PRINT:~ Supplied in full Colour, Sepia-Brown or Black & White. Titled, Signed & Dated. Each is re-touched, hand-worked, and enhanced to bring out the best result possible. If supplied rolled, please unroll them on a large flat clean surface & avoid any rough handling. Ideally take them to your framer first & unroll them there. They should be mounted with an overlay cut-out border so that the print does not touch the glass. Due to the shape of the original negative, the chosen dimensions may not be as originally requested.
MOUNTED:~ As above with white 5-8cm border, cut-out overlay Mount Card & Backboard.
FRAMED:~ As above with 1cm wooden Black Frame: (delivered in UK only).


Available from the historical archive images from the 1880s to today's modern digital images. Printed directly onto excellent quality canvas and pre-stretched onto a 2' thick wooden frame with wrap around edges (if possible). Each canvas has a hardboard backing for rigidity and the surface is laminated for protection. Being lightweight, the finished product may be hung from a single (but substantial) screw or nail. The results are impressive especially the larger sizes.

Other Commercial Products include: CALENDARS.
