Frequently Asked Questions
What is an original print?
An original print is a unique one-off print which will not be duplicated for sale in any other form. The nature of creating this art is specificaly intended to be printed due to the small scale and transitory nature.
What is a translucent print?
Imagine the picture printed onto a sheet of glass and mounted 3cm (1 ¼ inches) proud of your wall with chrome fixings (supplied). We actually print onto acrylic sheet because it is lighter, difficult to break and less reflective than glass. Ambient light permeates through the picture, especially through the faintest areas to wonderful effect. The colour of the wall shows through the picture so white or pale coloured walls are best.
What is a light picture?
Imagine your picture displayed using a flat screen TV mounted onto your wall.
The image is printed onto Duratran (a transparent film). This is placed into the light box, before shipping, behind a protective sheet of Perspex. Once turned on, the image is lit up from behind. The light box is under 4cm thick and slightly bigger than the image, providing a metalic aluminium frame for the image. Light is uniformly distributed throughout the image giving the appearance of a computer or TV screen. The image lights up providing ambient light and an eye catching focal point. Cold cathode tubes are used so the light box is very energy efficient and does not get hot. The light box is powered by mains electricity.
What is an aluminium and foamex mounted print?
Imagine a totally flat, frameless print, floating 1cm proud of your wall.
The image is printed onto high quality photographic paper which is then bonded onto an aluminium or 10mm. black foamex sheet. The choice between aluminium and foamex is made on which material will best enhance a particular image. The finish is incredibly flat, showing the details of the prints to best advantage.
