Q1. Do you do customised and personalised orders?
I am happy to produce customised and personalised orders. If there is a particular subject you have in mind just let me know, provide me with photos (if you can) and we can take it from there.
Good subjects for custom orders are prints of places that hold a special significance for you - the place you got married, the place you met, a favourite holiday destination...
I can also produce prints of pets, they make a lovely gift to yourself or a loved one.
Q2. Sizing details
Details of the unframed paper size is included in the variants.
Paper size refers to the size of the paper the print is on not the size of the area covered with the lino or digital print.
Q3. Care instructions
All my original lino prints are produced using specialist water based printing inks and either 220 gsm or 350 gsm paper that is acid free.
My digital prints use 180 gsm matt coated Canon specialist paper and pigment inks.
Prints are UV resistant but should be framed and kept away from direct sunlight for prolonged periods.
Q4. Packaging and shipping
To ensure that the product reaches you in perfect condition I send them in purpose made art bags that are sealed and water resistant. Included in the art bag is a double layer corrugated card back sheet to ensure that the product remains flat during shipping.
All items are sent registered post. The tracking number is provided to the buyer when the shipping confirmation is sent.
Q5. Wholesale availability
I am able to meet wholesale orders for my digital prints. The prints can be produced in any size up to A1. Wholesale orders are subject to a minimum order - please contact me for details.
My original artwork is not available for wholesale.
Q6. How is the artwork produced?
All my original lino prints are hand printed by me in my studio in Malta. I prepare initial sketches, design the image and then hand carve the lino blocks for each layer of the print.
Lino printing is a relief printing process. Each layer of colour is printed separately progressing from the lightest colour to the darkest. The lino is progressively carved away to remove the parts of the design that will remain the colour of the previous print layer.
