Over the last several years, the traditional framing style of glass, matting boards, and timber framing has been replaced with the crisp clean finish of Acrylic glass. The cost of the Acrylic finish is quite a bit less than traditional framing, whilst the impact is more impressive; allowing then even for larger finished print sizes to be hung.
The Acrylic comes in different thicknesses: 6mm and 3mm. The thicker the Acrylic the greater the 3D sense and appearance, however, the 3mm still looks awesome. The 3mm thickness is around 15% less expensive than the finished equivalent in the 6mm but is only available in sizes up to the 150x48cm size. 6mm Acrylic is required for all sized larger, providing a greater strength and rigidity to the finished piece.
The Limited Edition standard sizes are: 100x32cm, 125x40cm, 150x48cm, 175x57cm, 200x64cm, 250x80cm, and 300x96cm. However, you are welcome to order at any specific size to suit. Pricing depends on the individual images, relating to the number sold. Each image is signed and numbered, serialized to the print number; with the limited release number shown underneath. Most of the collection has a limited release number of 360, however, a few were released at 380.
Recently I have released a Gift Range of smaller sizes, using the 3mm thick Acrylic. These smaller Gift sized images come with optional hanging methods including Acrylic ‘panels’ where they are hung on the wall using 3M self-adhesive ‘velcro’ tabs. They are great because you do not need to drill any holes, nor screw or nail hanging hooks. This product allows you to simply stick the finished Acrylic photograph directly to the wall easily and securely in just minutes. This adhesion method makes picture hanging safe for rentals, offices, tiles, glass, brick, or concrete; with totally safe removal or repositioning when and however you like.
The Gift Range is available in the sizes: 24x10cm, 35x12cm, 50x16cm, and 75x24cm. The Prices are as follows:
24x10cm (4 x 9 inch) – only a selected number of images available.
35x12cm (5 x 14 inch) – only a selected number of images available.
50x16cm (6 x 20 inch) – finishes: 3mm ‘slim baton’, 3mm with ‘float-frame’, 6mm with ‘float-frame’.
75x24cm (9 x 30 inch) – finishes: 3mm ‘slim baton’, 3mm with ‘float-frame’, 6mm with ‘float-frame’.
‘Slim baton’ is a flat/thin profile aluminium strip on the back of the finished Acrylic, hung with a matching interlocking slim baton rail that you screw to the wall.
‘Float Frame’ is a ‘U’ shaped aluminum frame on the back of the finished Acrylic, again hung with a matching interlocking rail that you screw to the wall.
(‘3M velcro system’ can be used for all of the above options.)

Deliveries are fully insured and guaranteed to arrive in perfect condition. Domestic freight charges are included. International freight is sent via Federal Express (TNT) and the cost is dependant on the finished sizes (please see at checkout). Freight charges are priced from $30 (50x16cm) – $200 (250x80cm).
Printing: Printed with pigment inks on metallic photographic paper, and mounted on Acrylic glass; each image presents crisp, clear, and bright. Most people when first viewing the finished piece is convinced that it is lit from behind. Acrylic glass is a totally transparent material, with very little reflection, but is also very hardy and strong. It is also temperature and static neutral requiring very little cleaning. Available at various finished sizes and thickness of acrylic, please refer to the price list for all available options.
Cleaning: When cleaning simply use a feather duster and a microfibre cloth (if necessary use “isopropyl alcohol”).

Mock-up service: Over the years I have assisted clients choose their final image size with a service whereby I superimpose an image on client supplied photographs of their house. For example, a client would step back from their living room wall and taking a photo would send it to me. Providing also a reference point that I can scale against, a measurement of the wall, or the size of an exisiting painting, I could then scale in a precise finished piece to exact measurement. Clients then could choose from the mock-ups.
Complicated? … here a look at some of the examples:
Client provided an image of their room with reference to size.
A scaled in 150x48cm to size.
A scaled in 175x57cm to size.
Client chose a blend of sizes … 150x57cm.
