Cutting and packaging

Paper print

Prints on paper are rolled in a tube with care, in a protective cover.  

Framed prints includes a matt. A matt is a stiff white board which is cut on a precision cutting machine. It fits the frame and covers the white border of the print.  It prevents the print from touching the glass, stops the print moving in the frame and enhances the overall effect

Canvas print

Canvas prints without stretchers are shipped rolled in a tube with a protective cover.

Canvas prints can as well be mounted on wooden stretchers specially made for your print size before being carefully packed.

But feel free to ask us a quotation for any custom size. We are here for you.

The sizes are the size of the print, without frame; for a print on Canson paper with frame and matboard add 3 in (8 cm) to each side.
