ALL THE LITTLE DETAILS Frames All prints are available un-framed, framed with no matt, or framed with a matt. The matt is the plain border added around the print between the print and the wooden frame. Adding a matt means the total size of the framed print will be larger. (Eg. An A4 size print with a matt added fits an A3 size frame). All framing is professionally made to size by a local framers here in Hawkes Bay. Therefore framing materials are of high quality and your print will be treated with the utmost care. Choosing the framed option means you save time and hassle arranging framing yourself and you can be sure your framing will be of a high standard. Alternative Display Options While cheap frames can be bought from large homeware stores please be aware that the quality of finishing is often poor and materials are not of high quality. Matts included with cheap frames are usually a cold bleached white card which doesn’t compliment the carefully selected fine art paper surface of the artwork. I would highly recommend having your print professionally framed, or for a cheaper option, source ready-made frames from a frame store. Alternatively buy a cheap frame but have a framer fit a quality mat to it that matches the artwork. Or forget the frame and go ahead and get creative with the washi tape! Packaging and Shipping Prints are packaged in sealable cellophane slips with recycled board backing to prevent bending. All prints are shipped between stiff corrugated board to prevent damage. I aim to use reusable and recyclable materials where possible – please do your bit by recycling at the other end!
