FAQ's | All you need to know

Hi Dave, do you provide a stretching and hanging service for prints?
Yes, absolutely! As all prints are delivered to the UK rolled: for a nominal (optional) charge of £50 I will personally undertake collection of your print/s, having it/them stretched, the painting of the edges black (to mirror Peter’s original pieces of art) and the hanging of your artwork. Offer only applies to London postcodes within zones 1-6.

Cost of Stretching: FYI Our recommended London framer charge £200 for the stretching of one 100cm x 100cm print.

What is a giclee print?
All Peter Pharoah giclee art prints are produced on artist quality primed canvas using the finest archival inks currently available.

We produce a high quality inkjet print that allows for a greater complexity of colour and tone. The term 'giclee' is often applied to inkjet reproductions of artworks that were originally produced in another medium.

Giclee prints are generally a combination of dye sublimation and ink jet printing producing a non-impact computer-controlled reproduction in which tiny droplets of ink are projected from nozzles onto the canvas. The result is rich in colour with limited loss of detail and a durable print that in the right conditions will endure for many years.

How will my item be delivered?
We prefer to send originals stretched, as there are risks relating to damage occurring when any artwork is re-stretched, as we are obviously not in control of the
process. So as this is beyond our control we cannot be liable for any issues, if you decide to have the artworks sent rolled. All stretched artworks have their edges painted black.
We usually freight originals using strong, but lightweight cardboard packaging and use a company who has been delivering our art around the world since 2005.
Freight charges include fumigation, insurance, local delivery and packaging. Delivery normally takes approximately 3 weeks including customs processing etc.
(currently this is variable as there are sometimes issues related to Covid19 and can also fluctuate during busy times such as the festive season).
Prints: We usually prefer to deliver the prints rolled as the price to send them stretched is often more than the print itself.

What does delivery cost?
Freight costs are calculated by volumetric weight or size of the package and can be expensive, which is why we prefer to send our prints in tubes however we will work with you in determining the most cost effective means of getting your print to you safely. Delivery on every order is calculated and charged for at the point of sale.

What about international import duties?
The international freight charges do not include the applicable import duties or taxes that are due upon entry into the destination country. All duties and taxes are the responsibility of the customer, and must be paid at the time of delivery. As a guide only; the duty on one 100cm x 100cm print, payable in the UK, is currently, circa: £25 which will be collected on behalf of HMRC by DHL at the point of delivery.

How long will my print last?
We are committed to providing you with the highest quality prints possible. When giclee printing was first introduced, the longevity of the inks left something to be desired. In the past decade there have been huge advancements in print longevity due to the the extended permanence of the inks available. We have kept up with these advances every step of the way. All our prints are produced on high quality primed canvas using archival inks and are varnished with a industry specific UV varnish.

The term “archival” is one of the most abused within the inkjet printing industry. It has come to mean that the base product is both acid and lignum free (<1%), a fact guaranteed by the majority of cotton and cotton/polyester base products.

Virtually all canvas products sold by reputable makers for inkjet reproduction are archival by the above definition, yet their makers know that virtually none of them will survive more than 70 years without noticeable fading unless they are liquid laminated or covered by UV protecting glass.

So, the general consensus is that a canvas needs to be laminated or framed with UV protected glass to last longer than you will.

Do you need it to last that long?
Knowing this information, you need to ask yourself how long you actually want the print to last. There will be unavoidable extra costs to frame and laminate your prints, so is it worth it?

How can I pay for my artwork or print?
All orders are prepaid and include the cost of your chosen art and delivery to the UK. Import duties are not included and must be paid on receipt. See ‘what about international import duties.’

Payments can be made online via our Payfast payment facility or through our e-commerce solutions with DAT (Digital Age Technologies) both systems offer a secure online transaction facility via a third party service provider. We do not currently accept PAYPAL payments but are able to accept international bank transfers. Remember all orders must be paid in full before any artworks or prints are packaged and delivered. Please note that prices on our website do not include freight charges unless otherwise indicated.
