Art Prints are produced on quality fine art paper (Innova FibaPrint 300gsm), using professional Epson printers and archival inks for longevity. The paper is much thicker and heavier than the posters you typically buy in a shop, and archival inks greatly reduce the likelihood of fading, although we can’t guarantee this.
Mounted (matted) prints are hand-assembled, using quality, archival mount board with a neutral-ph non-acidic core, which will keep its colour for the lifetime of the board.
Art Print image size versus mount size (approximately):

Limited Edition Prints
Limited Edition Prints are also produced on quality fine art paper (Hahnemühle Museum Etching 350gsm textured, natural white, 100% cotton rag). Mounts (mats) are hand-cut and assembled by the artist using white core mount-board which is lignin-free and PH neutral for greater longevity of the print. Any exceptions to the paper choice are stated on the product.
Limited Edition prints are also individually numbered to form a finite series and hand-signed by Chris Down.
Unmounted prints are shipped flat, not rolled.

Canvas prints are printed on high quality, waterproof, bright white, fine textured 100% polyester inkjet matte canvas, and printed with genuine, pigment, fade resistant inks that will not fade for 100+ years. All our canvases are laminated to reduce the chance of marks from fingerprints, etc., being incredibly durable and waterproof. Laminated prints have a light sheen like satin photographic papers.
The frame is hand made with care, supplied with corner wedges for the re-tensioning of your canvas (if necessary), and a dentate (sawtooth) hanger so they are ready to hang on your wall.
