Ink & Paper
We print to a 300 gsm 100% cotton rag or a Premium Lustre photographic stock using genuine Epson Ultrachrome Pro inks on the latest Epson P20070 printer. Your giclee print will be dry-mounted to an acid-free 5 mm foam board using an archival adhesive film.
Our mouldings are made from locally sourced sustainable Australian hardwood. The timber is milled, hand sanded and painted. We never use off the shelf or prefabricated products. You can be assured of the highest quality gallery grade materials.
The 3mm Plexiglass we use is museum grade. It is lighter than glass, helps to protect your work from UV damage and also has the added advantage of being shatterproof. Not the cheaper flimsy plastic product you might find in store-bought kit frames.
Your frame will be carefully hand-assembled in our Melbourne studio. It will be sealed using framer’s wax tape and wired so it is ready to hang on your wall. It will arrive in under 2 weeks, carefully wrapped in our custom made, bump-proof packaging.
