Josie’s hand drawn illustrations are sent to a team of expert printmakers, who use archival quality, museum-grade fine art papers and pigmented giclée inks to produce immaculate reproductions of her original artworks. A great deal of thought and care goes into the printmaking process, to ensure the closest possible match to Josie’s illustrations. All prints are made to order to improve print quality and manage our environmental footprint. For premium prints, Josie adds gold embellishment by hand, which makes each print a truly unique work of art.
What is the difference between Premium and Standard Prints?
Standard prints are an open (unlimited) edition. Standard prints come with a Certificate of Authenticity which is hand-signed and stamped by Josie. A Certificate of Authenticity is a document which shows that the print is the genuine article. It’s recommended that you keep this with your print, even once framed. Standard prints are made to order with UK delivery within 7-10 days, although earlier delivery may be possible – do get in touch if you need your print by a specific date.
Premium prints are in a limited edition print run of 100 of each size – meaning that once they are gone, they are gone! Each print is embellished by Josie with gold, making each print unique. Premium prints are hand-signed and numbered by Josie. They come with a Certificate of Authenticity which is hand-signed and stamped by Josie. Premium prints can be personalised with a hand-written dedication – please email this to Josie at the time of ordering. Premium prints are made to order with UK delivery within 3-4 weeks, although earlier delivery may be possible – do get in touch if you need your print by a specific date.
How do I look after my print?
If you have ordered an unframed print, it is recommended that you try to frame it as soon as possible. Until then, keep it flat (you can weigh it down with some books.) Keep prints and frames away from direct sunlight, heat and humidity and out of harm’s way. You can keep your Certificate of Authenticity safe in the frame too. Use an anti-static cloth to clean the glazing.
How are prints packaged?
Unframed prints are sent rolled, in tissue paper and a sturdy postal tube. Framed prints are packed in purpose built boxes with corner protectors. It’s really important to Josie for her packaging to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
Josie works with professional framers, who make sure your print is displayed to perfection! Our made-to-order, ready-to-hang frames are professionally assembled using sustainably sourced wood, acid free custom cut mounts and lightweight and durable UV resistant acrylic which is indistinguishable from glass.
Frames are available in black, white and metallic gold wood (Josie’s favourite!) If you have a different colour frame in mind, do get in touch with Josie and she will be happy to discuss bespoke options with you.
Framed prints are currently available in the UK only.
