WHAT'S UP WITH THE NEW PRINTSHOP?
Not only is this a refresh of our website and brand, but we also wanted to take time to analyze how to make the printshop fit your needs and wants better!
There are a few major changes. We are now offering each print in editions of 100 at three different sizes; 11x14, 18x24, and 24x30. These are standard sizes so you are welcome to order these unframed or… FRAMED!
We are so excited to be offering framing on all our prints. There are three different mat options; No mat, which means the edge of the print will come directly to the edge of the frame. Matted, which means there will be a white piece of mat board cut with the beveled edge covering the edge of the print, transitioning it to the frame. And finally, floated, which means we will take a foam mounting tape that will add a tiny bit of height so the edge of the print is showing and creating a shadow on the mat board behind it.
We are now offering two different frame colors: natural wood and white. Both are really lovely and neutral as not to take away from the image but to elevate it.
Every print will continue to be hand-numbered, titled, and signed by Blakely.
So, why the price change?
We are switching to giclee printing! Each print will now be printed on archival paper to ensure the longevity of the image. The scans of the artwork are at an extremely high resolution to capture every shade and detail of the original work. We are working with a local printer so we can run trial and error prints and color-match to the original. In general, you will pay a bit more, for a higher quality piece.
Also, with this method, we will be able to accept more custom print projects based on your needs. So, always reach out if you are hoping for a size larger than 24x30.
All in all, we believe these updates will improve the quality of art you are receiving. We cannot wait to see these pieces in your home!
