About This Print

When the children were fast asleep, Gyp the Dog opened the garden gate to greet his friends. One of the first to arrive was Albert Albatross who had flown in from the South Island of New Zealand. Come in, my dear fellow, he said. Welcome to my garden. Albert was surprised to see Arnie the Astronaut fast asleep in the corner after dropping in from outer space. He's had a terribly long journey to get here and he's awfully tired, Gyp explained. However, Mr Cobbler was full of energy and danced with a shoe. Betty Bouncy jumped for joy at seeing Fergus the Friesian who took off his black and white coat because he felt so warm waltzing with Lionel who came disguised as a leaf! Foxy danced with a rather spectacular and weird looking swan. Freddie Fencer took off his sword to do an Irish Jig and lots of fun was had by all.
In the morning the children, who had been fast asleep all night, did not know anyone had been in the garden. Gyp the Dog slept all day because he was exhausted.

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.
