HOW ARE PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS MADE?
The State of Synthesis collection produces limited edition fine art prints. All prints are printed to the highest industry standards with archival pigments inks.
WHAT IS A LIMITED EDITION PRINT?
All our editions are limited to 20 prints. This means that there will only ever be 20 prints produced of each image. Each print in the edition is exactly the same. Each print, when ordered with the 5cm white border, will be individually signed and numbered. However please note that if you order an artwork and select the no border option, the image is not able to signed and numbered on the front.
HOW DO I HANDLE MY PRINT WHEN IT ARRIVES?
It is important to avoid touching the print directly as oils and dirt from clean hands can damage the artwork. Equally rough treatment can scratch and damage the pigment. Any handling of our print should only occur with cotton gloves to minimise the potential for permanent damage from skin contact.
WILL I RECEIVE THE PRINT EXACTLY AS PICTURED?
We make every effort to provide accurate, high resolution images of our artworks. However, we can not guarantee that the colours depicted on our website exactly reflect the colours of our prints. Please consider that different monitor types display colour differently, and that any variation between colours may depend on the colour reproduction of your screen.
All Giclee Prints are printed on either Cotton Rag Canson Edition Etching 310gsm archival paper with a matte finish, or Metallic Gloss, Ilford Galerie 260gsm as determined by State of Synthesis. Please contact us if you have any questions about the paper type.
We are able to offer custom sizes on certain prints. Equally we are open to discussing a commission piece if there is some combination of our elements that you wish to create. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote.
HOW IS YOUR PRINT SENT?
Your print will be rolled in a tube and ready to frame. If requested we can recommend local framers in most States & Territories of Australia. We can also assist with framing specifications. Generally, we suggest framing in a simple shadow-box frame, with spacers and UV protected glass or Perspex.
