Hand-Signed Prints

These days, we're used to looking at images on tiny screens, but it's not the same as admiring a physical print.

Like you, I read a lot of content on digital devices – a phone, a laptop and a Kindle. But when it comes to imagery, there's nothing like holding it in your hand or seeing it on a wall. That's why I own so many hardcover books. It's why I buy car magazines. And it's why I have extra-large images hanging on my walls. The image here of Port Augusta (on canvass) occupies the back wall in my downstairs office.

Whether it's in your home, your holiday shack or your office, nothing will transform a room quite like an original piece of art. And because a print doesn't occupy any floor space, it is ideal for cramped spaces. What's more, you can order it in the size to suit its intended location.

All of my prints are produced in Australia and printed on luxurious Canson® Infinity Platine 100% cotton fibre paper, and then signed by me.

Canson® is one of the earliest pioneers in paper manufacture, with a history that stretches back to 1801. Their Platine Fibre Rag offers a true pure white tone without using optical brighteners that are known to affect the longevity of digitally produced images.

Its extremely high Dmax (black saturation) and exceptional grey tones make it the product of choice for high-end image reproduction.

Sizes, Shipping, Timeframes, etc.

To purchase a signed print, simply click any of the images in the gallery, then nominate the size and quantity. Right now, you must use a laptop/desktop computer to purchase.

I'm astonished at the exorbitant prices some people charge to send a print to purchasers and investors, and I certainly don't want to be one of them. So, all my prints are sent postage-free no matter where you live in the world (providing it's not the Gobi Desert or somewhere similarly remote).

SIZING

You'll notice that not all my images conform to standard ratios of 4 x 3, 3 x 2 or 16 x 9. So rather than manually calculate the price of every possible shape and size, I've listed a range of ‘standard' dimensions to choose from. Simply use the longest measurement of your selected print size, and your print's longest size will match it.

Your print won't be cropped. Plus, a small white border (5 to 10mm depending on paper stock selected for your print) will be added to aid matting and framing.

SHIPPING & TIMEFRAMES

Your print will typically roll off the press within 48 hours, after which it will come to me for final inspection and signing. It will then be re-packaged and mailed to you by air.

As you might know, freight can be a fickle thing (especially at the moment), so please be patient as you await the arrival of your item. You will receive an email with a tracking number, confirming its dispatch on the day it's sent.
