    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.
