Q : DO YOU SHIP TO MY COUNTRY?
A : Yes..! the Studio ships worldwide.
Furthermore, we charge what we are charged and don't make a penny on shipping.
Not only that, the Studio is highly experienced in sending prints to
art galleries and private individuals all over the world,
so not only are we proud to say we have not once had a damaged return,
but also happy to say that the office team in the Studio checks the
rates with all couriers on a daily basis, to ensure the most
cost effective one for you as a customer.
Q : DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM SIZE FINE ART PRINTS?
A : We do, - if you wish for a bigger size than what’s available in the print shop.
We can Giclée print up to 110 x 250 cm (or 43 x 98 inches).
We also do the occasional special request (even bigger-) size,
then with a so-called C-type printing method which is different from Giclée
and therefore a test run is always part of your process.
Please e-mail us your inquiry on this and we’ll do all we can to help you.
Q : DO YOU TAKE CUSTOM REQUESTS FOR HANNAH'S WORK NOT FOUND IN THE SHOP?
A : We do, - please e-mail us your inquiry
and we’ll see if it’s a wish we can fulfil.
As long as the copyright isn’t sold to a 2nd party,
we can usually help and we send out a lot of custom orders.
Q : WHAT DOES ARCHIVAL MEAN?
A : In cold hard facts that means the print studio use only the
highest quality acid-free Giclée papers, and genuine fade-resistant,
archival Epson pigment inks. When tested by the international
testing facilities (the Wilhelm Institute and Aardenburg Imaging) these inks were
ranked within the top three of all archival inks currently in production.
In the softer sense it means you'll own a print that will last,
in precisely that same beautiful quality, - for at least 75 years.
Q : WHERE DO YOU PRINT AND SHIP FROM?
A : We collaborate with, - & print at, a longstanding professional
imaging lab in England, specialising in high-quality fine art
and photographic printing. The lab's work has been exhibited
in art galleries and museums the world over.
It was founded in 1993 and has grown into one of the UK’s leading
photographic printing and finishing studios.
The Studio also consistently work with reusing the material that
they are sent in their business, so cardboard tubes, for example, is always
already used at least once. We are also in a Eco-Delivery commitment,
meaning the most earth-friendly delivery is always prioritised.
Q : DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE ON FRAMING?
A : Oh, - do we ever?
This is a step that can bring the fine art you’ve bought to yet another level.
It’s a little bit like a beautiful Japanese tea ceremony
and very much like taking that favourite coat to the dry cleaners.
It gives and keeps giving, that difficult to place - but unmistakable - feeling
of something being new, over and over again.
We say go to a framing workshop if you can.
It’s often less expensive than people imagine,
- & there’s nothing quite like choosing a hand-painted frame
that compliments the photograph and getting it
professionally mounted and glassed.
You can also find beautiful vintage frames at flea markets.
It’s stunning to mix old golden or silver frames with wooden ones for example.
Most of the fine art prints here will also fit into those standard measure
picture frames you might already have at home as well.
In short, - we’d just love to advise you to take care of the prints.
It probably won’t feel great for long with them getting scratches or marks.
With photographic prints wear and tear won't add that covetable patina,
so we say - frame - & then hang above a beautifully worn
or cool retro inherited piece of furniture.
Should you have a question not answered here,
don’t hesitate to write and ask.
