Are the prints framed?
The prints are not framed to keep shipping costs low and minimise damage in transit. I usually frame these prints with just a narrow frame and no mount for a minimalist, contemporary look. There are many online framing stores online for custom framing at reasonable prices.
Are the prints archival?
Printed on Fuji Crystal Archive Matte, a robust, matte paper which is acid and lignan free and meets the requirements for age resistance and is specially designed for Fine Art photographic work.
Tell me about the prints
The prints are open editions with my name embossed on the lower right corner of the print. Fuji Crystal Archive Matte is a paper chosen for its beautiful colour rendition and contrast, and perfectly suits my style of photography.
They are printed to order at Spectrum Photographic in Brighton UK and shipped directly to you. Spectrum is a longstanding professional imaging lab specialising in high quality fine art and photographic printing. For more information on Spectrum visit https://spectrumphoto.co.uk.
Tell me about the Greetings Cards
The cards are printed professionally and available currently at size 7"x 5".
The prints can take up to 1 week, usually sooner, as they are professionally printed to order. The cards and other items can take up to a week, but usually less. If a specific time is needed please contact for a more accurate time line.
Why do the print colours look different to my screen?
Screens are often calibrated differently and can therefore be different visually. Many are default calibrations that change with age. My screen is calibrated monthly in line with industry standards to maintain constant colour and brightness.
