All LD Art House prints are professionally printed to the highest industry standard, with the finest quality archival inks on beautiful, heavyweight, matte, archival fine art paper. This type of printing is also known as giclee printing, which allows the prints to last over 50 years.
Print sizes refer to the size of the paper. With all of our prints, you have the option of whether or not you would like a white border around the image. The outside measurement of the white border will be the print size. The image size is slightly reduced to accommodate the white border.
Our framed prints come with customisable framing options and sizes. This ensures you have the flexibility to order the perfect piece, frame and size for your space.
We frame our prints using premium 21mm wide x 40mm deep wood frames with a light weight foam core backs for ease of hanging. The prints are protected behind museum quality, 2mm optical grade plexi-glass that is 94% UV resistant. They come ready to hang with framing grade d-rings and string. We recommend hanging with at least two fixing points on the wall.

The best protection for your prints is a professional frame. If you are going to frame them yourself, try to use acid free framing materials to ensure your work does not deteriorate over time. Plexiglas fronts are durable and much stronger than glass. Plexiglass will not break like glass and destroy the artwork. Use a soft cloth and computer screen cleaner to wipe the front of the frame when needed. Make sure you use soft cloth gloves when handling the print and always have clean hands when touching the print directly. Carefully pull the print out of the tube but do not pull by the end. The prints themselves are very delicate and can mark easily, so if you are having the work framed on your own, ensure the art is removed with the upmost care (even better if you wait until your professional framer removes it for you).
