About Our Prints
All our prints are reproduced to the highest standards from original watercolour paintings by Neil J Barlow. Neil has supervised the production of every print to ensure that the colour and detail of the original have been reproduced as faithfully as possible.
Our extensive range is second to none, and is still evolving and improving.
At first our prints were produced for us by skilled craftsman printers, using lithographic machines, fine art printing papers, and lightfast inks. Now, the advent of sophisticated digital technology has enabled us to produce all our prints in-house and; with every aspect of production from the first brushstroke to the finished print under our control; to achieve higher standards than was previously possible.
Digitally produced prints are now commonly referred to as "Giclée" prints, and we have used this term in our descriptions to help you identify them.
Most of our prints are now available framed in a choice of styles that have been carefully selected to match the artwork.
All our mounts have a stay-white core which will not discolour with age, and are manufactured from lignin free alpha celulose buffered with calcium carbonate to protect the print from attack by airbourne acidic pollutants.
Or frames are finished in dark wood, warm silver, or gold. The dark wood moulding is stained mahogany with black outer edge and gold sight edge. The silver gold moulding has a pleasing warm tone with a brushed metallic finish. Our gold moulding also has a brushed metallic finish.
For safety in transit all our frames are fitted with unbreakable acrylic glass. To ensure safe delivery your framed print will be shipped well protected in bubble wrap inside a strong box. Both the packaging materials and the cost of posting a large and weighty parcel are expensive and constantly increasing. We charge you only what it costs us.
Framed prints are only assembled on receipt of your order so please allow 7 days for delivery.
