About the Prints



Limited Editions

The limited edition prints portfolio is a showcase of Gareth’s finest work. The collection offers a guaranteed level of image exclusivity, and combines exceptional print quality with a personal finishing service. Limited edition prints are available at sizes of 16"x24" and above, and each image is limited to an edition of 30. Every artwork is checked, signed and numbered on the back by Gareth prior to delivery. If you choose to use our framing service, the mountboard will also be signed, titled and numbered. Please allow at least two weeks for delivery of your limited edition print, and up to four weeks if you opt to have it framed.

Open Editions

All images in our stock photos collection are available as open-edition prints. These are still printed and presented using the finest quality materials, but they are not limited in number, and are not signed by Gareth prior to shipping. Each image is available in a range of size and presentation options. From the stock photos page, use the search facility to browse the collection, then click on a thumbnail to view your ordering options. Open edition prints take between one and three weeks to deliver, depending on your choice of presentation.

Our Printing Technology

All our prints are produced on a large-format Lightjet 5000 printer, using the very latest laser technology to expose the image onto photographic paper. With an apparent resolution of over 4000dpi, the Lightjet 5000 guarantees edge-to-edge sharpness in prints up to 8ft by 4ft wide. The result is a true photographic print with a colour clarity and vibrancy that far exceeds traditional techniques. The images are printed onto the very highest quality Fuji archival photographic paper, and are guaranteed to be colourfast for a minimum of seventy years when hung out of direct sunlight.

Framed Prints

Using our framing service means your print will arrive finished and ready to hang on the wall. This is a particularly good option if you’ve chosen a limited edition print, because it allows Gareth to sign, title and number the mountboard before shipping.

We begin by mounting the print within a brilliant white, white-core archival mountboard. The white core means the bevel edge will not discolour over time. We offer a choice of two simple framing styles – either 1” light oak, or 1” black – both of which are designed to accentuate the impact of the print without detracting attention from it. The process is completed by adding a sheet of perspex, which is as clear as glass but will not break during shipping. Perspex should be cleaned carefully with a soft cloth to avoid scratching the surface.

When choosing your print, remember that the framing process increases the size of the finished picture. The table below gives an idea of the final dimensions.

Please allow up to four weeks for delivery of your framed print.

Canvas Wraps

Printing on canvas is a contemporary way of presenting your chosen image, and our aim is to provide you with a canvas print that has the best archival qualities currently available on the market. Our wraps are printed on high quality 400gsm white cotton canvas, using a professional Giclée printer. Once printed, the canvas is sealed with a UV protective laminate and stretched around a wooden frame. The laminate means that the canvas is splash proof and can be wiped with a soft cloth. The laminate also eliminates cracking of the ink down the edge of the print, a problem that afflicts many cheaper canvas wraps.

The images are wrapped around wooden stretchers 40mm thick, and come with a grey edge to the canvas. Canvas wraps normally take 7 to 10 working days to produce, so please allow up to three weeks for delivery.

Shipping

We ship worldwide for free, using traceable and insured services. Please read our delivery and returns

for full details regarding shipping, refunds and articles damaged in transit.

Print Only

Buying a print only is a good option if you want to have complete control over your own method of presentation. All prints include a 1" white border around the image to facilitate framing. Simply take your print to a reputable framing company in your area and select a frame or mounting technique of your choice. Please note however that in order to protect the print, we recommend using only PH-neutral, archival-quality materials throughout the framing process.

Prints take one to two weeks to deliver, and are shipped loosely rolled in a sturdy cardboard tube. Once you’ve received your print, remove it from the tube and store it flat to prevent any long-term furling of the image.

Custom Sizes

All our images can also be produced in custom sizes up to giant 48"x96" mural-size, or even printed as wallpaper. Please Contact us for further details.

What Our Customers Think

The scene your photograph so wonderfully captures has a very special meaning for my wife and I. It looks simply beautiful as it hangs in our home. Thank you.

We love the print. Exactly what we wanted. It hangs in the entry way to our home and I smile every time I walk by it.
