Printing and Framing
We work with expert print labs and framers in South Africa and the USA to ensure that your artwork will resonate in your environment.
If you are looking to create a truly one-of-a-kind environment, large scale photography is an excellent way to bring all nature offers indoors. I sell large and oversized prints that are professionally created using pigment inks on archival paper or canvas, so they will last a lifetime.
Each print is carefully examined before sent out. I offer free shipping anywhere in the world.
Buy Archival Prints
You can easily own my artwork for your business or home.
Each print is made with gallery quality archival pigment inks on fine art paper and canvas, guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Rolled Prints Come Ready-to-Frame
Each printed image comes standard with a narrow white border that is suitable for framing and mounting. Extra wide white borders on paper or canvas prints can be provided upon request.
Edition prints with white borders are embossed by the artist and contain the hand-written edition number along with a unique serial number on the back. Prints, face mountings, and canvas prints are inscribed with a hand-written unique serial number and image details on the reverse side.
Prints can also be framed or mounted with no white border. Those include a digitized signature made from the artist’s original signature, as well as the handwritten unique serial number and edition details on the back of the mounting.
We rely on the expertise of our skilled master framing partners to handle the optional framing of our fine art prints.
Rolled prints will arrive rolled in a protective carboard tube.
Upon immediate delivery, we highly recommend you send your prints directly to your framer for careful, professional unrolling of the artwork.
Rolled works can be easily stretched onto wooden canvas stretcher bars or paper prints framed by a local framer upon arrival.
We provide free worldwide shipping to all major centers worldwide of all rolled paper and canvas prints
Frames and Mountings to Suit Your Style and Space
The right frame or mounting is all it takes to harmonize the artwork with the environment. Our custom frames are crafted with a variety of carefully chosen traditional or modern materials and are meticulously hand-assembled.
Our framing experts bring their own artistry to the project. They will guide you through the framing process and tailor their suggestions to your requirements. Their strong attention to detail allows you to show off your new prints for many years to come.
Acrylic Face Mounting
Acrylic Face Mounting is an innovative method to mount the face of the photo to acrylic or iron-free glass with special UV inhibited silicone rendering a high gloss appearance and 3D-like effect enriched with vibrant colours and deep blacks. Mounted on a strurdy 18mm aluminium frame with flush mount hangers behind, the image not only hangs parallel with the wall but also appears to float.
We use fine art paper for the most exceptional rendering of your art. The final product is stable and can withstand temperature and humidity changes. This process is free of bubbles and silvering often found when using double-sided adhesive.
DiaMount® to Plexiglass (RSA clients only)
Manufactured using 3mm Plexiglass, to which the images are face-mounted. Once the image has rested, it’s then backed by a rigid aluminium composite material (ACM), like Dibond®, encapsulating the print in an airtight sandwich. This process offers you a modern contemporary feel whereby it appears to be floating on a wall. Yet we’re not limited to this finish as it can also be framed, giving you that timeless classic look. Discuss your preferences with our consultants.
Diasec® Face Mount Prints to Acrylic
(USA and International clients only)
Diasec is a museum approved method of print preservation and presentation.
A fine art print is sandwiched behind an acrylic glazing and another archival substrate. The adhesive used in a real Diasec is a silicon adhesive combined with a proprietary product that ensures a complete and permanent bond. Unlike sticky film based acrylic face mounts that look similar, Diasec is engineered to never separate, peel, or fail.
Diasec Acrylic Print Mounting provides the extra smooth and extra pop visual benefits you will see. This is the premier presentation system for bringing detail, color and tonal range to life in a way that traditional photo framing cannot. For this presentation style we print on Select Giclee Pigment Papers and Fuji Flex polyester photographic material for amazing color and longevity (black and white images also look fantastic on these materials).
Face Mounted on lens-grade optically clear 1/4″ acrylic, the edges are sanded to a smooth satin finish or hand polished for a crystal clear look (Polishing not available with giclée papers). The face mount to acrylic plex comes backer-less, or with your choice of backer materials and hanging hardware: an optional metal french cleat style hanging system or stand-offs. Square corners are standard, rounded corners are available.
The contemporary look of this photo mounting presentation method is ideal for artwork and images that really pop. An acrylic face mount print will look great against most any wall type.
(USA and International clients only)
The TruLife® Acrylic is an optional extra and provides the added benefit of increased contrast, significantly lower reflections and a surface that is more resistant to scratches.
Custom Framing for Your Prints
We use custom-built frames designed and created by the highest skilled craftsmen. You’ll have a choice between the traditional wood frames for a rustic appearance or aluminum frames designed to fit a modern space.
We will consult with customers to guide you through the final stages of the purchase to match the style that you are looking for. These custom frames are designed to suit your budget.

ARTISTS WORKING FOR ARTISTS
We have collaborated with Reed Art and Imaging, located in Lakewood OR USA, to produce artwork using Optical Grade Diasec acrylic face mounting.
Reed Art and Imaging are the only printers in the USA authorized to produce acrylic prints using the patented Diasec method.
Reed Art and Imaging uses Giclee Pigment printing on high quality Fine Art Paper to guarantee not only the very best in image reproduction and color accuracy but also that these prints will not fade for 75 years.
Service and quality always comes first and foremost at Reed. They don’t automate their printing.
Every print is given the attention to detail it deserves. Because Reed doesn’t treat you like a number, they also refuse to treat your prints that way.
"Our roots are deep in the production of fine art editions and that experience gives us a quality edge.
Most imaging facilities produce work to a standard of only “good enough.” As our owner Bob Reed
says: “90% of what’s “good enough’ down the street, ends up in our waste cans”. True creatives have
their heart and soul in their work and we get that because we’re creatives too. We completely
understand that the integrity of the piece must come through in the reproductions. Because this
mindset is a part of who we are, it carries through to every imaging job we produce regardless of
client or market type. Every print we produce must meet your standards of excellence"
