will
throw the balance of the entire room off.
7. If the artwork is made of few pieces they should be close enough to each other to relate, but leave a little breathing room. Use a measuring tape to be sure that the distance between several pictures that will hang in a row is equal.
8.
Relate art to wall size. Choose smaller paintings for narrow walls and large-scale paintings for big wall spaces.
9.
Relate art to furniture size. When hanging a painting over a sofa or
other furniture, make sure the painting is no wider than the furniture.
Choose smaller paintings for narrow walls and large-scale paintings for big wall spaces.
10.
To keep your pictures hanging straight, take a piece of mounting putty and place it in the corner of
the picture between the picture and the wall. You should never have to straighten the picture again!
