I ship all my artwork prints in heavy duty poster tubes, these are most secure way to protect the artwork. The artwork is also wrapped inside to the tube. Original work is bubble wrapped and securely packed in heavy duty cardboard boxes. I use private couriers to deliver original work so I have direct contact to the driver at all times. Prints are delivered using my hermes and various international courier companies. 

I aim to ship all my orders within 2 – 3 days of the order, however on some occasions it might be longer if I’m waiting to restock from my printers. Or original work, please allow anything from 5-10 working days in the UK and 6-14 working days for overseas orders. If you require your order for a specific date, please clarify on your order. 

My Giclee prints are made in England, they are printed on a heavy textured fine art paper which has a watercolour paper feel to it. 

The word Giclée (“g-clay”), is derived from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt or spray”, Giclée, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve Giclée prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.

The Giclée printing process involves squirting or spraying microscopic dots of pigment-based ink onto high quality art paper or canvas. The image is colour corrected to attain the closest possible match to the original work if required. The digital information is fine tuned to the type of paper or surface on which the image is to be printed, further ensuring fidelity to the original. 

Yes, although you own the original artwork, Chris always retains copywrite of the image and is able to produce on prints / clothing or anything else at his discretion. Re-production of any of Chris’s artwork is forbidden.

It’s advised not to hang any artwork in direct sunlight, original or print as this will fade the colours over time. Find a well lit area with space around it. 

I do mount prints for art shows etc but I’m not currently shipping them as they are difficult and more expense to ship with them being flat, however, if you really want it mounted contact me direct and I’d be happy to discuss. 

Depending on the idea and my schedule I’m open to commissions although it’s not something I do often, contact me if you have a specific idea.
