Josie’s hand drawn illustrations are sent to a team of expert printmakers, who use museum-quality 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. Josie’s prints are available in two editions: Standard Editions and Limited Editions. Josie adds gold embellishment by hand to Limited Edition prints, which makes them a truly unique work of art.
What is a giclée print?
A giclée print is a high quality fine art reproduction, where archival pigment inks are sprayed on to an archival fine art paper. Your print will be in vivid pure colour, with exceptional detail and the closest possible match to Josie’s original illustrations, and crucially, will not degrade over time.
What is the difference between Standard and Limited Edition Prints?
Standard Edition prints are an open (unlimited) edition. Standard Edition 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. 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.
Limited Edition prints are embellished with gold by Josie, making each print unique. They are a limited edition print run of 100 of each size – meaning that once they are gone, they are gone! They are hand-signed and numbered by Josie, and come with a hand stamped and signed Certificate of Authenticity. Limited Edition prints can be personalised with a hand-written dedication – please add this in the box at the checkout. 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.
What’s a Limited Edition?
It is a limited run of an artwork which is made up of a set number of art prints in a set number of sizes. Once they’ve gone, they’ve gone! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to request a specific edition number and Josie will see if this is possible.
What is a Certificate of Authenticity?
A Certificate of Authenticity is a signed document which shows that the print is the genuine article. It’s recommended that you keep this with your print, even once framed. All Josie’s prints come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Can I have an existing print personalised by Josie?
To make your Limited Edition print even more special, Josie can personalise an existing print with a hand-written one-line dedication, like a name or date, for no extra cost. Please add your dedication in the box at the checkout. Additional fees may apply dependent on level of personalisation and detail.
Can I add a gift message to my order?
Yes, you can add a gift message in the box at the checkout. There are no prices within any of Josie’s shipments, so you can ship straight to your recipient!
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.
