Prints

You can buy prints of my photographs through this web site by clicking on the Buy button next to an image in the gallery. 

I offer four types of print: one mounted (A2 size), with the mounted image measuring 70cm by 50 com (roughly 27.5" by 19.5" for my Imperial-loving friends); and three unmounted print sizes: A2, A3+ and A4. Up to date prices can be found on any of the image pages in the Landscape gallery. Panoramas are priced individually, and are sold unmounted.  

Please email me via the Contact page if you have other print requirements that you would like to discuss. 

 

Print information

All of the prints sold through this site are printed and mounted by me. 
 
I print my images onto Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk paper using long-lasting Epson K3 pigment inks. Ilford's Gold Fibre Silk is a baryta (barium sulphate) coated paper, very similar to traditional fibre-based photographic papers. My photographs are, of course, printed without the watermark which is present in the online galleries.

I mount the print using a white acid-free mount (with a slight texture, see photo above) and backing board, in accordance with the 'best practice' suggested by those involved in archives and conservation work. The combination of pigment inks, heavy-weight quality paper and acid-free mounts means that my prints should, with care, last for many, many years. 
 

Canvas prints

An original photograph, printed on to a matte canvas using long-lasting pigment inks, and coated with a protective varnish. The canvas is acid-free, has a neutral pH and is free of optical brightening agents which can adversely affect papers and canvases. 
 
The canvas is mounted on to 18mm-deep pine stretcher bars, giving a slimmer profile than that found on some of the more commercial canvas prints.
 
The height of the print (shortest edge) will be approximately 35cm or 14". The width of the print will depend on the individual image. Please contact me if you have any questions about the dimensions of your print.
 

Care

As with any artwork, it is important that you avoid displaying this print in direct sunlight. Sitting in the sun all day wouldn't do your skin any good, and the same is true for my prints. 
 
The mounted prints are attached to the backing board using acid-free linen hinges, which allows for any movement of the print due to changes in humidity. Should it ever be necessary to re-mount the print then the hinges and mat can be easily removed without damaging the front of the print. 
 

Delivery

My A2 mounted prints are delivered flat-packed in a reinforced cardboard box. A2 and A3+ prints are posted rolled in a 4" or 3" tube, and A4 prints in a reinforced envelope. 

Returns

If you are unhappy with your print for any reason then please return the original print to me, undamaged, within 30 days, with a brief message saying why you were not satisfied. I will refund you upon receipt of the print. Please note that you will have to pay for the return postage, which cannot be refunded.
