DIY FRAMING OPTION:
The prints come in standard paper sizes (A3, A2, A1, A0). If you enjoy framing your artwork, you have the freedom to purchase a standard frame from your preferred local store or supplier.
- TIP: You can enhance the display of (for example) your A3 print on your wall by framing it in an A2 frame with a mat board cutout for an A3. This simple trick makes your art print appear larger and more impressive. If you're using a matboard, be sure to confirm the opening size before making your purchase.
- OPTIONAL 'ADD-A-FRAME':
- If you'd rather not go through the trouble of framing the paper prints yourself or taking them to your local framer, you can opt to have them professionally framed and ready to hang when they arrive.
- Enjoy peace of mind with a 10-year guarantee on our locally made, gallery-quality solid timber frames, sustainably sourced from plantations.
- Available in a beautiful Natural Oak finish, with the option for Black or White frames upon request.
- The frame's outer profile dimensions are W20 x H30-40mm.
- For secure shipping, we use shatterproof acrylic, which possesses 10 times the impact strength of traditional glass while maintaining the same transparency. It's the ideal choice for picture framing.
- Each frame comes with premium metal hangers and steel wire, making it a breeze to hang your artwork.
- The print will occupy the entire frame; no mat board is provided.
- Please be aware that the art print must be bought separately. This art frame option is intended for those who prefer not to handle the framing themselves.

- An extra white border of 75mm all around the print is added for those who wish to have it stretched and/or framed at their local framer.
