About This Print

An elegant designer print of God Save the Queen. Commonly believed to be the official national anthem of the UK, it has been played, by tradition, since 1745. Surprisingly, it has not been decreed the official anthem.

This print includes a number of standard verses and a slightly modernised fourth verse of William Hickson's alternative lyrics, written in 1836. This verse was included in the performance of the anthem at the hand-over to London at the Beijing Olympics.

Verses have been added and deleted over the years, with the more militaristic ones falling out of favour. An 'Official Peace Version 1919' also exists.

Part of a collection released to celebrate the 2012 Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, each print features the sparkling diamond-encrusted crown and is available in a choice of three decorator colours. To see the entire collection click on Artist: Abigail Designs.

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
