Paper Prints

 





Paper Prints are produced on high quality acid free paper. Most prints are on standard metric paper sizes (A1,A2,A3 and A4) The smaller sizes (A3 and A4) are printed using a colour laser printer. The larger sizes are printed on a wide bed ink jet printer using extremely long life (rated at 100 years plus) pigment inks on high quality acid free matt paper. All paper prints should be framed behind glass using appropriately sized mattes.

An exception to the use of standard metric paper sizes is made in the case of the smaller bird paintings where the original painting is only 8 x 10 inches (200 x 250 mm). These are printed on US Standard Letter sized paper (8.25 x 11 inches). This has a minor benefit in that there is a range of NZ made 14 x 11 stock frames supplied with an 8 x 10 matte which can be used to provide a reasonably economic framing opportunity.

The sizes of the margins and of the image area of the various print sizes is as follows:

  • US Letter - 10 mm margin surrounding an image 250 x 196 mm. Suitable framing in 14 x 11 inch stock frames. (see note above)

  • A4 - 10 mm margin surrounding an image 277 x 190 mm. Suitable for framing in 14 x 11 inch stock frames.

  • A3 - 14 mm margin surrounding an image 386 x 269 mm. Suitable for framing in 20 x 16 inch stock frames.

  • A2 - 20 mm margin surrounding an image 554 x 380 mm. For prints of this size stock frames are not usually available, so custom frames and mattes will be required.

  • A1 - 28 mm margin surrounding an image up to 784 x 538 mm. With smaller sizes the images are scaled and cropped to match the standard format. With A1 prints the image will be scaled to the 538 mm width, but depending on the format of the painting the height of the finished print image may be slightly less.
