ESSENTIAL COLLECTION FRAMING GUIDE

PRINTING METHOD - Heavyweight Archival Paper with Epson Pigments

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

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. 

FRAMING

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.

CARING FOR YOUR ART

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).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Signature VS Classic Framing

Our signature photography series is an original and limited edition collection, professionally printed with the finest quality archival inks on 308gm Hahnemühle cotton rag paper. We work closely with our local framer to finish your new photographic works in a beautifully framed exhibition style. 

What is Hahnemühle cotton rag paper? It is one of the worlds most popular papers chosen by photographers and artists to create high quality fine art prints. The white cotton artist’s paper, with its characteristic, wonderfully soft feel, boasts a lightly defined felt structure, lending each artwork a three-dimensional appearance and impressive pictorial depth. It’s a white 100% cotton paper of superb quality capable of producing excellent photographic results that will outlast us all.

We offer two types of framing for our limited edition photography prints.  Classic and Signature Framing.

Both framing types (Signature and Classic) use premium 2.1cm wide x 4.0cm deep wood frames with a light weight foam core back for ease of hanging. Lightweight museum grade acrylic that is 94% UV resistant, is used to ensure that your framed artwork is installed easily and does not require a professional hanging service.  Note, we do recommend always hanging your framed prints with at least two fixings points on the wall.

Both framing types (Signature and Classic) are printed professionally printed with the finest quality archival inks on 308gsm Hahnemühle cotton rag paper. 

Both framing types (Signature and Classic) are signed and numbered by Lauren on the front.

What's the difference between Signature and Classic framing?:

SIGNATURE FRAMING has the addition of a classic white matt board*. A matt board is a cut out, cardboard-like material that sits between the frame and the artwork to give it a complete finished look. The addition of the matt board creates a larger overall framed size.  Please refer to our framing sizes below.

**Please note: The 90 x 126 sized prints are only available in the classic framing style. 

CLASSIC FRAMING does NOT have a matt board. Instead the image has a white border around the image.  This white border is included in the print size and is signed and numbered.
