Where can I get a frame?
All Print Darling prints are fairly standard sizes, depending on what you like, you can get frames easily from Ikea, Target, Kmart, photo stores and custom made at your local framing shop. Ikea has online ordering if that suits you better.
You can also mount your image on board or corflute – talk to your local custom framing shop.
Will my prints fade?
Your Print Darling print is printed using 100% rated archival inks (200 years) suitable for indoor use only. In bright sunny areas, fading will occur over time.
What sort of paper will my print be on?
We will offer a choice of 285 gsm Chromajet Centurion Silk (a super white smooth heavy paper, for high quality photographic images) or 190gsm Photo Rag White Matte Art ( an acid free fine art matte cotton rag art cartridge, slightly textured for a high end gallery look). Sometimes we will only offer one paper option, knowing this is the best for that particular image.
What sort of print quality?
Print Darling will never send out a less than fabulous print. All our prints are Giclee quality, printed with UV rated archival inks (200 years), suitable for indoor use.
What is Giclee?
The word Giclee (Gee – slay) is derived from the French verb gicler meaning to squirt or spray. Giclee is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival paper to achieve Giclee quality prints.
How long will my print take to arrive?
Once you have ordered your print, we will print within 2 -3 business days, inks need to dry for 1 day for best results and then we will post to you via Australia post. Overall delivery will be 7-12 days.
