Images are printed in their original proportions, within a white border, on a Photo paper, Art paper or Matt Fine Art paper. The dimensions listed above are for the paper size only.

The Photo and Matt Fine Art paper have a semi-gloss finish, ideally suited to reproductions of photographs, while the Art paper has a matt textured surface that works particularly well for reproductions of drawings, etchings and some paintings.

Our frames come in four different colours, black, white, dark grey and light oak on photo paper in either small or medium. Our frames are made from solid sustainable wood in the UK, and the dimensions are:

Small: Depth 23mm / Height 332mm / Width 245mm

Medium: Depth 23mm / Height 517mm / Width 362mm
